A lot of firsts

Happy Friday! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade watching, good food and fellowship, and were surrounded by those you love. 

Today Jack is 1 month old! Life around here can be described at any given time during the day (or night) as wonderful, chaotic, loud, joyful, sleepy, or smelly. Jack is a great baby and Caroline is adjusting well to being a big sister. Our house is full of baby gear and toddler toys galore, our car's backseat is full of carseats, our garbage can is full of dirty diapers, but our hearts are full of love for "our kids." It makes me smile every time I see those two little words next to each other and I thank my lucky stars every day that I get to be their Mommy.  

In the past month, we have experienced many firsts...

Jack's first Thanksgiving, 


my first time out of the house with both kids by myself, 

(We went to Target to buy one item that we were out of: DESITIN. This picture was taken while we were parked on the driveway!) 


Caroline's first haircut, first pigtails, and yes....first lollipop, 

(First haircut was traaaaaaaaumatic, first pigtails went unnoticed,

and first lollipop was ah-maaaaaazing)

kids' first (of many!) matching pajamas and coordinating outfits, 


Jack's first bath,



first Mommy/daughter outfit coordination!


Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
