Happy heart day from our little heart warrior!
I’ve learned more about the physical heart in the last 4.5 months than in the rest of my 27 years. Although if you ask me to explain it all you’ll see I’m still learning how to articulate all I’ve learned! But the more amazing thing is how much I’ve learned about the figurative heart of those around me. Even with a “broken” heart, Thatcher has continued to teach us all about love. Through him we have witnessed the love of our family, holding us up when we couldn’t do it on our own, having a meal delivered to us at the hospital, keeping our dog for a month while we were away, sitting with us in the PICU while we muddled through our feelings, and taking care of Bear and making sure HE felt the love…Through him we have witnessed the love of our friends, sending cards, food, monetary help to defray the cost of meals, gas, and groceries, and stopping by to check in on us and give us a much needed distraction… Through him we have witnessed the love of strangers, and this is probably the most humbling lesson of all. Strangers, people we’ve never met, poured out their support. They offered us monetary support which was SO humbling and such a relief, but most of all, they offered us prayers. The community of believers that rose up around us is truly amazing and a true example of Christ-like love. I still get teary eyed when an acquaintance or stranger walks up to us and says “We’ve been praying for you.” That kind love is exactly what makes this world a better place and deserves to be celebrated today (and every other day)!
That eye contact 😍. These will Continue to be one of my favourite photos. Booking now send me a message for details!

Kids may not always listen but they are always watching and imitating. Be the person you want your kids to turn out as. Lead them with good examples and a fearless heart. 𝐓𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐡 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦 𝐢𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐰𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐢𝐭, 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝗪𝐎𝐑𝐊 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐢𝐭. We are not in control of who they become when they grow older but we certainly can influence their little eyes now.
I know that my son is watching me daily and I want to set the best example that I possibly can. I want him to know that it’s possible to enjoy yourself while still taking care of yourself. I want him to see me taking care of myself to better care for him.
He loves to workout with his mama and I will forever cherish these little moments!!
I will admit this morning when I didn’t get my 𝘔𝘌 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 and he woke up and was all needy I was a little stressed out because I assumed I wouldn’t be able to finish. Instead, after I took care of his morning “needs” he sat back and watched, patiently. He encouraged me and even decided to get up and do some of my workout and stretch with me!!

🌟Happy 9 Months to our sweet, Theo! 🎉You have been keeping me extra busy, running back and forth as you crawl and try to grab and stand on everything. I love how you made me your real life jungle gym 🤣and try to climb all over me. I’m not sure your twin brothers enjoy your climbing and crawling all over them.🤔It has been exciting watching you crawl, pulling up to stand and taking your first steps. I love your appetite and watching you eat anything and everything you see me eat! 😃Your voice is the sweetest, and hearing you say Mama, and now Da-da, is so heartwarming. You are setting such amazing examples for Alexander and Benjamin! #9monthsold#babyboy#cuddlesarethebest#littlebrother#boymom#littleblessing#curlyhair#goodcheckuptoday
I’ve been MIA from posting any decor, but for a very good reason! 💗🎀.
Hadalyn came into the world January 22nd, and has kept mommy & daddy on their toes ever since! 💗

Little rain baby Noah-Francis. Born in the wee hours of this morning.
I was privileged enough to witness my grandson entering this world, it was one of the most special experiences of my life. Hard to put it in to words.
My daughter-in-law was incredible, bub is perfect, love is in the air 💙💙💙

