"Fortunate. Blessed. Happy. Overwhelmed with gratefulness. That's how I feel when I think of my family."

It was not an easy journey to get here. We struggled with infertility and are so lucky that we have our two babies. We are so lucky they are healthy. But again lucky doesn't really cover it.

Cohen is the love of my life. I never knew how much I could love someone until he came along. I love watching him grow and listening to him talk and learn. He is smart and persistent and loves all things boys love-cars and sports the most. He has changed my life and me in so many ways and is the one who made me a momma.

Evie is my sunshine. My happy baby girl. When I see her face light up and blue eyes sparkle I just feel in my soul that she was meant to be mine. She brings so much joy to life. We didn't find out the gender when I was pregnant and were completely shocked she was a girl. I'm so glad she was. I can't wait to see little pig tails and hear her talk. She is going to talk so much! It's pretty much going to be the most adorable thing I've ever seen. She cracks me up already. She is so silly. I hope we are best friends.

Evie is really starting to be a little girl and growing out of the baby stage. Cohen has already said "Evie is my best friend". He loves giving her hugs and kisses and reading to her. She thinks he is so cool and loves playing cars with him. Now she makes car noises and pushes cars along with him. It's so cute!

My husband is the best thing that has ever happened to me. If it weren't for him I wouldn't have the great life that I have. He takes care of our family. Because of him I get to stay at home with the kids which is a huge privilege. I never thought I would want to stay home with kids before I had them. But once Cohen was here I never wanted to leave him not even for a few hours!

When I think of my family I feel so lucky. But when I think of the word lucky I think of winning a scratch off ticket or something. Not winning at life or living the dream! Fortunate. Blessed. Happy. Overwhelmed with gratefulness. That's how I feel when I think of my family.
I wish I could freeze time to keep them little. I know this will be the best time of life watching these little humans grow. They are my favorite things in the whole world." - Angie Cleppe

The Cleppe family is near and dear to my heart, I've watched the struggle of infertility and when they finally had Cohen! I've prayed for them and continue to do so. It's a joy each and every time I get to see them. They're dedicated to each other and their kids with all they have. The moments captured are sure to be remembered. Thanks for letting me be a part in your story, so much more to come!
