when does the whirlwind slow down?

Posted by in Uncategorized

it’s adam’s FOURTH birthday today. he’s been with us for a whole four years and 9 1/2 months, and i’m just slammed with emotion over it today.

when rowan turned one, i was a blubbering fool remembering every last detail of his birth. but i thought it was because i was 8 months pregnant with sawyer. but this year, i’m finding myself just as emotional over the details of adam’s birth, specifically his brothers’ reaction to his birth, and their very young ages.

as i look at my 4-, 5-, and 6-year-old boys today, i am amazed that they were every babies or toddlers, making our lives incredibly busy. and now?  we have three boys who spend their days hanging out in the pasture, actually doing chores! where are my toddling babies asking for milk in  a sippy cup?

i’m thankful every day for their lives, and the gift i’ve been given of mothering them.

happy 4th birthday adam henry! we love you like crazy!
