At Home with Etta & a VIDEO!

When Etta was two weeks old, my sister came over one morning & captured us as a new family of SIX! I'm so grateful for these sweet photos & will cherish them forever and ever. I also turned some footage from the day into a little film for us to have & have shared it below. Etta is twelve weeks now as I share this post and she already looks so different to me & has grown so much. I can't believe we are here... six of us. 
It feels so good.
THREE    -     FOUR    -    FIVE    -    FIVE

Lucy turns FIVE!

FIVE! We love her so much. She is the sweetest & easiest child when it comes to so much, like food preferences or going with the flow, sleeping, getting ready for the day or making friends. 
She’s a little mama & is probably already capable of babysitting my child or yours, no matter what the age. She often talks to me about her being a mom one day & how she too will have four kids... they’ll live in our basement of course, “but it’ll need a kitchen”
One of my favorite qualities about her is her generous spirit. She’s one of the fewer children in the world who instead of getting something for herself, asks to spend her birthday money from Mimi on her brother & sister so that they could have Harry Potter capes like hers & could all play together. 
She has a big presence, a sweet disposition, enough moxie to handle her business & a tender, kind & loving heart. She’s arms wide open, all the time & her zest for life is admirable. So so thankful she’s our girl! 💛


Our 4th of July!

Fourth of July was sweet. 
New baby, my sweet family, a little parade, a little firework, a little food.
& a few snaps from the day!
