lazy summer days.


Yesterday was a perfect day. Beautiful weather, a relaxing picnic + fun times at the park made for a great afternoon with my favorite little man.

We be swingin'.

Happy Tuesday!


outdoors time.


Making sure my little one gets outdoors time is something I'm not really good at (if you couldn't already tell by looking at my pale-faced child) - I usually like spending time outside but it's been so stinkin' hot these days, I'd much rather stay inside than endure the sun's brutal rays. I keep reminding myself that a trip to the beach will renew my love for summer.

Over the weekend, we were finally blessed with a beautiful day/evening and Lincoln finally got his vitamin D fix. 

Here he is "talking" the birds...

This face!

Any fun ideas on how to beat the summer heat? 

baby on the move.


This kiddo is officially on the move. He's got his own variation of the army crawl but he's fast. Our home isn't that big so he can get from point A to point B pretty quickly. I've found him reaching for things he shouldn't have and chewing on my sandals (proof it's finally time to whip out some baby proofing goodies). His favorite spot though is the kitchen (why is that?). Maybe it's just easier for him to get around on the slick floor. Last week I finally grabbed my camera, layed down on the floor and let him crawl away.

Chewing on the table legs. Nothing new.

6 months!


My baby boy is 6 months! I can hardly believe it. How did half a year slip by so fast? I'll never really know. We're finally starting to enjoy solid foods, especially sweet potatoes. Green beans? Not so much. He can sit up on his own but not for too long (we've done a few face plants into the floor). And crawling just might happen before we know it. This kid seriously just wants to go. 

I am truly amazed at the development + learning these little ones do in their first year of life. It goes by fast but I'm thankful I get to experience these milestones with him.


Happy 6 months, little man! Mommy + Daddy love you so much! 

a rainy day.


I like rainy days. Always have. I think it makes me slow down + really take the day in.

Hope you are staying dry today.
