it has really been heaven on earth. we love having 3 children...george said the first night that we were home that it felt more right. of course we have had our share of tough stuff. our big boy river is waking up in the middle of every night crying out for mommie and during the day he is carrying around monkey and puppy even though he knows they are supposed to just stay in his bed. flora cries "up" and wants me to carry her nearly every time i am holding walker. i apparently cannot keep 3 children groomed, seeing that teeth havent been regularly brushed and flora's hair is looking crazier than ever. but i wouldnt trade it for anything...all of this love and cuddling on our sweet newborn daughter.
