the blessing of kids

I usually check out Kelly's Korner to see what kind of link-up she will have on Friday.
When I saw large families as the link-up- I thought okay not for me.
I was surprised that she counted families with 4 or more kids, large.

When I think of large families I think of my girlfriend who is pregnant with her 7th!
Pretty Amazing.

After we had our first, I thought that might be it.
I always wanted a lot of kids, but just thought it might not happen.

I mean even one kid seemed like a lot of work. Then we decided to have another. A couple of miscarriages, and some discouragement, and we had our second girl.

I thought for sure that was it and told myself to be content with the 2 girls, so imagine my shock when we found out we were pregnant again when our second child was just 14 months.
And then this surprise happened.

Fast forward to being happy with three kids and then moving into our home and thinking maybe just one more would be nice.
The husband not really feeling it, but considering it and without making any final decisions, we find out number 4 is on its way.

Having 4 kids is awesome, tiring and just plain spectacular!

A lot of people ask me if we plan on having more and the answer is no. If the husband wanted more, I would, but we are very thankful and happy to have the kids we have.

I just wish they were all babies again.

It really does go by so fast!

And my biggest dream is to one day take in foster kids that need a place to stay and be loved.

But, I think the husband plans on traveling when the kids are older and out of the house.


I guess we will figure that one out when the time comes.
But, right now, today and everyday, we are blessed.

  6. Came over from Kelly's Korner. I completely agree - they grow up way to fast. I also have 4 and it seems to be that the more you have the faster it seems to go by!
