Today was a great day. I haven't said that often lately. I took the kids shopping at the outlets. There were no melt downs. Not even an inkling of one. Delia rode in the stroller without complaints. Ben followed along and was such a good boy. I found more cute boy things than girl things. Score! The boys will even match this summer at the pool. Sorry, D, but they don't make coordinating swimsuits for you where we shop. The kids played at the playground afterward. Bray slept his entire nap time peacefully. We had hot dogs at the food court and Ben said, "My hot dog is delicious! Isn't it beautiful, Mommy?" Haha. He thought it was beautiful because it was so colorful with the ketchup and mustard. This has just been one of those days that remind me that our life now with three kiddos will get easier (and more challenging in other ways, I'm sure). It has been done before. I'm not the first to feel overwhelmed, but I really needed this day. So, here are a few faces of my littlest man who I love and adore, even though he has pushed me *almost* to my breaking point. I have been so blessed with the little people in my life. Sorry for the long post, just feeling grateful today!

He's adorable. Love the bottom middle one.

I remember feeling that way after my 3rd was born. Seems like 2-4 months was the hardest. It'll get easier :-)

What a handsome little guy! I love series photos like this when you catch differnt little faces of the same little person. That middle bottom one is adorable!! Very cute. Days like today are the ones that keep you going and give you the strength to get through the not so good ones ;) So glad you had a wonderful day!!

Braden is growing so fast. What a cutie he is. I'm glad you had a good day, and got out without too much trauma.

Great collage! He is so cute!

I know what you mean. I thought I was doomed and never going out in public again after we had our third, Caroline. It was rough for a couple of months and then...there are those good days. When I had days like that? Like the one you had? I thought I actually knew what I was doing as a mommy...things were lookin' up. I hope your tricky days with three are fewer and fewer and you get more and more Beautiful Hotdog Days!
Love the photos of your littlest dude. Especially bottom center. :o)
