She is a wild one, our little whirlwind. But with babies she is gentle and motherly and compassionate. And can you see the love on her face? Melts my heart.

Sweet Nolie Kate in the dress we bought the day we found out she was a she. Tiny cuffs and plaid and the teeniest pocket you've ever seen 💕

Went today to check out my parents' farm house renovation. White shiplap on walls and ceilings, 10" baseboards, 5 panel doors, gorgeous tile and light fixtures... You really can't tell where the original 1850s house ends and the new addition begins. Can't wait to see it completed in about 10 days! #newoldhouse #shiplapeverywhere

First day of kindergarten and pre-k 2. Besides being a little teary at how BIG they all are, I'm thankful baby waited so I could be here for their first day. Now I'm (impatiently) waiting for her arrival. #firstdayofschool #8moredaystilbaby

It's the last full week of summer before school starts, it's HOT out, mama's almost 38 weeks pregnant, Hammie is potty training, and the Olympics are on. So we're camped out in the living room with the TV, a picnic lunch, and a baby potty and skittles. #yougottadowhatyougottado

So thankful for this man and the selfless way he loves, serves, and leads us.  He is truly my best friend and partner, and a better daddy than I could have imagined.  Happy birthday, Honey!

My sweet husband just gifted me with the best birthday/anniversary/new baby/Christmas/mother's day present ever. We still have to finish adding hardware, and I'm planning to paint the back door and the inside of the two open cabinets a pretty color, but I am loving how it turned out!

My sweet husband finished this (not-so-easy-after-all) vanity project over the weekend. He is truly one of the most patient, servant-hearted men, and he also happens to be good at plumbing and woodworking. #ipickedawinner #thenestingisoutofcontrol #thankshoney

Just an enlarged photo of my girl (straight from the phone), but it makes me so happy 😊

So I recently realized that all three of my (current) kiddos are soon to be middle kids. #mindblown #adoptionrocks

We just celebrated the day five years ago when we brought home our two tiny babies.  We were clueless, but after living our first two weeks as a family in a shoebox of a hotel room, caring for one very sick baby in a developing country, and traveling forty exhausting hours home, we learned pretty quickly that it's all in God's hands.  And five years later, I can say that He has been faithful and gracious and good.  #sothankful #adoptionrocks #Godisgood

Going see if we can turn the dresser on the left into the vanity on the right. Keith tells me normal people would go to the store and buy a new vanity. #sorryhoney #wearenotnormalpeople

Hammie has been helping me design a stencil for our dining room, and I think we have a winner! Now to pick a color. (And do the actual stenciling.) #herewego
