2 days of warm-ish, beautiful sunshine made for a mama who couldn't help but pull out Ellery's spring dresses. 😍☀️🌷 #elleryjune #couldnthelpit #springdress #theprincessalwayswearsadress #livingwithaprincess

Alder Hawken, you are 9 months old (and a whole fistful of change...)!! I couldn't pick just one photo of you because you are so smiley that it's a real challenge to get a bad photo of you. Right at 9 months you had JUST broken your first bottom tooth through and your 2nd was on the tail end right behind it. At 9 months and some hefty change, those 2 teeth have surfaced and are mighty! You LOVE your long tongue and pretty much it's 'sun's out, tongue's out' in your world. You totally obeyed mama and didn't start crawling until after Christmas was over and the holiday stuff all put away. Good boy! 😜 You are now sorta crawling/mostly scooting but you are getting increasingly mobile every day. I'm a little bit mourning knowing that I could sit you down and 15 minutes later, you'd still be there. At this point, you move like a snail and you're not too far gone, but I know these days are fleeting. You have been dubbed "Old Faithful" in the church nursery and fittingly so! They knew they could set you down, give you some toys, and at the end of service you'd still be sitting right there, smiling and happily playing. Also fitting because your middle name means steadfast, and the word daddy saw over your life was faithful. We sure love you Alder Boy, and we cannot possibly stop loving you (or kissing your sweet cheeks). I will, however, try to stop Ellery from "hugging" (i.e. pulling over and smothering) you so much. 😬 #sorryboutthat #fourthchild #alderhawken

I'm putting on Friends and diving into the sock pile. Can I get a fist bump mamas? (Also, maybe send someone in the AM to check my pulse.) #sockpile

Alright alright alright. We finally got dressed and out of the hotel at noon. Opened our last clue and headed to the Japanese Garden and Pittock Mansion. #theamazingrace

It's a beautiful morning!! 😍 We were rudely woken up early after just a few hours of sleep (we MAY have stayed up gabbing like pre-teens until 4 am. 🤦🏼‍♀️). So they comped us some room service breakfast. We ain't mad. #theamazingrace #bestfriendjess

Clue #9: the NINES. Shut the front door. Skyler Pierce, you have pampered me far beyond what I would ever do for myself (and I know you know that - which is why you planned it exactly this way!). Thank you for taking care of me and making me a priority when I don't. You have filled my cup in huge ways today. 💕 You have made two mamas OVERJOYED with a night away. And SO FANCY. 😍 #theamazingrace #thenines #bestfriendjess

Clue #8: We made it to our reservation at Portland City Grill! 🤗 We ordered a few plates to share and it was all AMAZING. The views were incredible, especially with the nightscape of the city. Good views, great food, and even better company. #theamazingrace #bestfriendjess

Clue #3: FREE and ALONE time!! And, oh how my husband knows me!! My stomach was growling as I was finishing up the facial. Headed to French Press for a crepe and coffee and spent the rest of my time at @urbanblock_ and Value Village. #theamazingrace

Clue #2: First time I've ever had a facial or hot stone massage! So many thoughts about this adventure!! 😆😍 @and.skyler You're the best and I'll keep you forever! I wouldn't change much about you (can't say anything. Because I'd change your chewing sunflower seeds on road trips habit if I could. 💁🏼)! #theamazingrace

We celebrated our sweet 5 year old a day early (though today is his birthday) because I was told that my Christmas present was arrive today. Arrive it did! #hohoho #notsanta #theamazingracethemesong

A couple of awesome Salem Police officers made a special stop over here for Asher's birthday! Gave all the kids a chance to turn on the lights and sirens. My painfully shy birthday boy observed from a bit of a distance but then the thought struck him to run and grab his pair of handcuffs to show off. HUGE thank you to the SPD for making my sweet birthday boy's day so special! 🚓🚨🚔👨🏻‍✈️👩🏻‍✈️#salempolice #ashermilo #asherturns5

A Salem Police birthday for my big guy! If you've seen our Christmas letter, you know that's what this guy aspires to be. He is nurturing, seeks justice, is incredibly fearless and has one of the biggest hearts for humanity that I have ever known. Handcuffs, whistles, police badges, coffee and donuts. I think we got it covered. 💪🏻 Also, I thought whistles were a great idea. The kids were playing cops and robbers, running around chasing each other with hand cuffs and blowing whistles. I'm afraid Ellery makes a poor cop, as she easily was distracted by her wonderful music making. 🤷🏼‍♀️ #asherturns5 #ashermilo #salempolice

I, also, rang in the new year with streamers and balloons! However - all 5 of my most cherished folk were deep in sleep (well, all except Alder who was woken by the numerous fireworks, but hey - I was glad to have a boy to kiss at midnight. 💁🏼) and the balloons and streamers weren't for New Years but were set up in anticipation of my middle boy's birthday. 🎉🎈🎁 #asherturns5 #wheredmybabygo #ashermilo
