With the biggest love and the biggest exhaustion I have ever known, I am officially Mama to this adorable creature. He has just turned 3 months old! We are blessed to be getting to know this little human, as he brings us to the edges of how big we can love on as little sleep as possible. It's amazing how precious each moment truly is, and how it's flying by already.
So far he has a morning workout routine like his dad, wants to snack all day and snuggle like his mom, and has the cutest giggle ever! I've barely found the words (or the time) to journal this unfolding process, but much inspiration is stirring. You can see my latest blog post here.
I will no longer be serving as Executive Director, but am honored to support SSP very part time as a new mom. So grateful to this village for showering our new little family and baby Shaye with so much love! Look forward to connecting with you all in the new year.
Emily, Jed & Shaye
Please enjoy our detailed recap of our awesome recent camping trip!
"We assigned car and tent groups so as to disrupt the boys’ ability to form cliques. We intended it to be an interruption of their stories about who they do and don’t get along with. On our way to the site we received a phone call from park headquarters telling us the road to our campsite was closed! Upon arrival to the parking lot, we could sense that the group had the energy and enthusiasm to take on the challenge of carrying the essential gear along the 2.3 mile trail..."
