AMELIA AT 10 MONTHS

and just like that, our little cheeky girl is ten months. i don’t even know how it happened. but isn’t that what we always say when they’re this young? the time goes so so quickly when they’re so teensy tinesy. i’m not sure if it’s because of the season of life we’re in or what. but truly, i blinked and this bubs had six teeth and was standing on her own (actually the standing part…

SETTLING IN

the last of the boxes have been unpacked and we’re slowly settling in to this new place we are learning to call home. seeing as this is now our third house we’ve lived in, i’m realizing you can’t just walk in to a house and call it home. you have to get to know it; learn the house. and let it learn you. over the last two weeks, i’ve come to understand its sounds. like…

MY BLOG TOOK THE BACKSEAT

(picture unrelated but one of my favorites taken last month) anybody out there? i haven’t been in this space in gosh too long and now i’m not sure if it’s even worth it to come back but here i am. you know, it’s funny because people always say you get busier when you have another baby. but what they don’t tell you is not long after baby number two comes around, your husband will encounter…

RANDOM STUFF

andrew is out of town this week for work and i didn’t think it would be too bad. i have lots of things planned with the girls and fun things to do, projects to work on and plenty to do on my list. but yesterday. oh man. sometimes kids just know exactly what buttons to press and they did just that. after bath time, i threw their pajamas on, brushed addison’s teeth and they went…

AROUND HERE

around here things are getting very warm and toasty. the weather was in the 80’s this weekend and we had the most magnificent time outdoors. no boat this time but we had a magnificent morning at the farmers market in the morning on saturday and some friends over for a cookout and then an entire day spent at the zoo. i mean it was all outside stuff and our pale skin competing with the sun…
