The Hepworth Home: Full and Growing . . .

My heart is so absolutely, unbelievably full to overflowing with joy these days. I think I've finally grown into motherhood - at least just enough to the point where I have found out, with God's grace, how to be comfortable being uncomfortable. In that place, I've found that the flame of my adoration for these spunky little souls, has burst forth a million fold. As I've been growing into motherhood, I think my little ones have finally grown into siblinghood, too.

As Atley is now walking, talking and being a bouncy little copycat - her and Lincoln's relationship has blossomed into something beautiful. I worried when Lincoln gave us all the stink-eye the day we brought Atley home. (And I did feel bad for him - his whole life was changing!) Unfortunately, the stink-eye was just the beginning of what has been quite the adjustment period  year.

But, nowadays, these two are inseparable.

I beam with every giggle fest I stumble upon these two having together. I may even drop a silent tear of joy from time to time as observe them in their creative antics around the house and town. Most mornings, when Lincoln hears Atley waking, he runs to her room and climbs in her crib with her and they laugh together until I come get them out.

Together, these two drive . . . 


Honk . . .



Fly . . .

 
Ride . . .


  and learn . . .


They watch for the garbage truck on Tuesdays . . .


. . . and the neighbors' cats, lizards, hummingbirds and trains every other day . . .


 

Visit fire engines . . .


. . . and excavate fire pits . . .


Play peek-a-boo at the park . . .


And "row their boat" across the sea of carpet and tile, with their trusty fluffy companions in tow. . .


And now, together, they (and we!) look forward with excitement, for the new playmate that is heading their way . . .

Just when we thought life couldn't be any more full and amazing than this - this little bean started to sprout! This "million dollar family" of ours, is growing to become a "million and a half dollar family," as Squire so perfectly puts it -- and we could not be any more thrilled!! Baby's guess date, is November 6th, 2014. Happy, happy day. :)

  1. Congrats Jami!! So excited for you! And I'm glad you've "come into" motherhood! It took me far too long. Ugh. But, I LOVE it! Congrats again.
