We had so much fun at the aquarium last week. We’re so spoiled and have an amazing one locally that’s incredible for the kids–and any chance for a 45 minute trip, drive through espresso en route and quiet time (forced naps) along the way is good with me! The kids were super excited (dare I say PUMPED) about the penguins, sharks and the “fishies” (Kate especially..). I personally love the jellies, I could spend my entire time in that exhibit! And the sea turtle! Oh!–he’s lovely.
I’ve noticed that the kids have been a bit needier as of late. I think our initial weeks with Emma were pretty seamless, Continue reading
Good morning to THIRTY! Writing it makes me feel young and old at the same time–thirty! I have many friends already embracing their best decade (or so I hear) and have been a little impatient for Continue reading
Two months with this little girl have been pretty sweet. She is relatively easy going and has the sweetest smiles. We felt like she audibly said Continue reading
It has been so hot! Last week, the leaves began to fall and the other day I had to rake them all away so I could break out the pool. Kate and I have spent a few afternoons playing in the water. She loves it. This girl.. Continue reading
We are now three deep in this babies and sleep thing. And now with Emma here, it’s kind of NUTS to remember how much stress I was under in the beginning!

I have not figured anything out necessarily but I wanted to take down a few things that have helped me relax through it all.
I remember those initial days and nights with Luke, so anxious and unsure of how to handle his wake ups, and shuddering at the idea of nursing him again (it was really painful first time around). Long story short, we figured out nursing and found our groove. After his newborn days had passed Continue reading
Last weekend we drove up the coast to find pumpkins! We ended up getting there at a quiet moment and it was so nice not to battle the crowds. The morning had been a little past my crazy threshold so we were needing Continue reading
Nobody told me that three and a half would be the sweetest time ever, most days at least 😉 it truly is! Luke amazes me day by day. He has the biggest love for his sisters, he is a rock. He has great patience Continue reading
This darling girl. I have been so terrible at my note taking for these kiddos lately so I’m giving it a good ‘ol college try.. thus, the randomness of the “21 month update” ha. But there’s so much I can say about our sweet, tender, firecracker-y Continue reading
Sooo now that pregnancy brain is done away with (and now just onto newborn brain..), I am so excited to dig into some books. I have a list of a few I’ve got out for reserve at the library .. what have you been reading? Have you read any of these? Continue reading
