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.
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! Plus other thoughts”
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.
Luke is off and running to his first day of elementary school! I can vividly remember five years ago, when Luke was 6 months old, sitting on the couch talking with James about school and we laughed as we realized it’s FIVE years away. Well bam wham thank you ma’am, that went fast. Continue reading “Luke, first day of Kinder”
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.

Well I’ve been pretty quiet on here since entering newborn land, which included hospital land and now includes keep-four-kids-alive while James goes back to work land.. HA. We are staying afloat, eating food (although grocery shopping Continue reading “Catch up!”
We are in total and utter love with our newborn baby boy Jordan!! He came Friday, May 10 at 2:39am! 8 pounds, 4 ounces of pure love. Perfect way to celebrate Mother’s Day this year..
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!”
I have been finding myself so nostalgic and emotional watching and observing my “big kids” these last few weeks. “Big” in the sense that they feel big, but in reality they are Continue reading “My big kids”
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”
