Thoughts & Happenings 09/20/18

For over a week now, our house has been filled to the brim with sickness!

Stephen, Isabella and I haven’t… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 09/20/18

Mothers who are noticing that the normal speed of their life seems to have temporary slowed down. They bask in their newfound ability to stay up… Continue reading The Carefree Days of Summer


Day in the Life | Baby Isabella (July 2018)

Isabella is six months old today! Here's what our day was like yesterday, from her perspective: I woke up quietly, as I always do, but mama comes in to check on me regularly (she really ought to just get a video monitor) and at 9:15 she found me awake.
