The first weekend in May was another special weekend for our family.
Because the first part of the year isn't busy enough with all 5 of us celebrating birthdays, the dog's birthday, Valentine's Day, Easter, and our anniversary, all right after the holidays...
We gathered with our family and friends to baptize Emily into the Catholic faith. We did it at my parents church, the
After another late night of moving my 4 year old and my 2 year old back to their bed. I’m tired. With three kids... sleep can either be really great or absolutely terrible. And by that I mean they like to alternate who is awake, all night long. As I crawl into my bed for a few hours of cuddling up next to my husband, kid free... I try and remind myself that someday I will miss this. Someday
Y'all, it has already been a month (and a few days) since we welcomed Emily into the world. While I don't feel like it necessarily flew by, it is definitely going much quicker than I want it to. I find myself soaking up the newborn cuddles and watching her discover the world more than I ever did with her sisters. This is the last time we will experience this... and I want to remember all of
It is FINALLY feeling like spring around these parts. Like most of the country, Kansas was majorly fighting with mother nature to achieve a normal Spring. But this week we have beautiful, sunny temperatures and it could not be more welcome.
April thus far has been full of adjustments, holidays, Emily meeting tons of new people and very little sleep.
We kicked off the month with Easter.
Emily has been with us for three weeks now. There is absolutely no routine to our life. Although I am working HARD to establish a new one. We all thrive off of routine around these parts. Something else that has become routine around these parts? Answering all the questions.
How are the big girls liking their new little sister?
They LOVE her. I call them hovercrafts because if Emily is
The day after we welcomed Emily into the world... we celebrated Brooklyn. Our girls will forever share March as a birth month and were just under 11 hours away from sharing the exact same day.
This year we celebrated Brooke's 2nd birthday in a room on the third floor of the hospital. My parents saved the day with cake and a balloon and both my sister and parents brought presents for
Almost a week ago we welcomed the final addition to our family (and it has been a whirlwind ever since).
Emily Pauline was born Tuesday, March 27th (the day before her big sister's 2nd birthday) at 1:16 pm. Weighing in at 6 pounds, 9 ounces and 19 inches long. Fair skinned and a smattering of light brown hair. Sleepy and sweet as can be.
We were not expecting this little lady to come

Every year on St. Patrick's Day Rob and I celebrate another special day... our anniversary. This weekend it was 8 years of being married.
(Quick side note.. March 17th was NOT our intended wedding date. March 15th was. 2 years and 7 months to the day after we had met in a college algebra classroom in a Kansas high school. Maryland has a 48 hour rule though... and after our 48 hour wait, it
It took us having three kids, but we finally got to experience the joy of a baby shower thrown in our honor.
This last weekend my Mom and my sister threw us and baby #3 a diaper shower get together to celebrate this last little girl. It was a blast and absolutely worth the wait.
