Our little guy turned T H R E E today. It's been a crazy adventure these past couple years, but it's so neat to see him grow up and watch his personality develop. And yes, I definitely get nostalgic when I flip thru pics of his previous birthdays!

God surprised us with nature today 😊. Had to take pics, of course

S E V E N months. Lily is finally getting teeth and starting to babble. Right now she's really into chewing her feet and eating solids (does much better w eating than big brother!). And her hair has officially calmed down!

πŸ‘ŸOur shoe game is on point, thanks to @thatcatnat and @rafa_mayorga ! πŸ‘Ÿ

This has been the longest/shortest 6 months, but we're getting through it. Sister is growing fast, and smiling a lot. And her hair is finally calming down 🀞🏼(we hope)

Second time making hot cross buns, a la Paul Hollywood's recipe. Elliot was more excited about singing the song than the buns (and he would only eat parts of the bread that had raisins)

This guy was so excited about the egg he picked from the egg swap at school today. He even took a nap with it! But we were excited to find that it was stuffed with candy. Gotta teach our kid to share (with us), right?

5 months old today, with hair as crazy as ever, hence the hats. Also, thanks for the turban recco, @cshucalligraphy - they're so fun!

My niece Mia was born about a month ago, and I thought it would be fun to make her a little headband and bow starter kit. Half DIY, half store bought. These would be such a fun thing to give as a baby shower gift, right? Totally woulda loved one for Lily before she was born!

We all wore hairbows tonight (Jeff included). Elliot still hasn't figured out they're just for girls 🀣

Our last couple days in Maui included a couple firsts for Lily: first time in a swimsuit (she didn't make it into the water though), first wedding (seated at the head of our table!), and first nice meal with us (she made it through without any crying πŸ™ŒπŸ»). Oh, and her first overnight flight. That one is thankfully over, and doesn't need any photo documentation 🀣

Took Lily on another hike today and she did a bit better than yesterday. Wanted to go to the beach, but she needed to take a nap, so I spent the afternoon outside knitting (finished a beanie! - I think this is the 5th one of these that I've made)
