First off, Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope your day is filled with lots of love and laughter.
Well I did it! We are now at my #1 (earthly) thing I love….and of course it’s no surprise that it’s my sweetie. Steven is seriously the best guy in the whole wide world. He’s a great friend, hubby, and father, but the thing I love most about him is that he’s a Godly man. He’s one of those guys that can do a little bit of everything. He is so helpful with the kids and they absolutely adore him. He takes such good care of all of us. He works hard to provide for a big family. He’s just amazing.
So without getting carried away because I could seriously go on and on and on about how great he is, I thought I’d do a fun Get to Know Us game. I’ve been seeing people post these questions and answers about their spouse, so I thought it would be fun to do the same.

So this year I’m starting a new series of posts titled, Did You Know. This is my way to letting you know a little more about our family besides the day-to-day events. So here we go….
Did you know…..that Brady is only 2 years and 3 days older than the quints? His birthday is on March 15 and they were born on March 18. While I was pregnant with the quints and getting closer and closer to his birthday I prayed so hard that they wouldn’t be born on his birthday. I knew they were going to get a lot of attention, just because they were quintuplets, I didn’t want them to steal his birthday too. Thankfully I was able to stay pregnant 3 more days before they made their big debut.
When the quints first came home, Brady really didn’t know what to think about his new role as big brother. I can’t even imagine what it must have been like to become the older sibling to quintuplets. There were times, at the beginning, when he’d tell us to take them back to the hospital. Poor guy…he just wanted his normal quiet life back, but over time he’s grown to appreciate all his siblings. At the ages of 4 and 2 they now play so good together. He and Brant share a room and bed now, so that has really brought them together. It melts my heart to see him being such a amazing big brother to Mia, Tessa, Brant, Gracie, and Rayleigh. Of course they fight and he doesn’t like them touching his toys, but overall, they get along so well. The quints are so blessed to have Brady as their big brother.
Yesterday, Brady made sure the quints got a kiss before nap time. He is so loving.
