reagan: one month!

This little miss turned one month! I can’t believe it…that month flew by for sure. While I’ve been learning and figuring out life with three, she is definitely a perfect addition to our family. Leland loves her and is always bringing her toys and pacifiers, or trying to get her to wake up- haha! Beau makes sure to give her plenty of kisses which is adorable. For now, she mostly just sleeps but I’m excited to see her start smiling and have a little bit of personality. Oh, and she’s still itty bitty and 8.5 pounds. So glad I had a good stash of newborn clothes because she is definitely getting good use out of them!
P.S. Yes, I got this monthly idea off Pinterest. ;) I already had this banner so I loved the idea!

That’s so precious Arielle! Great idea. Pictures will be so treasured later as well!

reagan’s nursery.

There had to of been at least ten shades of peach paint on these walls before we painted this room! Who knew that a light pink/peach color of wall paint could be so hard to pick out?! Needless to say, we ended up sticking with the color thats on the wall now. Reagan’s room is pretty quaint so there wasn’t a lot of room for too much furniture. I love it, though, and it is definitely warm and inviting! There is just enough “vintage” in the room and her bedding (which is also vintage inspired) adds to the room! I tried to collect little things here and there through out my pregnancy for her nursery. Most were from antique stores, home goods, and etsy. The flower and crystal mobile was one of the first things that I had made for the nursery…I sewed each flower of the mobile which was a nice long project. :) The small table, dollhouse, and bookshelf were antique finds that I re-painted. The rocking chair I also re-painted and re-upholstered. A lot of work and love went into this little space….Reagan and I love to spend time in here!

My daughter Lucy has those same Beatrix Potter books! They belonged to my husband when he was a baby. I love the post! Your photos are beautiful.

So beautiful… I love the coral and the aqua!

Is it weird that I want to have this room, even though I’m already 22? Too pretty and adorable! I’m sure Reagan will love growing up in this haven :)

It’s really cute, I love the colours! It’s so funny the differences between ‘small’ in the states and over here in the uk- it looks a little smaller than the room my two little ones share, and about twice the size that Phoebe (2) slept in until we moved two months ago;) xx

leland: four years!

Leland turned four years old last week! Beau and him were also sick so I know that this is a little late :) I can’t believe that he is four years old now. So bittersweet, that’s for sure. I love the age that he is and the stage that he is in, but he is definitely getting so much older. Not much of a toddler anymore. It has been great having him help out with Beau and Reagan and lets me know anytime the “babies” are crying! ;) Little does he know that in my heart, he is still my baby. My first. And it seems like yesterday he was just as little and small as they are. I love his funny and outgoing personality, he always has us laughing. Here’s to Leland’s fourth year being the best yet!

 

  

reagan brielle’s newborn photos.

Well, I’m not a newborn photographer but I wanted to try and take Reagan’s newborn photos so I did just that :) She has been so much fun (well she mostly sleeps…always) but we are so glad she’s a part of our family. Now that we are finally all better and not sick around here, the boys have been spending more time with her and love her! These are a few of my favorites that I took and I can’t wait to frame a couple and put them in her room!

  

they are so sweet! : )

the first days at home.

These few pictures are from Reagan’s first few home days from the hospital. I am so glad that Jay took these because I always want to remember those first days home. They were so sweet. (And not too long after, everyone in our house got sick…) I’m pretty sure I was walking around in a sort of fog due to lack of sleep from labor and all, but I was also so thankful to be home with my three little ones and Jay. I was glad to be out of the hospital, and to have Reagan here with us. Jay goes back to work tomorrow and it is sort of bittersweet. Well, definitely more bitter and not really so sweet. I am so thankful that he was able to be off the past couple of weeks- what a blessing!! Having his help has been made adjusting to three much easier. We will miss him! :)

  

She is beautiful!

Such Precious Moments! <3

Beautifulll!!!

Love your robe due soon where is it from

reagan brielle.

Reagan Brielle made her entrance into the world Tuesday, September 23rd.

7 pounds 3 oz. 20  1/4  long.

We are so thrilled to have her added to our family!! There is no way to describe the feelings I felt in the hospital other than being in a state of euphoria. Completely overwhelmed by God’s goodness and this tiny precious gift. Leland is loving having a little sister and always wants to check on her…Beau still doesn’t really fully understand but thats ok, one day he will ;) The past few days I’ve been soaking it up and taking it in all in….so with that being said, I’m off to go get some more newborn snuggles now :) Much love!

Congratulations, Arielle and family!

For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
Psalm 139:13-16

Welcome, Reagan!

He looks so much like your little boys here! Congrats on the new little bundle! Your photos are so absolutely perfect, I can’t wait to see more lovely Reagan pictures!

I can’t believe she already happened — I know I am not speaking from your end of things, but that seemed so fast!

Soak it up and congrats!

She’s just gorgeous!

Whew. I had baby fever there for a minute! Need to rein that in for at least another year!

Congratulations Arielle. She’s absolutely beautiful!!
I had my third baby (first boy!) at the beginning of September.
