Baby...Your Mama can't wait to meet you.

"I will always be your mom. No matter where you go or how big you grow, that will never change."  

Our baby will be 40 weeks in only 3 days.... Feeling good, getting so excited, enjoying all the hiccups, kicks and movements. We are waiting for you baby... 

Our little man gets to join us at every doctor appointment for this baby, while the girls are at school.

Isaiah 43:1, “He who formed you, I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.'”

Easter 2017

Two weeks before Easter our family tradition is to do "resurrection eggs". Each night, the kids find an egg hidden around the house. Their excitement for this moment is incredible, like it's an amazing treasure to be found. Inside the egg are small trinkets that represent Jesus and his journey through the days and weeks leading up to his resurrection. A donkey, a rock, a nail, a piece of cloth, etc. We sit together before we tuck them into bed and read about each step Jesus took for his amazing gift and what he did for us. Every year, reading to my children makes me feel so grateful for salvation, what God planned for each one of us, and Jesus' love for us. We had a wonderful time celebrating Easter with family this year. The day before Easter, we joined the San Diego Firefighters egg hunt in Mission Bay with all of the cousins. The day was absolutely beautiful by the water, where the kids had fun hunting for eggs, playing with one another, and enjoying all the festivities that were offered. Thank you, my two brothers! We hope we get to do this every year with them now. On Easter Day we spent time with family and enjoyed all of the celebration. As the kids get older, it's amazing to see them understand what each holiday is celebrated for. Easter Sunday and the Spring season always reminds me that we are saved -He is risen and alive!

38 Weeks -

Our Baby - We love you, pray for you, talk about you, and we can't wait to meet you...
We are counting down the days....38 Weeks

Jason and I went on a one-night stay at the Hyatt San Diego and we had the most incredible time. Spending 24 hours together where we got to have long conversations, eat delicious food, walk the boardwalk, take in our stunning view from our room, and enjoy the most beautiful sunny weather. 

We are so very thankful to my parents for watching our 3 kids while we were off on a retreat before our baby number four enters our world. 

Me and My Baby...

A beautiful sunny evening, a gorgeous view, a mama with a round baby bump, a dark bathing-suit under a navy lace dress and a sister who is a talented photographer...perfect photos were captured for baby #4.
