i know i've been a bit quiet here on the blog front for the past week or so, but i'm spending some extra special time with my family. the kiddos home coming, plus my birthday is this weekend and then birdie turns the big O N E next weekend... i can't believe it. we're pretty busy around these parts, but i will try to squeeze in some more posts when i can.
here's a little update on what we've been up to:
lots of slip n' slide action in the back yard. living room dance parties. family meals around the dinner table, tonight i made chicken and broccoli with pearl cous cous and hearts of palm. evening walks through the neighborhood. late night dessert trips for mini cupcakes and shots of milk. cuddles and summer movies... aaand gemma bird is learning how to fall asleep on her own in her crib. she has cried it out twice now and fallen asleep within five minutes. she's a natural. it's hard but necessary. we co-slept for a year but now it's time for her to move into her own room so we can all sleep a little better. things have been good over here. i'm so glad to have the kiddos back home. xo!
