"Life is Full!"

How could you not fall in love with these amazing kiddos we have been blessed with!!!!


I know so many of you have been asking me for an update and while I am trying to juggle my life with three kiddos ages 5 & under I will do my best to give you all that I have.

Francesca is starting Kindergarten this coming August 30th! I can not begin to tell you how much I don't want her to go. Everyone thinks I am crazy but just the thought of her gone all day long is killing me. What am I going to do with out her ~ my Francesca. Between shopping for her big school year and trying to get us all settled into life as a family of five, Francesca is doing amazingly well!

Annabelle has truly taken over and been Benjamin's advisor ~ to everything. I never dreamed she would accept him as well and she did and I never expected her to play with him as well as she does. I truly under-estimated her and she has once again proven me wrong. As for her personality, she is still as spicy as ever which at days are very trying but since arriving home on July 10th, she too has changed in so many ways!

now onto the one you are all asking for...

Our Benjamin!

Did I ever mention to you that he is the sweetest little boy I have ever meet?

Did I ever mention that he has stolen my heart and now not only do I have one man in my life ~ but now two?

Did I ever mention how much I love being the mother to a little boy and how I LOVE MY FAMILY OF FIVE?

My list can go on & on but that is not what you all truly want to hear. You all want to know how he is doing medically and I wish I had some answers for you all.

All I know is that he has an appointment with Children's here in DC on August 12th with two of the best surgeons on staff. We need to get his pooping/fistula problems corrected before anything else. All doctors are in agreement that this needs to be handle first for fear of kidney failure (which he is currently on medication to prevent). Other than that, there is a variety of things that "might be going on" but until the proper tests are done and the results are in....we will never know for sure. But first and foremost is taking care of his fistula problems.

Benjamin is just in love with his sisters ~ as they truly adore him as well! They all play extremely well together and it is these little things that make me smile several times through our day and count all that we have been blessed with!

I so wish and want to at this time post so much more but time (and my kiddos) will not allow me to. When asked, "How are things going with the 3 kids?" My answer is simple, "Life for me is full!" And I would not have it any other way.

Once Francesca has settled into her first big year of school and we have some confirmed information of our Benjamin, I promise I will do another post.

But for now...Life in this Family of Five is everything I ever imagined and dreamed of...and I am 100% loving every.single.mintue!!!
