Hi, and welcome! Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy your stay. 🙂
I am pleased to introduce you to my family:
This is me:
I am a mother of two boys and two girls (girl number two due May 31) and a wife to my wonderful husband. God has entrusted me with these precious people, and I am constantly learning how best to live out this vocation I have been called to. A couple years ago some life changes led me to transition from a mom who worked full time in an office to becoming a work at home mom. Whereas that has been a huge adjustment for our family, I feel blessed to have the opportunity to be with my kids during the day. Taking care of little people, a house, and a job can feel pretty crazy at times, but I sneak off to this little corner of the world when I can to share a little bit from our adventures.
This is my husband:
This is my oldest child:
Parker is my first born, so everything with him is a new experience for me, and he has thus had to put up with the first time mom version of me. He is 6 years old and is about to finish kindergarten. He is very active and loves to be outdoors. Parker enjoys inventing things and is constantly repurposing items that I try to put in the recyclables. I am always amazed at the big concepts he can understand, and he is already an excellent communicator. The best part about Parker though is his loving spirit… he can be so sweet and thoughtful when he is in the right mood.
Austin is newly 4 years old and very excited about that. He loves blue, submarines, propellers and motors. He’s become quite the talker and tells me stories about his college and his wolf friend. He and Parker can drive each other crazy, of course, but they adore each other and are usually found creating their own worlds, projects, or adventures together. Austin also enjoys his role as the big brother to his sisters as well. Making his sister, Audrey laugh brings him great joy, and he talks to his new sister in my belly. Austin enjoys artistic projects and using rubber bands, tape, or string to hook things together to create his favorite toy of the moment. We very much enjoy how fun and loving he is!
This is my first girl:
Audrey is 1 year old (2 in July) and has been such a fun addition to our family! She loves playing with her brothers, which means my sweet baby girl is sometimes covered in dirt and has scrapes on her knees. I am amazed though at how bold and fearless she can be. Even though she can keep up with the boys, she is still a girl and brings a much needed feminine balance to our over abundance of male energy. Audrey usually has a happy, silly spirit that makes it hard not to smile.
This is my newest girl:
We can’t wait to meet this sweet little girl due to arrive May 31!
And we can’t forget our dog:
Cider is an 8 year old cockapoo and has to be one of the neediest, squeakiest, most excitable dogs you ever could meet. When people she likes come over she goes crazy: running, jumping, squeaking! When she was little we thought it was cute, but what we didn’t realize was that it would get worse over time, and frankly it’s a bit out of control now. That being said, she’s a lover. She’s been sweet with our kids from day one and loves to cuddle and give lots of kisses. Dogs are also awesome when you have kids who drop food on the floor (which of course never happens here, but if it did…).
Note: that is Parker (quite a few years back) that is running with Cider
