Oh how I love boys, the simplicity, the sweetness, the love! My little man turned 7, the shock and horror... he is growing up way too fast. 2 1/2 years ago he was my baby and he played the part well.
The last few years have been a whirlwind around here and now he finds himself holding tight with the "middle child" title. Except he doesn't have middle child qualities...he is quiet, shy, uncomplicated, and a complete rule follower/perfectionist.... He may need to get the message that the middle child needs to make some noise to get their much deserved attention...especially in this house of chaos.
We did have a night bonfire...our family favorite weekend activity and the kids ran around like mad... We also took the whole crew bowling the next morning... oh that was a barrel of laughs. Fun stuff.
I've been an emotional mess lately... I think I am finally coming off the craziness of the past few years and starting to settle into our new rhythm. We have been either in the process of adopting or just adjusting to a new groove constantly over the past couple years and it has been really hard to find my mama bearings. I can't believe we adopted 3 times in 2 1/2 years... that just seems wild! Especially since the hubby and I never really started out to have a big family... I have been quite sentimental lately and looking through old pics... I think it is funny because we all look so different...
I had all my hair chopped off as a gut reaction to finding out we were going to have THREE children.. I didn't know how I was going to handle being the mom of three...ha ha ha ha ha. Little did I know :) We feel so blessed as we truly feel like we have the coolest and best group of kiddos on earth, our hearts could pop with love and gratitude for each one of them...but reality..we are far from finding our groove for perfecting this parenting gig... We do have a load of fun though.
