"Look mommy!! I caught a lizard!" I thought I gave birth to 2 GIRL children. Who is this child?! Note I'm the smart one on THIS side of the screen.

I joke with my friends that I'll have to catch up on everyone's lives in 2 years. Sounds dramatic, but it's not far from reality. Making time for all 4 of my children and my husband (who really gets the short end of the stick) takes more than all my energy these days. When we do have a few minutes with friends we soak it up. Check out how much our boys have grown and changed since they were last together in October! Just missing our friend Josiah. @thekellyeight thanks for playing today.

Yesterday was a big day for the boys. 7 months old and their first flight! Benji wanted to fly the plane with 1 hand on the yoke and both boys conked out after a few minutes airborne. Not sure daddy could have had a prouder grin taking his boys to the skies for the first time!! Thanks 'Uncle Tony', we see lots more air time in their future. 💙💙✈️#lifeandadventuresofzandb #7monthsold #airbornebabies

A year ago today @thevintagepoppy helped us share the explosive news two baby BOYS were entering our family. The chalk explosion even split in 2! The girls' initial reaction was ridiculous and and anticlimactic, but their excitement and love for their little brothers grows more every day. Watching the relationship between our children grow and change is one of the greatest gifts 💗💗💙💙 #andsothereweresix

Is it just me or do my big girls look particularly grown up these days?! 💗💗

The house is a mess, laundry is piled up everywhere, but today is starting out like this and I'm embracing it. Mess and piles and laundry will be there later, these baby snuggles won't last. 💙💙 #lifeandadventuresofzandb

This boy. A blanket full of toys and all he wants to play with are his feet always. 😍

Finally taking down Christmas from every room in the house and sharing lots of tips and inexpensive decor on my insta-stories. .
Here's a bonus tip: I LOVE Christmas but don't have an unlimited budget (I mean who does?!) so last year when we decided to move to a more rustic look…with glitter of course…I knew I couldn't buy an entire house worth of new ornaments so I made some out of other supplies. A pack of 12 of these glittered antlers were $9.99 and sold as bowl filler at @michaelsstores. I got them 50% off, used twine and hot glue I already had and made 12 new inexpensive ornaments to mix in. #christmasdecoronabudget #shopforchristmasyearround

That is my first born, my 11 year old, Madison, changing her baby brother's diaper early this morning I was nursing Benjamin when she woke up and heard Zachary giggling in his crib. She came right in and started changing him before she got down on the floor to play with him.
It feels like just a few weeks ago SHE was a 6 month old giggly baby. Time sure is a funny thing. 💗💙

Oh Zachary you are supposed to be sleeping right now, but I'll take this over that screaming nonsense any day.

When the governor of Georgia declares today UGA Football Friday, you wear red and black even in California. Also, can we talk about how fabulous Madison's red pants are?! #godawgs #ugafootballfriday

A year ago today…my favorite math equation. From the news of a surprise pregnancy after 2 miscarriages and 6 years of believing our family was done growing, to the doctors finding THREE babies early on, and finally learning 2. TWO healthy babies were growing inside. What a whirlwind this past year has been. God gives the best gifts when we least expect them 💙💙#andsothereweresix #lifeandadventuresofzandb

Since we started solid foods the boys are waking every couple hours at night again and generally NOT at the same time. This morning our Zachary had his first crazy blow out that resulted in a full body cleaning…also, why are babies always in white onesies when this happens?! It's times like this when I'm so thankful for a supportive husband and partner who takes the big girls to school so I can focus on the babies. The nights seem long, but the baby days are rushing by. It takes a team to raise a family…this team is staying focused on Jesus for direction and strength this year…and maybe sticking to boob juice only for a little while longer. #andsothereweresix #lifeandadventuresofzandb

"Hey, hey Zachary" "What's up, Benjamin"
"Dude, you got something on your face"
"Yeah, you too, bro"
So we started solid foods and these boys are naturals. Such messy eaters, but man they can't get enough fruits and veggies. Sweet potatoes are the favorites so far. I see a growth spurt in our immediate future! #lifeandadventuresofzandb

I could edit out the tired eyes and uneven skin tone, but real life is so much better. Christmas morning my bed was so full (minus a sick daddy who tried to keep his strep germs and snores in the other room), but nowhere near as full as my heart. As so many of you have reminded me, life looks different now…and that's ok. It's different and better than I ever imagined. New year, new mindset, new insta-name. It was time. #andsothereweresix #stilllivingafairlyfabulouslife

They each have their own entire crib yet when they are playing instead of napping this is how I find them. As close as possible. Lord help me when they are toddlers climbing to get to each other.

Christmas break looked a lot different this year. I pretended I was ok with it and was learning to accept it, but the truth is I've been pouting like a big baby. The last man standing, Madison, finally came down sick. Instead of enjoying the down time as or new family of 6, I've been stir crazy and mourning all the projects we usually get finished in our time off, the time with our friends, Christmas crafts. In these last 5 days of break we are hunkering down, enjoying our family, the Christmas decor, all the Hallmark holiday movies we DVR'd and pretending Christmas isn't over yet. I'm praying for an attitude adjustment. We really do have so much to celebrate. #itsstillchristmashere
