Thankfully, in our case, everything turned out perfectly, and we are blessed to have Kate as a part of our family. I thank God every day for her. In the past 4 1/2 years of marriage, Jake and I have been reminded over and over that God is in control and His plan is usually quite different than what we have planned. When God throws you a curve ball, trust that He knows what is best.
While it certainly has been challenging having 3 kids 3 and under, you know what? I wouldn't change it. We thought we were perfectly happy with our 2 kids, a girl and a boy, and were not "planning" on having any more. But Kate has brought so much joy to our family. She is seriously the sweetest little thing and such a great baby. It is not easy and often times I am trying not to go crazy, but so many times I look and Kate and feel like she is my breath of fresh air. When we first found out that we were having a third baby I thought "why would God want me to have another baby when I can hardly handle the two I already have??" And that's honestly how I felt. And sometimes I still feel a little out of control with the three kids, but Kate is just what we needed. Every time I look at her she brings a grin to my face. She is awesome and I CAN'T wait to see my kids grow up together, so close in age. It's going to be great. Thank you God for blessing us with a healthy and happy baby Kate!!
Our sweet baby Kate- we are SO glad she is a part of our family!
