  1. Aww this makes me so excited for my niece or nephew that’s on the way! Congratulations to the happy mama!

  2. So adorable! I’m a postpartum doula and love newborn cuddles 🙂 Definitely happy to give them back to their parents though so I’m glad I’m adopting a toddler instead lol

    1. +Kelly Eberly There’s two types. A birth doula supports a mother during labor and delivery. A postpartum doula supports parents with their newborn and postpartum care. I’m the second type. I educate and support new parents on feeding, sleeping, newborn care etc. I also get lots of baby cuddles 🙂

    2. That’s awesome! I REALLY wanted to adopt from foster care ever since I was a teen but the system is so broken here. It’s so sad because there are families expressing interest in specific children and it still takes forever for anything to happen.

  3. I’m amaze at Kennedy and Shelby’s sensibility. When I was their age, I run around wild, climbing trees and hoops.

    1. I’m sure they do wild stuff as well, I was a real tomboy as a little girl but as soon as my niece was born, I was 8 at the time, I just melted holding such a tiny baby haha.

    2. I agree, they’re so beautiful and sensible! I would have not trusted myself with such a precious baby at their age

  4. Those two little boys are going to be some handsome devils when they are older! lol. So adorable.

  5. Would love for you to explain how you choose first and middle names of your children. They all have such strong names! Also how did you name your internationally adopted kids. (My church friend was adopted from Russia and her birth name was Olga but then her parents once they brought her back to the states re-named her Kathleen but kept Olga as her middle name) It’s all so interesting.

    1. I’m adopting and doing the same as you church friend 🙂 I’m giving her a new first name but using her given name as her new middle name. If the child is young enough I like that because it blends their old and new lives.

    2. Someome that I knew adopted a kid from Russia, too. Her name was Veronika but later changed to Veronica. The mother decided to keep the name and only change k to c

  6. My mom’s sister is married to a man named Tim and Tim is Pete’s brother!! So, as my mom put it, I am related to someone, who is related to someone, who is related to one of my favorite YouTubers! I have been following this channel for almost a year and I had no idea! Congratulations on baby Hazel!!!

  7. Why won’t you let the boys grow their hair out for a bit? I think Afro hair is so cool and pretty!

    1. +Puppylover it’s not hard to control Hun, especially if you take the time to learn out Afro hair and the textures, the boys hair looks lovely short anyhow.

    1. I suppose this isn’t really the place for most GoT fans, it’s like the complete opposite 😂

    1. rosie needed to hv more attention than others bcuz she is down… but not only her, she pay attention at all of her kids

  8. Since you don’t have “school photos” for your older girls do you do any in place of that?
