Everyday moments are the most important ones of all, don’t you think?
Cell phone pics filtered and shared.
It’s what we do.
I snuck out this week for a couple of hours solo and found myself at my favorite local nursery.
Where I was kicking myself for tossing out our old cast iron kitchen sink.
Becuase this is the most awesome garden art. I must recreate it. Like NOW.
Scouring Craigslist for a free sink…
Our church has service outdoors and then a carnival-y kinda thing afterwards every year right before Fall.
The giant slip and slide covered with dish soap is always a big hit.
Jilly even got to do it.
And she liked it.
I had pulled out our globe during the Olympics as a lesson in geography for Henry as we watched the competitions.
I hadn’t intended for it to live on my yellow coffee table, but it just looked so cool there that I left it.
Then my grocery store sunflowers needed some filler…the only thing left blooming in my yard are these purple hydrangeas.
Hydrangeas, sunflowers and globes.
I love happy accidents.
Big brothers rock.
It was an especially harried morning and Jill was insisting on help with her cereal.
She can totally feed herself, but something she just doesn’t want to.
Henry offered to help her while I made lunches.
This boy’s heart is gigantic. Love him. And his Buzz Lightyear watch.
Meg tagged me the other morning to say good morning while having her cup of coffee.
Obviously I had to say good morning back.
It would be bad manners not to.
Obviously Henry had to photobomb my picture.
I think we should start this. And hashtag it #morningselfie
Because who doesn’t want to project their hot mess morning self to the world?!
Our homeschooling adventures continue.
While I might be my kid’s teacher, clearly I’m a 12 year old teacher.
Because I have a REALLY hard time not giggling everytime we work through our Bob Books.
Just when you think you couldn’t love a baby anymore…they start smiling.
And just when you think your heart couldn’t possibly melt any faster…they start cooing.
And just when you think life couldn’t possibly get any sweeter…they start cooing and smiling while they are nursing.
Dead. Dead. Dead.
Andy’s iPhone 763 came today.
Dang, the thing is LIGHT. Like, weighs nuthin’.
I want to jack it. I mean, I am the one with InstaFriday, right?
After all the space shuttle excitment that happened last week here in Cali, Henry’s all consuming love of planes and assorted flying things has been reinvigorated.
I found him reenacting the shuttle flight.
747: check. Shuttle: check. Jet escort: check.
Little boys are awesome.
Until they use the restroom.
Then they are not so awesome.
One of the coolest perks to having a special needs kid is how you savor and notice every little thing on a whole different level.
I know you think you notice every milestone for your typically developing child, but I hate to break it to you…you don’t. I mean, you DO…but not like this.
Because this simple photo is HUGE.
I was unloading the car and came inside to find Jilly sitting in this chair.
Which she had gotten herself into.
Like, without help.
And it’s too far from the table, so she didn’t just lean back.
No, she got herself up and INTO the chair like a big girl all by her lonesome.
My jawed dropped. And then I cried.
Because she is a rockstar. No bones about it.
And she’s starting a new trend. Glue stick hair accessories. You saw it here first.
