Random Thoughts & Pictures

Here's what is going on in this scattered head of mine...  Bringing back le bullet:
  • Thank you so much for the positive response re. the "Are They Natural?" post.  I know it was a delicate subject and I'm glad it was received well.  And with that, I believe you folks know our entire fertility story and I'm so glad I can say it had an extremely happy ending.  I hope and pray the same is true for all of you with similar stories.  As always, I'm happy to answer any questions or lend an empathetic ear. :)
  • On a somewhat similar note, since we are 99% sure I will never be pregnant again I'm going to sell my maternity clothes via the blog.  I'm hoping to do this sooner than later (summer is right around the corner!) and I'm keeping my fingers crossed it works and I don't hear a bunch of crickets--haha. Anywho, figured it was worth a shot.  I'll be doing the same with some of Jude and Sloane's clothes (tear) but that will happen a little later down the road.
  •  Speaking of Jude and Sloane, they are both high rollers these days!  I will discuss the specifics on their five month post, but they are both rolling back to front and front to back.  This is slightly terrifying as I've now walked in to see Sloane on her stomach in her crib.  I realize it's not a big deal but who are we kidding, everything is a big deal to me.  The message on Sunday really hit home because I spend 96.8% of my day worried about these two (you can listen to it here).  I recited Phil 4: 6-7 throughout my pregnancy and continue to do so now that they are here.  If I ever decided to get a tattoo (mom--I won't--BREATHE), I think I'd have that scripture tattooed on my hand.
  • And just a few other randoms I want to mention so I don't forget.  Michael and I are powering through How I Met Your Mother.  We started season 1 right around the time the kids were born and are now in the middle of season 4.  Love that show.  My hair is falling out in clumps.  They said it would happen and I didn't believe them.  They were right.  The kids are so big that I'm having a really hard time carrying their carseats any sort of distance.  I'm grateful they're so healthy and my arms are getting a solid workout but man, it's exhausting!  The extended family is planning a trip to Table Rock Lake in the Spring.  The five cousins will reunite and I can't wait!
Here's some pictures.  If we are friends on Facebook and/or Instagram, feel free to sign off now as none of these are new. :)



I took this right after he rolled over from back to stomach!

Love all of these photos! And we are huge HIMYM fans! Have you seen Big Bang Theory? Another one you should power through once you are all caught up on How I Met Your Mother. :)

The chubby Bumbo babies and the Pi Day shirts are FANTASTIC! (I say chubby babies in the nicest way possible. Skinny babies look sad...I love to see wee ones with rolls!) Politely requesting a photo of your bulging biceps in your next post. :)

Ooh, I'm excited about both the maternity clothes and the boy/girl twin clothes! I am 22 weeks pregnant with b/g twins and growing rapidly! Can't wait!

i hate to tell you this BUT max and eli are 10 months old and my hair is STILL falling out-although i started taking biotin and it has helped! it's a hair/nail and skin vitamin-super cheap and i also think it really helps my skin!
on a another note-eli is now terribly torn between parker and sloane! sister wives?! :) kidding!

We have the same owl baby gym for our 3 month old son! He has loved it his whole life and is just starting to grab the owls on his own. This is my first time on your blog. I popped over from Three Ladies and Their Gent. I'll have to start following you!
