This little man is being welcomed with an immeasurable amount of love. This week I'll be sharing a few nursery sneak peeks from part of my second 365 project! I can hardly believe that there's 6 potential weeks until we bring a baby into our home-- that's crazy!
Blooming Cactus in all different colors!! I thought this was just magical goodness you'd only find on Pinterest! How beautiful is this?! Now if only I could figure out how to keep any living plant alive...
Thank you everyone for the well wishes for our boy! Tanner is back to his busy self and we made the most of our weekend by eating great food and listening to live music! What was the highlight of your weekend friends?

Thanks to you amazing ladies we have to take a short break to catch up on orders because you have all been amazingly supportive. Expect us to reopen in a week or a tad longer with some newbies added as well.

As illustrated in my stories, we cook quite a bit around here... mainly because we really like to eat. Daphne and Sullivan love to help me in the kitchen, and I'm not going to lie, some days it feels like it would just be easier to shoo them into the living room to watch a show while I do it (a bit more efficiently) on my own. But then I also know that there will come a day, sooner than I'm ready for I'm sure, when they will stop asking to stand on their little stool to help me prep dinner in the kitchen.
So yes. Come on my babies, grab your little plastic knives and chop until your hearts are content. We usually play Ingrid Michaelson on pandora and when all is said and done, they truly did help out, and I'm almost certain they will remember these times fondly and vividly; I know I will. #mylovesonfilm#sundaythoughts | and some of our maternity photos by my friend @kentavenuephotography were featured on @cottagehillmag last week if you'd like to peek at more!
motherhood's dark side is like a strict headmistress - black dress buttoned up past her neck, judging spectacles balancing on her nose. she beats you, scolds you, tells you that you aren't good enough or strong enough, and you stand completely helpless to her will. there is no quitting on her, and if you talk back you'll feel a punishing sting. this was the first full week of Josiah's grueling outage schedule. today is day 6 without him, and I am feeling the weight of Darth Motherhood. it's been 6 mornings of being awake at 4:30am, 6 days of nap-fights, and approximately 30 diaper changing wrestle matches where I have to sing the hokey pokey just to get her to lay still long enough. this morning I just couldn't anymore. I found myself crying on the kitchen floor hoping she wouldn't find me, just for a minute alone. next thing I knew I was driving to my moms, because I just didn't know what else to do. she traded car keys with me, told me to go home and get some rest while she took Phoenix grocery shopping. and now I am writing this while eating mac n cheese in bed after a 2 hour nap. if you've actually read this whole thing, you've made it to the happy ending: my mom is my best friend, my hero, my saving grace - and I aim to be as incredible a woman, human being, and mother that she is. #ourphoenixeileen
