ruthelke Enjoying every little bit of this 'cold' weather. Exploring outside with V and loving it because it's not extremely 🌡in fact we're cold . And yes this might be the first picture I'm posting of her being asleep because this week it's precious and I feel accomplished when she's asleep. Special moments. It's one of those phases. What would I do without baby wearing? #fl #winter #littleH #sollybaby 3w

ruthelke It's been one of those days that merely consisted of taking care of our sick little ones and trying to get better ourselves . The aftermath of traveling and jet lag? Maybe. It's also been a day to reflect on the past weeks and even months, where have we been as a family and how do we take the next steps. And knowing above anything that God is faithful! Let me tell you, yesterday we got a call from a good friend asking how we're doing, he heard that we were all not feeling well and in response showed up with an incredible dinner a few hours later. Little did we know then that V would have a fever of 103 all night and that H would be fussy all night and day and that we would really have our hands full. But HE knew and provided plenty of food so we wouldn't need to worry about cooking on top of that. We're still eating leftovers from last night and it's still so tasty. So good. We're so thankful. #hecares #stepbystep #friends #yeswehavebeenonthecouchallday #thankful #3months #sheisourprincess 3mon

ruthelke Wow! God is so faithful! A few days ago I had asked him what the birth would be like. The only thing I heard was 'gentle ' and I was very curious how a birth could be that. But it was just that - gentle and incredibly fast . Now we're just in awe and soaking her in. #thankful #godisfaithful #baby #fullofadrenalin #surprise #home #birth #isourcouchruined? 6mon
