Weekend Highlights

Happy Sunday everyone! Just wanted to pop in with a few little weekend highlights. Nothing too exciting around here, but we did manage to enjoy this lovely weather and have a little fun. Ryland and Bobby are both in the midst of, shall we say, challenging spurts (of course Bobby’s is a lot less intense than Ryland’s), so in between the fun times there was a lot of crying and screaming (and they also fussed a little too 🙂 ) On Friday, Ryland’s birthday present finally arrived (yes, her birthday was almost 2 months ago, two…

Friday Favorites

Hi pals! Thought I’d pop in real quick with some Friday favorites, since I haven’t in a while, and there are quite a few things I currently love and adore. So, in no particular order. 1. These adorable spring clothes for Ryland from Boden  So cute and fun and colorful! I love all of Boden’s spring collection and when I got a 20% gift code in the mail I couldn’t resist getting Ryland a few staples. 2. Um, also maybe a few sweet spring things from Gap/Old Navy (in my defense…

Checking In

Hey friends! So apologies once more. My posting has really lapsed the last few weeks, and again it’s due to a good thing, which is an abundance of freelance projects, but still, I hate to neglect this blog, because it means so much to me. So I thought I’d just do a quick check-in about life this past week, mostly based off of my iPhone photos 🙂 We enjoyed some beautiful weather over the weekend and tried to take full advantage. Isn’t this little picnic table the sweetest? It was Ryland’s bday…

Life lately

Hey everyone! Apologies for the lack of posting the last few days. I have a lot of freelance projects going on (which is exciting!) but also means that when I do have time to write, those tend to get prioritized (because while I love this lovely blog of mine, it does not exactly create $). We’ve also had a rough sleep week with Bobby as the sleep training journey has chugged along, and lack of sleep for me = lack of creative energy. But last night Bobby slept from 6:30-5:30 (cue angels singing and lots and lots…

The lies we tell about baby sleep.

So I considered titling this post “Baby Sleep Fake News, LIES!” but thought that might be a little aggressive, and well, nutball sounding. I also considered making this post a more straightforward explanation of our family’s approach to sleep, tips, what’s worked, what hasn’t, etc. (when there is an “approach”, trust me, in the beginning with both kids it’s pretty much just been wherever, whenever, however, and a lot of praying, and tears). But here’s the thing. I realized that by putting a post like that…

Life lately.

Happy Sunday everyone! Apologies that it’s been a few days, but between this little burst of winter in April (really!? snow?!?), R working, and just a low key few days, life has just not been super exciting. I did think I’d hop on real quick to share a few highlights though. We went to Lewis Ginter to see the Butterflies Live exhibit, and even though outside it was pretty chilly, it was nice and warm and cozy inside the conservatory. Thankfully, we made it through without Ryland stepping on or touching a single beautiful butterfly. And…
