Pregnancy Update • 2nd Trimester • Week 17-18

I have been doing pregnancy update vlogs to document how my third pregnancy is going.
I feel like I am made to have babies. I have had the easiest pregnancies (*so far* knock on wood!), so I doubt anything crazy or exciting will be documented!
It’s nice to look back and watch myself grow.
Just like most pregnant women, I take photos throughout my pregnancy, but to actually have videos to look back on will be something I never had before.
I am going to try to post a video to YouTube at least once a week in 2018! This is a pretty big resolution, and I know it won’t be easy, but I’m going to try!
We’ll see how things go once my third child arrives. Ha!

I am now almost 20 weeks, so this video is from a couple weeks ago. I uploaded a gender reveal video this week. I will also being doing videos on the kids playing, which might be a separate channel. I haven’t decided on that yet. Cash & Sawyer love watching channels like Ryan’s Toy Review, and Cash begs me to record him while he plays with his toys…so they might just need their own channel. Kids these days!


Pumpkin Patch Days

Yesterday we took the kids to MacDonald’s Ranch in Scottsdale, AZ.
The kids had fun, but it was way too hot to completely enjoy ourselves. We plan on going to a couple other pumpkin patches before the season is over, hopefully we’re able to enjoy one on a cooler day next time!
Here’s a quick video from our trip. I lost a lot of footage that didn’t upload properly! So, that was a bummer. But we were still able to get a cute little video out of it.

A Video Diary…

So, we are still hoping to do more “vlogs” (video blogs), but honestly- it is SO hot right now that I don’t even want to bring my camera anywhere! It’s been on average 110 degrees a day, and it makes it hard to even get out of the house. The best way to describe this heat is the feeling you get when you open up a heated oven. It’s disgusting.
Anyways, I did do a little recording the other day and put together an edit. It’s nothing exciting, but I know that I will cherish it & look back on many times. It makes Logan cry, which means it is a success! A picture can capture special moments, but videos capture so much more.
In this video, you see Logan making breakfast, Sawyer crawling, trying to walk, pulling herself up, and  loving on her brother. You see Cash waking up and going straight for his sissy, playing with his toys, kissing a picture of Ninnie & Peepaw, and eating watermelon on the table with dad.
It’s so beautiful to me. There will definitely be more to come.

Video Blog #1

So, I have loved making videos & editing since I was really young. There’s tons of embarrassing videos on a YouTube account I had from High School. It’s full of improv skits with my friends & I. I did all the editing and uploaded them, and still go back and watch them on occasion. I love being able to have those to look back on, it definitely makes me super nostalgic, and I am SO happy I can easily go and watch them whenever I want.
I recently stumbled upon some family “vloggers” on YouTube, and it really made me want to start a channel for my family. I mentioned it to my husband and he agreed to help me make it happen. Well, we tried a few times to get some good footage but it just kept getting put on the back burner. I finally motivated myself to get it done. Logan did most of the editing, I just added and took away a few things and then FINALLY hit the “UPLOAD” button. I am so excited to start this “vlogging” journey.
I love the fact that I will be able to look back on these over time, and my family that doesn’t get to see us often will still be able to watch my children grow.
Even if no one watches, I think the memories that these videos will hold will make it so worth it!

Here is our first video blog…don’t judge our amateur video/editing skills…we’re still learning! 😉
