Coming up for air…..

In between diaper changes, breast feeding, disciplining my 2 year old, and trying to rest my body- I thought I would post some pictures of our newest family member. He was born on Friday Sept 5th- weighing in at 7 lbs and 8 oz. We are excited and exhausted all at the same time. If anyone has advise on how to raise 3 children please let me know!! I am quite overwhelmed at the moment- on top of the raging hormones!!

    CONGRATULATIONS on your Precious Delivery!!! Your children are beautiful!

    Advise . . . hummmmmm take one day at a time and rest when you can. I also have the other children help me with the “little” things. Diaper changes – getting the diaper, wipees or poop bags. Helping to tidy up, keeping one another busy, etc.

    Congratulations!!! You look so cute surrounded in bed by your three kids!! So sweet!

    Hang in there… it will get better and easier. I agree with the comment above: Take one day at a time! Celebrate the small moments of peace and laugh through the many moments of chaos!

    You have blessed your kids with family for life through their siblings!

    Advise: lock your bedroom door while saying “Mommy’s not here right now, leave a message after the beeeeep!”

  8. Amanda, I just saw your question about my paint color. That warm golden color is Whole Wheat by Sherwin Williams. Great color & I have another one on that strip downstairs, Believable Buff. It’s a great color strip.
