Follow us on Instagram!🌟Shiloh Jasper Sedivec 🌟He finally has a name! Sweet Shiloh is 1 month old, 9 lbs 7oz and faring well in a busy and noisy home. Life with three is tender, exhausting, perfect, hilarious and overwhelming. I don’t have enough brain power or arms to meet everyone’s needs, it’s full on, I need a shower and a HOT cup of coffee but I am in love with this beautiful headache we’ve created. Caring for these peanuts is my greatest privilege and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you for joining this crazy crew of ours Shiloh. We love you. (Cedar wasn’t interested in being in a picture today so it looks like we have two but I swear there are 3 😂)I wouldn’t leave the party until he asked me out and that was the best decision I ever made. Happy Anniversary my love. Sorry for being a creeper I just knew you were the one. 🤷♀️ thanks for the party @lkgoldman @dan_way8 @loleujensen @rd_way_ 📷 @mikeadrian 🙏🏼On Friday March 22nd our third baby was born fast and beautifully at home. This was our second planned home birth and the experience was everything I wanted. The gentle care of our midwives and dedicated friends who hopped out of bed at 3am to support me, the love and presence of Peter and our two older children make my heart feel like it’s going to burst. 🌟 Our baby is a boy and he’s perfect. He arrived at 7lbs 14oz and we are still finalizing a name. Until we do, the kids are calling him Seaweed. They think that fits our family name theme. 😂 🌟 THANK YOU to our new community in Bend who went above and beyond to make us feel supported as we approached this transition. A meal train was set up, food was dropped off, rides home were given, play dates offered, texts and social media messages were sent... A friend even dropped off a Ayurvedic postpartum recovery meal she prepped for us to put in the croc pot when labor started so it was ready to nourish me when baby was born. Congee for the win! 🌟 I’ll never know how we got so lucky (in less than 2 years) to find so many new wonderful people in our lives. And to my soul sisters and mama in SoCal, friends in other parts of the country and world, I felt ALL THE LOVE! Apparently so did the baby because his placenta came out in the shape of a heart ❤️😳 🌟 For those friends who texted and worried that their check-ins were a bother I want to say- never ever EVER is receiving love a bother to me. I cherished the knowledge that you were holding our family in your hearts and minds. 🌟 I do not take one bit of this for granted. All my love right back atcha you wonderful people! You sure know how to make a mama feel supported and for that I am grateful. @kimieabreak 🙏🏼 @mountainlightashtanga 🙏🏼@bendbirthcenter 🙏🏼@candiceannw 🙏🏼 @lkgoldman 🙏🏼 @baudinolori 🙏🏼 @92675forme 🙏🏼My lovely and talented friend Cate took a quick photo sesh with me and my babes (and my mama) in one of my favorite parks in Bend. Peter was enjoying the best ski day of his life so I’m not sorry he isn’t in these 😉 We love him so much that he is always there (even when he’s not). Thanks for loving these beautiful babes with me my love. All 3 of them!When you can’t get to the mountain, there is always the second story roof. ⛷Poles and Attitude! The season’s hottest new accessories. Watch- I’m gonna come back from skiing maternity leave and this kid is going to beat me down the mountain 🤦♀️ ...Maaaaaybe I’ll just say my pants are too tight and tight pants slow me down. 👍🏼

As we drove through town, Sage looked out the window and pointed to a peak in the distance, “Mama, what’s the name of that big mountain?” I told her it was called South Sister. “Is it hard to get to the top?” I said, “yes, it’s a very hard hike to the top.” In typical Sage fashion she replied…”Ok then, I want to do it.”
Last weekend, we checked an item off our adventure bucket list when we completed Cactus to Clouds (C2C) as a family. My first attempt in 2011 was thwarted by a cold I caught at 9 weeks pregnant. Peter ended up doing it anyway with his friend Gabe and I met them at the tram and hiked to the summit with our friends Greg and Cathleen.
Since then, the full C2C adventure never lined up well with our weekend travel schedules and despite how much we love adventure, taking Sage on the hike always felt a little daunting. Ultimately though, our curiosity about whether we could do it with a 2 year old won over and we decided to go for it. I mean, really…who doesn’t love a good sufferfest?
Just east of Fresno, CA, in an area geographically similar to Yosemite, lies Kings Canyon National Park. After hearing about the canyon’s reputation for unrivaled beauty, we decided to meet some friends and check it out. We pulled into the entrance and I felt like I missed something.
The hike to Angel’s landing is another ass kicker. The hike is straight up and carved into the side of sheer rock, the trail is an aggressive approach to a flat and gorgeous look out above.
That peak above Peter’s head is Angel’s Landing, where we are headed.
Zion From Bryce we drove down the gorgeous highway 89 and into the northern entrance of Zion. Having never visited Zion national park before I really had no idea what to expect.
On the long deserted stretch toward Bryce we were surprised when three Pronghorns bolted across the road in front of us. Peter swerved left, the confused Pronghorn ran right and slammed into the side of our car. I screamed the foulest of foul words and it’s nothing short of a miracle that Sage has not started running around dropping F bombs whenever she sees a animal. Somehow the word didn’t stick and fortunately we slowed down enough that both the Pronghorn and the car were ok. Well I think the Pronghorn is ok. It sauntered of into the wilderness and was only a short distance behind its friends. At the time we had no idea what the animal was and were both in shock. We found the closest pullout and drove in to catch our breath. The shock turned into tears of laughter (me) when this sign was staring at us from the side of the road.
Cactus to Clouds. It’s a 26 mile hike with a 12,000 foot elevation gain… pretty much one of the toughest day-hikes in the United States.[caption id="attachment_382" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] We weren’t telling people about the pregnancy yet so I am trying to hide the mini belly with my down jacket![/caption]
The last leg of our honeymoon was spent in lovely Boulder Colorado with our friends James and Rebecca. If there were an award for the “awesomest outdoor couple” these two would win.

During our 16 miles and 6,000 vertical feet together, Gorgonio threw some good punches. First it tried to get me with an achy left hip flexor followed by my own tears as I pondered whether or not this was a result of my age. My present for my 31 ½ birthday is achy hips?
