April 2018 iPhonetography

April may have very well been the busiest, most change-inducing month of my life.

All within a 30 day span:

  • new baby (welcome, Brielle!)
  • went house hunting and climbed up and down a million stairs 10 days after a c-section
  • Ryan turned 3
  • threw Ryan his first ever birthday party (Pete the Cat themed, of course)
  • bought a new still-under-construction house
  • hosted Brielle’s baby naming ceremony

So… yes. New baby, birthday celebrations, new house – suffice to say, ch-ch-ch-ch-changes.  I’m all about adventure and excitement in life, but this may have been a little too much for even me to handle in a mere one month span!

As usual, here’s a roundup in pictures of how we spent the past month. Many of these come from my private Instagram account, but you can follow along on my public account here.
