Autumn 2015

It's the start of the holiday season which means MOAR BLOG POSTS! Two in a row? Wow I must be getting the hang of this mother-of-two thing. No not really, it's just a weekend and both boys happened to take their nap at the same time today. #WINNING.

Today we celebrated sweet Thatcher's second birthday! Whaaaat? I seriously can't believe these little ones are turning two so soon. Weren't we just sitting around the Cole's living room joking about how Thatcher was going to be that kid at Community Group running circles around the coffee table during bible study?! (Context: Julia, Ilea, and I were all pregnant and Ilea was telling us about how this kiddo was definitely going to keep her busy just based off how much he kicked her). Now these three littles - our first borns - are saying words like tractor and throwing tantrums over not being allowed to stomp around in the puddles at the pumpkin patch (sorry Connor, your rain boots don't arrive until tomorrow! #momfail).

I have to say I am incredibly thankful for these ladies, their husbands, and their little ones. I don't know how I would have made it through all the struggles and learning experiences of the first year of parenting if I didn't have these sweet families going through it with us. Having people who you can share the victories (and the mistakes!!) of first time parenting has been so good for my heart. Kennedy, Thatcher, and Connor are each so beautifully unique in their own ways, and it's been so fun to watch them all grow into these tiny little toddlers together. Now they get to experience the joys of life as an older sibling together too. I'm sure Harvey & Braden can't wait to meet Julia & Jordan's little boy! Three little boys! How crazy.

Two years have flown by, I can't wait to see what the next two years have to hold for these sweet little ones.
