Olive {4 months}

Four months seemed to be a big flash back to Olive being a newborn. We hit what is known 4 month sleep regression early and it lasted a good 5 weeks. (What that is for all you non parents is a time in the babies life where they are learning a lot at once and cannot turn their little minds off, think of the night before a big test, or big interview or even your wedding day, your mind just wouldn’t stop.) So, of course, that has meant no sleep for Josh and I, but we’ve survived barely…haha. The great thing though of this is that Olive learned to roll over both ways, is now holding things well, can transfer objects from one hand to another and learned to roll/squirm places!

She still has stranger danger and cries with almost everyone, even if she’s meet them or seen them a lot before..yes even grandparents. Although my mom is the only exception, she probably sounds and looks enough like me  that it isn’t so scary and unfamiliar to Olive.

She LOVES smiling at me and Josh. Because of the no sleeping thing we end up co sleeping all night, and even though it is hard it is so sweet to wake up to her little curious mind touching our faces and smiling at the sight of both of us. I adore watching her wake up next to her daddy and give him the biggest grin even when he is half awake himself. It is so sweet!

Olive still loves bath time and loves when I sing silly songs to her. Because I have a crummy memory and the lack of sleep we end up making up our own words to common tunes…but she doesn’t care. 😉

She loves watching her puppy, Toby. He is so sweet with her, which we are SO thankful for. Many times I will have to remove her death gripping hands from his fluffy fur. He will always sit there with his ears tucked back licking her hoping I’ll come rescue him soon.

I adore being a mother, but it is still so so hard. I  miss her every time I’m out shooting and see another baby her age and just want to come home quickly to her and snuggle her little cubby rolls. Some days I cannot wait for her to get older to have dance parties in our living room or play in the kitchen baking with me, but then I see big kid clothes and don’t want her to grow one more inch. haha

Even though we have our very hard days were I have to put her down and go scream into a pillow in the other room, I cannot stop praising God that He has entrusted us with this sweet little girl. We love you Olive Mae.

Peonies in the Foundations {Hope in the Midst of a Dark Season | Emmy’s Personal Story with Chronic Illnesses}

The tulips didn’t bloom that year. It was the first year they hadn’t bloomed in the 3 years we had lived in our house. It was also the first year I started to get really sick. 

.

That same year in literal crack of the foundation of our home and the rocks a new plant started to grow.

.

I knew this plant was a sign of hope from God.

.

God’s provisions aren’t always easy, nor are they simple, it almost always makes absolutely no sense, but it is always beautiful and good.

This has been absolutely true for our life today. Click to read more.
