K E L L Y D A V I S  veteran wife ☾ { II.XVII } ↠ boy mama { twins + 2 } ↠ blended family ↠ blogger || ↟ft. worth, texas 💌: kellyandthemisterblog@live.com

We’ve been having the laziest Monday in the Davis home, since this mama is fighting off a nasty cough. But the job of a mama never ends just because she’s sick {true story}. So I’m keeping up with entertaining them + of course, feeding them. It’s so important to me that my family is putting clean + healthy foods into their growing little bodies. Which is where @lesserevilsnacks come in! These boys LOVE popcorn + chips, just like their mama. But those snacks typically have horrible ingredients + fake foods in them, so we try to steer clear as best as we can {though sometimes, we indulge because that’s life}. With Lesser Evil we don’t have to worry about any of that, because their products focus on real, organic ingredients + that makes this house of foodies + our Buddha bellies very happy. So happy, that we might have gobbled up this bag in one sitting. 💛 #lesserevillove #ingredientsmeaneverything #lesserevil #sponsored #ad

Today I went in for a consultation with my doctor to explore further what has been going on with my fertility, hopeful that when I left we’d have a plan for when he comes home in April to finally get us pregnant. Andrew + I have been trying so hard to make the dreams of us sharing a child with one another come true for the past six months + each trip home ends with another negative pregancy test + a lot of heartache on both ends. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was scared walking into that office today. With PCOS you never know what you’re going to be up against. This path is all too familiar for me… I journeyed down it when I had the twins + now here I am once again. The differences this time are that I have an AMAZING man standing by my side, holding me up when I feel like falling… I have a HOPE deeply rooted in Christ, that these dreams will be fulfilled in His perfect time, not ours… And I have PROOF, in Liam + Noah, that with Him {+ a little help from modern medicine}, all things are possible. When we wait for things we long for with all of our being, it seems like we cannot wait another second for it. I’ve had my fair share of being in seasons of waiting, especially in this past year. I pass each deployment in the waiting for my husband to return. We spend his days home together in the waiting, hoping that this time there will be two pink lines instead of just one. You cannot possibly begin to imagine what infertility does to you unless you are a woman who has been through it, or are a man with a spouse you’ve had to helplessly watch endure so much let-down + heartache. Time + waiting have become how my life has been measured lately. But I know God has a plan + a purpose for us. That there will be a day when we forget the painful waiting we endured + we are holding our baby for the first time. I’ll look at them + say, “You were worth all of the waiting. Every single moment of heartache, worry + longing.” When that time comes… the time that has been decided by God + not by us, it will truly be more special than ANYTHING I can even begin to imagine. And for that reason, I am choosing to dwell in hope. To wait for His perfect timing. 💛 (cont. in comments)

I’m missing these two so much. When their daddy is deployed, I try my very best to continue to get them every other weekend during our visitation, so I can still grow the bond I have with my sweet bonus sons + so the twins can have big brothers actively in their lives to look up to. Often times life just gets in the way + other plans are made for them that cause me to miss out on time with them even when I want it. And rarely, but sometimes, after a long, exhausting week with the twins, my mama heart gets overwhelmed at the idea of juggling 4 young + wild boys for the weekend by myself + it’s too much for me to handle, if I’m being completely honest, + so my time with them doesn’t happen. It’s a constant tug + pull between normalcy + figuring out where I fit in all of this. Being a bonus mama is HARD sometimes. But these two... they have captured my heart from the start. They filled two spots there, Cooper + Carson shaped, that I was never aware existed until they came into my life. They are the greatest blessing + the sweetest kids. It’s an honor to love them + parent them alongside their daddy. My heart is hopeful I will get to spend time with them this weekend. To stay up late playing board games, give them countless piggy back rides, make my famous Mac-n-Cheese + split my time at bedtime cuddling in each of their beds + saying our prayers, because that’s always what they ask of Mama Kelly when they come stay with me. After these weekends, I admit that I am completely drained... but I love every single exhausting + wild minute of it. 💙

