stingrays

We’ve had absolutely beautiful weather for the last week. And there were so many fun things to do. Unfortunately we are bound to time constraints so we couldn’t make it to everything; but we did have as much fun as possible. On Wednesday we went to the Akron Zoo (again). The Sting Ray Touch Tank […]

I can’t believe it’s April already. Seriously. Time is moving too quickly. In just 8 short days, Moosh is going to be 18-months old… officially a year & a half old. Officially 6-months til he turns 2. And it’s officially 6 months until my 30th birthday. What the what!? Life has been keeping us on […]

I Love Wednesdays //

March 26, 2014

My new shift not only provides me with some extra morning snuggle + playdate time with Moosh (#BabyAri), but I also get Wednesdays off. PEOPLE! – A WHOLE DAY in the middle of the week… for me & Babycakes! Yayyyy! We’ve definitely been keeping ourselves busy on our day off. Workouts. L-O-V-E getting a workout […]

Ari + I had a doctors appointment so we went in style. Well, he did. <3 Post-doctors appointment, we went to the Akron Zoo. It was rainy. It was on its way to chilly. But we braved it. And then we napped. Hard. I decompressed after work in the best way possible: Lush bath bomb […]

Hooray for a permanent schedule change, friends! I’m so grateful to not be jumping back and forth between 2-11PM and 8AM-5PM. Cause that was rough… So far, I’m loving having the mornings to spend with Babycakes (even if we are still in an adjustment period!). Here’s my life in a nutshell lately: …. Wee Tumblers […]

  It’s hard to believe my baby turned 16 months old yesterday! Where have the last year and a half gone!? Ya know, he’s a totally happy baby. I mean, so so happy. Which is good. But people tend not to believe that he was colicky as an infant. But no, friends, he was… we […]

handling a self-aware toddler // TFAWM

It must have happened gradually. One recent morning I just looked at him and realized… he’s completely self-aware. It makes me super giddy with excitement; but it also makes me a little sad. Sure, being self-aware means he’s growing and learning and becoming this person! It means he’s developing and he’s cognitive of situations. But […]

What. A. Week! It’s been a fun ride working 2-11PM. And it’s definitely given me some extra time with Ari during the day. So I kinda feel like I’m on a roll with this whole working mom thing! It feels awesome! Also? I’ve vacuumed, cleaned the whole house & done the dishes every. single. DAY. […]

changes, transitions, and the fallout. //

Changes and transitions are challenging, y’all! My week has not been ‘difficult‘ by any sense. At least not at work. But mentally, I’m drained. I’ve been trying to absorb as much knowledge as possible and trying to keep focused. So when I get home, I’m just ‘meh.’ Which means the house that I busted my […]

Changes = Adjustments //

sometimes-change

Yesterday I wrote about how our family of three is going through some changes here in the next several weeks. And I know there will be an adjustment period for us. I know that a change of scenery doesn’t mean we will be struggle-free. Now we’ll just have new struggles. But I’m taking a leap […]
