heart songs

One of the sweetest moments I’ve had as a mom has been watching my sister & her kids play with & care for mine. 

When I thought kids of my own were an impossible dream, I wanted so deeply (& maybe selfishly) for my sister understand how I felt about her kids and to have that same relationship. I love my neices to tons of pieces and I have really enjoyed watching them grow up, building our own little relationships, & spending major time with them. I love sneaking them cookies, buying them clothes, having them spend the night, and just being their auntie. 

And, that all began this past week. My sister’s family met the twins for the first time and it was such an amazing experience. The girls bonded immediately. The big cousins LOVING taking care of the little cousins. They were perfect little combinations of sweetness. Logan loved Aliya & they always ended up paired together. And, well….. Ari & Rhyann just kinda survived each other!! 

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from their visit!    




   Aliya is such a great mini photographer…. She caught Rhyann smiling!


Oh, my heart was so full!!!! I can’t wait for the big girls to come back this summer! My girls will be so “much” older and hopefully crawling around so they’ll be a lot more fun to play with. 

I thank God endlessly for my babies…. And, this is just another dream experience come true!!! 



  1. What a sweet post. I couldn’t help but smile looking at the pics.

  2. beautiful family!! i’ve been lurking your blog since you’ve been about 25ish weeks preggo… looking at all the pretty pics. i randomly found it one day. i’m sooooo glad i’ve found it! my husband and i have struggled with trying to have a baby for 2 years. i’ve ended up having 3 miscarriages in the span of 1.5 years. to make a long story short, we went to a specialist and found out i have low progesterone. so we tried one more time.. got a BFP and started the progesterone supplements. i’m currently 30 weeks pregnant with our rainbow baby- due in June! we love this little girl so much already!! thank you for sharing your story!! people think it’s so taboo to talk about issues with TTC.
