Blessed in 2016

Oh 2016. What a year. There are strong feelings about this year. From everyone. From me, even. Because, look at these kids. Seriously. There was a time when we were so far beaten down in our infertility struggle that I never could have pictured the life we have now. It was hard to imagine life with a second baby, let alone a beautiful perfect third. But, in 2016 it's all a reality. 


A wonderful, messy, loud, beautiful reality. We are so blessed. Blessed with Henry. Blessed with Nora. Blessed with Augustus. 


We started the year in a much rockier spot. We had recently learned that Henry needed some intervention for some special needs that he struggles with. And, we had been trying for a baby for nearly a year. It was a difficult time. And, not to say those struggles have disappeared overnight. 


In many ways this has been a difficult year. It was a hard pregnancy. Having a 2-year-old can be trying. Henry received a diagnosis that needs to be managed on a day-to-day basis. But, not one day of this year has not been full of blessings. Full of joy. Full of laughter. We have so many incredible things to be thankful for. These three amazing humans that we get the privilege to guide to adulthood are just the very tip of the iceberg. 


And because I can't have a holiday post, without a picture of Henry's famous pout! And, really seriously with all these faces. I cannot help but stare at our Christmas card {from Tiny Prints} this year. Gah! I love them all. 


I hope you are as incredibly blessed in 2017! Happy Holidays!
