Welcome Stella | Born November 1, 2014 | 6.13lbs | 20″


I can’t even handle this. Please frame it and laugh forever over it. Perfect depiction of “Sorry bro, you’re not an only child anymore.” HA!

Practically speaking, I think your best bet is to get a timernal degree (that is the highest degree available for your chosen field) and become a college professor. You can still practice your photography and art. You will be surrounded with creative people hungry for information and a desire to express themselves, while having a steady income and medical benefits and pension plan. (I wish someone had given me this advice thirty years ago!) Whatever you choose, remember you will be working for the next blank amount of years, so do something that will feed your soul.

A beautiful Beginning: Beau Francis’ Birth Story.

Brenda and Jim couldn’t believe it when they heard the news they were having a little man! With 3 other big girls in the house, it was going to be an adjustment, but boy were they excited. Her birth seemed forever away and now his squishy self is here and healthy! It was a long and exhausting 48 hours for Brenda ending with a frustrating stuck posterior baby, the Dr just wanted him out. Though she did progress all the way to 9cm, with more than half of that med free, she was bummed but ready to meet him. She had her surgery and when everyone’s eyes bugged out, there was 9.6lbs dark haired baby Beau! What a sweetie he was, calm and alert for everyone. I’m so happy he waited for me to be in town to arrive! You guys are so blessed. Congrats to everyone!

PS. Can’t wait for our boys to hang out at yoga together. 😉 Love, Melanie

welcome Shepherd Ward {Just Born}.

Kacy is a BB repeat mama from 3yrs ago. I’ll never forget her (infamous) birth, as we were together for 36 hours with the poor gal spending that entire time unmedicated and then ending in a c section. GAH! This time Matt alerted me she was well into labor and contracting very close together. I likely wouldn’t have made the drive quick enough and very tired in the middle of the night so they asked to switch to a just born. It was so good to see them again and especially Scout, who is now a big boy! Baby bro is scrumptious and sweet as ever. You two make some very cute boys! Congrats!! Good luck with the transition to two!
