Why Some Call Us Crazy

   After many months of gentle prodding from my wonderful husband I have finally started our blog. This is probably the scariest thing I have done in a long time, way scarier than giving birth, but we want our friends and family to be able to keep up with our growing family. Our growing family is one reason some call us crazy. We have three beautiful children and are currently expecting our fourth. Our oldest is Asa. He is the sweet and caring big brother. He is also extremely intelligent for his age and is ultra logical which can make for some very interesting conversations. Josiah is our second born. He is our snuggle bug who loves to help in the kitchen. Ziva is the baby for now. Most people who know her call her the diva because she knows what she wants and how to get it. We are so thankful God has chosen us to parent our precious gifts.
   The way we parent is another source of the crazy talk. We cloth diaper, babywear, breastfeed our children as long as they want to, cosleep and homeschool. We strive to parent in a way that points our children to their Savior. We hope this blog will show everyone that although our parenting choices are different than some, they are not as crazy as some believe. We also hope that this becomes a place where like-minded parents can come for support and encouragement.
   Please know that this blog will not be perfect. We are not perfect. Our family comes before this blog and although I desire to post reguarly I know that life with littles is unpredictable. I also want to apologize to my sweet sister-in-law and any one else that has an affinity for the english language. There will be many grammatical mistakes as I am no english wiz.
