Katie C.  Loved by Jesus & @echppll. Mama of 2. Comm professional. MA student. Life in San Diego is filled with reading, travel, lattes & nursery rhymes.

Sweet little love is #6monthsold! She is sitting up, saying "bababa", giggling at her brother, and now that she's out of our bed, waking up a little less often. She is usually happy and has lots of smiles, but is also a sensitive soul (see last photo😩). She is still the squishiest, although not topping her growth charts anymore (17lb, 10 oz - 77th %). We ❀️ you, sweet baby 'Oonis'!

My birthday "weekend" was packed full of love, sunshine and snuggles. Tucking away these sweet memories to look back on.

Everyone needs a friend like @oneandonlystine. She always has a surprise up her sleeve. What a beautiful way to say hello to 29.

Missing these cuties now that they're sleeping. I've been logging a lot of hours away from my babies this week, but life should slow down a bit very soon (and my school semester is in the books! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ).

But dat bread, dough. 🍞🍞
(Sorry, I had to)πŸ™„

This little dude had a blast on the 'horsey wide,' but I think he favorite part of being on the mountain is the 9yo girls fan club he has following him around πŸ˜‚.

Dreams do come true. E got to meet a few of his idols tonight at @theclassicalacademies production of The Lion King. Scar, Simba, and of course, Timon said Hi to him. We loved watching your joy tonight, sweet one. We won't be surprised if, when you grow up, you will take the stage and steal the hearts of two-years-olds, too.

Happy #5months to the smiliest baby there ever was. You keep us on our toes with sleep - waking up twice one night and 7-8 times the next. You are more delicious by the day, even though I was a little sad to move into 9 month clothes this weekend. Your brother makes you giggle like crazy (something the rest of us haven't mastered yet). You are a dream, baby girl. ❀️❀️

This goober has been a lot to handle this weekend, but one thing I definitely cannot handle is his cheeeeese!
[see my story for a week of toddler school lunches!]

This family. This life... ❀️
I've been thinking a lot lately about how hard but easy, and perfect but exhausting, and temporary but endless this phase of life has been. So, so crazy sometimes and yet still pretty simple. (I mean - one of our littles just needs milk and snuggles and the other needs snacks, his "a-mee-mals", and snuggles.) They are so perfect. And so needy. And so sweet. And so sleepless. 😴
I sit in the tension between wanting to freeze this phase forever and wishing it away for different, easier times (would so happily skip potty training and sleep training!)
If only I could scoop up all the good parts of now, with all the good parts of later.
Time is cruel.
Time is a gift.
Here's to making the best use of it...
