transitioning to THREE kids

I literally can't get enough of these boys.
I could just stare at them all day long, mesmerized by the fact that I made them!
I love finding their similarities and differences… not only in looks, but personalities.
This transition to three kids hasn't been the smoothest thing I've ever done, but it is certainly not because there is a lack of love and affection. Brody and Beckam absolutely adore Bennett.You wouldn't believe the amount of kisses that Bennett gets everyday… seriously hundreds. I'm talking multiple kisses in a row from both brothers at the same time ALL. DAY. LONG. I've even had to make a few house rules regarding kissing… only on his head {where there is hair}, not while he is nursing, and not while he is sleeping. You'd think that I was torturing these boys when trying to enforce the above rules.
These big brothers have been troopers through it all, and we are adapting to our new normal. 
This process might be a bit easier if the weather was a tad bit warmer and accommodating also, because these boys can't be cooped up in a small little farm house all day. 
Talk about stir crazy!
I, particularly, have been trying to figure out how to balance it all smoothly, with grace and patience. That is way easier said than done. 
I want my main focus to be being a good mom and wife - which in turn means that while they are awake I need to give them a lot of undivided attention. 
My goal is to do the chores/bookwork/blogging after the kids bedtime, put the phone down, let them make messes {and have them clean them up} and provide a lot of love for these crazy boys.
I can't wait to see what the future holds for us all.
I just hope it happens in super slow motion, because the past five years have kind of sped by.
Meanwhile, you can find us giving Bennett plenty of kisses, having random home photoshoots, running wild and breaking out into spontaneous dance parties.

ALSO, if you are on the fence about having a third kid, you should totally do it. It's worth it.
