Our baby girls has had a huge weekend! She started taking steps unaided, signing nurse and more, saying WaWa and Oof (for doggie). 

It’s all happening so fast. I can’t believe how much she’s changing.

Daddy left for a work trip today and poor Lou was so so sad about it. 

We cuddled on the couch for a long time and I stroked her cheek. We talked about how amazing Daddy is and how much we miss him when he’s away.

After awhile, I started telling Lou how much I love her and that I love her no matter what happens or what she does. I told her I loved her when she’s angry. And when she’s sad. I love her when she does what we ask, and when she doesn’t. 

She was quiet for a long moment. 

Then, in a soft squeaky voice, she asks:

“But will you love me if I’m a dragon?”

Jonah Lee, 7

Loves: Royals baseball, camping, rock climbing, adventure and travel. 

Passionate about the homeschool group, including drama club, explorers club, dances and camp outs. 

Reliable and steadfast, he sometimes holds the family together. 

Tremendous Entreprenurial spirit in this little boy. Amazing at math, reading and creative writing. Recently began playing the violin, something he mentioned as a toddler. 

So wonderfully caring with his baby sister.  


Emery Anne, nearly 6

Loves: Taking care of others, particularly her baby sister. Art of all types. Climbing trees. 

Just started riding her bike without training wheels and has her first loose tooth. Caring and compassionate. 

Love her unique perspective, determination and unfailing love for her family and friends.  


Eloise, nearly 4

Favorite saying: Beaufitul. 

Loves: Animals of all kinds, particularly rabbits, dogs and horses. Snuggling with Daddy or Mommy at bedtime. 

Can write her own name…except for the S, those suckers are tricky. 

Impish and challenging, but oh so sweet. Her stubborn streak will be sure to benefit her as a grown up.
