Lately. . .

AKA . . . Photo dump from Insta. You’ve been warned

It’s been a busy couple of months, and I haven’t had time to write about all that we’ve been up to. So, here are a few a lot of my favorite pics for documentation.

In January, we went to Gatlinburg for a weekend with our nearest and dearest friends. It was a good time. Lots of laughing and eating and relaxing with people we love. We decided that we’ll leave the kids with grandparents next time, though!

Mr. Boy continues to bring us so much joy {and exhaustion :)} as he grows and plays and explores his little world. He’s a mess. . . and a lot of fun.

I was surprised by a 4D ultrasound view of our little John Wicks at my last appointment. I was measuring small {how this is possible, I’m not sure, because I’ve been feeling bigger than Dallas}, so they sent me to ultrasound just to make sure everything looked ok. Apparently, they had just gotten a new 4D machine, so the tech was “testing it out” while she checked little JW. I was shocked when such a clear image of his precious little face popped up on the screen. And, praise the Lord, he is just the right size.

IMG_4115My precious friends hosted the cutest little “sprinkle” for me and JW. I only took a few pics on my phone, but you can read about it and see some better pics over at Christy’s blog.IMG_4047

Perfect hostess gift! They knew I'd had my eye on these.

We pretty much had a complete girls’ day. Mom, the best girls, and I all went out to eat at Cafe Lou Lou and then had a date to the Pie Kitchen after the Sprinkle. Such a fun time. Chritty and I were already getting emotional, knowing it would be one of our last girl days together in Lou. Sometimes we like to speak in hash tags when we text each other. I realize this is strange, but I love our crazy relationship. #sodontjudge.

IMG_4140Over the past few months, we’ve spent some time in Hartselle for formal interviews, seeing the town and church, etc. We were hosted by the most gracious, generous family both times we visited. They surely helped make our weekends more enjoyable and less stressful.

So, there’s the picture version of the last few months. It’s been busy but fun.

If we cross your mind, pray for us this week. We will be saying goodbye to friends we love and transitioning to a new place and phase of life. Transition is always a little challenging, but even more so with a busy toddler and and an increasingly heavy belly :). We certainly covet your prayers.
