No Expectations

makes me happy.

Some of you wanted to know if becoming new parents is what we expected.

This is the thing about that, we really did our best to head into this chapter of our lives with NO expectations.

Even near the end of the pregnancy when we were both getting very excited to meet Byrdie we made a very conscious effort not to discuss what we thought it was going to be like. We believed that keeping our minds wide open and taking each moment as it came would serve us best.

And it has. We've both found it incredible how quickly and strongly our instinct set in and if instinct ever drops the ball...

there's always more then enough love there to cover the court!

She melts our hearts.

And lastly, the above shot is for those of you who've asked about Evan (my sister's little guy) and wanted to see them together.

Well, he's healthy and happy (his smile is to die for) and... I can't even believe how much of a difference 8 weeks can make!

Certainly reminds us to ENJOY. EVERY. SINGLE. MOMENT.

So very sweet. Trading in expectation for simple appreciation makes life so much easier to live- and full of far more joy as sweet gift with purchase.
