Take a walk with me...

Each new baby in our house triggers so many memories of the previous children. 



 I find myself wandering down memory lane,...




 ...so very thankful that with each additional child...




...I have more confidence...




 ...and less anxiety.  





I am also so thankful that I didn't have a blog...




...(or a Facebook account, for that matter)...




...the first time around.  




Parenting is such a joy...




...it's nice not to have a written reminder of the challenges of the past.

Month One



What a wild, crazy, blissful month this has been!  

Our discoveries...

...G has found some major fans in his siblings, especially the one closest to his age.  And he's gained three whole pounds!

...I have found some fabulous helpers in my older two, and some peace about my self-imposed guilt.  You mean I can't be everything to everyone all the time?  It's going to be OK. 

...B learned that everyone else applying for jobs in the Classics this year is in the same boat that he's in.  

....Z can ride a seven-speed bicycle!  

...M's reading has taken off!  The Happy Hollisters is a current favorite.

...T can jump!  And jump!  And jump!
