Jae Riz is Three!

Jae Riz is Three!

On Jaeda’s birthday, the zoo threw a party for their members. Jaeda was certain it was for her. James took off work, a few family members drove down, and we made a wonderful day of it! Aunt Hoopie still has a broken foot, but all the kids got to take turns riding in her wheelchair.  […]

Rain, rain, time to play.

Rain, rain, time to play.

Last week, we had the rain storm to top all rain storms. At least 20 minutes of downpour. Liddi and Jaeda were still sleeping when the rain started. Corban and I ran out to the porch in awe of the sheer power of the torrent. Neighbor girl Samantha ran over. “Come dance in the rain with […]

The Dunes: A Surprise

The Dunes: A Surprise

One day, there was a mom who didn’t know where they were going. This didn’t seem to bother the son, since he had been given a rare car snack. And the daughter tended to not worry about anything anyway. And the baby just wanted milk in her belly at all times, no matter their location. But the sneaky […]

A Month of Liddi

A Month of Liddi

Last month, Liddi started moving in her sleep. I definitely laid her horizontally this night. She smiles and smiles and smiles. She’s been smiling more for me than anyone else (hmm I wonder why). So much so that when we hear her waking up, Corban and Jaeda fly up the stairs ahead of me, shouting, […]

Jaeda’s Pain

Jaeda’s Pain

There once was a little girl named Jaeda who loved to swing from grown-up arms. One day, she jumped too hard and got a bad owie. Of course, they were visiting family in Michigan. Her mom and grammie took her to urgent care. They were too nervous with Jaeda’s owie. So they went to the […]

Welcome to the Steeles’!

Welcome to the Steeles’!

James made us a “hipster badge” on the reverse of the scary tiki man boogie board. I wanted something with our name and year, and he took it from there! I absolutely love what he did! He created a stencil, cut it out, and spray painted the board. The kids and I came back from […]

First Mother’s Day with Three

First Mother’s Day with Three

Having Mother’s Day close to your birthday (ohmyword am I talking about my birthday again?!) is the best. A week’s worth of celebrations or extra sweet nothings (like drinking juice for breakfast mmm). This Mother’s Day, we felt like celebrating with another family, a mom whose little son allowed her to celebrate this day for the […]

The Bumbo and the Playmat: A Girl’s Best Friends

The Bumbo and the Playmat: A Girl’s Best Friends

This little girl with the round face (that’s only getting rounder) is a nursing and sleeping champ. She’s not, however, a very good awake champ. It’s been over a week of general waketime fussiness. I’m thinking a growth spurt? So much eating. So much sleeping. (So much fussing.) But in her happy awake moments (which […]

Jon & Sam

Jon & Sam

Jon and Sam graced us with their beautiful presence within their first few weeks after finishing their freshman year…of college! They’ve been attending Liberty University in Virginia, so our visits with them are even sweeter than before, just knowing that they’re so much less frequent. While they were here, my birthday present from my mom […]
