Baptism

Last weekend we got to baptize our babes ♥ It was an incredibly special moment and one we’d contemplated, prayed about and researched for a few years now. When Luke was born, we had dedicated him and when Kate came along, we did the same thing. Both dedications were beautiful moments! And as time has went on, around the time that Emma came along, our understandings shifted from our own personal bible study and exposure to other practices from the historical church.

Emma is/has been 2! Plus other thoughts

I’m so behind. So so behind. I am troubled by my behind-ness (a questionable adjective). I am two months late for this birthday post. So late, in fact, that I’m now a day late to my own birthday post (the horror). But here I am, you guys. I can’t stop, won’t quit now. Birthday posts are terrifyingly par for the course around here, and of course, by that I mean that it’s pretty much ALL I’ve conceivably been able to eek out Continue reading “Emma is/has been 2!

Jordan, months 4 and 5

Jordan is five months tomorrow! So as one does, I shall post his four and five month update. Nights have been late recently so Jordan is kicking my booty sleep wise but lucky for him, I am so smitten with his stage right now. He is so smiley and coos so much, and loves chattering to himself. He is also starting to play with toys and his toes too and it’s so sweet to see him roll around grabbing on his little feet.

Jordan, months 1, 2 and 3

So behind but determined to keep this up! These are some photos from the last twelve weeks.. life threw us a curveball in June and landed us in the hospital for Jordan’s one month mark (and Father’s Day too!). Originally we had taken him in as a tag-a-long to Luke’s check up at our doctors office, and I’d felt like he’d been warm that morning, even though we weren’t registering a temperature underarm. But once there, they registered a high fever and sent us straight to the E.R.

40 weeks + 1 day!

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Well! Yesterday was my due date. And just writing that out probably needs to be more okay with me, so here I am—40 weeks, 1 day, with my now historically late boy pregnancies! 😉 Going past my due date feels like some sort of mental barrier for me to conquer. When I remember that I had ten days of this with Luke, I am speechless.. how we survived, I have no idea! Well anyhow, I am experiencing a lot of contracting Continue reading “40 weeks + 1 day!”

Mother’s Day Gift Guide


Mother’s Day (hint: May 12!) is around the corner and I thought I’d throw together some sweet finds I’ve seen around. I’ve been on Amazon quite a bit, ordering little odds and ends for baby brother, and I’ve seen a few of these items pop-up. I love finding more handmade items there, as well as fresh options and personalized jewelry, so many fun things to discover. Continue reading “Mother’s Day Gift Guide”
