One Prickly Pair: Twins First Birthday

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Happy birthday to my little miracle babies! Half of me can believe they are one because OY those first six months crawled by but the other half is like what?! because the second six months flew by!

We had the best time partying with our Prickly "Pair." We're so thankful for the friends and family who celebrated our IVF miracles with us. I said it at their party (through ugly tears) but I never thought we would be here. We are overwhelmed and humbled by the Lord's grace and I don't think I'll ever remember His goodness without getting emotional. He has been so incredibly faithful to me even when I struggled with trusting Him.

Also a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported us during their first year of life. So many of you have been praying for them since they were embryos and it blows my mind. We are humbled by all the love. You have texted, dropped by to check in, brought meals/coffee/groceries, held babies, changed diapers, washed dishes, done laundry, and kept me emotionally stable. We could NOT have done this without all our wonderful family, friends, and IG community. It takes a village!

The Pendry San Diego

Monday, August 7, 2017

We packed our bags and headed to San Diego for a night and left the babies behind for the first time. Cal was easy-peasy and Evie was, well, she was spicy. We call her spicy alter-ego, "Evie G." ;) Luckily she wasn't fussy enough for our sitter to never watch them again so I'm calling it a win! 

We stayed at the Pendry and absolutely loved it! 

We had a great time eating delicious food, feeling the ocean breeze in our hair, and relaxing by the pool. There was no shortage of people watching which kept us quite entertained as well. I highly recommend the Pendry and I'll be going there again for sure!

On my last post I picked out some of my favorite backpacks for the little ladies but let's not forget about the gentlemen!

Which style do you love?

Backpack Roundup for Girls

Monday, July 31, 2017

School is right around the corner and what better distraction than picking out your kids' backpacks? I found some of the cutest darn backpacks for girls (don't worry boys will be next!) and clearly this year it's all about unicorns and kitties. Take a look!

Comment below if you are wanting to know where a particular backpack is from!

Lark Adventurewear

Thursday, July 27, 2017

People always ask me, "Who's the playful one?" or "Who's the sensitive one?" Well Everly is the sweaty one. The back of her head is always wet! Lark Adventurewear keeps babies cool while baby-wearing or in strollers or car seats (Everly's specialty).

Also I've been "reading" this book since December. (doh!)

These natural, onesies from Lark Adventurewear are awesome because they wick away moisture even on the hottest southern California days! They are eco-friendly and perfect for babies with sensitive skin because they are made without chemicals or synthetic fabrics. I love that they are made in the USA as well!

A Day in the Life

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

I love documenting the simple every day activities that the kids do. Don't get me wrong I enjoy a good styled shoot too but I think it's good to balance both! The other day while Cal was still snoozing Blair and Evie were busy cookin' up something for dinner.

And as you can tell Blair was in charge...

Playing nice for the camera (insert eye roll)

Her face is grumpy but her hair is on point!
Happy Wednesday!
