It seems we are in July, although I don’t quite remember how we got here. The months after having a baby are a blur, and definitely more so with more than one little. A blur of diaper changing, bottles, wet wipes, and laundry. And lots of milestones, snuggles and kisses, too. I’ll take it.
Nolan turns 7 months this month, but he’s going on 18 months in terms of size. He is a big kid! He’s rolling and thisclose to crawling. He’s got two little teeth poking through, and his long hair is starting to curl.
Theo is almost three, but I can’t believe it until I see him next to barely two-year-olds. When you compare the two, Theo is taller, skinnier, and does so much more on his own. I am in no way okay with this and am trying to find where in my Mom Contract it says that it’s okay for him to grow up. Unfortunately, that’s not stopping anything.
Anyway, we are enjoying summer. The back and forth weather has been a joy for me – I love that the swelteringly hot days have some cooler ones to balance them out. And I wish we could go back to the beach already. As much work as it was, it’s nice to be by the water.
Finally, here’s some Instagram moments as of late. If we’re not friends there yet, please come visit! I’ve been doing a lot with Instagram Stories lately – come see what’s going on there.
PC: our friend Kazia – love that she caught this moment of me and Theo. He absolutely loves the ocean, like his mama.
This picture just sums up summer for me.
This is from a walk in our neighborhood the other week. I share a lot of ups and downs on Instagram, since it’s more of a daily, in the moment thing than my blog post. You’ll read thoughts there that you may not catch on the blog.
These donuts from Duck Donuts – absolutely amazing. I totally recommend them the next time you’re in Outer Banks. (No sponsoring here – just straight-up love.)
Early morning playtime with Nolan, which I love – but I also don’t mind when he sleeps in.
This picture cracks me up because our friends are happy – but can you just pick up on the ridiculous enthusiasm exuding from me and James’s faces?? Yes, we are those friends. I think you can probably tell here that we hadn’t had a date night in months.
Lots of walks on beautiful days around here.
Rita’s has a new coffee ice that is killer. (And no dairy for those of you who care.) This picture is hidden on my Instagram feed, so…see if you can find it 😉
