Life Lately.

Oh, where to begin.

This month has flown by and I just glanced down and realize that there’s only one more week left of June. This month has been filled with pool dates, photo sessions, the annual camping/fishing trip, strawberry patch picking, pizza dates with friends and our sans kiddo vacation to San Francisco. Phew. The bags have been unpacked and the laundry is mostly put away, and now we I am in full blown nesting mode. The garage got a good clean out and so did our guest bedroom which will be turned into BabyBird’s big boy room this summer. We also put in the finishing touches on our dining room turned play room and the last big project is to tackle the backyard and make it kid friendly and perhaps put in a vegetable garden.


a little sneak peek at our spring photo session


I’m {after I grabbed my phone to look at the pregnancy app} 24 weeks and 3 days along. I’ve got a few more weeks left of my 2nd trimester and I really can’t believe how fast it is going by. Within these last few weeks I’ve felt more pregnant, with an obvious bump and having to remember to slow down and rest. Every other day, I take a nap while BabyBird is down for his nap and a few times last week we napped together in my bed which is just precious. Nothing like a toddler snoring away peacefully next to you in bed.

Speaking of the toddler, this kid is hilarious and talking up a storm. We’ve got full on sentences and I can just see his thought process on everything as he is trying to figure things out. It cracks me up when he asks “where are we going, momma?” when we are out running errands or “what are we having?” whenever meal time rolls around. Having my little partner in crime being able to formulate and talk to me is pretty darn awesome. On the flip side, I am also being bossed around like no other, but I guess that comes with the new sense of independence and being able to express himself.


Monday thru Wednesday our days are filled with playdates, trips to the park, errands and swim lessons. Come Thursday & Friday when BabyBird is in school, I am a mad women on the loose around town running errands, grocery shopping and stopping to enjoy lunch all before picking him up by 3pm. It’s amazing the amount of things I can accomplish solo. But I am always excited to pick up my little buddy by the end of the day and hear all about his day at school.

    These photos are wonderful! I’m hoping to get in a good photo session with my family soon!

      Thanks! These (along with about another 25 pics) were taken in 30 minutes by our family photographer on one of her mini-session deals. It’s definitely one of our favorite and best investments for family pics.
