Everly Alice, I'm writing to you on a plane for your 10 month birthday. These last three months have been full of trips and late nights working after you're in bed. I left you at 230 this morning and won't get to put you to bed for another week. Working is hard. Leaving you is... Continue Reading →



This felt like the first weekend home in awhile and it did not disappoint. Spent some sweet time playing in bed, breakfast, and getting into everything. Little girl woke up in a sweet, giggly mood, a rarity because she is NOT a morning person. In contrast to the peace of our morning, another school shooting... Continue Reading →


Tiny bear, After you were born, the doctor told me my scar might take up to 9 months to heal. Then at your 6 month check up, they said you might be walking at 9 months. Both times, 9 months felt distant. But here we are. You're changing so fast. You pull yourself up like... Continue Reading →


Tiny bear, Your mom's job is weird. This week and most weeks, it means that mommy misses bed time at least twice a week. This week is different though - we're going to camp which brought extra late nights and this afternoon, we're leaving you with Grandmomma and Pappy until Sunday afternoon. I've been missing...

I told Everly this morning that 2018 is the year that she will walk, say her first words, and grow some teeth (I hope). By this time next year,... Continue Reading →

We bought a house! 3 months in the basement 2 cats 1 pod stuffed with house 2 generous in-laws every bowl in the house (just ask... Continue Reading →


Every year, December blows by faster and faster. I have an ornament from childhood that counts down into Christmas and I remember checking it multiple times during the day, agonizing about the days not passing quickly enough.  This year, I have to move the countdown clock several days at a time because I have forgotten...

Little Bear, You are both very small and very strong. At your 6 month doctor appointment, the doctor couldn't stop exclaiming about how much you move already. We took you on a carousel and while your cousins took seats in the carts, we went for it and put you on one of the moving horses.... Continue Reading →
