soon to be 3.

I love the first few hours after your baby arrives. You realize that this child is REALLY yours, that you are now responsible for them, and the love you feel is overwhelming. Of course that is followed by many sleepless nights, lots of crying and dirty diapers, but in those first few hours you don't even think about all that. I can't help but wonder if this will be the last time I have that feeling. As I smile to myself at my sleeping newborn, breathing in that sterile hospital smell I wonder if this time will be my last having that time.

...and before you know it they grow up.

It's hard to believe that soon there will be three. It still amazes me how different my boys are...I cannot help but think about who this little guy will be.
It's going to be quite a ride, andI know many sleepless nights lie ahead, but it'll all be worth it.

Oh, I could just squeeze their chubby cheeks! So that's what normal size babies look like ... they're so cute with actual baby fat! :) Those pictures are precious -- can't wait to meet #3!

How sweet. I always thought I would be a mother to all boys. There is something so special about that relationship. May they all love each other for all of their days!
