A Peek Into the Final Two Weeks

When massive brother tries to suit into your toy automobile. 😉

Kierstyn is obsessive about make-up… she in some way discovered my mascara and went to city with it!

She additionally LOVES play-doh!

I used to be requested to go document some movies and interviews with Concentrate on the Household about Love-Centered Parenting.

As a result of I’m nonetheless nursing Kierstyn and I’d must fly to Colorado Springs and keep in a single day, Jesse and I made a decision to go collectively and convey Kierstyn and Child D.

It was our first time to fly with two lap infants and we realized quite a bit from the expertise (like, as an illustration, you could’t sit in the identical row except there may be an empty seat — as a result of there is just one additional oxygen masks per row. This brought about loads of final minute scrambling and less-than-idea seats on the flights there.)

However, we made it work and it was a reminiscence, for certain!

Total, she did SO properly on the 8 hours of flights (4 totally different flights) over two days. This pop-it e-book was considered one of her favourite airplane toys.

I beloved attending to document a radio interview + a number of totally different video interviews in a number of studios within the three hours I used to be at Concentrate on the Household. I’m excited to get to share the message of Love-Centered Parenting and the way God has modified my life and our household by means of the final 4 years.

Each time, we acquired to Colorado Springs, I’m at all times simply in awe of how stunning it’s!

We additionally go to spend just a few hours with Jesse’s sister and her household whereas we have been in Colorado Springs (they dwell there).

Kierstyn beloved attending to spend time together with her cousins.

We beloved getting to point out Kierstyn and Child D the mountains for the primary time!

After which it was again onto a airplane once more to move residence!

Making an attempt to get out as a lot power as potential earlier than boarding the airplane.

I used to be attempting to doc the truth that we acquired a row with an empty seat so we have been capable of sit subsequent to one another — however this was one of the best image I acquired with two wiggling little ones!

Child D had an appointment with the Complicated Care Clinic and the whole lot is trying SO good! He’s gaining weight, making loads of developmental strides, and he brings a lot pleasure to our residence! I can’t imagine we’ve had him for nearly 4 1/2 months!

Silas had a baseball event once more on Saturday and Sunday. So we spent a lot of time sitting on the sidelines cheering him on.

It poured rain for a part of the event, and we have been so grateful we had put up the tent!

We celebrated Child D’s birthday and tried to include as many traditions from his tradition as we may. We had enjoyable doing a pinata.

And he was enthusiastic about sitting within the sweet — even when he couldn’t eat it! We additionally acquired tamales and tres leches cake from a neighborhood restaurant.

He was capable of eat slightly little bit of the cake and whipped cream (he’s working onerous in feeding remedy to be taught to swallow… he principally can solely do a tiny little bit of purees proper now and he nonetheless will get all of his feeds and meds by means of the feeding tube. However he’s slowly making progress and we’re so inspired by it!)

We additionally did a chocolate cake and let him smash it — which he had a lot enjoyable with. I acquired among the greatest photos, however all of them had his face in them and we don’t share his face on-line for privateness causes. However I want I may present you!

This previous week was spent in a extremely sudden manner — together with a visit to the pressing care, physician’s workplace, and hospital for Kierstyn. Most of my week I simply held her, tried to consolation her, and nursed her. She was so sick for just a few days, however we’re extremely grateful that she is sort of utterly again to her regular self once more!

(You possibly can learn extra right here and right here for particulars. Thanks to these of you who heard about her sickness from Instagram and have been praying for her. It’s such a reminder to cherish each day.)
