Counting our Blessings

Tonight I had one of those really special moments when you just stop and take it all in.  Time seems to stand still for a moment and let you breathe it in.  I had both boys snuggling with me on the couch (which doesn't happen a lot since Lucas is a wild man) and I was overcome with the feeling of being the luckiest person in the world.  I leaned in and smelled both boys' heads.  They smelled like baby shampoo, and little boy hair, and cookies (yes they had cookie crumbs in their hair).  Only a mother knows the true joy of smelling their own baby's hair.  I must have had a huge smile on my face because when I looked over at Kurt he smiled back and we both knew what the other was thinking.  We are so lucky and so blessed to have these 3 little miracles in our lives. 

Four years ago we were frustrated with all the "trying" to get pregnant.  Three years ago we were still grieving the loss of our little girl.  Two years ago I was on bedrest in the hospital trying to "bake" the trio a little longer.  Last year was our first Christmas with our little 11 month old babies.  And now we are here with our nearly two year old children.  What an amazing ride it has been so far.  I thought I'd celebrate with a little blast from the past- Christmas 2009 and living at Northside Hospital.  The babies were born 2 weeks later!
