Dallas in the middle of summer can get a little hot. That might be a bit of an understatement… it gets REALLY hot. When we moved into our home 6 summers ago it was above 100 degrees for the entire first month! If we’re not spending our time hiding from the heat indoors with the air conditioning blowing full blast, we’re outside and in the water. Pools, splash pads, backyard sprinklers…. as long as water is involved, being outside is still an option! And the kids absolutely love it! BUT with their love for water comes the many, many scary experiences we’ve had around pools with my little ones falling/jumping/being pushed in the water. View Post

Avery truly has been the sweetest caboose to our family. When I think back to how life was while juggling the newborn twins, I just remember feeling like it was all a blur. My sister-in-law came in town for a week to help and another friend took off work for 1 week to help… and then it was all me. I struggled with not having the ‘down time’ to cuddle and relax since there was another baby that needed to bed fed/burped/changed etc (and a brand new 2 year old). To say that this has been the sweetest chapter to end on would be a huge understatement. I am SOAKING her chubby cheeks up!

But most of the time my mind is stretched pretty thin and I’ve gotta share my biggest “mom fail screw-up” with Avery. View Post

Avery is gaining weight and growing inches. With how fast time is flying I feel like she’s going to turn 1 year by next week! But y’all, it’s been so fun. Looking back, the first month was all about snuggling, waking a sleepy baby to feed, figuring out nursing, and surviving the 24 hour shifts. The eye bags were real and deep. It was hard. It was tough needing to be present View Post
