Party of SIX

These past six weeks in review!


Ella Grace arrived

Healthy and Amazing! We all fell in love immediately and some how more and more each day since.



Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt

Emalyn had a blast this year, especially after she realized there were candies in the eggs. This babies sweet tooth went on the hunt to pick up as many eggs as she could get her hands on!

Easter Sunday

Emalyn and I ended up with the stomach virus all weekend but we managed to make it to see Gabi baptized and to dye a few Easter eggs at home.

Another beautiful day at the Biltmore Estate! I decided this past week that I would run the Ramble 5K with my Mom and Sister for Mother’s Day this year. I figured this would be a great short term goal to help get these pregnancy pounds off. Today Gabi was a champ and pushed the double BOB so that I could actually run 3 miles 🙂 I was so proud to even be able to run that far since I haven’t actually run in a long while. Feels good to get back at it even if I am Slow 😉

We are all doing great and enjoying the weather now that Spring has actually Sprung! Emalyn has adjusted so well to being a big sister, every morning she looks around for “baby” to check in on her. We can’t wait to watch the girls grow together.  Emalyn is a busy toddler keeping us all entertained and Ella Grace is a very chill baby just like Em was. Gabi and I couldn’t be happier with our little family 🙂

Until next time (hopefully sooner than later)
