on cloud 8

When I first started this blog, I tried to think of a cute, clever name for it, and eventually came up with 'on cloud 8'.

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!

So now we're a party of 8.

And we are truly on cloud 8, and loving it!

This little guy, I would have to say, out of all my boys, is the most enamored of his baby sister.

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!
