Ack! I cannot believe it has already been one month. I want to freeze time and keep all my little ones just the way they are. The boys seemed to instantly grow up when Hadley arrived, I didn’t remember them being so big before we went into the hospital…. Since... Continue reading

It has been one week since we brought our little peanut home. We have gone through over 100 diapers already - I have been way out of practice I guess. This little lady has peed on me more times than both boys combined so far. Big brothers are completely in... Continue reading

I am going to attempt to play catch up on the old blog since I am so, SO far behind. March was crazytown for this family. We have been working to prepare for our little arrival and this was the last full month we had before she came. We started... Continue reading

I have been bitten with a serious craft bug. Maybe it is a part of my nesting, I don't know, but there are so many projects I want to do. The other day was raining and a little snowy so I thought it would be the perfect day to stay... Continue reading

32 weeks and counting down until we can meet our little Hadley and hold her in our arms. When the doctor appointments changed from monthly to every other week, you start to feel the arrival getting closer.....which may be the little nudge we need to get things together and ready... Continue reading

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching I went straight to pinterest for some ideas for the boys. I didn't want this holiday to be centered around a bunch of "stuff", being we just came off of Christmas, when I came across the idea of decoding words written onto hearts. And with...

So the moment I had been dreading arrived....potty training. There was no avoiding it, it had to get done. It has been nearly three weeks since we started and I can say it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The first day we worked on just putting... Continue reading

On January 18 at 2:05pm Landon turned seven - yes, SEVEN! Where has the time gone? Ryan and I keep saying to each other "I can't believe we have a seven year old", but I am guessing we will be saying that to each other a lot over the years... Continue reading

Last year we were given a set of skis and boots that fit Landon and we took him to the rope tow up at Mission Ridge. He loved it! This year he started talking about it again and we knew Jack wouldn't want to be left out of this activity.... Continue reading

2013 has arrived, and I am not one who typically makes resolutions, since I never, ever keep them. BUT this year I have a few goald in mind that were {and needed to be} achievable. My first goal is to potty train Jack - preferrably before Hadley arrives. Seriously, he... Continue reading

Yesterday was the big 20 week ultrasound appointment. I woke up at 5am in nervous anticipation, so in an attempt to distract myself from my thoughts of boy, girl, healthy baby I started the day. With the morning in full effect it was easy to be distracted. Landon woke up... Continue reading

Christmas is just around the corner and I am so excited this year. The house has been decorated for almost two weeks now, except for the tree which has some lighting issues that need to be worked out before the ornaments can go on. I am getting organized with some... Continue reading

After weeks of waiting and thinking was that it...or was that it? It finally happened! Last night I woke up to a funny feeling at 1:30am and it stayed consistent in movement. I knew what it was, what I have been waiting to feel for awhile, the first little flutter... Continue reading

We first learned about ITP {idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura} on May 17, 2011 and it took us on quite a rollercoaster ride of emotions. A few days leading up to May 17, we were noticing a few bruises on Jack. The day before he tripped and hit his lip on the... Continue reading

Thanks Mel! We are pretty excited, but will admit were super scared at first. You never know, cards have some funny hands sometimes....at least for us they did :) So excited for you and your new adventure. It is going to be a huge success, I can feel it.
