"New Morning" (Just a little bit of news) ;)

posted on: Wednesday, February 1, 2012


So much newness going on over here at the Gatlyn bungalow! The past couple of months have been some of the hardest and most wonderful. Out of every hard and dark, stormy night, always comes sunshine and the promise of a new morning. I have to say, this is my absolute FAVORITE video my man Samuel has ever created. :) Here's a peek into our day!


AAAAAAHHH!!!  Yeah, nothing much, just a normal, typical day in our little world. ;) haha! Eeee!!! I look forward to sharing more of my mornings and days ahead with all of you beauties! This journey has been so life changing and heart changing. Let's go on another adventure together shall we!? This August is going to be a busy, exciting baby filled time let me tell ya!

  108. Oh...that video!! congratulations, sweet girl. You're growing family is so beautiful and precious. Do you think you'll have another homebirth? I started reading your blog last year when I was pregnant. I birthed my baby girl at home this past May. She finally came after a 34 hour marathon...but I still wouldn't have changed a thing. I know you had a long birth too...but I have to tell you, your story and pictures really inspired me. Giving birth truly teaches us what we are made of...and now you will get to experience it all again. :)

  112. What a darling little video! And congratulations :D Your miscarriage story really moved me (although I couldn't comment at the time, it was too raw), as it was just like an echo of my own, so it's very comforting to see you conceive again... it gives me hope for when we start trying again in Spring :) I also can't wait to hear your birth story. Kael's one had me in tears, and I'm not normally like that! BTW, what does Samuel use to make these videos? They are stunning!
