Have your tissues ready



My daughter. My baby.... she blessed me so.


She labored for 19 hours... finally, with two hours remaining, she gave into an epidural.

I could not be prouder of her.



Maddy, our youngest, was right there by her side.


At that very moment.... we fell deeply, madly...in LOVE.


I don't think Kaylee has stopped smiling since his birth....really.


They say being a Grand parent changes you. They were right.

I've slowed down and enjoyed every second.


In fact.. we all have.



He is just perfect.


In  every way!


Oh the LOVE


It brought back every sweet memory for us.



And Kaylee... she has melted into the roll of mommy hood like a pro.

Words can't describe watching her....its just precious!



And just in case you love sappy videos and ugly cries...

watch below.

Book Ledge DIY


I can hardly call this a DIY but here it goes.

Gather up these few things and you have yourself a fun ..fast.. project!

1x6
1x4
1x2

glue and finishing nails


It's as easy as putting these three pieces together.

I was able to make all three in just minutes for the price of one store bought ledge.


I had my husband hang them directly into studs for safety.

How cute!!



Kaylee ordered this adorable bag from Pottery Barn.

Just an FYI...

Make sure you check the sizes.

This one is the medium I believe and it's HUGE!!!!

She has it stuffed with packs of diapers now but I'm sure it will be replaced with toys soon.


She was a bit concerned of having the shelves so low but as he grows she may remove the lower one.

He may or may not be a climber.

If I were to guess...
 he will be a climber...haha


She still has to cover his outlets but I'm guessing she has a few months to go... lol


I'm so proud of her and how she has decorated his little space.

I'm so happy she has let me play in there too!




And yes...

she is still waiting...
