steak & watermelon.



We are smitten over here.
It has been so nice to be home as a family (after bedrest and NICU) and to begin to see what a family of five will look like for us. Chris has been working like crazy so this past weekend we went to the park, we cut up watermelon, spent time outside, walked to the park and just enjoyed the cooler weather together. 

We also started art classes at the studio this week and taking all three up there by myself has been quite the adventure! 

Our little Apple has been as easy as pie so far though…she has transitioned right into our little family. The kids love her and her little spirit is quiet and gentle. 

Somehow I already had forgotten how amazing it is to snuggle such a tiny little soul. She is precious and so loved. 

So many times over the past two weeks I have looked at her sleeping in the night and thought “what is your story?”  

She is such a huge part of my story already…but the truth is she has a whole story of her own just waiting for her.

    You have such a beautiful family! I have been following your blog for some time now, but only get around to commenting every so often. Love the pics you post. I particularly loved your Ground Round shirt. I used to go there with my grandma all the time. I have such fond memories of taking the bus to the mall and walking to the Ground Round in the mall parking lot =)

    Oh sweet babies! I'm 22 weeks pregnant with our second little boy and totally ga-ga over all things baby right now! I really need to invest in a good camera so we can have photos like this – so beautiful!

    Stopping by via Travel Babbles, saw your ad there and it reminded me to catch up with you! I used to read your blog but kind of fell out of touch with bloggyland for a bit!

    That sign, I don't know what but because of how personal and intimate it is, it really really speaks to me. "The Lord has granted me what I asked of." That's SO beautiful! I don't know what it is and it's frustrating but AH I just feel it deep inside of me. Praise Him, our glorious Father.

    ThankYou HAD me at:

    ~"what is your story?" She is such a huge part of my story already…but the truth is she has a whole story of her own just waiting for her. ~

    You see we have three grown daughters now, one lives close to us, and one left in July for missionary work for two years in Vienna Austria and the youngest left today for California….we need to let them go, it is hard for me but when I read your words…What is your story…she has a whole story waiting for her…well I could have written those words myself.

    Thank you sweetie for sharing your love and a bit of your life with us. Blessings, Melody
