And then there were three....

 I always, always wanted a bunch of kids. 

My husband said "One", I said "Five".
He said "Maybe two" and I said "Maybe four".
I said "Fine, three."  He said "No way." 

It's been four years and every holiday I have asked for "One more." 

I *Finally* have the "one more" I begged for.

And you know, the transition has been nothing short of magical.  Truly.  It's been over 3 weeks now and going from 2 kids to 3 kids has been easier than going from none to one or one to two.

Both kids truly love her.  They are helpful, loving, patient and gentle with her so far. She is just such a good baby that she is so easy to enjoy.

 It feels like just yesterday I had the other two. When Adrian was born, I was so nervous about doing things "right", had an extremely clingy baby and hadn't quite figured out how to continue projects through babywearing.  It was a lot of figuring things out.

With Audra, I figured things out, she was a good baby, but we listed our house, had multiple showings a week and bought the farm while I was on maternity leave. And then moved a couple weeks after I started back up work.  Such a busy and stressful time. 

This pic is Adrian and Audra in the same dump truck as the first couple of pics. Audra a newborn and Adrian not yet two. Adrian happens to be wearing the same hat in both pics! Feels like this picture was just yesterday...

With Anna-Kate, although there's much to do around the farm, I am definitely making time to enjoy every minute of having a newborn.  I am just loving having her so much. I am constantly thanking my husband for my "one more" I begged for. It truly is such a happy time for me.  Not only do I have my 3rd baby, but I am home on maternity leave enjoying my first two, who have just embraced the big brother/big sister gig with open arms.

I'm going to keep loving these moments of perfection, for I know they are fleeting. In a blink of an eye, years will pass and this will feel like just yesterday.  Snuggling up with my favorites...if you need me, that's where I'll be.
