Day 1 With 3 Kids…

Today was the first day of an exciting new chapter of my life. I woke up today with three children in my life. With no idea what to expect, and a lot of physical challenge with recovery from labor & delivery, I was excited to move into my first day as a mom of 3.

On December 3rd, I delivered my third child via cesarean at 7:52pm. My body was convulsing and I was having doubts (although it was a little late at the time) about having another baby. What kind of effort will this really take?

My 6 year old talked incessantly. My two year old cried just as much. The baby was constantly calling, and I quickly realized that this will take a lot of patience and love.

The day was challenging, but teamwork prevailed. My husband and mother in law took on the majority of the weight as I stayed with the baby for most of the day. Creating time for the older two to visit with their younger sister was important and it proved to be a great strategy for letting the girls get to know each other. It was so much fun seeing them smile and stare into those little eyes.
