Having Owen in our home has been such a special time. Newborns bring such a sweet spirit into a home. Perhaps it is because they just came from Heaven.
Today we decided to go decorate Gavin for St. Patrick's Day. It was a beautiful day and I felt so much love for these four boys as I took their picture. Each one of them has blessed my life so much.
Lately I have been thinking about the way life has played out for our family. I commented to Jason that Heavenly Father knew what He was doing when He placed each one of my boys into my life. In one way or another - each one has helped me more than they could imagine.
It has been a true testimony to me that He knows us and He knows what we need. He also knows what we can handle and He knows when to give us a little "break." He knew at each pivotal point in my life what I would be able to accomplish and who would be there to help me.
I know He knows me. I know He has watched over our family and I know He loves my boys.
I was so worried Jack would be upset when we brought Owen home. He has been the center of our (and many others') world for the past two years. He has gotten all the attention he could ever ask for over his little two years. Now he has to share the time and attention. He actually has done pretty well . . . in fact, he thinks Baby Owen is a pretty cool guy to have around.
