You are one!! How in the world did this year fly by so fast?! I feel like it was just the other day we were on our way to the hospital about to have you in the car haha. But I also feel like you’ve always been with us. Our family isn’t complete without you and we all love you so much! We prayed for you for so long and having you is so special to us! We prayed for a little baby that felt like a baby (because your sissy always felt so grown up to us) and that’s exactly what we got! You are our petite, feisty, silly, independent, dancing, adorable, strong little girl!
On Wednesday morning Avery woke up unusually early. When I went into her room to ask her what she was doing up so early (she’s not a morning person) she told me she just wasn’t tired. I kept wondering if today was the day Brooklyn was going to be born. Continue reading
We have finished Brooklyn’s nursery and I’m so excited! I’m 34 weeks along and it’s nice to have the major task done in case she comes earlier than expected. Avery didn’t have her own room until we moved to Tennessee so it was very exciting designing and making things for a nursery this time around. We decided to go with lavender, gray and white for her room because Avery’s room right across the hall is pink, gray and white. I love walking by and seeing two sweet little girl rooms all done up!
Ok now to all the photos! Continue reading
Tomorrow is Avery’s first day of homeschool preschool and I’m so excited! I’m glad that she’s doing homeschool this year and next year because I don’t like being without her! She truly feels like one of my limbs so without her I go crazy! Last year I would do a little bit of learning time with her and mainly read lots but this is the first year that we have an actual curriculum, schedule and corner for school. Continue reading
As some of you may know I write a letter to Avery every year around her birthday and I thought I would share this year’s letter on my blog! So here it is:
Dear Avery Gracie,
You are 3 years old!! Mama is amazed at the sweet, amazing, smart, kind, insightful, quick, whole hearted big girl you are. Continue reading
Hey everyone! I apologize for not posting blogs as much lately. This is a super busy time of year for us because my birthday, Avery’s birthday and Josh’s birthday are all within 20 days! We finished everything for Avery’s 3rd birthday party this weekend so the next blog I do will be all about her party! 🙂 Anyways! A couple months ago I decided I wanted to do a garden for the first time this spring. Continue reading
Teaching Avery about God and raising her up like God wants is SOO important to Josh and I! We wouldn’t be the parents we are to Avery without him! Even before Avery was born we prayed for her all the time! For her personality, her future, her heart and her relationships. One thing my dad did for me which I loved was pray for my future husband even as a child. I love knowing that my dad prayed for Josh long before I knew him. I want Avery to find a husband just like Josh and be married forever! Continue reading
