lazarus, come forth!

i've decided that perhaps it's time to resurrect this ole blog of mine. i'm not sure how often i'll have time to write, but it would probably be good for me to have the outlet.

a notable update since my last post (we did indeed move to the atlanta area, by the way) -- we're having another babe. due around the end of the year. we're excited, hesitate about what it means to be a family of five, and ready to embrace the challenge of another newborn (most days). though i'm definitely not ready for the sleep deprivation. are you ever, really?

today, we had a few friends over to swim. luke(3) and ava(2) loved having friends around...luke especially loved playing with his buddies. one highlight was watching the three younger boys hold hands and jump into the pool together: cuteness. the kids l.o.v.e. the pool and, even though both are a long way from swimming sans floaties, they are little fish. ava, particularly, isn't scared of anything.

but, with a flotilla like this, who would be:

taking a quick break on the side of the pool. he rarely lets go of his fish swimmie, even when he's out of the water. it's cute.


  1. Welcome back! I am so glad you are blogging again. I have missed it. :)

  2. Thanks for posting. Miss you guys

  3. Congratulations on the baby! No, no way am I ever ready to not sleep. Although by the end of the pregnancy I'm never sleeping anyway. :) I can't believe how big your kids are.
