From Instagram: First soccer practice of the season! {You know those families that have perfectly styled hair and adorable outfits wherever they go? Yeah, we’re not them.} It’s been several years since our oldest played Upward soccer and none of our other girls have played a team sport yet, so this year — despite the […]

From Instagram: My schedule is so screwy because our summer has been so crazy! It goes like this: We do something fun during the day. Then I stay up late working. But I still get up early because I LOVE my morning hours. And then midmorning I am just DONE for the day…which means I’ll […]

From Instagram: 17lbs 6ozs! I’d say we’re back on the growth curve – woohoo! ❤️ Five weeks after he stopped gaining weight altogether, little man has put on almost a pound-and-a-half, and I’ve never smiled so big as I did while double- and triple- checking his weight on our brand new digital scale. The last […]

From Instagram: One benefit of no power for 48 hours is my fridge and freezer are now sparkling clean! {Tip from my sister-in-law: river rocks make great ice packs because they get super cold and don’t sweat!} The best laid plans, right? I made a list for the week with some projects I wanted to […]

Sooooooooo close! If he could just figure out how to move his knees, Jackson would be crawling, and I have a feeling there won’t be any stopping him once he figures it out. This little guy is busy, busy, busy even as a non-mobile baby, but we’re all still really anxious for him to master […]

Can you believe this little guy is almost 8 months old?! That’s two-thirds of a year! In addition to standing while he plays, he’s got mad butt-scooting skillz (although he hasn’t quite figured out how to crawl properly). He’s also started “talking” constantly, and we’ve even gotten some “mamamamama”s. We’re enjoying our time in Florida, […]

Who needs baby toys when your big sisters have toys like THIS?! We’re heading to Florida for two weeks tomorrow. Actually, we planned to leave Monday,  but we decided to just rip off the bandaid and hop in the car tomorrow morning at 4 a.m. for the 18-hour drive! Thankfully, because we’re staying with my […]

Sending our big girls to Florida with my parents 2 weeks ahead of the rest of us. Lots of emotions all around! I posted earlier this week on Facebook that I felt like I’d finally rediscovered my mojo after Jackson’s birth…and then everything went a little haywire. {Isn’t that the way it always goes?!} We […]

We moved the crib mattress next to our bed so we would all have more room, yet we’re still waking up like this! I’m in shock that tomorrow is June 1st! It seems like spring just started, and I was totally caught by surprise when people were posting about swimming on Memorial Day. Our big […]
