Nancy
Spoke at two retreats, redid the NRP Studio, ran 2 10K’s, survived the summer of 2017 while being VERY pregnant (hallelujah for the pool!), photographed 6 weddings, launched 2 online courses, and had a beautiful baby girl on July 26th – her proudest accomplishment.

Will
Led 3 C12 groups in Durham and Cary, took Milly to the pool every other day this summer, was awarded the C12 Rookie of the Year, joined F3 where he works out almost every morning and he’s known as “B&E,” and officially became a “girl dad.”

Milly
Became a big sister! (She continues to smother Lyndon with toddler love daily.) She learned to converse in her own “Milly” way, by saying the most adorable phrases like “By me-self” and “I’m are!”, she conquered the potty, went from being timid and scared of the pool to jumping in off the side into Daddy’s arms and going under, participated in Jess and Kyle’s wedding as the sweetest little flower girl, went to see her first movie, and adores her teachers and friends at preschool.

Lyndon
Arrived on July 26th, learned to sleep through the night, met her adoring big sister (and loves to laugh at her), traveled to Nashville to meet her cousins, and has become quite the NC Mountain lover with 4 trips there in her 4 months of life. Needless to say, we are all smitten!

Stats
C12 groups hosted by Will – 36
Weddings photographed by the #NRPteam – 30
Kisses on Lyndon’s face given by Milly – 5,798
Library visits with Milly – 24
Diapers changed – 1,237
