Having a newborn at home again has been nothing short of magical - most of the time.  In all honesty there have been several times in these first few weeks that I have sincerely asked myself how people do his - have two children (forget about three!). But as we've been getting back into the swing of things and learning to let some things slide I can honestly say life has never been better.  We're learning together and figuring this out.  We're tired, things are busier, the house is never quite clean, and laundry is more endless than usual but we are so happy and so so lucky.  These two little ones are the most precious things in our world.  At night when we Maddie and Beckham are both in bed, Josh and I talk about just how blessed we are to have these sweet babies in our family.  Life is so good.

I wondered when I was pregnant how my heart would ever find room to love another, but these past three weeks have shown me exactly how that is possible.  I feel like my heart has grown and my capabilities are trying to keep up.  I love, appreciate, and adore Maddie even more and my tiny innocent Beckham has proved to me just how strongly I can love someone so new and helpless.  This motherhood thing is pretty amazing.

He is just darling! I am nervous about the whole 2 kid thing too, and Elleah's a really independent child! Congrats to you and your new family!
