days like today are rough. Baby wakes up with a 104 fever. She was throwing up so many times this morning she barely had time to breathe. After spending all day at the ER, praying too many prayers, and a dozen tests on Posie later, we get the good news we were hoping for that it’s just a bad virus. Sav and I are used to sick babies + kids, but this morning really rocked us. God is always in control, and in times like these when I’m so helpless, it reminds me just how much in control He is. Everleigh and I left the hospital while Posie was getting all her scans and ultra sounds because today was Everleighs first soccer game. I coach her team and really didn’t wanna miss. We showed up to her game minutes before it started with throw up all over us, I’m just sad we didn’t get a picture lol. We’ll get one at next weeks game. The baby is currently sleeping on me while Savannah is showering all the throw up off her to take Ev and some friends to a kidz bop concert. Savannah is a super hero and stronger than I could ever hope to be. I have no idea how she does all she does. I’m just really thankful for my little family and for a God who I can trust in good times and bad. He loves my kids and family more than I ever could, and that blows my mind.. you’re a good God.

She will always be my little girl. Most of the time nowadays I entirely forget that Everleigh isn’t my biological kid. It’s just become so normal and feels like I have 2 daughters. Which I do. Family doesn’t need blood, it just needs love and consistency. Coming into Everleighs life years back wasn’t always easy, and after having a new baby of our own has brought new challenges. Everleigh has grown and matured so much this past year it’s crazy. But it’s all part of life and God’s greater plan. This girl has made me a better man. I needed her so much more than she ever needed me. She’s going to be a world changer and I’m so honored her mom chose me to help lead and love her every day.
My wife is the most amazing mom on the planet. I’m so in awe of how selfless, patient, supportive, and loving she is every single day. I look up to her so much and only hope I can be half as amazing a dad as she is a mom. Our kids will never know how blessed they are to have you. I’m the luckiest man on earth. I love you more every single day, happy Mother’s Day, @sav labrant
Starting off our Saturday right @everleighrose
It’s my best friends birthday! We had Everleigh take this picture of us before going out last night because it’s tough to get pics of just us now. Savannah is truly one in a million. I thought I was the luckiest man on earth when I married her, I honestly am only beginning to grasp how lucky I actually am. She is the absolute best wife and mom, and is content with being just that. She is so low maintenance it’s sometimes concerning. She expects absolutely nothing and is so grateful for the smallest things. She asked for and wanted nothing for her birthday... I got her a couple pairs of tennis shoes and she was the happiest. All in all I’m just bragging on my wife finding skills. I love you more every day. You make me a better person. You deserve the world❤️
When you have kids it can be easy to put all your attention on to them. Savannah and I have been through so much the past few years it all feels like a dream. I honestly believe the reason most marriages either aren’t what they should be or don’t work out at all is because the spouses put all their attention into the kids and not each other. I believe you should date TO marry but also don’t forget to date your spouse WHEN married. You’ll always be my girlfriend, Savannah❤️
