Luke woke up this morning and decided, “I will poop in my pants no more.” ✌🏻 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 He’s never gone in the potty mainly because we’ve never pushed it or even tried potty training him and all day today he’s gone #☝🏻 and #✌🏻 in the potty on his own!! 😁 Here’s to hoping he’s ready!
Any advice would be great! 💕
My 3yo made this minestrone soup and rosemary facciata bread with her grandma! I love that she is making these memories and developing a love for cooking, even eating most of the food she helps prepare. She gets to practice counting and patience too!
What are you favorite kid friendly, real life activities? .
I love that we can go months without seeing each other but when we get together nothings changed! We’ve had many adventures from bareback horse rides and camp outs just us and our horses in the hills to barrel racing in small hometown shindigs, Amish singings and teenage first world issues, she was there thru it all! And then today she went in circles for hours on the 3 wheeler making our lil dare devils (who kept asking for more speed) and me laugh our heads off!😂 you’re awesome @howdy85 ! Thanks for inviting us over!!! We had a blast!! #countrylivin#makingmemories
Enjoyed serving a Southern lunch to these college students and wishing our newest friends from Brazil, Vitor and Jeni, safe travels home tomorrow. I’m so happy these were the first to be served on our (new to us) 100 year old farm table.
I made fried chicken, baked beans, BBQ pork, coleslaw, sweet potato casserole, pop brought his cornbread, strawberries(one healthy item), homemade banana pudding, chocolate cookies and rolls. Now we’re wrapping up an evening watching our wonderful friends and @lucieason04 at polocrosse. (Tommy got one of the horses that ran off😬) #makingmemories

Y’all ever hear of Taco Thursday? That’s what happens when you need to make up for missing “Taco Tuesday”! I dug out all of the Cinco decorations, picked up a few things from Walmart & BOOM! Perfect Taco Thursday! The kids were super excited & of course I was too! (because who doesn’t love tacos!?) #tacothursday#itsathingnow
You will never look back on life and think, "I spent too much time with my kid"
We had a super early dentist appointment today , Cavity Free again ❤️🦷 Sebastian has had all his teeth from an early age, and he has kept them strong and healthy 👌 We are just missing our 3year old molars 🦷
It's crazy to see how much he has grown from last year. He's growing up too fast like it's just not okay. Even the dentist assistant was like wow you are taller than my 3 yr old📏
We had a random library trip, and my bookworm of course loved it ! Our favorite library is being remolded for the next couple of months. So we have two more libraries to check out before we choose one to attend too📖
But nothing beats taking a walk in the rain 🌧️
Maybe next time we will wear better shoes than TOMS, haha does aren't great walking shoes 🚶♀️🚶
I had been wanting to do a comparison photo of Piper and Sawyer for so long. I think it’s amazing how twins can look so different and wanted to show how unique their eyes are from one another.
This photo didn’t turn out how I had envisioned but I think I like it better than my original idea. Ideally I would have had their eyes completely level, their faces completely on the same plain, and no breakfast left on their chins or chapped lips.
But In trying to capture their visual differences I think I more so ended up capturing their personality differences. When I look at this photo I can see Piper’s quiet, patient cooperation-waiting for Sawyer to follow suit. Her relaxed calm is completely juxtaposed to Sawyer’s tense fidgety impatience. You can see and feel the tension on his face at trying not to blink and trying to be still. He’s also trying to resist the urge to completely defy my instructions and run away.
Not what I envisioned and not perfect, but truly better than what I had planned anyways because it’s raw and real and it reminded me to always strive for that first and foremost, because when I look back on this photo diary of mine I don’t want to see perfect scripted moments (sleeping babies aside 😂). I want to see us as we were truly were.
