Oh man…between Emmett’s birthday, Valentine’s Day and Laura’s visit, I never posted about Miles turning 4 months old! Sorry buddy!
Maybe it’s a good thing I waited though because today Miles rolled over for the first time! At least I think he did…I swear I laid him on his back and when I came back he was on his stomach, haha. Miles has also started sucking his thumb and it’s about the cutest think ever.
He is so strong and loves to stand up (assisted obviously) and dance when his dad plays guitar. Seriously! Tonight he used his strong legs to stand up as soon as Ryan started playing and started stomping his feet and swaying his hips. It was so dang cute. Have I already bragged about how he sleeps through the night? Because he does and it’s awesome.
He also can’t get enough of his brother. Emmett cracks him up like no other.
Miles, you are my sweet, chill boy and I will kiss your cute cheeks the rest of my life! I can’t get enough of you.
Hi hi hi! I feel like I run out of time to write actual posts and I just end up posting pictures, so right now while Emmett is sleeping and Miles is beside me doing tummy time, I thought I’d give a little update about what we’re up to!
Emmett: Sweet as ever lately! He loves playing in the kitchen sink and will push a bar stool slowly over to it so he can stand on it and reach. It’s hysterical when you can’t see him but you can see the stool moving from across the room. He loves school, especially his girlfriends Allie and Coco.
Miles: He is getting so strong! He can kind of sit up by himself (for short periods of time) and is getting close to rolling over. He is so smiley and giggly! Today was our second class of Babygarten at the library.
Check out this hysterical picture I found on my phone from a couple weeks ago. Emmett likes to hold Miles and when he does, he insists that I take a picture of them!
My latest blog post is up on Charleston Moms Blog. It’s about how I’ve been keeping my sanity with 2 Under 2. When I was in Florida, my sister-in-Law brought me The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines (of the show Fixer Upper). Overall it was a quick, enjoyable read but something that Joanna said about being a mom and raising kids really stood out to me. She said she wants to not just survive, but thrive. So that means being in the moment with your kids, giving yourself a break on trying to do everything perfectly and fixing and making adjustments so you can feel like your family is thriving. Like staying up 20 minutes later so you can clean up the house or finding a way to organize things in your home that helps your family.
I go through periods of time where I’m super motivated to cook and plan out meals and then other weeks where I just make tacos and order pizza. Lately I’ve been on a roll. Here’s what I’ve made that we’ve really liked:
Mexican Street Corn Salad
Cajun Dirty Rice
Italian Wedding Soup
Okay, I think that’s all for now!
Oh PS: Its a glorious 69 degrees out right now!!
