Seeing Baby

Today's favorite moments included . . .

. . . watching my little baby move on the ultrasound screen this morning.  The doctor thought she could guess the gender, but then she changed her mind.  It's to early to really tell for sure, so I guess we'll just remain in suspense until July.

. . . friends coming to dinner with their four children.  Our home was a madhouse after dinner, but we had fun.

Yeah, KimBlue! Three will throw you over the edge . . . but only for about 6 months. Or a year. :)

Wait . . . is this baby number four? In that case you are a pro. And my hero. Bless you.

Yup, this is number four, and probably our last one. And yes, three was crazy for the first few months.

Two women I know with seven kids each say that number three was the hardest transition for them; after that they already had the skills they needed to roll with things a little better. It probably also helped that their oldest children were able to help out as additional siblings joined the family.

Personally, I found my first child to be the hardest transition because my life changed so much all at once, and I had so little clue how to adapt at first. Two was fairly easy. Three was chaos for a while, but not nearly as much of a personal upheaval as number one and bit by bit I figured things out.
