Summer’s Easter Tea Party

Today was a beautiful day for a few reasons. Today we made a commitment to submit Summer to God’s will, to prayerfully raise her up according to His Word and His ways. Today we were surrounded by family. Today we celebrated my Mum’s birthday. Today the sun shone. Today Summer and I wore matching tutus ;) …and today we were all together.

The Lord bless you and keep you;

the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;

the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

Numbers 6:24-26


Happy Mother’s Day

MothersDay3‘Motherhood is not for the meek, weak, selfish, tired, or unorganized and yet … here I am.’

Woooho it’s my FIRST Mother’s Day and I have a feeling it’s gonna be wonderful! There are so many little things I love about where I am right now in my life that I kind of want to just pause everything and stay here a little while…I can’t count how many times throughout our days together that little Summer has reminded me of how blessed we are. And I get butterflies of excitement in my stomach just thinking about all the good stuff to come!

So happy Mother’s Day to all you fabulous mothers, motherly figures and mammas to be… and a special shout out to my own beautiful mother and mother-in-law who we love very much. I’m so grateful for all you do for us.

Hope everyone gets a back rub or homemade card or a chance to sleep in (go on Summer;)!!!!!!
Happy Mother’s Day!

One Month

I have learned so many things this past month as I’ve become a mother. I’ve learned a lot about babies. I’ve learned a lot about my own baby girl. And I’ve learned a lot about myself too, how to function on a little less sleep (kind of) and type with one hand (kind of, again). I’ve learned that it’s ok to let other people help you… even if you think you can do it all on your own!! and I’ve learned how to let some things go and just sit beside my baby and take it all in.

This little girl is constantly growing and changing and she’s absolutely wonderful…my goodness one month looks good on you Summer.

Summer’s latest:
smells great
has the sweetest expressions
smiled in the bath this morning
sounds a little bit like a donkey when sleeping (very adorable)
…and loves being all wrapped up in the Solly, sleepin’ on people, snuggling in bed with Mum and Dad in the wee hours and bath time of course.

And finally a video to Summer…couldn’t have said it better myself!

Little one, today you turned one month old.

I’m exited for our journey ahead.

Don’t forget, you’re awake, you’re awesome

…and we’re really glad you’re here.
