AUGUST HIGHLIGHT REEL:
1 | Eulalie turned one month old on August 10th...fastest month ever.
2 | Brad turned 29 on August 19th. He was working the entire b-day weekend, but we surprised him at work with handmade cards and birthday cake (that Pier helped mama bake!)
3 | Brad and I got to go on not one, but TWO dates this month thanks to the grandparents
4 | My in-laws came to visit Indiana to meet their newest grandchild
5 | We survived our first family of four road trip to Louisiana (!!!)
6 | We checked off the Indiana State Fair off of our Midwest bucket list. Pier rode a pretend Lil Sebastian and wasn't excited about it (but mama loved it because, memories. And what kid doesn't want to ride a pony?)
7 | Brad started interviewing for post-residency jobs in Louisiana (surreal!!!)
8 | Eulalie started giving us big smiles and laughs in her sleep.
9 | We took the kids to their first baseball game and Pier LOVED it.
10 | Gertie still isn't used to being outnumbered by tiny people, but I know she'll eventually love Eulalie as much as she loves Pier (...lol...)
11 | I took a social media and (unintended) blogging break. I felt like I needed to refocus and refresh and I think it's going to be a regular thing! It helped me prioritize the important things...prayer, playing with my kids, and being faithful to my household responsibilities. I highly recommend fasting from technology every now and then!
