I want these moments to freeze. To keep them little just a while longer, but time moves on. Things keep changing and they keep growing. It is sweet and sad because they will never be the teeny babies they once were, but we're full of excitement as they continue to grow into themselves. I think I am especially feeling this time much more because, as far as our plans, we are done with four. I try to cuddle Glow longer, hug her tighter because she will be the last of babies in this house. 

Soul's funny. She is finally starting to use sentences, but she sounds like a little ewok and she is getting sneakier. We catch her playing with the water and soap, which she tried to eat but then said it was spicy, and coloring on the walls. She's got one feisty temper and she always dresses herself in the morning. Lately, this dress has been her fave. She is always wearing it (see here). 

Glow is sweetness. That's all I can say to sum her up. There is no mischief coming out of her yet, but it will come. It always does. 

I really like having little ones in my house.

disclaimer: they drive me crazy too! 


  1. awww. Soul is such a darling! It's good to finally see more of her personality. Glow is on her way to that stage too.

    I would love to freeze them just as they are too.

  2. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTE! I love the crying picture. So sad and hilarious and adorable all at the same time! I remember so well how my daughter could go from Happy to Sad in the blink of an eye....:)

  3. My Flynn has been mischief from the get-go, but oh, I know this feeling! With each passing year she gets sweeter (at least so far ;) but I mourn the speedy departure of the previous year and all the wonders it held. Why does it have to move so fast? Can't we linger!

    Love how you've captured the moments.

  4. your girls are so sweet! my girl just turned 9 months. time has flown, but at the same time i feel like i've done a decent job of soaking in all the sweet newborn/baby days.

  5. Can you keep Glow this size until I see her next? I haven't even held her yet :( They all have such different looks. I can see different features in each of them that remind me of when the biggins' were littlins' but yet they all still have their own look. Beautiful little women :)

    1. i miss you guys!!! when are you coming back for a visit?!! oh my gosh we are doing house renovating stuff here and this stuff is so hard and never as easy as it sounds!!! but you have to come over when it is done!!!!

  6. i love reading posts about Soul! she seems to be alot of different personalities all rolled into one! and different from your older girls, but still close to them too.

    and oh my Glow is absolutely adorable in that last pic! how can you stand it? i dont know how youd go a minute without squeezing those cheeks of hers!


  7. Love your blog, love your style, love your budget! We have verrrry similar tastes! Just opened an etsy shop for vintage, traditional children's clothing.. take a look!

    Really love this blog! keep doing what you're doing!

  8. it goes so fast doesn't it?!?!?! i think glow is so cute!!! she always has the same look on her face! id love to see a big ole gummy grin!!!

  9. Sometimes when mine start driving me crazy and it's hard to "laugh at the days to come", I just have to remind myself that "they will never be the teeny babies they once were", like you said. And then I don't mind the chaotic moments so much :) And I agree, her dress is so cute!

  10. I love seeing new pictures on instagram. I actually showed them to my hubby the other day. He agrees they are super cute.

    Oh time just flies. I hope you snuggle with them as much as you can. :)
