I have always really wanted to have 3 children.
I am so lucky to have 3 beautiful, wonderful children. Each one of them is such an important part of our family. I cannot imagine how it would be if they weren't all 3 here, being them.
I almost didn't dare ask the universe for another baby after the first two were so spectacularly successful. But I'm so glad I did. I wondered if that was asking for too much, taking too much, risking too much.
Even though my third pregnancy, like the others was straightforward I think it caused me the most anxiety until he was here in my arms.
What I was never anxious about though was whether there was enough love to go around. I knew our hearts would stretch with love for our new baby. I knew Brodie and Grier would make room, budge up and hold out their arms for their baby sibling. And they did. I told you they were pretty fantastic.
Oh Baxter, you are missing piece.
Most people's lives are not storybook perfect, ours is no different. But some dreams really do come true.
Also watching a baby sleeping is the most peaceful pastime that ever was.
