Not sure what to title this...and other things.

I was going to write a post about our anniversary and then didn't. Then I was going to write a post about Madison and realized she'll be 2 months old next week, so I could wait on that...

And then I thought, "Oh I know..I'll just write about what it is like to be a family of 5"....and then I freaked myself out a little bit just thinking about it and turned my computer off.

Okay, not really. I just figured I could say a lot of those things in one post.

Anniversary - We celebrated 7 years last Sunday, March 20th. It was an awesome celebration too. Jason surprised me with a new Pandora bracelet AND Fossil watch. He spoils me. A lot. But he also knows that those 2 things meant a lot to me since they were both previously stolen. I gave him some cowboy boots. Well, he went with me to pick them out, but it was my idea. I was a little surprised at this, but since then he has already worn them to Gruene Hall, like every good cowboy does, AND he now has a twang to his voice. I've been waiting for this our whole marriage. ;) I love and adore my husband. I love and adore our journey together.

Madison - Actually, I will save this post for next week. She will be 2 months and that is a milestone around here. :)

Life with 3 kids - Well, it's good. No, it's better than "good", it's amazing. I have to admit that I was very scared to see what would happen with 3 children, but so far it's been more than I could have ever imagined. Jason and I both feel like our family is exactly how God wants it. I know for Jason it was even scarier to imagine 3 children, but he has said multiple times that he can't imagine it any other way. Reagan & Jackson both adore Madison. It's nice to have 2 little helpers too. Of course, Madison is the perfect baby, but more on that later. I am adjusting pretty well. I have my moments of craziness, but I was like that before kids too.

Jason and I have been so aware of the blessings God has given us. We have been bombarded and humbled by his gifts of love and provision in our lives. Seriously. Amen. Hallelujah.
