Last year on Oscars Sunday, I had strep throat and stayed home in bed while Brook took the girls to church. I watched Netflix in bed all day and slept and then curled up on the couch to watch the Oscars after the girls went to bed. At 9pm we got a text that Kendrick had just arrived. I'll never forget that feeling as we looked at the picture of our son who we hadn't yet met but would soon make our lives so much better. What a special week this will be getting to celebrate his first year. HOW DID IT GO SO FAST?! #sundayjamesgang #kendrickdjames

Today we had Kendrick & Kenzi's birthday parties (one plus of birthdays a week a part) and I kept looking around my packed house thinking "we've GOT to get a bigger house". But now as I flip through pictures I'm just so grateful. Grateful for a packed, tiny house that we get to love our people in. Thankful that in less than 2 years we've met these people who are like family to us. And the 23 kids never complained once about the things I spend my time worrying about. Let this be a lesson to me and you to always open our hearts and our doors no matter what they may look like.

Pure joy when you put a ball in his hands βš½οΈπŸ€πŸˆ #kendrickdjames

Princess/Superhero Party! Happy 4th and 1st Kenzi & Kendrick πŸ’™πŸ’–

Birthday party day! I can't believe we are already celebrating a year with this boy!!! He has forever changed us πŸ’™ #kendrickdjames

Oh man, it's getting crazy around here. Welcome to toddlerhood 😳 I had forgotten how insane it is and this boy is a million times worse than the girls were. I caught him by the leg at the last second as he flung himself off the back of the couch today and apparently he can open doors now too. Send help. πŸ˜­β˜•οΈ #kendrickdjames

Cutest little errand buddy 😍 I want a stroller that someone will push me around in while I people watch. ☺️
He turns one in a week and he's been growing like crazy. AND his hair is finally starting to grow back in (he has alopecia) so I'm hoping we have some curls by summer πŸ‘πŸΌ #kendrickdjames
