I was assigned to go through some ancient photos today, leading to this post. Exhibit 1: My Mom and me, aka, the reason why my parents look like such young grandparents. They are.
Exhibit 2: My 16th birthday, the Rachel that Angel met, aka, the reason why he bought me black lipstick and black nail polish for Valentine's Day this year.
Exhibit 3: My Great-grandfather Cyrus, and my Great-grandma with us kids. I'm in the back left corner. My sis Rebekah in the middle is cracking me up...

Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while but their hearts forever ❤️
Slowly taking out all of Harper’s baby things and washing them up ready for the new baby - it’s a little scary to think we will have another tiny newborn very soon! #ourharperrose #babylove
Always good to have mom by your side for a little extra support. 🧡 #firststeps
Addison is so happy to be out of her stroller and walking parts of our walks! (I was also obsessing over her overalls so a picture had to happen). 👏
Dicembre ‘92 : Tu già mi prendevi in ostaggio raccontandomi storie “divertentissime”...io avevo già il doppio mento e taaaanta pazienza! Oggi : Nulla è cambiato 👦🏻👧🏻 ❤️ #happybirthdaybro

And these are the days we'll call the good old days... .
This last weekend we were sitting in the Wendys drive-thru at 7pm with a hungry toddler and screaming twins because we didn't plan well. I looked at Jordan and we both just laughed because otherwise I was going to start crying too. .
So many times I've caught myself thinking things like, "As soon as the twins aren't nursing anymore I'll have so much more energy" or "Once we pay off our student loans our life will be so much less stressful" or "It will be so nice when everyone is just a little bit older". In that chaotic, tearful, loud drive-thru, Jordan reminded me that we just can't keep chasing the next phase because then we miss out on living. These are some of the best days of our life. The hardest too maybe, but so so good. .
Embrace the chaos & laugh when you feel like crying. And just soak up your people and all these good old days. 📷: Rock Photography
Being able to document these little blips in time is ✨
