Five Fact Friday // One Lovely Life

1. I’m so proud of how Sophie’s been working the last few weeks. She’s got preschool and three kinds of therapy throughout the week. She works so hard and I’m amazed at how much progress she’s made in just a few weeks. She’s stringing more three-word phrases together and it’s just THE BEST! (thank you,…

Five Fact Friday // One Lovely Life

1. Thanks so much for your support this week with Sophie starting school. I had so many people send messages, leave comments, ask after her, call, or text. Lest anyone didn’t catch it, Sophie did GREAT at her first day of preschool. Milo fared the worst, crying that “Suffie ah schoo-woh” off and on the…

Five Fact Friday // One Lovely Life

1. Sophie has been a “kitty” for weeks. She greets me in the morning with “gwanning mama” (good morning, mama) followed by a few meows. It’s really cute for a few minutes. While she’s in character, she can only talk in an octave audible to canines (which is less cute after a few hours), but…

Five Fact Friday // One Lovely Life

1. Never has it been more apparent there is a boy in our house. Milo is just over the moon about All The Wheel-y Roll-y Things.

Five Fact Friday // One Lovely Life

1. I rotate our toys to keep things interesting around here.

We moved a few sets of blocks downstairs to our living room, and one day…

Five Face Friday // One Lovely Life

1. Jordan left yesterday. Sigh…. I’m doing my best not to sink into lonely despair. It was just so very fun to have her here! I’m a rather terrible hostess, but we did have loads of fun together watching movies, taking pictures, playing Just Dance, and going jogging/walking in the mornings. 2. Did you have a…

Five Fact Friday // One Lovely Life

1. As much as I lament not living closer to ALL of our family, it does make visits from family much more sweet. We’ve had my sister here with us this week, and it’s been SO FUN. She’s been a blessed good sport at enduring our therapy schedule and general lack of doing anything fun or…

It’s that time again — Five Fact Friday! 1. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve really been struggling this week to be patient, calm, collected, and kind as a mom. While I didn’t boil over AT anyone, I spent far too much time fuming/flaming mad inside. This week, I’m thankful for second chances,…
