Is anyone out there?


Maybe, maybe not. Either way, I just needed to put something out there because I just happened to check my lifeless blog tonight & realized that my last post was in January. January.

There are no promises to post more because I know how that turns out. It is such a beautiful thing to have this little piece of the internet that is mine. This bold, visual journal of bits & pieces of our lives. I wish I blogged more.

& Unlike this forgotten url, our lives have been the opposite of untouched. Since January, Chris & I celebrated five years, can you believe it? It feels like yesterday & yet, it feels like a lifetime. Every year just proves that I married up when I married that man. Penny has gone from tiny newborn to a couple months away from her first birthday. She is crawling, pulling herself up & has finally gotten that attitude that all the women of this house get, bahaha. She is incredible, I don't remember how we managed without her! Audrey, ohh Audrey is hilarious. There is never a dull moment with her. She is so smart, so funny, so emotional, so talkative, so silly - she will make for a fun teenager someday. I just love our girls & want more!

We also went to New York, Audrey was in her first wedding, we went to Disneyland (a few times), we got involved, we met new people, we made new friends, we made big transitions, we celebrated milestones & each other. We have been so busy & God has been so good to us.

Someone really loves her little sister.




If you're around them for at least a few minutes, the love that Audrey has for Penny is obvious. Who knew that the littlest big sisters could be so great at it, even at two-years-old?


Love,

Oh, am I a little late on these?




Umm, so I guess I am about three months behind on my Audrey updates. I am going to play the newborn card, although Penny is only two months old so I guess I am going to play my I-was-really-pregnant-then card too. ;)

I am not even going to try to remember what Audrey was doing during those different months, but I can tell you what she is up to now & has been learning along the way.

Audrey Love, at twenty-two months:

+ sings the alphabet song, doubling a few letters
+ loves loves loves her baby sister
+ has been introduced to Disney princess & she loves them

What a sweet sweet girl our Audrey is turning out to be.

Love,
Sarah Joy

One! || Penelope Bliss



Here starts Penny's monthly photos! I made big sister these monthly felt numbers and it was very surreal putting this number one on Penny this past November 7th (her exact one month birthday).

At one month old, Penelope:

+ has become a great nurser
+ besides her feedings, slept through most of the night
+ experienced her first trip to Disneyland & slept through most of it
+ loves the baby carrier and carseat
+ really likes her pacifier (different from big sister Audrey)



She does have her moments now and then, but overall, Penny is a happy baby and we love her to the moon and back and more.

Love,
Sarah Joy

Penny & Audge.



Life with two littles has been so much fun and equally as tiring, even with Chris on paternity leave (such an incredible blessing!), but I think we are all adjusting really well as a family of four. Lots of family time, little trips and figuring out  It feels like yesterday that I was waddling around pregnant & now here we are with a beautiful little two month old!

I still cannot believe that we have two precious girls and that I get to be their mama. They are my blessings, my little miracles.
