she’s still little

she's still little

Everly is 9 months old now, and some days she doesn't feel like much of a baby. She's off - my little adventurer, explorer. No time for snuggles, books, or games of peek-a-boo. She has a big sister to catch, and new worlds to conquer. Independent. But then there are the mornings she wakes up [...]

when things don't go my way

You guys, I really (and I mean REALLY) try to keep things positive here, but lately I just haven’t been feeling very sunny. I feel stuck. Like absolutely spinning my wheels, going nowhere… stuck. Rereading my recent posts, I’ve noticed a reoccurring theme: “this busy season in our lives,” “this hectic patch,” “this stressful time.” [...]
