Lately I feel like my days are just passing by in a blur. I don' t know if it's life with three kids or if it's the daily routine we seem to keep that makes time fly by or what, but I really want to remember some of the routine/regular but special moments with my kids.
Moments with my almost two year old Avery. She is spunky, funny, wild and SO much fun! She loves to dress up in just about anything - accessories, big sisters clothes, little brothers clothes, household items - you name it and she'll try to put it on!
People are always telling me what a trip she is but that she seems as though she's giong to give me a run for my money. She's giving us a run for our money people - there is no "going to" about it. Luckily the fact that she is so cute seems to make the aforementioned run a little less painful.
 Moments with my handsome sweet little lovable Grey. He will be 6 months old in a few days and it almost hurts me - I just love every moment of being with him and being his Mommy. I tell him all the time that he's "just so kissable" and he is!

 Moments of watching these two develop their relationship. They are the BEST of friends. Don't get me wrong....they bicker just like all other siblings, but for the most part they are so sweet to each other and they have so much fun running around this house and playing all kinds of make believe games and pretending to be every imaginable character under the sun!
 I love these precious t-shirts from their Great Aunt Kathryn and I hope every word on them is true - that my girls will "Always love Jesus".

 Avery loves her babies and loves to take care of them - rock them, feed them, stroll them and even carry them in her little front pack.
 I love those moments when I stumble upon Kennedy playing with her little brother...not because I asked her to, but because she wanted to. Greyson ADORES her as you can see in this picture. Kennedy is such a nurturer and it's just really sweet to watch her grow and want to be of help to her Daddy and I in any way that she can - even with her siblings.
 This big girl lost her second tooth on 01-11 and I think she was more excited about using her new/hand me down tooth fairy pillow from her cousin Catherine than she was about losing the tooth and or getting a visit from the tooth fairy. Ha! Moments like this are reminding me that she's growing up. She has been wiggling one of her top teeth for well over a week so before I know it #3 will have bit the dust!
 My little sweet cheeks.

My big girls
Last weekend Tim and I went and visited a local elementary school for their information session and registration for the upcoming school year. I've been homeschooling Kennedy and have literally enjoyed every moment of my time spent with her. She has learned so much since we started and it's been such an awesome experience to be with her and watch her grown and learn, but we're open to what the Lord wants for her and for our family where school choice is concerned. If homeschooling is what is in our future I'm good with that, but if there is a spot in this school for her, I'm good with that too (though I know it will be hard). The school I'm talking about is a charter school and the way one gets into this particular school is by lottery. We have officially entered Kennedy into the lottery for kindergarten and we should know on March 3rd whether or not she was drawn and will have a spot for the upcoming school year. I really want to have her where God wants her to be and I think at this point we feel really great about the school and thankfully it's pretty cut and dry...either God closes that door and I home school her next year, or he leaves it open and there is a place for our sweet girl there.

On the way home from the session, I just kept thinking and even said out loud to Tim "how did we get here". I mean, it's just crazy that my baby is about to go to school! If she gets into this school, classes begin in July because they are on a year round schedule versus the traditional summers off type of schedule. Y'all, July will be here before I know it. Now you understand the title of this posting...I'm trying to savor every one.


  1. love this. sometimes I feel like I get so caught up in the parenting aspect of parenting that I forget to embrace the little moments that make parenting so fulfilling. I love your babies. I want to squeeze them and snuggle them!!

  2. I know I say it ALL.THE.TIME. but I cannot believe how big K is. Time goes so fast... I love your babies and I love how you LOVE your babies... So glad you and your sweet family are such an important part of my life...

  3. I love all the pictures you posted. It's fun to watch those little munchkins grow and see their personalities bloom. Wonder how Grey will pose when he's big enough to really let his personality out.
    K being old enough for school chokes me up. They are growing up way too fast. Miss you all to pieces!!!

  4. You are going to turn around and she will be 11 and you will be thinking about Middle School!! I am not kidding, I am not sure where the Elementary days have gone....hold on tight!!

  5. I love these pictures of these sweet kids!!
