In some ways, not a lot has changed—Maggie is still developing (thankfully outside of the womb this time), Davey’s hair is a bit longer and he enjoys styling it (he’s no longer allowed to get haircuts from his Dad), Josie’s inherent hog-calling talent has been wasted on singing and yelling funny things at the dinner table, and Kate continues to revel in the fun of reading chapter books. Of course, there are other ways in which our lives have changed forever. As we consider the past two years, we look back with intense gratitude. Life is so good. We are grateful to have four wonderful, beautiful, unique children. We are grateful to have incredible family and friends who love us. We are grateful to feel God’s love for us and recognize His hand in our lives. If we could go back in time and share some bits of advice with our 2012 selves we would undoubtedly tell ourselves, "Prepare yourselves for zany Disney songs involving a snowman that you'll never get out of your head, invest in Netflix, and get ready for some of the most amazing years of your lives because it just keeps getting better."
