Here we go again! I love reading people’s blogs, and find it fascinating, and also satisfying to the nosy side of my personality. 🙂 I had a blog awhile ago, but getting pregnant with Boy #3 and breaking my foot halfway through the pregnancy pretty much ended it. Not to mention the fact that the title of that blog no longer was applicable once adding Boy #3.
So, I’ll take this post to introduce myself, my family, and the evolving purpose of my blog. First off, we’ll have to work with made-up names to keep all the weirdos out there from knowing to much info about me or my kids. I can’t really come up with a fitting name for me, other than Mrs. Stamper. This pretty much highlights the main obsession in my life other than my kids, which is stamping….as in Stampin Up, making cards, making scrapbooks, and making any other paper crafts I can figure out how to make! In fact, sometimes I want to throw parties just so I can make adorable invitations and party favors!
Mr. Stamper is actually a physician with 2 years and 2 months left of residency. 🙂 It has been a long and challenging road, which will hopefully be worth it once we dig out from all of our med school loans in 20 years! Still, I truly admire him for his dedication to his profession and to helping people.
Lucas is our oldest boy. He’s 4, as he proudly tells EVERYONE who crosses his path! He is our difficult child…stubborn, challenging, compulsive, obsessive, and extremely high energy.
Avery is our second boy, who will be 2 in 3 weeks! He is jolly, tenderhearted, and very calm and laid back! Don’t get me wrong, he is definitely entering his terrible twos though!
Finally, Harper was born in January and is our third beautiful boy. He has been a wonderful and easy baby so far. He is also very laid back, but quite a bit more serious than Avery.
And the million dollar question I get asked at least once a day, are we going to try for a girl? Well, we are going to have a fourth child, yes. Do I care if it is a girl, no. Would I love a girl, of course! Would I love a boy, of course! Mostly, I pray so hard that when we have this fourth, that he/she will also be blessed with good health just like our first 3 boys!
I hope to use this blog for a variety of purposes. One, to chronicle the life of a tired, overwhelmed, yet very happy mother to three boys (and counting!). Second, I will use this opportunity to pass on any bits of advice and experiences that I hope others will find useful, including product reviews! Is there a third, seems like it but I can’t think of it for now! I’m sure this blog will be constantly evolving though.
