have lots of photos from the past week or two to share today! mostly from around home. i’ve actually not been feeling well the last few days so i’ve been trying to rest. love this top photo of josh and conrad as they were about to head out one evening to run a bunch of errands for us. i took this picture while laying on the sofa truly not able to move! haha. but they looked so cute waving “bye, mama!” that i was like, wait, you have to hand me my camera! this has to be documented! :)
last week, these two helped me out so much in the kitchen! and eleanor pretty much wears those ear muffs all day every day right now. i love how she’s coming into her own sense of style by always accessorizing like there is no tomorrow! she’s really into rubber bands as bracelets right now (i always make sure they are loose), and wears arm and head sweatbands all the time, too. yesterday she wore both her watermelon purse and pizza purse as cross-body purses as well as her fanny pack around her waist all at the same time. i almost died it was so cute. she filled all of her purses with legos and carried them around most of the day.
when she requests a braid i don’t even blink, i literally stop everything and start braiding as fast as i can before she changes her mind! love her in her little braids!
this child! just hanging out with papa eating some mandarin oranges!
from a warmer day recently! (it got cold again?!) really looking forward to the warmer weather sticking around consistently. that is for sure.
i think if i could selfishly freeze time and keep samson a certain age a little longer, it would be right now. i can’t get enough of what a sweet good boy he is. he has so much energy, but also runs up and spontaneously gives me the biggest hugs and kisses during the day. he loves telling jokes and lately says “can you even imagine if…” as he begins his sentences. he loves playing pet store and pretending to be a baby chick. we’ve mentioned a few times that his birthday is the next big birthday in our family, so he asks every few days if he’s four yet. (not until may 30th.) haha! he’s a good little brother to E and also so good with his own little brother C. i’m just super proud of all my kids right now and maybe it’s because they are all fast asleep and i’m missing them as i write this, but i’m just feeling grateful to have them in my life. i’m sure tomorrow morning at 6am when everyone is tugging and jumping on me i’ll think differently… ;)
had to include this photo because i’m not sure if you can see them, but conrad has the sweetest FRECKLES forming across his nose!!!
kale with bacon! a salad josh made the other day!
do you see what i mean about the arm sweatband?! ;)
since josh and i aren’t eating any added sugar, we’ve been trying to lessen how much the kids are having as well (while not taking it away entirely!). i’ve played around with so many cookie recipes for them recently and this one is by far the best! we sweeten it with a half cup natural honey and the kids are loving them!
we have to really watch this one since he’s so fast climbing up (and down!) the bunk bed ladder! fortunately he has gotten pretty good at it, but i still hold my breath like every single time.
this day was seriously the best day! samson was an astronaut who brought home a martian (eleanor!) i was laughing pretty hard at their conversation and exchanges. they play so well together.
and when sister blows bubbles down from her top bunk, it’s a party!
