Christmas Tree Slice and Bake Cookies

Christmas Tree Slice and Bake Cookies

Why, hello there! It’s been awhile. Things have been busy around here, and in case you missed it on Instagram, I had a baby! A sweet baby boy, named Jackson Bradley to be exact, aka “Baby Jack”. He was born at the end of October and is just the greatest little guy. He has these big, bold, blue eyes and a head full of dark hair. Middle aged men are jealous of the amount of hair this kid has.

It’s been just over a month now, and we are slowly getting the hang of juggling two kids. There have certainly been challenging moments where everyone is crying and hungry (sometimes, including me!), but overall I’ve found the transition easier than I thought it would be. The tough times are overshadowed by the sweet moments between siblings, like this morning when Avery gave Jack a big hug and said “You’re my best friend!”. Heart. Melted.
