Five Fact Friday // One Lovely Life

1. I’m stucking! Milo has been saying the cutest little things lately in passing. Like instead of being stuck, he’s “stucking.” He loves to get a stick for a “fishing rot” to be a “fisher-mint.” He also throws in an exhausted “hewf!

1. Hooray, hooray! Michael is DONE with classes for the year! And so begins a few weeks of Christmas break from school! I’m beyond excited to have him home. Besides being a huge help and a baby entertainer, he really is my friend and supporter. I can’t wait to have him home! I can’t believe…
