In November 2017, we brought home a tiny 5 lb. 10 oz beautiful baby girl, Josephine Aila. She was perfect in every way and we loved her from the moment we learned of her. Upon bringing her home, her first few days and weeks were filled with confusion, but as time quickly passed, her frown softened and has been replaced with silly, expressive eyebrow raises, she has become our cuddliest little girl who always needs to be touching or caressing someone and she loves to be the center of attention and make us laugh. Not a day goes by that she doesn’t delight us with her silly expressions, her goofy demeanor, or her botched attempt at making a joke. Josephine is a thriving, smart, silly, sassy, polite, helpful, hilarious, and loving little girl. In Josephine’s words, she loves things to be “perfect”, loves all things “fancy” and one of her favorite responses to us is “cool”. Josephine is our tidiest child. She follows us as we do our chores and lends a helping hand with a happy heart. Every night before she goes to bed, her room must be clean and have everything in its exact place before she is ready for her “huggies” and “kissies”. She has a heart to help others in any way, and it comes so naturally to her. Josephine enjoys reading and writing her letters and she is a talented little artist who loves color. Some of Josephine’s favorite things are mermaids, Frozen, babies, cooking, tea parties, crafts, dress-up, dance, games, scootering and snacking. Josephine takes after her big sister Giselle and loves ballet, tap and hip hop. She also enjoys a good living room dance party! Our dogs, Oskar and George know without a doubt that Josephine cares deeply for them. She often stops playing and sits down to cuddle and love on her Oskar and “Porksy”. Josephine also adores and idolizes her big sisters just as any little sister does. If they can do it, she wants to try, too. The three of them are an inseparable, unstoppable force. We are incredibly proud of the bond they share, and we are certain Josephine will instantly connect with her little brother or sister just as her sisters have with her.

We love our dogs, Oskar and George something fierce. When the girls talk about how many people are in our family, they always include them in the number making us a family of 7. They too, are our babies.
Kris loves surprising his girls and treating us to fun dates and experiences. For this one, he rearranged the living room and blew up the air mattress for us to cuddle and watch movies while we were snowed in, in Texas.
We love workout dates, just the two of us as we cheer each other on to becoming stronger, healthier and better versions of ourselves.
We love staycations and nights where we can getaway and focus on us for longer than just a date night. It's the best way for us to relax and reconnect as life gets busy.
Ashley loves long baths, face-masks and pampering as self-care and this has rubbed off on the girls, so they love to treat themselves to fun spa nights at home.
We love a good road trip to explore how beautiful and unique our lands and states truly are.
