reese's birthday and sawyer's graduation.

and everything in between.

i have been meaning to post this for a while, of course. but didnt have the time. tonight, however, its just me and aidan sitting on the couch (S and M are in bed) while EJ runs reese downtown bc she had a slight fever (99-100) and we're just wanting a bit of rocephin so we can be on our way. hopefully her counts are okay and we arent admitted.

so now i have a bit of time. where i can brag on my babies.

a few weeks ago, a dear friend came into town. erin (check her out here) and her adorable children came in town for like 10 days (with a mid-week break for her to visit others who love her). we had a wonderful time. and i was over the moon blessed to have her here for reese's birthday party, as well.

her entire party was spend cuddling, hanging out, laughing, and cuddling some more - with everyone whose day was made by that cuddle time.

but first, we woke up with some [big] sister love.

  1. Oh my, your girls are so beautiful! :) There are so many pictures that I LOVE!! The sleeping pics are too cute! And the one with Reese kissing your mom (?) so sweet. And the pic with all the girls...precious! Okay, so I guess I like all the pictures you take!!;) So glad she had a wonderful birthday!

  2. All I can do is grin when reading this, and that last photo makes me smile, big and happy. Such a gorgeous family you have. :-))

  3. not all that long ago, reese was 2.5 and received a devastating diagnosis. there were so many unknowns. and we're here, 3! the big 3! i can't wait for 4! for 5! for 10! i love that things are a new set of normal for you, without scary unknowns and awful issues. i hope, hope hope hope, like hell, with all that's in me, that there are is no more scary. that all the next birthdays come quickly, that the only eventful things that happen in your lives are good things. much love, skeltes. <3

  4. Seeing all your kiddos makes me want another! You can make such beautiful babies!
