It's amazing how going from a family of three which feels so complete, goes to four and feels that much more whole and complete. This may sound cheesy but it's the truth of the matter: who would've thought that when you felt your heart was so FULL for your own little family, that it just grows that much more with another addition. No scientific measurement required or equation to prove it, so people will just have to take my word for it that love for others grows exponentially and there's no end point. I'll call it the 3.14.... version of endless.
Not only that but I cannot believe how good looking my kids are. Why should I play it down? They are quality cute! Mary Poppins thought she was practically perfect in every way, well she has nothing on my kids.
A little bit more on our new addition. He was born on January 4th, 2009 at 8lb 6oz. His name is Grady Daniel Kae Trim. Grady because it's a cool name. Daniel, after my uncle who I've always looked up to. And Kae, an ode to brothers.
A few days ago, I was just looking into Grady's face and I can't quite describe what I saw. He is so special to me and being so tiny in my arms, I just see how pure he is. At this point in his life, everything he learns will be taught by me and Lane. We are trying to do more to teach Porter and soon Grady, the things that will help them gain a testimony of the gospel.

Welcome back to the blogging world! How I've missed you! Grady is the cutest, congrats again. And I really liked the exponential love theory. I know I love Cohen like crazy, so when people have their second child I always think, "Hmmm, I wonder if they REALLY love their second like their first." Glad to know it's true. Guess I won't stop after one kid afterall. haha.

Oh, I like that baby! He's sure cute. I so know what you mean about your full heart grows an xtra lobe or something and fills right up when that new one comes into the world. It's amazing how our capacity to love just grows with each baby, I love it!!
