After four kids, ten moves and nearly two decades, we are still blissfully in love (most of the time) and I found myself back in the state I was born and raised in. It has definitely been a journey. In fact, on our 18th anniversary we pulled the last of our stuff up over the pass and into Montana, leaving our surprise love, Idaho, behind. But Montana is a great place. The last best place according to some. And we fully intend to explore as much of it as we can! Join us on our continued adventure through life, love and other stuff that comes with it.

A beautiful thing

Grace keeps asking to have her brother wrapped on her.  And of course if he's happy and fed and changed, I am happy to do it for her.  So last night when we were working on dinner, she had him all wrapped up in her wrap.  And this time I actually got a good wrap job on her so he was nice and high and snug.  They looked great.  And now this is officially my favorite picture of the two of them.


A while ago I blogged here that in our culture we aren't raising our kids to know about babies and raising kids.  I'm trying to fix that, at least in my family.  This little girl gets it.  You should have seen her walking around, holding his little head, swaying and talking to him.  And he was just eating her up.  Both of them were thrilled to be where they were doing what they were doing.

It's a beautiful thing these babies and siblings.  A beautiful thing.

yes indeed it is! Precious. I have always said it's worth having siblings for your children almost more to watch the bond between them as it is for the parents to be parents again!! My boys are still AMAZING with Rayce. I LOVE IT!
