A happy Uncle Brent is spending the morning hanging out with our sweet godson, Auggie. He said to me “Driving home with a baby in the back of our car felt so good.” 😍 #wegettodothisagain

I see all you crafty, creative mamas with your beautifully, handmade advent calendars. I bought my kids the cheap milk chocolate ones at the grocery store like my mama used to buy me! 😂 #feelfreetopin (but seriously, nice work 👌🏻)

Dear scientists of the world, I would like to submit these two darling children of mine to whatever research study you are running that can help explain why I have to drag them out of bed, grumpy, at 7am on school days but they somehow manage to wake up on their own, smiling and ready to start the day at 6am on weekends. What is this madness?

We’ve almost finished the nursery and every night, Brent goes in and turns this puppy lamp on until morning. It makes me happy every time I walk by- a little lighthouse of anticipation for our girl. A vigil before we meet. #7weekstogo

We have dozens of photos in this spot outside our favorite Mexican restaurant over the years. It’s like a virtual measuring stick for these ever growing babes.

The Jordan cousin tribe (in age order). 7 little first cousins all within 4.5 years of each other. Equal parts chaos and magic! #happythanksgiving

These beautiful women made me feel so loved yesterday as we celebrated baby girl Jordan. There are not enough words to describe what they mean to me. ❤️ (And a special thank you to @natashatashtashie, @meganreannajohnson and @krissy_g who hosted the most beautiful shower ever!)

Some people pass down important family knowledge like mastering a special recipe or building something with their bare hands. I prioritized teaching Everly the ancient art of full body car jamming sessions. Well done, young grasshopper. #appledoesntfallfar #stoplightdanceroutines

Had @analogjakob snap a quick maternity pic during our annual family photo shoot to memorialize this last, long awaited addition to our family.

You are looking at the new mayor of second grade! Everly wrote and delivered her own speech in front of her second grade peers about why she would make a good leader and the things she felt she could do to make their grade better. Tonight the second grade teachers sent out an email with the vote count and Everly was chosen as mayor! Brent and I both participated in student government in our school years so we are both trying to claim credit 😂 But seriously- this was all her and I’m just tickled for my girl. 💪🏻

My mama has kept me motivated to be her walking buddy in the early mornings. We get in a brisk 2.5 miles before I start work for the day and it has given me so much energy in this last trimester (and is helping me sleep better at night). We chat about life and family and brainstorm ideas on everything from home projects to business ideas. I’m loving this time with her and hope I can keep it up all the way to my due date.

I saved so much stuff from when Everly and Arlo were babies because I always knew we weren’t done. For years it sat in our basement, like an anchor for my sadness, collecting dust. When Tash got pregnant with August, I could hear God whispering “give it away” and for months I battled with the thought as it felt like releasing it all meant giving up. But as the months passed, I realized it wasn’t giving up, but rather, letting go. Having faith meant releasing the white knuckle grip I held on the physical remnants of a baby in my house and it was one of the healthiest things I could have done for my mental health. Along the way, I filled many of those dark, sad places with new memories with my Godson. I held his sweet body in little pants Arlo wore, and watched him eat some of his first bites of solid food in the same high chair my two did. As my own pregnancy progressed with this little girl and August has grown into toddlerhood, Natasha started whispering to me “When you’re ready, I have it all here waiting for you.” It took me hitting the 20 week mark before I felt brave enough to accept. And when I did, she sent more than I could possibly need. So many new items in addition to those old ones. I put this little bassinet in our bedroom this week and have tethered myself to a fresh anchor, this one bursting with hope and anticipation.

Brent snapped this gorgeous photo of the girls, at dawn, after a night of tent camping through a torrential rain storm. Couple of tough little gals if you ask me! (I’m not sure I would have lasted all night) #yguides
