rachfrakes The one perk of being high risk is all the extra peeks at our babe. It's fun to watch this sweet profile grow & Luke swears his baby waves to him every time. #25weeks 18h
  •   shannoncamille_ I'm high risk too, & that really is the best perk ! Weekly visits to see the little babe doing well in there ! Much love to you & your little one 18h
  •   littlealivia Is it weird that I think the ultrasound-baby already looks like Luke and Elsie? Haha 18h
  •   alexisks So adorable! You're doing so great!!! 18h
  •   jamihirst You're so beautiful! 17h
  •   rachfrakes @littlealivia haha we do too! It looks a lot like Luke, and I think the three of them all have the same nose! 16h
  •   lex_ains Cutest little bump!! Hope everything continues to go okay! 16h

rachfrakes I found about four dozen of these on my phone, mostly blurry (& a few great close ups of my bum, belly & nostrils), courtesy of Luke. I've been on this couch for six months and it's getting real old, but that's #reallife One day I'll be able to walk (right?!), but I'll probably still be right here on this couch, snuggling our new babe. #24weeks 1w
  •   littleeweandme Ugh, sorry!! Are you on bed rest? Or just horribly sick? Either way, no fun. 1w

  •   brittanymaem oh mama I feel badly for you, I don't know how you do it! 1w
  •   rachfrakes @littleeweandme yes, I'm supposed to walk as little as possible, which is okay since walking is really painful. My hips are broken. 1w
  •   jtprice You poor thing! I really hope your Ward is helping you out! That is a REALLY long pregnancy when you're in so much pain! 1w
  •   innakali Sending you all the warmest wishes and air hugs! Hope you get some relief soon 1w

rachfrakes You know your kids are probably watching too much peppa pig when they refer to their swim suits as "swimming costumes" and our front room as "the sitting room". 🙄 2w

  •   corina_sorensen Will you come teach me how to keep my house clean? I've looked at and downloaded your cleaning schedule but I'm still struggling... 3w
  •   rachfrakes @corina_sorensen I'd love to chat cleaning with you because I'm a nerd and I love it and I'm probably ocd, ha. But please know right now my house is NOT spotless because I am stuck on my couch. I haven't mopped like, this entire pregnancy, vacuuming happens almost never and this is just one tiny clean corner 3w
  •   meredithtutt I loved her frustrated artist snap 3w

rachfrakes I can almost hear my grandmother's thick German accent coming out of my girl's mouth when Elsie demands "sit sit sit! I cook. You eat!" It's like, flashbacks to my childhood. #morningswithelsie 3w
  •   megancamille That little kitchen is so cute!!! Where is it from? 3w
  •   littlegunnellfamily That setup is so cute! I don't even have granite counter tops!!! Are they fake? 3w
  •   rachfrakes @megancamille my in laws built it! @lilgunnellfam mine either it's a roll of marble laminate from Amazon made for covering kitchen counters. 3w
  •   littlegunnellfamily Oh phew! I didn't want to have toddler envy She is just darling. My kids have the IKEA kitchen and lots of those same pots and pans haha. My two year old loves it! 3w
  •   rachfrakes @lilgunnellfam Haha! Yeah that thing already weighs a ton, I can't imagine if it had real stone! the backsplash is real though, which is fun! She's so fancy. 3w

rachfrakes This boy. Luke wanted to show me a "special secret surprise" he'd built upstairs. I told him I was so sorry but my legs couldn't walk right now & I couldn't go upstairs with him. He Charlie Brown slumped away but came back a minute later and cuddled my belly and said, "weeellll, I have an idea. I could just ask Jesus and He could fix your legs better. I think He could! I'll just ask Him for you." life feels really tough these days but I needed the reminder that these kiddies are so worth it #22weeks #lukechats 3w
  •   jtprice That's just adorable! 3w
  •   jordcook I don't have pregnancy as tough as you do, but I'm still telling myself that they're worth it. 40 weeks is such a looooonng time. Especially in the middle of winter! It's worth it.... Or something like that 3w
  •   alexisks Pregnancy is so hard but you're s great mom with great kids! Power on, sister! 3w
  •   kristiniorg How far along are you?? I remember this going on when you were in GA! What will you do this go around? 3w
  •   mmortdavis You are doing great things. And your belly is so cute 3w
  •   bethanyjackman So sweet! Been thinking of you. 3w
  •   rachfrakes @kristiniorg 22 weeks. Trying massage therapy + acupuncture instead of physical therapy this time, but likely I'll just need surgery post baby. 3w

rachfrakes This big lady has kicked her diapers to the curb. "Dat's baby, mama. I big girl". Potty training Luke gave me grey hairs , but in true Elsie fashion, it's been a breeze this time. just one accident all week, knock on wood! 🏼 // so psyched to cancel my Amazon diaper delivery for a few months! 4w
  •   lindsmac88 She is getting too big! 4w
  •   alexisks You go girl! Potty training pregnant was probably the hardest thing I've ever done 4w
  •   jtprice Talya practically potty trained herself. Caden's only 15 months and I'm already dreading it. When did you train luke? 4w
  •   rachfrakes @jtprice he was three. He might have been ready a little earlier but we were living at my in laws while we waited to close on our house and I didn't want to train in someone else's home! He was pee trained in pull ups when he was still two, but I didn't go full throttle with underwear until 3. It took him 6 weeks to stop pooping in his underwear...ill never do pull ups again haha! I'd wait till you feel sure Caden is ready! Good luck! 4w
  •   rachfrakes @jtprice he was also dry at night by the time we started which was super great. 4w
  •   clairejharper Cool! Yeah, closer to 3 sounds like a much better idea for potty training...for next time! 4w
  •   richellelindstrom Yay! Way to go Elsie!! 4w
  •   preethib7 It amazes me how different it can be for each kid. Nat was almost 2.5 and it took at least a month for me to feel totally secure. Kina trained a couple days after her 2nd bday (she was asking a few months before that but We were about to go out of the country and I was NOT about to travel with a newly potty trained toddler) and had like 2 accidents. She also NEVER wet her diaper or the bed after the first day of potty training. I'm sooo not looking forward to doing that again. Hooray for Elsie! 4w

rachfrakes Sometimes Luke wakes Elsie up from her nap way too early...but I can't even be mad when I hear their little voices and walk in to find this. 1mon

rachfrakes We did a lot in 2015. We saw mt Rushmore, ancient giant turtles, the Oregon coast, Utah valley, and San Diego. Luke taught himself to ride a two wheeler in .2 seconds and spent the summer studying human anatomy (digestive, respiratory and circulatory systems) and is now absorbed in learning "creature facts". Elsie moved to a toddler bed, stopped crying in nursery and developed some personal passions (coloring, cooking, and baby dolls). She is much less timid this year and is slowly turning into a little spitfire. (I blame her brother). //and this caps off my goal for a family picture each month ( #we4frakes ), which I'd love to continue in 2016...but let's be honest- my only real goal is to survive this pregnancy. //🏼️peace out 2015. 1mon
