Our Wiggle Worm is 7 Months Old!

“If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” -Roald Dahl


It’s true, just the thought of Jude makes us beam, especially now that he’s slithering around as fast as a snake. One minute he’s on the carpet, the next minute he’s peeking around the cabinets to find out where I’m cooking. He’s obsessed with avocados and loves to eat with us. This last month he’s grown so much, it feels like every 5 days he’s able to do something new all on his own. Secretly, my favorite learning of his is how he extends his arms out to me when he wants his mama.  *Melt*

Now, that he’s so squirmy, I’m finding I need to take less photos of him on the glider and more pictures of him confined to our laundry basket or tied to the car.  Some of my favorites from this past week, are the photos I snapped while he looked himself in the mirror. What would it be like to have two of Jude?!?

Double the Beautiful Trouble

“Sugar and spice and everything nice, that’s what little girls are made of.”


I worried for a second that I lost my cool aunt factor when I became a mom, but this weekend proved that I still have it in me to get silly, play house, and share secrets with the little ones. One of my favorite moments with the girls, was when Asha said she wished I could be her older sister. If only we lived closer, than she would invite her friends over and we could play salon. Where I would be tasked to do their hair for them. I’m already looking forward to seeing them in October.

The #Brylerie Affair

“I want the kind of marriage that makes my kids want to want to get married.” -Emily Wierenga


This past weekend we had the pleasure of witnessing my sister-in-law tie the knot with Bryan. The weather was perfect, the food was delicious, and the celebrations continued on and on and on. It was a beautiful wedding at a beautiful location. Here’s to the happy couple! May the years to come be filled with abundant joy! 

Keep your eyes opened this week for another post. I couldn’t resist taking pictures of two sweet beauties I spent all weekend with. = )
