Eighth anniversary, parenthood style.

Eight years ago, my best friend and I went to grab a drink after work. We talked and laughed for hours, and then he walked me to my car. We said our goodbyes, and then, completely unexpectedly, he kissed me. It was the most perfect kiss. The rest, as they say, is history. Seven years... Continue Reading →

December, Untitled.

Man. October? I guess I didn't keep up with this thing after all. The year is almost over and honestly, thank goodness for that. I'm ready to put it behind us and start fresh. A friend recently told me that 2016 was reportedly going to be bad all around, and I can say that's pretty... Continue Reading →

cough, cough, cough, get away from me

Everyone in my house is sick right now.  Monika has a cough that won't quit.  Ellexa has a horrible ear infection.  My husband managed to catch that too.  Elliah has really bad allergies.  Caleb and I see to be the only normal ones right now, but living with four sick people and not getting sick...

Mustard.

I've been meaning to post about the beginning of the school year and how all that's going and my training and my birthday and everything, but I've fallen down the Netflix rabbit hole and every spare moment I've had has been spent watching Dexter with Mona. Ellexa is LOVING pre-k. She adjusted as well as... Continue Reading →

On the end of summer and not hyping up firsts

I do this thing with birthdays where in my mind, it has to be the birthday person's most special day everrrrrr.  In concept, that sounds great.  But making that happen? Totally impossible.  You can't make every.single.birthday the most wonderful day ever. The pressure is crazy. Unfortunately, I do the same for firsts. I get all... Continue Reading →

Four and done.

The girls are growing up and I'm finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and that light doesn't include any more babies. The girls are out of diapers.  They can get basic things like water and snacks for themselves.  They sleep (mostly) through the night and in their own room.... Continue Reading →

Ketchup. 

I've been meaning to post individual accounts of everything we've been up to this year, but I never seem to have time, and when I do, the task seems daunting.  So instead, here's a photo blog of all the fun stuff that's been going on =) We started the year celebrating Ellexa's 4th (!) birthday...

Goodnight, Peppa

Elliah's been having the hardest time going to bed and staying there for the past...oh I don't know, year?  She'll go to bed, then get up a bazillion times "to say hi," "give you a hug," or make one of her adorably cute faces and tell us a joke.  It's hard for us to send... Continue Reading →
