Rylee turns 6

Well, I’m over a month late in posting this…but better late than never right!  A few weeks back we celebrated Rylee turning 6 with a mermaid pool party, per her request!  Quincy was born just two weeks before her birthday so I was worried I wouldn’t be able to pull off a party (or at least the kind of party I like to throw) for her with such a fresh babe in tow. I somehow managed to have all 3 kids just 2 weeks apart from each other, so birthdays will be really hard, or really easy if I just lump them all into one every year. Haha, I have a feeling that won’t fly.  BUT with the help of my family, we pulled a party together and I think it might have actually been her favorite one to date.  Swimming, cake and her best friends are really all a girl needs ;)  The last couple months have been a little crazy as we have been adjusting to life as a family of five and I’ve felt so bad for not giving Ry the time and attention that she is used to.  A new baby and a new school is a lot of change for a little person, and I’ve been so incredibly proud at how she has handled it all.  She is mature beyond her years and really is the best big sister.  I feel like she and I have a kindred spirit and I can read her very easily because I see so much of myself in her.  She is kind, sensitive, determined, and goofy. She has a lot of really amazing qualities about her, and I get emotional just thinking about how much she means to me.  I feel so lucky to be her momma and to have the privilege of raising her.  Rylee, you are one in a million.

I’ve always loved Keds? for their classic and timeless style.  I think the older I get the more I appreciate simplicity in all things, but especially in my wardrobe.  White is always a color I gravitate to during the summertime.  I love these classic white leather Keds paired with a simple white dress.  White on white mixed with natural accessories is a no fail look in my opinion. And not to mention these shoes are the most comfy!  I have a feeling the next few months for me will be a bit chaotic getting used to life with three kiddos, it’s nice to have some shoes that can last me throughout the day.  Sweet Quincy girl just turned 5 weeks old and although she has had a rough start with nursing and gaining weight, we are finally on the right track and she’s doing so much better.  She definitely likes to be held so I have been wearing her around everywhere….strapped to my chest like a little koala…but I kind of love it.  I honestly don’t know how I got so lucky with this girl.  She has made our family complete and I am nothing but thankful.  I need to write down her birth story here soon before I forget all the details!

I hope you all are enjoying these last days of summer!  Rylee just started kindergarten and it’s blowing my mind how quickly time is passing me by! Seriously, life can slow down now ;)
