From Instagram: Happy snuggles. This week, at just shy of 9 months old, Lucas finally figured out how to "crawl" forward. Technically it's more of a butt scoot with his leg tucked up under him, but either way, he's moving! We're hoping his newfound freedom will help him to be a little less clingy, but it's…

From Instagram: Happy birthday to this guy! He works so hard at everything he does, loves his family fiercely, dreams big dreams, teaches our kids to wonder at the beauty around them, AND supports me in everything I do. We are lucky, indeed! We spent four days this week at Wintergreen, a four-seasons resort in…

From Instagram:He may get his love of vacuums from Daddy, but he gets his love of nectarines from his Mama! It's been a heavy week, y'all. And if I'm honest, I'd like to hide from it all, share a cute baby picture (okay, still couldn't resist that part!), a few tasty recipes, an encouraging post…

{From Instagram} I've started calling these boys the "bonus babies." We thought we were done having babies after our 4th daughter, and we were D-O-N-E after Jackson, but I'm so glad we didn't have the final say at that point because their relationship and sweetness outweighs the sleepless nights, dirty diapers, and numerous trips to UVA…

How to find Kindle deals on the books you actually want to read

Today I'm sharing my secret for finding Kindle deals on the books you actually want to read!  When I got my first Kindle for Christmas almost 7 years ago, I had almost completely given up reading altogether due to the busyness of those early years of motherhood. I always had a baby in my arms,…

10 books to inspire you to take back your life

The last week of April was a bit of a hot mess here. Sean was out of town for a couple days taking care of his grandfather, we were in the middle of our biggest bundle launch to date at Ultimate Bundles, Lucas and Jackson both had colds, and we were preparing for a month…

From Instagram: This is becoming a habit. While baby sleep has never really been my strength as a parent, this guy really threw us for a loop. On our first night home from the hospital, at just 24 hours old, he flat out refused to sleep anywhere except my arms, a pattern that has continued for…

From Instagram: Hey there, big shot! Our littlest stud muffin is 7.5 months now, and I can't believe how fast it's going. He's still not a great sleeper, still nurses around the clock, and still doesn't have much use for solid food (although he acts like he wants it all), but milestones like this one remind…

From Instagram: We can't stop laughing, LOL! This week feels like summer is in full swing...the pool and trampoline are set up in the backyard and in constant use, we're snacking on watermelon and fresh-squeezed lemonade, and we're trying to carve out as much time as possible for play dates and special day trips. Well, the…

From Instagram: My oldest took this photo of the boys playing, and I love it so much!  It turns out that we brought a cold virus home with us from Florida, so this week included quite a few sleepless nights and fussy days. Thankfully, everyone seems to be on the mend now! In between helping me…
