Lake Tahoe - What a gorgeous place! Didn't get around to posting this til a month later because we literally took a thousand photos and I still feel like I didn't really capture all the adventures we had.

This trip will always mean a lot to me, Sydney was about 5 weeks old at the time and I feel like this is when we all really bonded and started to figure out life together as a new family. I'll always cherish the memories of the joy on Noah's face when discovering the water for the first time and holding Sydney close in my wrap all day as we discovered a new place together. These days can be totally exhausting but I know I'm going to look back on them as of the happiest of times.

Happy Fathers Day

Thankful for Taylor this Father's Day, who is an amazing dad in more ways than I can put in words.   He's always making us laugh and remember that life is an adventure; making sure we prioritize each other and not get caught up in all the things that don't matter.

These days Noah is always by Taylor's side, wanting to do everything with him while they crack each up all day trying to outdo each other's antics and find ways to get into all sorts of trouble.  Can't wait for Sydney to get to know her dad more and more and watch their relationship unfold.  We're all so lucky to have him

Our first week back home from the hospital has been both easier and harder than I thought it would be. Easier time with the baby but harder time with my recovery than I was expecting.

Luckily my mom has been here with us cooking up delicious meals around the clock and lending an extra set of hands and has been an amazing help. Yesterday we cleaned up a corner of the living room while Taylor and Noah were on an outing to the zoo and suckered them into taking some family photos when they got home.

We let Noah hold Sydney by himself and all of a sudden he just got really quiet and his whole body language changed. He just seemed so proud to be holding his baby sister and intuitively knew it was something reeky special. Excited to see these two get to know each other more and more
