ashleegadd Every time Carson wakes up, Everett runs into his room, opens the shutters, turns off the sound machine, and climbs into the crib with him. I'm sure someday they'll fight and wrestle, but for now, I'm really loving this sweet routine they've developed. (And yes, we let Everett choose his own socks ) #brothers 3d

ashleegadd "Things will not always be as they are right now - there will be new things, other things, good things. But I don't want to miss this, this right now, this sacred everyday. And I don't want to only see the surface. I want to see the depths - the work of God all around me, in conversation and prayer and silence and music. I want to connect with the God who made me from dust, on purpose and for a purpose. I want to walk through my days in a warm conversation through prayer, aware as I walk that he walks with me, that as I speak, he hears me, that as I rest, he carries me." // for the busy mommas with little time to read, I love this simple 365 devotional from my favorite author @sniequist 🏼 4d

  •   ashleegadd @brittanybeevee Ha! They were all a little different...I thought about adjusting them to be identical but I kinda like them like that. They have a couple kids so I think all the stools match a family member! 5d

ashleegadd Last summer I launched Coffee + Crumbs with one goal in mind: I wanted to create an online space where mommas could feel less alone. I wanted to make a place where we could write about fierce love and messy truths and the best kind of heartache. A place to be ourselves, a place to confess, a place to both let go and hold on. Nine months later, we are still a work in progress, but I believe we are doing just that. Tomorrow is the last day of our very first pledge drive. If you've enjoyed our content at any point over the past nine months, if you've read our words and thought "me too", would you consider making a small donation to help me pay our regular writers? Asking for money is awkward, but I believe art is valuable, and I believe the art we've created is worth something. Link in profile for more info. 1w

ashleegadd You’re six months old now, and only weigh 12 pounds. Maybe you’re up to 13? I could carry you all day long, it feels like carrying a pillow. Your tiny body fits on my hip, in the crook of my arm, against my chest, in my lap. No matter where I put you, you fit, like an enchanted puzzle piece. I spent my whole pregnancy worrying about how I was going to make room for you. Our life with one kid felt full and busy and consumed, and I wasn’t sure where or how you were going to fit into that space.

And I can’t explain how you fit now.

You just do.

ashleegadd His hand on my face. He's so happy when I give him attention, it breaks my heart. He only gets a fraction of the attention his brother got at this age, but I'm doing my best. Hope it's enough for you, sweet boy. 3w
  •   laurelizabethg I second a comment above! All he'll ever know is your love, and the sweet constancy of it 3w
  •   laurawifler I complete relate - exactly how I feel with Colette. It kills me that I can't give her as much attention as she deserves (I know, I know, it is, but ... The mom guilt still lingers.) The way she lights up when I do, it pretty much makes my world stop. 3w

  •   christyhunsberger Totally relate. 3w
  •   freshbib No guilt! They get a different love and the bliss of always having a best buddy sibling around. Different doesn't mean bad, just different. 3w
