As this year is quickly coming to a close, I can’t help but reflect on everything God has blessed us with this year. Despite all the craziness going on the world I still feel gratitude, peace, and hope for what’s to come. We spent Thanksgiving weekend with both our families and it was wonderful. We’ve always been such a tight knit family but lately I’ve really been learning to value the treasure of togetherness even more and not take for granted every precious moment. I’m 16 weeks pregnant and there is so much anticipation and excitement in our house. We get to find out the gender in just a few days! Daniel is building an office in our backyard and soon we will be working on turning our current office in the house into Everly’s bedroom. We recently renovated our garage and turned it into a recreational space for our music. Daniel and I wrote a Christmas song and are releasing a single next week! We’re excited to start celebrating Christmas this year and can’t wait to pick out our tree with Everly. She’s been such a joy lately and it’s been so fascinating watching her learn and grow. She’s already learning her ABC’s, knows her colors, is a champion at puzzles, and absolutely loves music and dancing with her Dada. She will be 18 months on December 8th and I just can’t believe it! It’s going to be so amazing watching her be a big sister in May. Our hearts are full and so grateful!
On September 7th we found out that we are expecting another little miracle baby in May!Daniel and I just love being parents and are so excited that Everly is going to be a big sister. I think that the five years of infertility that we experienced before having Everly has really made us so much more aware of what a privilege and gift it is to be parents. Everly is such a treasure to us and we’re so excited to raise another little miracle! We couldn’t wait to tell our family and friends and immediately went online and bought a “big sister” shirt for Everly. We thought that would be a cute way to reveal our news to everybody. A couple days after my moms birthday we had some of my family gathered together and told my mom that we had another couple of gifts for her. Before we told her, we put Everly’s big sister shirt on with a sweater over the top. The first gift we gave her was a poem that we wrote from Everly to her Nana. On the last line of the poem it stated “for what lies ahead, it’s just getting better, the second gift for you is the shirt under my sweater.” Then she unbuttoned Everly’s sweater with the news! We told the rest of our family using the shirt too. It was so fun! 🥰 We loved going out to take these photos recently and couldn’t wait to share them with everybody. The photos of us were shot by my Daddy, Michael Kinney Photography. My mom came along too and helped to get all the cute smiles. We couldn’t be more excited to grow our family and can hardly wait to welcome our sweet baby in May!
