Third Time’s a Charm

Isn’t he a charming little fella?
 We sure are enjoying having a newborn around here again. The girls bring a sense of fascination and wonder toward their brother. Spicy A is definitely playing the older, protective, extremely affectionate role and Sweet G, at the tender age of 18 months is showing such mature, motherly, big sister qualities that melt my heart and put a lot of grown mothers nowadays to shame. 
As for mommy, I’m still getting acquainted with the male anatomy in a whole new light as I stand dumbfounded at the changing table, utterly amazed and entertained at the powerful spraying capabilities of such apparatus.
Thanks to my wonderful momma, and her tremendous help up-keeping the household, cooking meals, taking the girls for fun outings, naps at her house and slumber parties, I feel good. I feel rested. I actually feel in control of things and I’ve been able to enjoy a lot of special one-on-one time with my little man and still find time for myself.   
With so much help with the girls, I’ve been reminded how easy simple it is to take care of just one child.
I’m sure the chaos & exhaustion is lurking  just around the corner (once mom decides to take a day for herself) but for now, we’re enjoying some peace.
