Wonderful Exhaustion

I am not going to pretend I have it anywhere near as tough as Greta does, because it's no contest. I get enough sleep each night, and I get to escape to work and hang out with adults all day long. Nevertheless, after having kids I do feel even more of a push to work my butt off and bring home the bacon. Speaking of bacon, I got home tonight and grilled up some steaks, fed the babies, cleaned the kitchen and all of the sudden it was 9:00 p.m. I felt like I could instantly fall asleep. The thing is though, the exhaustion is wonderful. It is more rewarding than I ever thought it would be and every moment I spend with these little guys makes me completely happy. All along, these babies have needed us, but it wasn't until recently that it started to feel like they actually love us. If I walk into the room while they are sleeping and one of them happens to spot me, they become wide eyed and obviously excited. Before long, three little people will think I am the coolest man on earth, but little do they know I am the farthest thing from it. Here are some more pictures from the weekend.

You fall in to bed exhausted because you have taken care of 3 babies. I keep waiting for the time when I'm not just pooped at the end of every day as my "babies" really seem grown up next to yours! They will keep you hopping for some time to come. It was so cool when you wrote that you can tell these guys LOVE you. There are no words to describe how awesome that is. They are blessed to have been born into a wonderful family! Lisa D.
