Dino's and dolls -- they go together like peanut butter and Nutella.
I remember driving three years ago on the way to get our tattoo and we called our dad to “ask permission”. He did not approve of it and we informed him we weren’t technically “asking” but simply “preparing”. Growing up we had one giant rule — no tattoos. Fast forward a year later to the last six months of my dad’s life. He was sick — we all knew how sick. He always talked to us about being scared and sad that he would not be in our lives forever. We wanted something to show him that he in fact would always be in our lives, monthly, daily, every minute of everyday. We wanted him to write a tattoo for us, we weren’t sure on how we would sell him the idea, but in fact it didn’t take long to do. He sat down to write it for us — he was frustrated at how shaky his hand was that he continued to write it ten times to try to perfect it. We all just kind of sat there watching him — sad that we all knew where this story was headed and quite frankly shocked he was writing this for us. Fast forward two more years to this past weekend — we were able to walk into a tattoo parlor together with his words in hand. We all added our own word to the end to describe how we carry him with us. It was such a perfect day sitting and perfecting this and watching each other go through it. About an hour after our tattoos we walked outside to the most beautiful rainbow that faded shortly after we saw it. We just stared and watched it — say what you will but he was there and he was proud of us and the proof was in the sky right above our heads. We watched that rainbow dissapear with tears in our eyes and ended the day with margaritas to celebrate him and remind him that in fact we will always carry him with us.
I am because you are my story.
I am because you are my strength.
I am because you are my journey.
I am because you are my existence.
I am because you are my haven.

One of those super simple mornings where you feel so overwhelming blessed to be exactly right where you are in this moment of life. 💗

Let's start by saying she knows darn well she is to stay away from the stairs. I was in the other room and I hear "uh. Oh. I stuck. I stuck" 🙈😂 I asked her how she got up there and she put her hands in the air to show me 'I don't know'. I think I have a pretty good idea little miss.

My sweet little boy... I don't even know where to start with you. You are my heart. My first baby, the one who made me a mom. You have been patient with me and bless me daily with your sweet comments. Six years ago I held you in my arms for the first time and my whole world felt complete. The time has gone way too fast like it always does, but I couldn't be more proud of who you are. I love your quirks, your smile, your imagination, your sweet hugs, your everything. As I tightly hugged you last night and refused to let you go -- you reminded me that, "mom I will be just as sweet when I'm 6". You will never quite understand the depths of how much you have brought to my life. Happy birthday little dude-- I hope the year ahead is simply perfect for you. 🎈

It's not everyday you get to wake up, drink your coffee, and watch someone ride a unicorn. ☕️🦄

Well I have denied it long enough. Today was the official start of a new chapter in this little dude's world. He had such a great day and ended his night with, "I can't wait to go back". Cant believe we are at this stage, but beyond thrilled he had a great day. I am not going to lie it was also pretty awesome seeing him all day long at work. Kara Meyer thanks for making his day wonderful. 💗

I sat and cried tonight as I rocked you one last time as my tiny baby. You are officially one In about three hours. A year ago today, I was walking the halls of the hospital trying my hardest to get you to move down, I still believe you might still be in my belly if I let you stay. A year ago today I kissed your brother one last time before our lives would be changed forever. I was so scared about what the path ahead would look like. Now here I sit rocking you and reflecting on the magic of the last year with you. I never could have comprehended that you would complete our family more than we ever knew we needed. The last year has been amazing and I thank god daily for all the blessings he has bestowed upon us. Your smile, your hugs, your peekaboo's, your beautiful eyes, your giggle, your snuggles.... your you is perfection. Love you so much sweet girl. Thank you for making me a mom, again.

Can not believe that this little miss is going to be an entire year old tomorrow. I have no clue where the time has gone. 😭 I swear they just laid her on my chest yesterday.

When you wake up the morning after your party and realize the balloons you couldn't reach the day before are all at your level today. 🎈🙌🏼 #evieisone

Sweet sweet boy of mine. I hope you know how truly amazing and special you are. Can't believe in a few short weeks you will be headed to kindergarten, I feel like you were just laid on my chest and I met you for the very first time. Can't seem to shake this sad feeling that his "little boyhood" is gone and on to the next chapter in life. Time is a cruel and beautiful thing. #slowdown

Had a fun day at the Indy Zoo with grandma today. The new Macaw exhibit is very cool. If you could hear this photo you would hear my almost one year old yelling at the Macaws -- "GEESE, GEESE" over and over again. 🙈🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️😂
Five sisters-- three of us were pregnant at the same time. These are two of the bump buddies. Never easy to say goodbye to family but so very thankful for the uninterrupted time I get to spend with them when they come and visit us. Such a fun week, why does it always go so fast!? #cousinswithalovehaterelationship #eviestopbashingportersheadwiththattoy #evieissuffocatingporteragain #eviegetawayfromporter @amylaarhus

I take the picture each month but am horrible at posting them. However we are less than one month away from celebrating one beautiful year of life with you so month eleven deserves a post. You are so fun little girl. You are clapping and yelling "yay" when you do. You mimic everything we say like a little parrot. When we yell "so big" you throw your hands in the air (like you just don't care), each and every time. You dance like no one is watching every chance you get. You are a junk food junkie -- nothing like your big brother. You love snuggling us and giving us loves. You are as sweet as can be but also wild and carefree. The chunky 9+ lbs newborn is long gone -- you are small and petite and everyone who sees you says, "she's so tiny". You are walking around furniture but haven't shown much interest in taking off on your own (which is fine by us). You have three little teeth and almost a fourth. I say it over and over but our world is a better place with you in it. 💕

I am so very thankful for the past year and watching the two of them form this bond. There are five years between them, but they are so so good to each other. He is so patient and understanding with her and she looks at him like he is the coolest person to walk this planet. I found them like this tonight and my mama heart melted. 💗
