Hunter’s one little dimple melts my heart 😍 I have also started to feel little butterflies when Madden has been moving but today y’all, it felt like he did a backflip! It really took me by surprise! I love feeling those baby kicks 😍🤰🏼

Proud big sister! This is my brother Ryan when he was just a few days old. I was four years-old and he was almost half my size! He got the height genes, and I missed out in that area.❤️ #bigsister#siblinglove#tbt
Gwen and Arik are 16 months apart. We planned them close, because we always thought two kids would be perfect and we wanted them to grow up together. Man, is it true having a second child can make you feel like you know nothing about motherhood 😬😂. .
Gwen is a leader. She is full of compassion, loves to help, teach, and make people laugh. She will say hello to anyone. She makes friends with kids everywhere. She is stubborn and strong willed. Certain things cannot stray from the way they are done or in her mind it's chaos 😂. She is super creative. She has an insane memory! She is smart as a whip, and catches on quick. We believe she is a crystal child 💎. .
Arik is a tinkerer. He wants to figure out how things work. He has a lot of passion when he does something or speaks. He's very sensitive and that sometimes translates very loudly...even in stores 😬😂. But he is also very shy. He loves to dance and has a great ear for beats. He loves to smile and make others smile. He is sensitive to the needs of others. His intuition is spot on and he is always trying to cheer people up when down. We believe he may be a rainbow child 🌈. .
With their large differences come some challenges, but for the most part all I've seen is growth we as parents couldn't bring them. Arik will dance anywhere...for the longest time Gwen would never dance, and now when she sees him she goes for it! Arik used to cry in the car, and Gwen singing to him would ease his discomfort. They have both caused each other to relax and see things differently. They look out for each other. They trust each other at ages 3 and almost 2. It's beautiful. I have a feeling they will grow up to be two completely different people who will somehow always be closely connected 💙. .
They have taught me and Mike so much too. We love experiencing life with them as a team 💙. .
If you have more than one child, are they similar or different? What are the age gaps? I love to hear about other families!
3 years ago, we became parents to a curious, spunky, stubborn, brilliant, inquisitive little girl. Thank you letting us be your parents and share life with you. Everyday is a new adventure and while we don't get everything right, we'd lasso the moon for you. You deserve the world. Happy Birthday, Caroline Elizabeth 💕 (I promise I'll only cry one more time today!)
