Three Is Finally The New Two

Do you ever look back through pictures of the previous year and wonder how you got to here?
These images were taken a year ago.
Three children was so new to me then, and now I'm a pro.
It's funny how good at life you can become with good practice.
Even when you switch into survival mode.
I didn't know I had that mode until this last year.
How quickly we adapt to change and familiarize ourselves with a new situation. Especially when that situation is adding a person to a family. The events leading up to and following a new baby are so surreal. Like a blip.
Then comes the experience and practice.
When I had Lena, everything was new and challenging. Now I savor the chance to do something with just one of them.

Getting to the number three was a no brainer for us.
The number four will come with lots of prayer and thought and prayer.
I typed prayer twice on purpose.
Maybe one day I will look back and say to myself,
Ha! Remember when it was just three?

For now I will enjoy feeling the settle after the birth of a baby.
It has taken nearly a year to accomplish that feeling.

And this is a good chapter in my life if I must say. Darn good.
And I thank the Lord for allowing any amount of clarity to recognize that.
Clarity speaks softly, and three children can be mighty loud.
