Life with three kids is amazing and crazy. I am always running somewhere with one child or two or three. When my stepson Jonah comes down to visit it is an absolute madhouse here. The intensity in the apartment is insane. The noise just makes me want to jump out of my skin. I have to really focus on relaxing and not let it get to me. I got some advice from a friend at the gym who said you just have to say who cares and not fight it. I know that I am a control freak and want order, but I have to just relinquish all control and know that it will be ok.
Having Dana is the best thing that we have done. She is an absolute joy and delight to have and Marlee and Bradley just cannot get enough of her. It would have been best to have twins. That would have eliminated the kids fighting over her. They both just want to hold her, kiss her and play with her all the time. We had a beautiful baby naming party for her last week. We had about 100 adults and over 40 kids there. There were more people there than at our wedding. It was a wonderful party and lots of fun. Dana was her smiling happy self as she always is. Marlee and Bradley were in their element and having all their friends around and I was so happy to have my friends and family there with me to celebrate Dana’s big day.
