Linda Lotich  Lattes and sunsets and flowers and autumn leaves. The little things make me happy.

Got our first batch of peaches from the famous @thepeachtruck and made about 100 jars of jam. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
If you're nice, we might share.


Our to-do list is a mile long. But today, we opted to go to the zoo and a carnival with friends. We'll pay for it tomorrow, but it was totally worth it. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ #goals

Only place she wants to sleep.

You guys are awesome!
My post earlier today was meant to be a humerus reality check of the wild adventure we've been through. But man, you all offered help, advice, to bring meals, and just genuine love.

I am blown away. I feel the love. ❀️ And might I say, I want more advice! Ha ha! We are sort of starting from scratch, so tell me what your must have items are.πŸ‘πŸΌ

Behind the scenes over here we are struggling to catch up to the few months of preparation we thought we would have for her.
Things I wish I would have done:
1: Get Alden more self sufficient
2: Get him in a big boy bed
3: Have a place to put new baby's stuff
4: Get my toes done. πŸ˜‚
5: Research car seat/stroller options
6: Buy a bassinet or swing or some place to lay sweet baby in the common area. 😬 Don't worry, I check on her every 30 seconds.

Life is messy right now. But so, so sweet. πŸŽ€

There will be no glamorous photo shoot, heck, I'll be lucky if I get a shower! But I am so incredibly happy to have these two humans entrusted to me. πŸ’™πŸ’– Just read @joannagaines post about motherhood and cried for about the 4th time this morning. πŸ˜‚ Motherhood is hard and rewarding and wonderful and complicated and the best thing ever.


"She's perfect" are the best words your pediatrician can tell you. πŸ’˜

Nap time. πŸ’—

The feeling is mutual, Valerie. The feeling is mutual.

It's a girl! πŸ’˜πŸŽ€πŸ’
Wednesday morning we got "the call" we had been waiting for. That we were matched.
Then they told us, she was born Tuesday night!!!!!
So in two short hours, we packed everything we could think of for a 2 week stay out of town and headed on a 4-hour road trip to meet our little Valerie Rose.
Our brains may be mush (having a surprise newborn is a lot of work! πŸ˜‚), but our hearts are bursting with joy and love and all the good feels.
So happy to be a family of 4.

Not happy to leave these two. πŸ’”
