Last Tuesday little Rad turned one month. 

I feel like I should insert some cricket sounds here, because I'm in a little bit of shock at how fast the time is flying. 

Sometimes the days are long, but the weeks are flying by.

Because of the extreme post-partum depression I experienced with Rhett, I never experienced the joy of having a newborn till now. 

And oh the joy of having a little fuzzy head snuggled on your shoulder. 

And the satisfied little grunts during a 2AM feeding session. 

And the started flinging of the arms when you kiss their soft cheeks. 

And the satisfaction of taking a warm bath with a little one curled up on your chest. 

And when they stare off into space and give a little mysterious they know a  wonderful secret. 

I don't know if we'll have more kids. 

We feel so blessed to have 2 little boys and our family feels complete; so if there is a chance that this will be our last little one we feel especially compelled to cherish every minute. 

We've been making it a point to "unplug" a little bit, to spend less time online, on Facebook, Instagram etc and more quality time as a family. 

So with that said, I'm going to be taking a few more weeks off from blogging and during that time I'm going to be doing some revamping of the blog.

The past month I've been journaling about our days and the moments (both good and...tiring :)) and I've realized how much I've missed writing about our family. 

I kept a family blog for the first 3 years of our marriage and I want to get back into that.

I think we all believe that the best blogs are those where the writer is passionate about what they post, and right now I feel passionate about our family. 

I still will post the projects we're doing and have done with our home, like Rad's nursery and Rhett's new big boy room etc, but I really want to make sure we have the small moments of our life documented as well. 

I don't expect to you all to continue to follow along. 

I know there are a bazillion "mom" blogs out there, but I want to sincerely thank YOU for following along over the past year and a half. 


And now I'm going to go change the 62nd poopy diaper of the day. 

At the least the little guy who has a stinky bum has the cutest little dimples on his cheeks. :)

See you again in 2 weeks!

I will always follow your blog. Think you are awesome!!
