isla jane is 5 whole months old. i won't broken record it by telling you that i can't believe we are here, and that time is a rude + sneaky little thief + all of that... okay i did. but aren't you as stunned as i am? you'd think third time around it would get less surprising but that's a giant NO. she's alert + smiley + giggles, has a tiny tooth poking through + is FIVE MONTHS OLD!! which is basically 6, and i should just go ahead and start planning her first birthday party. seriously though, i feel like it was yesterday that i had her + abel held her for hours on end + she slept all the time + was easy to nurse one handed... but here we are 5 months later. she is still the very easiest part of every day + is still lighting our world over here. i mean, her and lucy are so stinkin' cute together, i can't even.
parenting young children is hard work. like, constant hard work... but today isla's little tooth popped through, and abel asked a million questions while we all watched the BFG tonight, + i watched lucy bounce around the kitchen being silly with chris + thought to myself what a cute little two year old she is. my night ended with isla asleep on my chest, abel at my side + lucy in and out of my lap, and i couldn't help but cry + think what a beautiful, fleeting life i have, boatloads of work and all.
i love you little baby. happy 5 months. you're the third child of my dreammmms.
Matching Christmas jammies seriously make me so happy, I look forward to a new pair for the kids each year! When these showed up from L'oved Baby I was allllll happy dance!! Their goods are some of the very best quality out there, and always unlike anything you can get at a bigger retail store. We've already loved them well & I'm so excited to see these cute tired faces wearing them, come Christmas morning! The best time of the year is here guys!
Head over to lovedbaby.com and snag yourself a pair or three!
We had our first snow last week, thanksgiving has come & gone, we put up our tree & the merriest time of year is officially in full swing! The big kids were old enough to do more than potentially harm the ornaments this year & it really was all I'd ever envisioned when it came to holidays & kiddos & traditions. Abel was so intentional with his process, picking & choosing perfect spots for each ornament. He explained what "jolly" is to me while he trimmed that tree, and I can't believe the difference almost 4 years makes in your kids... mind blowing. Lucy sang & bounced around the room, needed help with most of the ornaments & loved on sweet isla. 'Tis the season for all things jolly, I'm so thankful for our little family & what God has given us.
