I find myself shaking my head all day long... can I really be the mother of THREE?

I used to look at families with three kids and they seemed of another world. Grown ups. Old grown ups. I babysat for them as a kid and I still remember it like it was yesterday. I don't feel much older than I did then. Their houses smelled of bubble gum toothpaste and dryer sheets and a hint of pee. Yup. Pee.

I am SOOO a mom of three.

Such a precious photo! I am newly married and we have always dreamed of having 3 kids so I'm hoping that one day, I can also look back and say... can I really be the mother of THREE?

LOVE your blog and beautiful images x

I say that daily . . . but with TWO! :)

Just wait: the pee smell will only intensify as Finn gets bigger! Boys are boys!

FRAME THAT PHOTO. It's gorgeous - and HOW do you get these perfectly sleepy babies? I love that even with his 2 busy sisters at his side, Finn finds slumber.

I felt like three was a totally different world than one or two. Not because of age, but because *they* outnumbered *us* It was like one was a couple with a kid, two was a couple with two kids, and three ... well, three was a family. A full-blown, real-life family.

Four was nothing after three. Just sayin'.
