For two reasons.
First, because our lives are not perfect. We're usually hanging out on cloud 8 instead of cloud 9.
Sometimes cloud 7 or 4 or 2, but usually cloud 8. And we like it here.
Second, although I liked to pretend that I was waffling about having a sixth baby, I really knew I would. I would get that feeling that someone was missing all the time. Like when I'd be leaving somewhere with all the kids & counting heads in the back of the Suburban, & it would feel like I didn't have everyone. Weird, I know. But it happened alot.
That doesn't happen anymore.
Probably because every seat in the Suburban is full!
And we are truly on cloud 8, and loving it!
He's the first one to run to her & love on her when she fusses. And gets very distressed when she cries. He's so good with her & it is just the sweetest thing to watch.
I've been pleasantly surprised at how helpful the older kids have been with Caroline. I think I might even miss them when it's time to go back to school!
