as of late

Oh my goodness time is flying by at a heartbreaking rate.  This week my baby will be an entire month old! Seriously, where does the time go when you have a new baby?  I am trying to get in the habit of blogging again, but I’m still really trying to get the hang of having 3 kids.  I love having a new baby in the house, but there’s not much time for anything else I have remembered.  Today I’ll show you bits and pieces of what life is looking like for us as of late.

 1. Reason 382 of why I don’t mind kids getting into my bed in the middle of the night, waking up to this…


2. I cannot seem to drag myself out of bed in the mornings, but here’s a pretty good indication of why:

exhibit A: 

Exhibit B:

3. When I do get out and about, it’s usually interrupted by Miss Grae needing to eat 5 times.  So our errands look mostly like this:

 4. Easter is still my favorite holiday and it seems to just keep getting better.

5. I wish I was as happy everyday as Stella was the day she got her face painted at the Art’s festival.



6. Holding a newborn will take away every worry in the world, pinky promise!

7. Almost nothing feels better than rocking my babe on our front porch while my big girls run around giggling and stealing smooches every few minutes before daddy gets home from work.

the first smile

 A lot of things happened this week, but for me, this week will go down as the week my baby smiled for the first time. (And I miraculously got it on camera.)

I mean.. isn’t she just precious?

the first week

I can’t believe we have been in our house 2 weeks and already so much has happened.  My head is overwhelmed and my heart is literally oozing over (in the form of teary hormonal late nights and big milky boobs).

I am going to break down the posts because there is so much I have to say about it all.  New house! New baby! Labor! Getting settled! Jaundice! Doctors vs. Midwives! Oh my! But until I can get my head to wrap around all that’s happened enough to put into words, I am going to give you a sneak peek at the first week in our new house, and quite possibly the best week of my entire life.

We ended the week spending the day snuggled in bed as a family of 5.

Now that baby of mine is hungry (as always) and my life as a mom of 3 with no help officially starts today (pray for me!), so I must be off, but I’ll be back with details soon. :)

Welcome to the world, Grae!

Well if you haven’t heard already, we welcomed our newest little lady into the world last Wednesday.  She is as perfect as I’ve ever seen and we are all completely head-over-heels for her.

Grae Golden Miller
6 lbs 6 oz 19 1/2 inches long
born March 26th at 4:58 am

We’ve had a whirlwind of a week with recovering from our exciting night of welcoming her, jaundice, milk coming in and all the other good stuff a newborn brings.  Grae and I had a wonderful birth and as soon as I can wrap my head around what I’ve just done, I am so excited to share more about it.

We have been overwhelmed with all the love and well wishes we’ve received since she was born.  We are so grateful for a community that shows our family such love.

I am on my way to snuggle back up in bed with my precious new baby, but I’ll be back to posting soon.

Love to each of and every one of you!


the Millers
