You would think that it would just keep getting harder. And it does. But, it also just keeps getting sweeter. Adam Joseph is one sweet little man. He has a very mild temperament, smiles a lot, and sleeps great (at night). He loves music and smiles most often at Gabriel. He is still working on figuring out if Anthony loves him or hates him... and I think Anthony is trying to figure that out too... one moment he is kissing him, the next he is squeezing his legs or arms as hard as he can or trying to aim right at his head with a favorite toy. Yeah, a new interesting life... combating the love of Anthony for Adam. It is funny how when another soul enters your life, you really can never imagine what your life was like without him. Adam, our third little peanut, has made our life full of little boys!!
Many days I feel as if I am drowning. In the feeding of three kids, the mess, the laundry, the being awake in the middle of the night and then early mornings, the changing his clothes and then changing mine because of puke, the diapers... ohh, the diapers, the groceries, the cooking, the quality time, the reading, the schedules, sleep strikes... and the list goes on. The good Lord knows how to sanctify me. He is doing well at it. I thank Him for his grace. But, I couldn't love this vocation any more.
It is a sweet sweet life.
Thank you, Jesus, for three beautiful little boys and one amazing dude for a husband.
