I love how Townes' nursery turned out . . .

Mike gave me a budget, and I spent half of it on this lamp.

Here's another picture just because it IS that beautiful (no regrets at all).

Yummy pillows from West Elm sale.

Luckily, the Axts gave us Mike's old bookcase . . .

and bedroom dresser.

Cool retro owl lamp.

Sticks from the backyard are so cheap and beautiful.

Etsy art . . .

more Etsy . . .

and more Etsy.

I even managed to furnish the room with children - all within the budget! How good am I?

He's a little bit of Owie . . .

And a whole lot of Elie Mak.

sock snowman

Remember Owen holding his little sock snowman in the NICU?? It was almost as big as him.

This is Townes with a little hand-me-down. :)

t's homecoming

Dear Blog,
I'm so sorry. It's not just you. My laundry hasn't been done yet either.

he's here!

Our newest addition, Townesend Jude, joined our family at 11:28am on October 7th. Townes was born at 39 weeks gestation, and will spend zero days in the NICU. :) At 9 lbs.,11 oz. and 22 inches long, he looks and feels nothing like our little two-pound twins did three years ago.

More pictures to follow soon . . .

zoo pics

Pics from our trip to the zoo today. So fun to still be vertical, and be able to enjoy time with the twins. (Also great that my mom went with us and pushed the stroller, because there was no way I was getting my very pregnant butt and O & E up some of those hills!)

Good times!

My sweet little meerkat.

My child who has no idea how to "just put your face in" for a little picture. I was nervous we weren't going to get his head out.

Feeding parakeets.

Getting a little bit of mommy's "nesting instinct."

"Holy crap! Did I just climb under a gorilla?"

Riding on the kimodo dragon . . .

the tiger . . .

and the monkey.

Some pics from our one-week lake vacation with the extended Axt family.

The Axt girls threw our new boy a baby shower!

And Owie was happy to attend because they had cupcakes.

Cousins getting ready for story time. I love how Owen and Zoe are two of a kind, and Eliot and Elijah sit toward the back and roll eyes at them.

Story with Uncle Mike/Daddy.

Heading to the lake with CeCe.

Ski biscuit rides with Dad . . .

And boat rides with BaBa.

More stories with CeCe . . .

And a special rendition of "The Little Engine that Could" with BaBa.

Eliot taking her turn on the knee board.

Great group shot with the grandkids.

Oh no! Where did Owen learn this face?

And where did El learn this one?

Ahhhhh . . . makes perfect sense.
