March 2016

March was a special month, on the 19th we welcomed sweet little Kate into our family! She has been such a joy and we love having a sweet little one in our home again. We are enjoying all of the sweet moments a newborn brings along with the craziness too. We were super lucky to have both my mom and dad come visit and help out following her birth. They have been AMAZING and we have enjoyed our time with them. 

Read all about Kate's birth story and see her video here.

Kate's 1 week photos.

We had a lot of fun with my parents and brother and sister and are so grateful for all of their help. It was fun to listen to General Conference together and celebrate Easter with my parents and a newborn in the home. 

My mother in law spent a week with us too following Kate's birth, she arrived just as my parents left.  I love this picture of my girls with their Grandma's!

A few days before Kate joined our family James turned 7!

James 7th Birthday

James is 7 years old! He loved opening presents and celebrating his special day!  He celebrated with a star wars ice cream cake and got a Jurassic park lego set, lighsaber, remote controlled dinosaur and star wars toys for his birthday.

Maternity Photos

One of my friends offered to take some maternity photos a few weeks before baby Kate arrived. Pregnancy is a difficult thing for me and I am not one that easily embraces the maternity belly or feels beautiful carrying around an extra 30 pounds but I am so grateful we got these. 

I was starting to wonder if this would be my last time being pregnant and still don't know what our future holds. These will be treasured photos.
