the 5 of us

this was taken the 1st full day we were together as a family.
so crazy looking back at pictures from just 2 months ago... 
how much our amos has changed.
(embracing the camera here)

from the beginning he fit right in with his brothers. 
so cute how he watches them to see what he's "supposed to do".
jude has grown in his responsibilities as a big brother. 
he cares for his little brothers sooo well (unless they have a toy he wants).

learning to love this boy well.
grateful my Father didn't have to "learn" to love me well.
He just did & does... because He's God & He's good.

all 3 boys make each other laugh so much. my favorite thing to listen to lately...
sammy & amos dying laughing at each other about who knows what. such sweet sounds.

(we were headed to the pool so the boys were still in their pjs. ;))

living in the loudness & craziness & beautifulness (not a word) that is the barker family.
so grateful, so frustrated (at times), so humbled, so weak, 
so in love with these 4 guys.
thank you gracious & good good GOOD Father!
