Well, we had our youngest baby Acorn in April. She was 9 lbs 8 oz and very healthy. She is now a cruising, curious 8 month old. We are happy about that.
Our two older girls Peanut and Pecan are healthy and happy, learning more and more each day. It's wonderful to watch them grow and learn.
It can be challenging to have 3 kids 3 years old and below. I will not lie and say it is easy, it isn't. The tantrums, the mess they make. But it is very worthwhile and really touches my husband and my heart when they reach out to us for a hug, when they say "I love you Mommy, I love you Dada!". We love watching them interact with each other and how they describe each other as "my best friend". See, siblings don't have to be jealous of one another. You just have to be completely fair and make sure to give equal attention to each child. No favoritism.
It is funny how in a few short years our life has changed. I used to be much more selfish. I couldn't imagine having to give up a lot in my life. I would say I never really understood how it is to sacrifice my wants for the sake of another. But with our children, it is a pleasure to. We would go without first before they ever would. We cannot imagine life without them.

I still can't believe 2012 is here. Time goes by too fast. I remember when I was little a whole afternoon seemed to drag on and on. Nowadays, I blink, and an entire year goes by. We hope to get to do a lot of things with our life this new year. Moving down south, meeting new people, watching our kids grow. Oh hold your kids, and cherish every minute, it really goes by so, so fast. Too fast.
So from our Family to Yours, we wish you a Happy 2012! We hope it would be productive!
