Children and Families

As I was getting Davilyn dressed this morning I started to retire some of the clothing that she is outgrowing. As she laid in her crib waiting for me, giggling and smiling, she looked so big. Like she grew overnight.

Here’s the thing… I have always wanted four children. Convincing Craig of that was my only obstacle (or so I thought), one that I could easily overcome. Then infertility sucked away years from our timeline and now I find myself saying that I will be happy and my family will be complete when we have three.

As I folded those tiny onesies, I prayed for the peace of knowing that our family is complete. That we will be blessed with one more and then, in my heart, I will know we are done.

It is a wonderful feeling to have your family complete, as you want it, not as IF does. Does this mean there is another on the way?

I just hope when that moment comes, my heart is happy and I am not left wishing for just one more.

oh I understand. I always felt like something was missing before baby N. I always felt that if it happened I would be so happy, I would be done. The couple of tries that didn’t work, I figured it just wasn’t meant to be. In the I am so thankful that it was meant to be, and I can tell you in my heart I feel peace and joy knowing my family of 3 boys is complete.

You know this post is so true….you just know when your family is complete…

I knew after 2 that I wanted a 3rd and I wondered if I may even want a fourth but the feeling stopped at 3 and it’s true you do feel complete x

I also need that feeling of my family being complete. Right now I feel as if we are missing one piece to our puzzle.
