A Week in Pictures

I haven’t had much time for blogging lately, and I miss it!  I am still getting used to balancing everything in my life – work, Taylor, marriage, housework, friends and family, working out….. and lots lots more.  At the end of the day, I am exhausted, and blogging has suffered a little.

With that said, how about a quick review of my week in pictures!

My FIL told me about this fun program that converts pictures to sketches.  How cool is that?  You can download it here if you’d like.  I love how the sketch captured Taylor’s beautiful eyes.

Look who’s 3 months old already?!?  I know, it FLYS by doesn’t it?  To stick with my tradition, I did a mini photo shoot with Tay on Sunday to document her being 3 months old.


I thought I loved the newborn days (and I did), but I am enjoying these days with her even more!  She is full of smiles and coos and is so much fun to be with. 

Josh and I got out last weekend and went to a 70’s and 80’s birthday party.  It was a blast!  We dressed up totally 80’s.  I through my outfit together just the day before with things I had in my closet.  All I needed to buy were those hot pink leggings which just so happened to be on clearance for $1.25 at Tar-jay!



On Monday night some friends and I got together to watch the Bachelorette finale together.  Before the show started, Cameron and Taylor had fun playing together.  Cameron is getting experience being around little babies as his little sister, Reese, is due in November!


Hope you are all having a great week!



  1. She is absolutely precious beyond words!!!!! :)

    I love the sketch photo!

  2. Balancing all of those things takes practice and we are still finding our way! Most days we get it all done and then there are days that we just need a nap :)

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
