I just teared up looking back through all of our memories from the year for this post. Y’all, I forgot how baby-like Weston was just at Easter of this year. He and Sophie have grown and changed SO much over the last 6 months, and don’t even get me started on Tucker. Seeing those newborn photos and videos of him had me balling. It happened so fast. Time is a thief, but thank goodness for photos. These memories are everything and our year was absolutely insane in so many ways, but even through the chaos, there were beautiful moments. Here is a look back at our 2019…
My sister married the love of her life on January 5th! We were all a part of her day and it was so beautiful and special.
One of my last bump photos before Tucker came! Weston went to my last doctor appointment with me! He was about to not be the baby anymore, but little did I know, he would be smitten with his baby brother and still enjoy lots of snuggles with me despite not being the “baby” anymore.
I love this photo of us! We were laughing so hard behind the camera and I remember it like it was yesterday.
Baby Tucker was THE highlight of our year by far. He is the sweetest baby and has a calm demeanor (reminds me a lot of Hamp). He is a perfect blend of his older brothers. He has stollen our hearts and we aren’t mad about it. <3
Look how baby-like Weston was at Easter! He has grown so much since this photo.
More sweet moments with baby Tucker! We spent that first week bonding and it was something I will cherish forever. I really learned how to slow down, take care of myself and enjoy the moments with him. 4th time’s a charm I guess!
We enjoyed many ball park days with Hamp again this year. He loved playing t-ball again and is looking forward to coach pitch this year! He improved so much from 2018’s season and we are so proud of him.
Sophie’s first dance recital was something we have both looked forward to since she could walk. Sophie is our little performer and loves to dance. She was beautiful and very entertaining. HA
Summer days and beach vacays were another highlight of our year. I love summertime and spending endless days with my babies. Making our own schedule and doing whatever we want every day. It is my favorite. We had such a fun summer of travels and spending time with friends. The memories we made make my heart full and I can’t wait for this summer to do it all again!
My baby Hamp started KINDERGARTEN! Such a big deal! He has thrived and loves his new school. We are so proud of him and all he is learning. He is reading so well and writing one “comic book” after another these days. It is his favorite pass time.
Our sweet Tucker William. He is growing so much, y’all! We will be celebrating his first birthday before we know it. He is 9 months now and is crawling everywhere and pulling up. It’s all happening so fast, but I am trying to cherish every moment of this season with him and all of my babies. I will post an update on him soon. It is long overdue.
One thing is for sure. We were faced with several challenges this year. With our jobs, our move, tough and painful relationships in our life and more, but we have learned how to come together through it all. Work it out together, make the tough decisions, have the tough conversations and grow and learn. Mine and Ryan’s relationship has grown and we have gotten so much closer this year. Our hearts have grown so much through the birth of our fourth baby and through all of our experiences – good and bad.
We said goodbye to 4 family members, two of which were too young to go, but it is through these tragedies that you learn and grow and are made aware of what is most important in your life and what you need to let go of. And I have. I’ve learned who my people are this year. I’ve learned who I can trust. I’ve made incredible new friends that are encouraging and loving and I am so thankful for those new friendships. I’ve grown so many old friendships with girls I can go to for anything (and vice versa). I have a loving husband who is there through thick and thin and a loving family who is so kind and supportive. I have four babies who are my whole world and I am excited to keep doing life with them and living all of the experiences. We have some surprises planned for our kids this next year that we are looking for forward to. I am excited to take you all along with us! Most of all, I am so thankful for a loving God. I’ve grown closer to Him this year and nothing compares to that relationship. I have learned how to really lean on Him when life feels like too much or when things get super stressful. I’ve also practiced gratitude more than ever this year and it has changed my heart for the better.
Thank YOU for being here. From the bottom of my heart. I am astonished at the amount of people that read my blog or follow along on social media every year. This hobby has grown into something much more than I could have dreamed and I am so thankful to all of you for that. I’m looking forward to what God has in store for this new year. I’m excited to keep sharing our life with you all, to keep conversating with you guys and to take you along on all of our adventures.
