Hecho en Mexico

After three years of full-time traveling and living in tiny spaces, we’ve gotten used to skipping the souvenirs. Every once in a while, though, we stumble onto something so special, we just can’t live without it. Want to see what we brought home from our four-month trip to Mexico?

I’ll give you a hint : it’s bigger than a plate of tacos, but smaller than a coconut. (At least for now!) 😂

Friends and family, I’d like to introduce you to baby Fitz , due just one week before Christmas! I’m currently 18 weeks pregnant, feeling great and so excited to meet our newest little adventurer.

To answer the questions you’re probably thinking : YES! We do plan to keep on traveling! We figure we’ve made it work with three kids, why would it be any different with four? We’ll be in Texas until the baby is born, but plan to get right back on the road in February of 2019. And YES, the kiddos are super excited, too. They’ve actually been begging for a baby brother or sister for years, but I don’t think they ever expected to actually get one. Ray is really looking forward to wearing the baby carrier on hikes, Kai says he won’t hold him because babies are way too fragile and Marley says she’s gonna teach him how to swim. We’ll see about all three of those things soon enough. 😂

Can’t wait to share more! Be sure to follow me on my @sarahQ Instagram account for belly updates, maternity pictures that’ll be taken by my awesome friend Lisa Woods, and probably about a million baby photos come December. Until then, here’s the first ever portrait of our family of six, drawn by Marley, age 8. ❤

Thanks for your love and support, friends!

The Q Family (OF SIX!)

    The Last Time

    From the moment you hold your baby in your arms,You will never be the same.You might long for the person you were before,When you had freedom and time,And nothing in particular to worry about.You will know tiredness like you never knew it before,And days will run into days that are exactly the same,Full of feeding and burping,Whining and fighting,Naps, or lack of naps. It might seem like a never-ending cycle.But don’t forget…There is the last time for everything.There will come a time when you will feed your babyfor the very last time.They will fall asleep on you after a long dayAnd it will be the last time you ever hold your sleeping child.One day you will carry them on your hip,then set them down,And never pick them up that way again.You will scrub their hair in the bath one nightAnd from that day on they will want to bathe alone.They will hold your hand to cross the road,Then never reach for it again.They will creep into your room at midnight for cuddles,And it will be the last night you ever wake for this.One afternoon you will sing ‘the wheels on the bus’and do all the actions,Then you’ll never sing that song again.They will kiss you goodbye at the school gate,the next day they will ask to walk to the gate alone.You will read a final bedtime story and wipe yourlast dirty face.They will one day run to you with arms raised,for the very last time.The thing is, you won’t even know it’s the last timeuntil there are no more times, and even then,it will take you a while to realize.So while you are living in these times,remember there are only so many of them andwhen they are gone,you will yearn for just one more day of themFor one last time.AnonymousReplyCancel
