She and I write back and forth to each other in an awesome mom/daughter journal. One of the writing prompts on my side was what did I expect mothering a daughter would be like and what about it has surprised me? The answer to the first part of that question is this: long, chatty lunches in the pinkest restaurants in town πŸ˜†πŸ’•. The answer to the rest of that question is literally everything else. Everything about mothering this sweet gal has surprised me. #surprisedbymotherhood

18 month olds have got to be the single most exhausting and simultaneously cute creatures on all of planet earth. Why ya gotta run me ragged, bruh? #amitoooldforthis #noreally #goodthinghescute πŸ˜‡

The really fascinating thing about 3 year olds is that they can detect how much of a hurry you’re in and then slow down their pace accordingly 😝🐌🐒

His sick day request is that we climb back into bed for snuggles and I’m like πŸ’―% yes. #mybestyesforsure #hesmysnuggler

Deep in thought this morning πŸ˜†πŸ™ˆ

18 months old and so full of spice. This guy doesn’t let his 3rd-born voice go unheard. He loves pointing out all the things and saying β€œwhat’s that?” over and over. He loves to eat and only recently began to protest some offerings (lima beans and tomatoes are hard no’s for him). He’s in the 97th% for size and is, as @morgensternjc puts it, a solid chocolate bunny πŸ˜‚. Gosh, we love this feisty chunk πŸ˜πŸ˜‡.

Spent several days with this crew at #pinecovebluffs to ring in 2019. Thankful for a new year and new adventures together ❀️#familycamp

Merry Christmas from our crazy little crew β€οΈπŸŽ„β€οΈ

Loved our annual ice skating day with the cousins. Loved it even more because we avoided the mall and stuck with our local rink πŸ™ŒπŸΌ #nocrowds #nohustleorbustle #manypraisehands. Surprise of the day was how much Charlie loved ice skating β›Έ

I always enjoy taking the kids to Granbury to see the Living Christmas Cards. Their favorite part was watching my mom sing in one of the cards...and spending time with their cousins. #christmastraditions #mostwonderfultimeoftheyear ❀️✨🌲

Matching Christmas jammies, alllll December long πŸ’šπŸŽ…πŸΌπŸŽ„β€οΈ #cantstopwontstop #itsthemostwonderfultimeoftheyear

Sweet moment, yes, but in the spirit of full disclosure, you should know that Charlie is only hugging Shep to apologize for throwing a toy at his head 30 seconds earlier πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ#brothers #whyaretheyalwaysthrowingthings
