for the first time i am linking up with life rearranged for the fun instafriday link up, where bloggers share daily life through cell phone pictures. fun, ya?

my new favorite treat from trader joe’s-the mini cone. it’s the perfect snack when i have a sweet tooth (70 calories!)

lunch at my little guy’s favorite spot, ikea. i’ve never known someone to love swedish meatballs so much.

me, wearing my new favorite earrings from mama auj on etsy.

tummy time still involves a lot of tears. we’re taking it in 5 minute increments now-more manageable for sure. i love this baby bum!

little lady has taken to playing with j’s babydoll, clark. he named the baby, and we have no idea where he got that name. i think she’s enamored with clark because he reminds her of j. so cute.

we had full access to the neighbor’s pool while they were on vacation, and the cousins came over for a couple pool days!

we get a lot of use out of our halloween costumes. and the front swing.

have a great weekend everyone!

everyone deserves fresh air.


these little boys couldn’t get enough of it. they played and played in the sunshine. doesn’t every kid deserve that?

when someone from the fresh air fund contacted me to spread the word about their programs, i couldn’t resist when i read this:

Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund, a not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences in the country to more than 1.7 million New York City children from disadvantaged communities. Each year, thousands of children visit volunteer host families in 13 states and Canada through the Friendly Town Program or attend one of five Fresh Air Fund camps.

an amazing concept, no? isn’t it amazing how we take things like this for granted?

can you volunteer? can you host a child? do you know of a child in nyc who would benefit from their programs? can you donate?

let’s help expose kids to what a beautiful thing fresh air is…

she’s eight.


months old that is!

a couple of weeks ago we got word that tpr was granted. yes! now we just wait for an adoption date and this little girl is ours forever. i srsly could not imagine our family without her. she just completes us.

she is sitting up. she loves food. she laughs with a really hearty belly laugh. she still is all smiley. she loves to watch her big brother. she loves to be outside. she loves water. good thing, as we will be celebrating this milestone in hawaii.
