I’m going to write this post in bullet points because it’s all my brain, which is drowning in mucous, can process.

1. I am very sick

2. This, of course, timed itself PERFECTLY to ruin the one and only date night (for sushi!) Scott and I have planned in many, many moons. We had a babysitter and everything!

3. Leyna had a double ear infection over the weekend. I blame her for getting me sick. Don’t worry. I’ll forgive her… eventually.

4. Oh yes, I also felt really bad for her. It was sort of sad to see her laying  in the ER on Sunday morning.

5. She is fine now. She is 22.5 lbs as of yesterday’s well baby visit.  She is also 6 months old as of Tuesday.

6. I KNOW, RIGHT??  That was, like, the fastest 6 months ever, proving my point that your perception of time as a parent is dependent on how much your baby screams and sleeps. The first 6 months of Kendall’s life was like a f-ing eternity.

7. I planned to show a picture of her and her daddy on his birthday and her half birthday (how cute that they share that!), but, you know, the mucous and the aches and the chills are preventing me from mustering up the energy to download pictures. I give you this, instead.


Fascinated by the bubblegum bubbles

8. I also planned to blog this week about these cute momma and baby bunnies I made from 4 swaddling blankets (similar to Mr. Elephant). They are seriously adorable and easy. Here’s hoping I don’t die from the plague and feel well enough to blog them next week.

9. Pin of the week- I don’t really have the energy to go back through all the pins from the last week, but this one seems to fit the bill just fine, and I just saw it this morning.

10. Laughing makes my head hurt.

Kendall is 3 years 2ish months, Leyna is 6 months old

    I think it’s the second child syndrome…my second was much louder than my first (with reflux and all) but time is just FLYING by with her. I think my oldest is appropriately aged but my youngest?, just WHEN did she get so darn old! : )

    Hang in there!

  2. Aw, feel better! Sickness also forced my hubby and I to cancel a long-planned date last week…so sad. At least you have Leyna’s adorable double chin to make you smile! 🙂

  3. Holy crap- she is 22.5 lbs already?? My son is 9 months old and 22 lbs 12 oz and that is the 75th percentile for his age. Are you making triple cream milk or what? 😉

    But seriously you can’t get any cuter than chubby baby chins (and arms and legs and toes…)

  4. Hope you are feeling better! Being sick is never cool, but it is especially bad in the summer. On a side note, love-love-love the aden + anais blankets!!!! I saw them on your recommendations list for a newborn, but didn’t want to spend the money. Now that it is summer, they are perfect for nursing and public without making baby too hot. Totally worth the investment!

  5. Were you ever able to post about those adorable bunny blankets? They are super cute and I would really like to fold some up for a gift. Pairing it with a Peter Cottontail (or other bunny book) seems appropriate! Thanks!

  • He only likes to nurse in the morning and at night and anytime he sees me sit still or notices I’ve stopped moving for 2 seconds. 😆 #mothernurturemothernature
  • Ahh, the classic We Forgot Our Baby In A Forest shot. #happyloudlife
  • We launched a new YouTube channel, and we kicked it off by making bacon s’mores for the whole family! Looking forward to all the great videos I have planned for the coming weeks, including talking about how my #postpartumanxiety played into our decision to travel fulltime. There’s a link to our first video in my bio, and I would LOVE if you’d subscribe to our brand new channel! #happyloudlife
  • The debate rages on, but that silence is unmistakable. 😅
  • Be bold. Be brave. Be loud if you want. Be bossy. Be un moldable. But most of all, love, be YOU.
  • I would love to know what is one thing your mother taught you that you hope your kids learn from you and teach others? It could be a skill, a craft, a recipe, or just a life lesson! 💖My mom taught me to be empathetic and to encourage others. She has always been my biggest cheerleader, and I strive to model that for my children and others in my life now. It is my greatest hope that my kids will grow up to be compassionate people who truly support others. 💖 Your turn! #happymothersday2018
  • Between the @oshkoshkids overalls and the @converse and the blonde hair, I’m just done. Dead on the ground, obsessed with him. #wallaceaustin
