Patchie is Three!

We're back! Atticus is two weeks old, and I am starting to emerge from the new baby fog...a little bit anyway. Enough to celebrate the third birthday of my now middle son, Elias. We had a fun little party for him on Sunday- a few friends, some snacks, and a sundae bar. It was a beautiful day and we were able to be in the backyard, where the kids played knights and croquet.
It is a little hard to believe that my "baby" is three years old and that my other baby is going on three weeks old. Not to mention that other big guy who is going to be seven in a few weeks. Seven!! Where did the years go? Life certainly is full and busy these days. I am trying to make a very conscious effort to slow things down and enjoy the everyday moments of life with all my boys. Having a newborn helps- I seem to move from my bed to the couch to the rocking chair all day and night long. Lots of time reading, thinking, or watching the big boys play while nursing Atti. It is a very sweet time, this newborn time- a very dreamy, mellow time- until the crazy three year old comes barreling into the room, brandishing sword and shield!

We have that same Gladiator shield/sword/helmet set (only on black). We have got to get our weapon loving little boys together before they stop loving dress-up!!
