Meet Thing 3...

May 2007...
  • I've officially been  a "mom" for 1 month. I have 2 boys. Ages 3 yrs. & 15 months (exhausted in every sense of the word.
  • We went to our first "family Phillie's game" (and our last...so far)
  • While at the game with a friend...she speculates...
  • Boys are in bed. Josh is watching TV. I run to the store to get a couple "things" we need.
  • Come home. Go upstairs. Wait 2 min. (have you figured it out yet?)
  • I cry...my friends speculations were correct...I'm pregnant. Oh no.
I felt insufficient as a wife and mother.
Overwhelmed by the needs of the 2 children we already had.
HOW were we going to manage with another?
I felt guilt, sadness, fear, loss of self...

I don't know what I was so worried about.

Bryce, is a constant source of joy in our lives.
In my life.
He adores his brothers and has taken it upon himself to care for each of their hearts.
He is sensitive and thoughtful.
He likes to have fun.
He is super smart & capable.
He is a delight.

From the moment he was born...before I had even laid eyes on him...I was in love...and I declared that day, "I have to do this again"!

Meet Bryce, our "Thing 3"...

Bryce's arrival changed our lives dramatically.
3 boys in 9 months. (WOW!)
That was not our plan...

"For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord..."
Jeremiah 29:11








Thank you Lord, for having Bryce in YOUR plans.
My world would be less without him in it.

  2. Awww, how sweet. You absolutely must print this and save it for when he's bigger. Sure it may still be on the web, but just in case.

    Everyone should be so lucky to have a mom who loves him so very very much!
