Five Months!

By Monday, January 13, 2014 No tags Permalink

This boy.  He is the light of my life.  Seriously.  That smile, those eyes, the chubby little fingers that grab on to everything the comes near.  His teeny tiny nose, his soft fuzzy hair.  I love him more than I could ever explain.  And he sure loves me too.

Today is twelve weeks since this sweet boy came into our lives.  His smile makes me smile a thousand times a day.  Last night, I got to smile at him at midnight, again around one, again at two, then three, four, and five AM.  I got up at 6am and gave him to his

Apparently today will not be Mathew’s birthday. He is waiting. He is happy and safe and wiggly in my belly at this very moment. Two trips to the hospital, hours on the monitors, sleepless nights, and he is still waiting.

Ok kiddo. It’s ok with me. Message received loud and clear

Mathew Belly :)

This pregnancy has flown by faster than I can believe.  I’m 34 weeks right now, which means this kiddo could be coming anywhere between 3-6 weeks from now.  I wanted to document every bit of this experience as I know this guy will be our last baby, but life, morning sickness, gestational diabetes

I went to a Charlotte Mason seminar in Santa Barbara awhile ago, looking for some ideas to add to our homeschool year ahead.  I came home determined to find a place for our own “Nature School”.  A place for the kids to visit year round – for them to see the changes of the seasons

Library Peace…. Finally!

By Thursday, May 30, 2013 No tags Permalink

It only took us 5 years but we finally had a successful (peaceful) trip to the library.  The boys are growing up!  Our usual trips would end with someone standing on a table or building a fort out of pillows and librarians giving me “the look”, but this time everything worked.  Maybe

Nathan at 32 Months

By Thursday, May 16, 2013 No tags Permalink

A few things I want to remember about Nathan at this age.

His long hair, how it stands up in the morning, how he likes to style it like a rooster, how it falls in his eyes and how I love to push it out of his face a hundred times a day.  How he screams when

Mother’s Day 2013

By Tuesday, May 14, 2013 No tags Permalink

We spent Mother’s Day this year drinking tea, swimming at the pool and eating hot dogs covered in sauerkraut.  It was pretty much perfect.

I love this picture of my grandma.  The boys call her Gigi and she is as hip as they come. 

My mom, me, and the boys.

happy fun boys

By Friday, April 26, 2013 No tags Permalink

Some of the best things in life are so simple.  Take out food at the park.  Flying a foam glider with friends.  Taping it back together twenty times until it’s broken in so many pieces it cannot be fixed.  Tickles from your dad.  Watching your boys