So excited to finally tell all of our friends & family!! We are expecting another little blessing to our family! Coming July 2020! 🤗🙏🏻❤️ As many of you know, life has been a bit of a circus for us lately! 🤪🎠🐒 Moving to a new home, new state, new school for the kids, new job for Monty, and just adjusting to all the changes.... so might as well keep the chaos alive and have another baby, right?! 😂👌🏻 I had the worst morning sickness the entire first trimester (which was so helpful during a move and the Holidays, Ha Ha! 😣🤦🏼♀️). But we are thankfully past all that, and I’m feeling better! We had our first ultrasound and got to see a glimpse of our sweet little one. 😭❤️ He/She is looking healthy and well so far! We are so incredibly grateful and excited.
I always knew in my heart that we would have one more baby. It’s something that we went back and forth with for quite a few years, and finally we were blessed with this little miracle that will complete our family!
Savannah and Colter are both so excited and so curious about the baby and what it looks like at each week, and how it’s developing, especially now as my baby bump is becoming more noticeable! It’s going to be such a neat experience for all of us. Savannah is team girl, and colter is team boy! But I know they will both be so happy with whatever it is, just like we will be!
Only a few more weeks until we find out!
Thank you soooo much @brookeandj for taking these special pictures of our family! I will treasure them forever! 🙏🏻💕💙 .
If I could give you just one thing .. ⚘
It would be the ability to see yourself through my eyes. 😍 To always know that you are worthy, valued, and blessed. To never doubt your way but to trust the journey. To know you are exactly where you are supposed to be. To see beyond the beauty and look for the heart. To hear not just the words that are spoken but also the whispers in the wind. To feel the sun on your face and know that is God's love shining upon you. 💛 Sweet Cadence, for when I look at you, I see the twinkle in your eye that makes my heart flutter, I see the dimple in your cheek that makes everybody smile, I see the gentleness in your touch that will warm people's hearts, I see the curiosity in your play that will make waves in the world, I see the confidence in your steps that will one day move mountains, I see these things and so much more, not just because I'm blessed to be your Mother, but because I see YOU!! 💕 When you find yourself lost, which you will, know that I will be here to help you find your way again. When your heart is broken, which it will be, know that I will help you pick up the pieces and put it back together again. Baby girl, you won't always need me, but I pray that I'm always your first call when you do. 😘😘 #momtruth#motherdaughter#blessedandgrateful#loveyourmother#honestmotherhood#teammotherly
I took a break from social media in January, and honestly, I’m struggling to get back into it. I was scared I would “lose followers” or the momentum that I had going on here.. messing up the algorithm, etc.
But you know what? All that stuff truly doesn’t matter. I bet many of you didn’t even notice I was “gone”. My friend @amandascookiesandcakes posted she was taking a break, and it gave me the courage to do the same. A bit of a detox/diet was much needed, and the result was fabulous. During January I read a book for fun (which I never do!), worked on some house projects, listened to many podcasts, spent more time in the Bible, cleaned (!), and found myself spending less time “laying around on my phone”. I still had some sessions, and I, shockingly, edited them much faster without all the distractions on my phone. ☺️ I’d encourage you all to spend some time re-assessing your social media intake, time, mindset, or desire. It’s been great to reflect on how it effects my mental health, our family, and my time. (Did you know you can set time limits for social media on your phone?) And now, I’ll be posting pictures from my sessions last month. Let me introduce to you Miss Quinn. She was so much fun to cuddle and capture last week.
Hello 8 months ! Yes baby girl, it's true ... you are 8 months old today !

Let's talk SLEEP (that mythical thing 😂) Is there such a thing as a 17 month sleep regression?! Every night this last week I've been up for a minimum of 2 hours trying to resettle a little miss who wakes up and just doesn't want to go back to sleep 😴😴.
Tell me, has your bub regressed in sleep? Are you in the same place as me? Tips, tricks? Share them below 👇. 📷 @snugglehunnykids

She is growing right before my eyes and it’s amazing but bittersweet. When I look at her I still see my cheeky little baby but there are times when I look at her and can’t believe how she no longer looks like a baby, but a little girl. She’s so independent and loves to be able to do things all by herself and is constantly talking about all the things she’s going to do when she’s big. But slow down little girl because you’re only this little for a blink of an eye 😭✨💗
I’ve been looking back at old memories a lot lately and I’m really learning to live more in the moment. This is Cameron’s very first Halloween. He was 6 months in this photo. These babies grow so fast so remember to cherish every moment ❤️.

We took our very first trip to the pumpkin patch a few weeks ago and loved it. Cameron had so much fun exploring the farm and seeing all of the animals. The chickens were his favorite 🐓! We will definitely have to make this an annual fall tradition. 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐝𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐟𝐚𝐥𝐥?🍁🍂

Happy Thursday! We’re almost to the weekend which I’m super excited about since my birthday is Saturday 1/18 🎉😎!
But as for today we are spending most of the day inside besides a trip to @walmart to pick up our groceries later on since it is wet and raining outside.
Staying inside can be a bit boring so I’m on the hunt for fun activities for us to do so I can keep the boys occupied.
