I'm Back... Sort Of


I’m back after more than a year’s hiatus! And, wow, has it been a crazy year!! I wouldn’t even know where to begin to fill people in on the in’s and out’s of this past year, so I’m not even going to try. So much has changed from home projects, major Jack Jack milestones, and the addition of a new family member. And it’s because of that last change that I’ve decided to resurrect this blog.

See, I need this space because I need to remember. I need to remember all the moments with these precious littles the Lord has entrusted to me. I want to remember the happy first baby coos and the disgusting blowouts that defy gravity. I want to remember the easy times of contently rocking my babies to sleep and the hard times where I feel like I’ve failed them as a mother, yet am grateful for the lessons learned and the grace they show me day in and day out.

The truth is, this season of life is hard. Like really freaking hard. But I know it’s so fleeting. I just don’t want to forget…

I have no idea how often I’ll write or what I’ll write about. It may just be month to month updates of my new baby girl like I did for her older brother. I don’t think I’ll be able to carve out a lot of time for this space, but I’d like to try.


So I’m back! Kind of? Maybe? I guess we’ll see… There are just so many moments – good and bad – that I never want to forget with this little tribe of mine.

Welcome back! And congrats on your little girl :) I love her name, but I'm 100% biased since my daughter is an Ellie too ;)
