Lately

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!!
