He's One and So Fun!

My littlest peanut is now one year old!

I think I've said this before but I had no idea the third baby would be such a blast. He's like the sweet little extra. And we all think so.

When I just had one baby, really, only Charlie got very excited over every little thing he did. But now, I have not only Charlie, but two big boys to be even more excited than I am. Two big brothers to dote on him and teach him tricks and follow him and keep him safe and knock him over in their zeal to protect him from - whatever threatens.

We just can't get enough of him. And the older boys have grown by leaps and bounds. They are helpful and they often look past what only they want to what the family needs (usually cheerfully!). They carry diaper bags for me, they do little household chores, and they LOVE their baby.

We still have lots of work to do before they're all raised and gone. And there are lots of times when we aren't cheerful and Mommy isn't patient, but I think our hearts are all in the right place. And the house is rather messy more often than not, the toys are often strewn about, the dishes are piled in the sink, but we tackle that stuff when we get the chance.

Wow. A five year old, a four year old, and a one year old. I didn't ever really think that mom would be me.
