family fridays

This week went by pretty fast.  It was a hot one, but we survived!  Here's what we've been up to:

Josh: Busy, as always.  Still doing really well, just not sleeping as often as he'd like.  He really, really, really looks forward to sleeping in on Saturdays now, and I don't blame him!

Micah:  This kid jabbers so much all day long, and it is quite a hoot!  He uses hand gestures and the appropriate voice inflections, and even throws in a real word every once in a while.  So fun to watch.

Today Micah helped me make blueberry muffins.

Shortly after taking these photos I joined him at the table to enjoy my own warm muffin.  Here is the conversation that followed:

Micah: (pointing to my muffin) Mommy's?
Me: Yes baby, that's Mommy's muffin.
He promptly reached over, grabbed my treat, took a huge bite, and then let out a prolonged, "Mmmmmm."  

So I guess somehow my blueberry muffin was tastier than his.  Oh well.  As most mommies know ... your food is never really just your food.  

Me:  I am so grateful to be not working while Josh is in school.  Sure it puts us in a sticky financial situation (mountains of loans, anyone?), but the amount of stress that  I don't have and the amount of time and energy I am able to pour into my husband, son, and soon-to-be little one, is worth it without a doubt.  I have this thought nigh every day and I breathe a prayer of thanks every time.  

Thanks for checking in on us.  Hope you have a great weekend!

  1. Thanks for loving our men, Sarah. The big one and the little one (and even the little bitty one, or the little bitty girl one). You're tops.
