right now, there is this lingering smell of vomit on my shoulder that i can’t seem to get rid of. all three kids have taken turns experiencing a brutal stomach bug this week and i haven’t been outside in two days. it hits for just maybe a 12 hour stretch, and then they are happy and back to their regular selves, but just as we think we’ve sterilized everything and it’s left us in peace, it hits another family member. SO FUN. it’s definitely making the rounds in our neighborhood because many of our friends have had it the past few weeks as well, but it surely can’t make the rounds a second time in the same household (RIGHT?!). i’m crossing my fingers josh and i have somehow miraculously skipped it this go. (we’ve basically had our fair share of experiencing it by being puked at and on over the past few days and that should count for something, yeah?)
hoping by next week (THANKSGIVING) it is gone! and hoping all of you are staying healthy this season, too!
sharing a billion photos from the past few weeks, many from our iPhones, today! the past few weeks have flown by but these photos help us remember all the little moments in there, that these past few weeks didn’t just pass us by without creating some beautiful memories as well.
a few of my favorites…
when we go in to kiss his cheeks he laughs so hard and covers them like this! it’s one of his favorite games, and it’s the sweetest!
quick photo on the way home from church! (for those who asked on insta, my boots are by frye. they are about 5 years old and still holding up so well thanks to josh and his cobbler.) faux fur vest HERE (on sale!) and denim dress HERE. and choker necklace HERE.
from a little after school tea party at alice’s tea cup with my sweet E and friends!
a firefighter making some play-doh pizza!
celebrating my friend mari’s birthday with a double decker bus ride around manhattan! i’d never done this before, and it’s a lot of fun! happy birthday, mari! and thank you amanda for the pictures! (my coat with the faux pink fur collar from HERE.)
these two on their bike together is just the sweetest!
like pretty much everything, conrad likes to do it himself. he gets sad or mad if he doesn’t get to!
her hair is my absolute favorite. love when she asks me to do it for her.
josh snapped this photo on his phone after samson came over to him and asked him to help him tape his other “skate” to his foot. haha! he taped that first one all by himself and was so proud. who cares about lego pain when you’ve got skates!!!!
josh took these pics a few weeks ago after i interviewed randi zuckerberg at 30 rock for the sprout network. it’s on my Facebook page if you wanna see.
always brings some sort of toy or gadget with him to the playground! spy glasses and cowboy boots!
i found this on josh’s phone. haha. i didn’t know he took it but it made me laugh, so sharing it here to archive.
by the way, exciting news! even if a bit unrelated, but i know so many of you have asked about my booties i’m wearing in this picture and since i’d bought them last year at nordstrom, i couldn’t find the exact pair online anymore. BUT, a reader named jenna found them (thank you, jenna!) and the exact pair can be found here. also, they are on sale, so extra exciting. i’ve lived in them this fall, they go with everything and are incredibly comfortable. also, how cute is my E in her all-purple look?! love this stage of dressing herself so much.
you see what i mean about never leaving home without some sort of gadget or accessory?! ski goggles for bike rides, okay!!!!
also, eleanor’s make-shift tool belt makes me all sorts of proud. i just love these kids so freaking much.
somehow it’s thanksgiving next week and i don’t even know how we’re already here, but looking at these photos helps me remember how much we’ve done together the past few weeks and just makes me so thankful for cameras and photos and the memories they help preserve. even simple pictures from our phones, they are truly magical and i’m forever thankful to have them.
