The End of an Era- My Baby Turns Two

Today, my Forever Baby turns two. Which means that technically, I no longer have a “baby”.  And that’s a tough pill to swallow. Two years ago, Aaron and I welcomed our second sweet girl into this big, crazy world. We had no idea the impact that little soul would have on us all, how she … Continue reading

The Girl Who Made Me a Momma- 4 Years Later

It’s January 15th again. And once again, I am a filled with raw emotion. I can’t believe it’s been four years. I remember the day like it was yesterday. Every thought. Every fear. Every tear. How my heart nearly exploded when I first laid eyes on my daughter. I wasn’t suppose to meet her for … Continue reading

Stop The Whining- Luke 12:48

It’s been a week and two days shy of four years since I became a Momma, which means that I have fallen in love at least 1,451 times. It also means that I have changed more than 6,000 diapers, many with my eyes closed, because let’s face it; I’ve been in some state of exhaustion … Continue reading

The Me of 2013

Cheers to 2013, another blessed year!! The past twelve months have been happy (est) months. Healthy months. Busy months. We celebrated Harper’s 3rd birthday and Aniston’s 1st. We’ve had dreams come true and experienced the magic of Disney. I left the comfort of my job after seven years and began a new chapter in my … Continue reading

The Most Tender Heart I’ve Ever

In just 5 shorts weeks, Harper will be 4. I don’t even want to think about it. For some reason, the jump from 3-4 seems huge. I ask her nearly every day if she’ll stay my baby forever, and her answer is a consistent “No.” I don’t blame her. How selfish of me. At three … Continue reading

Am I A Bad Mom Because My Kids ARE The Center of My World

I’m that Mom. The one so many others say that don’t want to be. “I don’t want to be that Mom!” I’ve heard it to many times to count. I’m okay with who I am. And I accept others for not wanting to be like me. It’s all good. Like my girl Miranda says, “It takes all kinds of … Continue reading

My Rock Star

Aniston Paige; Rock Star. My littlest girl is nearly 16months old. Ahhhh! I know it’s cliche, but man time flies…when your going non-stop chasing after the most rambunctious mini-rock star known to man. It has been so much fun watching Aniston grow, and realizing how completely different our two girls actually are. Complete opposites. I’ve … Continue reading

He Is Worth It

I recently made a statement without realizing it might be controversial. Referring to the age-old saying that being a Mom is the hardest job in the world, I suggested that maybe, just maybe, being a good wife was actually the toughest. Notice that I didn’t simply say ‘being a wife’, I said ‘being a good wife.’ … Continue reading

My Heart Dances

When Harper was in the NICU, I prayed many prayers. Some general, ‘Lord, please save my baby!’ And some more specific, ‘Lord, I have dreamed of watching this tiny girl dance, of dressing her in sequins and tutus. Please strengthen her lungs. Please heal the hole in her heart. I just want to watch my … Continue reading

Can You Teach A Heart To Be Tender

Underdog: a person in adversity. The girl with the tattoos and piercings who is in threat of loosing her job based on her appearance… The girl fresh out of college, getting dirty looks from the executive in the BMW who she parks beside in the parking garage (how dare she park that thing next to … Continue reading
