We are in full swing family-of-five-mode now. It's pretty crazy to be mom to three boys, and that is noted pretty much wherever we go. I get a lot of "you don't look old enough to have 3 kids!" which is funny because I'm never sure what to say... I'm really not old enough I suppose!
Roman has started to sleep more *hooRAY* so neglected hobbies are beginning to resurface and find a place in the daily schedule. Knitted blankets will be finished, and dresses will be sewn. Ben bought a peony plant for me this weekend and I planted it right outside my dining room window so I can look at it 1.5 million times a day. I love it so much I want to marry it. Seriously my heart is actually swelling right now just thinking about it. And a friend divided her irises and gave me a bunch so now I'm going to have a forest of irises. I'm stooooked. I can't wait to be a master gardener so I don't kill all my plants.
Anyway life is good and having a newborn (and two other kids) is craaazy. But at least Benson never ever tires of holding and loving Roman, so it's nice to have help. And it's about the sweetest thing in the world to watch big brother bounce and shush baby brother to soothe his cries.
