our insane month

Here are all the great (and some not so great) things we did in July: Swimming lessons for Miles, four times a week, across town, for two weeks. I went back to work. (Yay!) Jocelyn waves happily as I go. She doesnโ€™t even cry. We had three living spaces painted. Realized that Iโ€™m now allergic…

  • CassieJuly 31, 2011 - 8:04 am

    Wow! Crazy times! And allergic to paint! That’s terrible.

  • jovonyAugust 1, 2011 - 1:41 pm

    I did not know you could paint a piano like that. Maybe I need to rethink giving mine away!

staying grounded

Itโ€™s been crazy busy around here, but itโ€™s been good stuff (minus the marker stain on my cream colored couch today) and Iโ€™m staying somewhat zen these days. The thing that keeps me grounded is these nutty guys. I saw this photo and thought it really captured how soft and perfect her skin is. I…

She rounded the corner on her first birthday and the minute she locked eyes on her new play kitchen, it was love at first sight and HOURS of adorable playing. Seriously cute stuff went on here this morning. More later, bed is callingโ€ฆ

    Happy Birthday to Jocelyn! And the years will just keep going faster and faster, I promise. My oldest just turned 9 and my youngest just turned 4. Both seem impossible. (there’s a 7 year old in the middle too). Enjoy every moment (i’m saying this to remind myself as much as I’m saying it to you!)

  • KelliJuly 26, 2011 - 10:37 am

    Happy Birthday to that cutie! Mine are 21 and 15 and I can remember it like yesterday, the day they were born. I have to stop using the excuse “it’s baby fat” for my last 15 lbs. I need to lose!

  • AshleyJuly 26, 2011 - 11:32 am

    Happy BIrthday Jocelyn!!!!! That slideshow was just precious, thank you for sharing it with all of us! I can’t believe she’s already 1 year old, seems like time just flies by even faster! Hope you’re loving on her so much today!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Bets, I knew if I waited long enough you’d be back in business- yeah!! Connor is a senior and starts school in 3 weeks. Don’t fret, Concordia is no longer using pro photos for year book, so no hurry. But your boxed set sounds lovely. Email or call 260-705-8544 to talk details. BTW, when will we see pictures of ur redecorated house??? Stef
