adventures at the library.



we try to hit the library once a week these days. hallie asks everyday if today is the day we go to the library. it doesn't get old at all. :) i  really enjoy going, hallie picks new books and a movie, boston loves riding around in his stroller, and i pick a few books out for myself. the librarians may sigh when they see us coming, because boston is a yeller these days, but they are still super nice to us. :)

these simple day-to-day activities with my children just make life good. ☆

when it snows in march.


 i put my baby in a cardigan.
then take his picture because the light that snow provides is a-okay with me.
then i break out the winter coat i've only worn one other time this winter.

you  know it's been a mild winter when your five year old asks how she's supposed to get across the snow. um, you have to walk in it, sweetie. it's march and spring is almost here and this little storm isn't gettin us down over here. :)

weekend diaries

the rundown:

we listened to the beatles while we worked around the house and rewarded ourselves with dinner out
we watched netflix and ate popcorn and milkshakes
then stayed up talking for all hours of the night
which we really regretted when we had to get up for sunday morning meetings
but really, i didn't regret it because i ♥ those conversations
sunday was a full, exhausting day
but those children! they were so cute in their matching plaid
i was literally tucked in bed at 9:59 pm


not very exciting, but i loved it just the same. :)

no other occasion besides new motorcycle jammies.


just some photos of a 9 month old who got his first pair of size 2T pjs.  you read that right. 2T. we finally got tired of stuffing him into his 18 month pjs. (although i was a fan of the belly hang) i thought this was worth documenting. don't act surprised. :)

boston is never in one spot for long, has three teeth on the botton and one on the top, (cutest thing ever) is highly offended if you don't share whatever you're eating with him, loooves to watch his sister, freaks out (in a good way!) over bananas and muffins, leaves an atrocious mess under his high chair after every meal, refuses to rest his head like, ever. he's definitely an old soul just like his sister. that's 2 for 2 and i have high doubts we will ever have a baby who acts like a baby. that's okay, we like em just the way they are.

but i really wouldn't complain if he ever did decide to lay his head on my shoulder. jus sayin. :)

6 things that happened over the weekend.


- it turned frigid cold. that spring weather we had last week was a mean trick.
- ipad time! and whoa, bostonboy is gonna pass his sister up in size any day now. :)
- we went on a date (thanks maddy and nate for watching our children!) we walked in the restaurant and whoa! there were my parents! we sat and laughed our heads off and it was perfect.
- in primary, we had a visitor who was staying with his grandparents. he got up when we sang the welcome song and said, "i'm jude, i come from a-mer-ic-a" hahahaha i died.
- got to visit and catch up with mark's family on sunday night, aw we love them.
- i made the best chocolate milkshake of my life.

it was a happy, happy weekend.

before boston

boston turned 9 months old over the weekend and now i'm sitting here at my computer weeping over photos from his little life. i'm such a cliche mom, it's not even funny. :) i never saw myself as this kind of mom, but here i am.

boston is just everything to us. this morning i'm feeling a little (or a lot) sentimental, thinking about how he filled a void in our family that desperately needed filling. when i look at him, all is right with the world.

he is our little man and we love him to the moon and back. ♥ ♥ ♥

here are some of my favorites of his first moments in the world:

this week all wrapped up.

 don't mind us while we dance in the ice cream aisle. it's the weekend and we're excited!!!

ALERT: boston ate ham. he loved it. is it obnoxious that i post every new food he eats? most likely. and i think i'm okay with that. :)

this week. it has flown by and been a really good one. full of fun stuff like playdates and preschool and park with cousins. (in FEBRUARY?!) i got to go to relief society and while i was away, mark and hallie ate chicken nuggets and chocolate milk for dinner. that is why i'm in charge of the menu planning around here. :)

happy weekend!
