I sat in the hospital room on July 21, 2016, as we were getting ready to take Mikey home.  It had been a LONG few days.  Getting up early to get to the hospital on July 19, having our sweet boy and then spending a night in the NICU, finally having his siblings meet and hold him....Jimmy and I were sitting there with our new little bundle of joy.  I looked at him and said "can you believe this time next year that we are going to have a ONE, THREE and FIVE year old?".

And here we are now on July 29, 2017.  Charlie is going to be FIVE years old on Monday.  Maddie turned THREE on July 4 and our sweet little baby that was 9lbs on the dot when he made his way into the world, turned ONE on July 19 and weighs a whole 23lbs.

And you know what?  I can't believe how this last year flew by.  But I also can't believe how our sweet family just feels so right.  And how this sweet baby boy brought so much happiness to our family.  

I have this weird feeling of being completely overjoyed with happiness and then completely overwhelmed about three different times a day.  HA.  Totally normal, right?  I think that life with three kids and two full time jobs will do that to you.

So here I go.  Ready to finally blog about my three sweet baby's birthdays.  And relishing all the feelings I had when this picture was taken last July.
