Halfway through summer!

The midpoint of summer has arrived and although I feel like we’ve done so much, I know there’s still more  to squeeze in! Above is a photo of Rosie borrowing her friend’s motorcycle and riding into summer like the coolest cat you’ve ever seen. Here is everything that’s gone on so far and the photographic proof…

Ares at One Month

Ares turned one-month old this week! It’s been a whole lot of eat, sleep, grow, repeat. He loves being held but doesn’t love being naked or his carseat (or shopping ) very much. He’s filling out and getting longer and I’m pretty sure I shouldn’t cram him into NB size clothes or diapers after this week…

May ’17 via iPhone

Hi! Coming to you now from almost the end of May/the beginning of summer! I swear, these are the last baby bump photos I’ll be posting of myself. But first, I just wanted to document the last three life changing-weeks. The above photo was taken the day before Ares was born as I was trying to figure out what…

Happy Belated Mother’s Day!

Raise your hand if you thought last weekend was amazing and that every day should be Mother’s Day! Everyone? That’s what I thought. Not only was the weather phenomenal, but I got all treated nice and was bestowed with artwork, a cake, and some beautiful flowers. We also spent a couple days up at the…

Spring time means good times!

  Hey everyone! Hope you have been enjoying spring (on the days it feels like spring, at least!). We have been fitting in lots of play dates these past couple weeks which makes me feel awesome and social and I know the girls love seeing other humans besides myself, so it has been very win-win….

Cece’s First Field Trip!

This week we had a memorable morning of mama and Cece fun. I accompanied Cece on her first field trip with her preschool as we visited Minnetonka Orchards. Our trip started with a bus ride and then a hay ride (heeeey motion sickness!). We then got an informative lesson in pomology, a delicious snack of apples and fresh donuts,…

Three years of being a stay-at-home mom

   “It’s all messy: The hair. The bed. The words. The heart. Life.”William Leal  As of this month, I will have spent three years as a stay-at-home mom. It’s something I never planned or expected to do. However, once I made the decision to do it, a big sense of relief swept through our household. At…

Preschool!

  How did you grow so big overnight?How did you get so smart and bright?Yesterday you were asleep in my arms.Today you’re growing off the charts.I’m so proud of you.   Frances England     Off she goes! Although it’s been a slightly emotional week and day for me, neither of us cried this morning….

Me and Rosemary

        For as much incessant photo-taking that happens around here, I recently realized that I hardly have any nice photos of just Rosie and I together. (The selfies taken with me in my PJs with my iPhone do not count.) Yes, she is only two months old, but the time is going by too fast.  …

Mother’s Day 2014

I feel like Mother’s Day becomes more special to me each year. It’s not just because I’m a mama myself now, but because my respect and admiration for other mothers and mother-figures is always growing. I find myself smiling at other moms and holding doors open for them wherever I go because I finally am starting…
