Kayla Anderson  Wife, mom of 3, professional room temp coffee chugger, Oregon dweller, documenting our crazy, one photo at a time.


We haven't gone into depths about birth with Zeek, other than that he needed to be gentle with mom still because it had been painful to get Alder here. Tonight this thoughtful boy told me, "mom , that pain was a big sacrifice. It was a sacrifice to have that kind of pain FOUR times for our family to have kids, but now we all get to enjoy another baby for the rest of our lives!!" πŸ’—πŸ˜­ Yes son, and thank you. #youareworthit #thefirstandthelast #andersonboys

Silly realizations: folding laundry today and boom! All of the sudden there are 4 piles of little people clothes. πŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸ‘§πŸΌπŸ‘ΆπŸΌ

What constitutes a rough day in the life of a newborn? Peeing in your own dang mouth and eye. #bummerdude #tamethatbeast

Of all our little people, this dude is the one most built like his daddy. #plankfeetandchickenlegs #alderhawken

40 weeks today. Last night I was like, "oh hey Sky, do you think we should put that car seat in the car?" And he's all "yeah , cool." #maybetoorelaxedaboutfourthchild #wonderingwhatelseweareforgetting

Took this little girl for one more mommy-daughter date before she is no longer the baby of the family. Heard the baby's heartbeat at hopefully the last midwife appt this morning, to which all Elle could do was cover her ears and say "LOUD !" , and then walked across the way to the White Rabbit Bakery for some donuts. Now for some shopping in Portland to hopefully walk this sweet babe out! πŸ’— #girlsday #lovemydaughter

When your kids wake up and "technically& #34; it's 8:15, but you haven't changed the clocks yet so they still say 7:15 and you tell your kids it's too early to be awake and they need to go back to bed. #cheerstoyouDaylightSavings #winning

FINALLY got Little Missy set up with a big girl room so that we could steal her crib for the "nursery& #34; corner in our bedroom. πŸ™ˆ#justinthenickoftime #cuttingitclose #fourthchild

Found this sweet family photo in Zeek's school book. From left to right: Zeek (holding new baby A 😍), Ellery, Asher, Skyler and yours truly. #meltmyheart #AndersonPartyof6

I keep getting comments about how crazy hard life will be with 4 kids. While I don't doubt the crazy, I also know that these two dudes have really grown during my pregnancy to be incredibly helpful. Currently, they are working alongside me, each with his own tasks, to help me get food prepared and made to fill our freezer for when this new babe comes. They have wonderful servant hearts and continually ask me how they can help their mama. I am so proud of how my big boys are growing up, despite their mom and dad's downfalls and failures (which always seem ever more obvious while trying to raise them up). πŸ’™ #lovemyboys #freezermealsforthewin

37. Thirty. Seven. It's always about this point where it really starts dawning on me how close labor is. How soon our family dynamic will once again change forever. How soon I'll be holding a baby in my arms and not my waistline. And honestly, it's also about this time that I start to dread the process of getting this child out of my body. While I love having my children, I'm not one who particularly loves being pregnant or giving birth. So it's always about this time that I start dwelling on just how precious children are. How worth it this whole process is. How I can do anything for a few hours. How the intense pain is minor in comparison to the lifetime of joy that I will have with my children. I tell myself I can do it one more time. I can do it, I can do it, I can do it. πŸ’ͺ🏻 (And if I steal your newborn to snuggle in the next few weeks, just know I'm still in need of convincing. πŸ˜‰) #fourthchild #37weeks #babiesHAVEtocomeouteventually

Had to live-action capture this sweet thing rubbing and loving on her baby. I sure love her love. πŸ’— #lovemydaughter #elleryjune #baby4
