To my sister Elizabeth and brother-in-law Oliver on their darling newest addition…
Thomas, born in France on May 6th weighing 8.27lbs — We love you already!
I haven’t been on my computer very often the last few weeks (maybe months) – my phone is a different story – so I’m finally getting around to posting these.
We like going to this beautiful spot overlooking the ocean, there’s also a quaint park close by.
I’m learning to embrace our family’s way of “posing” and doing more candid shots helps too.
That orange sweater Preston’s wearing is gone. He kept wearing it and wearing it so I took action. It might of taken Steve a few months or a year before he started to see an orange pattern. : )
First I hid it high in his closet while we was sleeping…but the very next morning when I came downstairs there he was sitting on the couch wearing it! I still don’t know how he managed that one.
I figured a more drastic approach was needed or he’d keep finding it so…
Bye-bye orange sweater, it was getting too hot for you anyways.
These photos are a mix from Easter and Preston’s birthday.
We had a fun celebration for him with a few of his friends which was low key and relaxing — a pleasant surprise.
So far Preston’s personality has been very easy going, though he does have a determined side when he’s set on something he wants, whether that’s food (he has a sweet tooth!) or staying with dad and mom instead of going with his group at church, and not much will change his mind. It makes for an interesting contrast from his usual jolly self.
When he gets in those moods I wanna tell him ‘it’s not part of your laid back personality to do that!’, but that would just be silly since apparently it is.
And then with the other boys I expect, or at least am not surprised, by their more “intense” reactions to a host of things. Gotta love all the different personality types under one roof.
Happy Birthday Preston Sawyer, you’re one sweet kid & we love you to the moon and back!
Enjoying…lots of outside play, making tents around trees, drinking fruit smoothies, not having to get up at 6am during Spring Break, and looking forward to Easter.
Not letting…laundry, loud boys, messes, and bad attitudes take over the house. It’s minute by minute. : )
Reading…about famous characters, especially when we need a lesson in perseverance.
Attempting…to get organized before munchkin #4 is added to our “spirited” tribe.
Waiting…patiently for baby sister’s arrival, just about 13 weeks to go, so excited!!
Trying...to find the bright side on cloudy days — and I do mean figuratively.
Dreading…dear friends moving away but hope they’ll be in our future, and frequently.
Being intentional…about making these last months before Wesley begins attending school count quality time–wise.
Learning…to apologize to the kids when I’ve let my emotions get the better of me.
So blessed...to get to share life with these precious sweeties.
Hope you’re currently enjoying your little ones!
