We did a whole lot of nothing this weekend and it was wonderful.

Ira James, exactly three months shy of 2 years old. Says "bellybutton" cuter than anyone else in the world. Hates swimming lessons more than anything else in the world. πŸ™ƒ

There were moments when I wasn't sure if I'd ever be a mother. Now here I am, with my arms full and little hands always tugging me along through this beautiful (and sometimes hard) life. I'm so, so grateful.
And I'm forever thankful for my own mom, who taught me the absolute joy it is to love and care for others in any capacity...
Happy Mother's Day, all! πŸ’›

Winding down with my favorites in this miraculous May weather.

Margo is back home and tucked into her own bed after 24 hours in the ER and children's hospital. We've got some recovery and more surgery ahead but all is well. β™₯

The story: while playing happily with her cousins, her middle fingerπŸ–•πŸ»was accidentally closed into the door jamb of our bathroom and the top was cut off. 😡 Lots of tears, blood, a frantic mom and several traumatized kids. We acted fast but the damage was too severe to reattach. The surgeon decided to do a thenar flap - so basically the end of her finger was sewn down to her palm to grow new skin. She'll have a cast for a few weeks and then another operation to separate the skin graft. It sounds like it will look and function just fine with time, thankfully.

We really appreciate all of the kind words, prayers, and love sent our way. It means so much (and Margo loved reading everything too). Thank you!

Three cheers for a new month, May flowers, and linen dresses for summer πŸ™ŒπŸ»
How cute is this striped sherbet one from @lalikids?

What I wouldn't give right now to be back here in this favorite spot on that colorful island... instead of sitting on the laundry room floor disassembling and disinfecting a car seat for reasons that will go unnamed 😷
Ira has been sick every week this month and I'm ready to quit life and book a trip across the world. (Where do I find cheap flights?)

Just a kid playing cars, yelling "beep beep!" over and over, complete with bedhead and little boy undies (over his diaper, because even though he's trying to potty train I'm too lazy for that right now). Doing my best not to take ordinary moments at home like this for granted. πŸ’›

Peace, hope, love... feelin' it all today. Happy Easter!

We all woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. So we hopped in the car for a quick adventure to turn the day around and fill our souls with sunshine. It worked. β˜€οΈ

I've been feeling discouraged a lot lately - with motherhood, slow progress, poor health, projects left undone, etc. I love being a mom more than anything but sometimes it really wears on me when there's no time left over for anything else.

And then just when I think I can't clean up one more epic lunch mess or read that same children's book for the thousandth time... my baby looks at me and says "wuv you mom" in his funny little voice πŸ˜­πŸ’› Thanks bud, I needed that today.

Learning the art of give-and-take.
