Dear Crissy

My life, right now

Kara turned 9-months-old this week. It’s funny, because she’s naturally such a tiny little thing. I swear Evan was twice her size when he was this age. So far, her doctor has reassured us that she’s growing perfectly — and that this is just her normal.

She has a well check today, so I’m anxious to get an update.

I love this shot of Evan. I’m sure he’s thinking something along the lines of, GET THAT CAMERA OUT OF MY FACE, MOM!

Evan is really interested in “working.” If you ask him, he’s not playing — he’s working. Working on this, working on that. He was really excited to get an official pair of work boots, and asks to wear them almost every day now.

She looks so soulful. You know, when she’s not screaming bloody murder.

So, this is life right now for me. If you need some post inspiration for your blog today, do an Intagram round-up featuring your life, right now. Feel free to come back here and leave a link to your post, I’d love to check it out!

    Love this post. I think when looking back someday, we will love most the posts when we wrote about the ‘everyday’. Here’s a glimpse of mine:

    One word – EYELASHES. Kara’s are the sweetest! What a beautiful little family, though I may be biased. My kids look like they would fit right into your family :) Savor these crazy days, said the woman with a 20 year old daughter and a 3 year old son.
