Stephanie Kuhn  waiting for my blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of my great God and Savior Jesus Christ โ€ข titus 2:13 ๐ŸŒป

we've been sick all week so here's a cute snap from less-snotty times. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿฐ

i turned 29 yesterday. really grateful for my life, my past, a fresh start, a new spin around the sun. it's crazy to think i'll begin a new decade next year! so many people never even make it to the age i am at now. i don't take it for granted. i'll never be caught clinging to youth. age is a gift. ๐ŸŒŸ

spending elliot's nap time making sweet treats for my valentines and listening to andrew peterson with tears in my eyes (as usual). ๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ“ป๐Ÿ’›
"you donโ€™t have to work so hard, you can rest easy. you donโ€™t have to prove yourself, youโ€™re already mine. you donโ€™t have to hide your heart, I already love you. I hold it in mine, so you can rest easy."

relieved to say i'll be off social media for the next few weeks to fast and pray with my husband and our church family. need to quiet the background hum of anxiety and distraction in my life and i think part of it is rooted in the false security / acceptance / happiness that social media pretends to offer me. i'm giving up tv shows too. oy. so embarrassing to even consider this a real struggle. it pains me to admit how much it stings! i'm choosing more Jesus over these super lame addictions in my life. ๐Ÿ’™ see ya in a few weeks... maybe. ๐Ÿ˜‰

first ๐Ÿฎ milk in a cup today. he only drank a tiny bit of it but he kept saying "minyum minyummy" which is how he says yummy. ๐Ÿ˜‚ i think we are officially on the road to weaning. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’”

first ladybug ๐Ÿž

a freshly fluffed sheepskin rug in the sun... bonnie's kryptonite. she's powerless... cannot resist the cozy. also the snowman window decal is mocking us today, though i don't mind it a bit. โ˜€๏ธ we played outside this morning and elliot is such a hot natured kid, he was pink faced and sweaty. bless him. 72 degrees in january! ๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ’ฆ (and there was snow on the ground ONE week ago!)

it's only 9:30am and i just put this cranky boy back to bed. he woke up so out of sorts and sleepy this morning! poor baby. i'm afraid his 2-year molars are starting to come in already. โ˜น๏ธ

the very wall where we took lots of baby bump photos is now regularly whacked with sticks by the little peanut himself. ๐Ÿ’˜ #elliotlookatmommy #heyelliotlookhere #ELLIOTTTTT

when you're like "where the heck did i putโ€“ *sigh* ... THERE you are." โ˜•๏ธ

return, o my soul, to your rest; for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you. for you have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. ps 116:7-8 /// for He satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things. ps 107:9 ๐Ÿ’— #ineedtovacuum #ineedmorecoffee #butimostlyneedjesus

โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ„๏ธ elliot said "TZEEZE!" ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿ˜‚ (when do i have to start using the ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป emoji instead of the ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป to represent my not-so-little-anymore baby? never mind don't tell me.)
