Adjusting to Four

We are here just making the most of time spent at home and taking small little adventures with my new crew I’d four. A month of meals from family and friends has us very spoiled and allowed us all to adjust to life with a fourth. I am not sure where I would be if…

Three weeks with Baby Brother

Yesterday we celebrated Mother’s Day with early Mass. I had to eat my cereal while nursing Nicholas in bed. I would normally get pancakes or avocado toast in bed but since we had lunch plans and Ryan signed us up to bring flowers to Mary before the start of church we needed to get out…

Welcoming Nicholas Fulton

I have always loved the name Ethan for a boy, it was our choice when we had our three girls. It is so funny to me that this time around the only name we agreed upon was Fulton. The Venerable Fulton Sheen is a Catholic Bishop who wrote over seventy books on the Catholic faith…

The week before we welcomed baby

I was preparing to write this on the Sunday I went into labor but here I am as a mom of four just wanting to remember the week leading up to meeting our handsome new family member. The entire week prior we had visitors showering us with love and gifts in anticipation for the new…

First Beach Day of 2021

4.10.2021 I remember the first beach day of 2020, the coast had been closed and it was the first weekend that people were allowed to visit. It was very busy but it was so needed at that time. We absolutely love coming here and try to come as much as we can. We weren’t sure…

Easter 2021

This year I really wanted to savor this entire week leading up to Easter. I desired to be absorbed by the meaning of this most wonderful gift of heaven given to us in the most selfless of ways. We attended mass on Holy Thursday and participated in the washing of the feet. We attended mass…

Preparing for baby four and home birth

I have the minivan, planned car seat and sleeping arrangements in my mind and washed all the things for a brand new baby. Now we patiently wait as I grow more sleep deprived with frequent trips to the bathroom preparing me for newborn feedings. I am almost 36 weeks pregnant and nearly full-term, which means…

Gardening with my Girls

Mia has been asking just about everyday for the past month to grow vegetables. She has been saving seeds from her fruits and vegetables. We told her she should use what we have if she is adamant on growing. She has currently covered my back porch in pots of dirt with her little plant babies….

Johnson City Baby Shower

It is hard for me to put into words the amount of love I have felt lately. I returned home last night to my husband waiting for me in the driveway. After the kids gushed over their exciting weekend with daddy, I tucked my girls into bed. Ryan had the best time hanging out with…

Norah turns TWO

We celebrated this cutie by bringing her to the zoo on the Sunday before her birthday. We visited the zoo in January and her reaction to all the animals was just the best so we knew we had to bring her back so daddy could experience the zoo with her. Norah enjoyed every moment, she…