A year ago today, I stood before this man, in the same state park where he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife, and I gave my life and my heart to him forevermore. If you had told me years ago that this is where I would be at in life… that I would find a love that was unlike any other love I’ve ever read about or seen in all those romantic movies, I wouldn’t have believed you. It is a love that I thought only existed in made up stories like that… and yet, now we are living our own. And it’s the realest thing I’ve ever known. This first year of marriage had its challenges, with us being separated by 7,667 miles and 10.5 hours of time difference for 10 of the 12 months that made up this year. But instead of that tearing us apart, or adding to the stresses that come with adjusting to the “hard” first year of marriage, we grew closer. I fall more and more in love with him every single day. I choose him every single day and he chooses me. And that is what sets us apart. I am beyond blessed to be married to such a handsome, hardworking and selfless man. A man who chose me and the twins wholeheartedly. A man who pursued me from the very beginning of us meeting two years ago and who has never stopped, even though he’s already gotten the girl. I am so excited to see where this beautiful life takes us… How deeply our love will grow in the next 50+ years together. This day will forever go down as the best day of my entire life. The day I became his, officially. @andy_d_yo … I love you 365x more today than I loved you then, and I’ll love you even more tomorrow still. Thank you for choosing me to be your bride. I promise you now what I promised you last year in our vows, and will continue to honor you with everything that I am all the days of my life. I wish more than anything we could be together to celebrate our first anniversary. But my heart smiles knowing that we’ve got a lifetime more of them to make up for it. I cannot wait to see what this next year of marriage holds for us… hopefully that’ll include the sweet baby we are praying so hard for. I love you to our moon and back while holding hands. XO, Your Forever Mrs. Davis

Back in my happy place, with these two. 💙 Excited to cuddle up with them + a warm bowl of chili to watch the game + the dreaded episode of This Is Us {cue all the tears 😭}.

Spending my Saturday morning in the quiet. The twins are off at their dads, my bonus sons are at their mama’s + Andrew is away on his deployment, so there is no need for the daily hustle + bustle of being a mama today. I’m not being pulled a million different directions. There aren’t Cheerios spilled on my floor or boo boos I have to kiss. It feels strange, almost. I’m so wired to being a mama that when I have time to just be Kelly again I don’t know what to do with myself. I’m going to try to make the most of this time of rest, before things in the Davis household get back to their wild selves. Raising boys is no easy task... but goodness do I love it. Happy Saturday, friends. Hold those babies tight. 💙

These two + their bond... it truly melts my heart. There is nothing like the love + friendship twins have for one another. It’s truly a built in best friend + I am honored every day to get to witness their love for one another. 💛 These two didn’t hesitate to ham it up for me when I took my new camera out to play. Moments like this are exactly why I got into photography in the first place. To capture moments of my children I want to remember forever. My heart is so full today. • #ontheblog

I snuck upstairs to spy on these two crazy boys + the shenanigans they were getting into. They said were pretending to be firemen + had fires to put out. Their imaginations make my heart smile. I missed having them around this weekend. I don’t think I’ll ever fully get used to the times they go off to their dad + bonus mama’s house. The house is quiet + I feel like I lose my sense of who I am, because I was made to be a mama. True, I get a moment to breathe + recharge + be Kelly again with friends... but being a mama is where my heart is. Being a mama to these two boys + my bonus sons is the best gig in the entire world. Excited to see who else is destined to join + complete our Davis clan, hopefully this year. 💙

Deployments are so hard. They never get easier no matter how many you end up tucking under your belt. You will never get used to seeing your spouse walking away, you will never get used to those lonely nights + having to be both mom + dad to your kids. You will never get used to that last kiss, that last hug, that last goodbye. Your tears will always come, the first day will always be hard + you will always wish they didn’t have to go. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Before Andrew left for this new deployment, he surprised me with a moon necklace, because our thing is to always say “to the moon + back” to one another. He also left notes scattered all over the house for me to find, for him to appear in my day out of the blue even when we’re miles apart. The gestures made the sting of goodbye just a little sweeter, because even though he’s back in Afghanistan, I can be reminded that his love is all around me still. I’m thankful to have a man who never stops pursuing my heart, despite the 7,667 miles that separate us. And it is because we never stop trying that I know we are deployment strong. That we will survive this season of life one day at a time + before I know it, I’ll be back in his arms + we will both be home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ {More deployment thoughts #ontheblog - link in profile}. Speaking of... does anyone have a blog I can follow along + read? I’ve revamped mine to help pass the time while he’s away + will be posting in it regularly again. I’d love to connect with others as well! Xx #veteranwifelife #proudveteranwife

I went on a hiatus for the holidays while my husband came home from his second deployment to Afghanistan. It was the most magical + memorable time with him that I could have asked for. We went on our honeymoon, celebrated Christmas in our new house, kissed in the new year, celebrated our 1 year anniversary that’s quickly coming up next month + spent nights dancing in our kitchen. This trip went entirely too fast. Today we said goodbye for the third time. My heart is aching + I’m counting down the moments until we are reunited again. 💛

Our Christmas cards have officially been sent out! We ordered from @artifactuprising this year + I am thrilled with how beautifully they turned out. I think, even though it’ll be our first Christmas together without the kiddos, it’s still going to be a magical time of the year because I’ll finally be back with my husband + we will be celebrating in our new home. ❤️

Such a cozy little view. Cannot wait for the hubby to be home in three weeks so we can work on a few couples projects around the house, like German smearing the fireplace + whitewashing the coffee table. We’ve got a few DIY projects up our sleeves I’m excited to get to share. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. 💛
