navy & white

oy. i've spent every free moment this week writing -- between a press release for a new food product and eight white papers about landscaping, all due this week, my typing fingers have been busyyy. good news is, i can tell you anything you've ever wanted to know about soil erosion or irrigation systems. even better news is, i'm only one and a half papers away from being done.

so that explains the blog silence...i've been much too busy writing boring crap to come up with witty and entertaining posts. but here i am, taking a break to share a lovely story with you.

one day last week, jack woke up and i fed him. i got him dressed. we played. i put him down for a nap. i checked my email and ate a chocolate chip waffle. i got in the shower. i got myself dressed. i got jack up from his nap...and noticed we were wearing the exact same thing.

apparently i have a thing for blue and white stripes:



we're nothing if not trendy in this house, i guess. don't tell jack's daddy that we were wearing byu colors :)

and, just because it's cute, here's another dose of jackal. this kid keeps getting better and better. he now sleeps 12+ hours per night without getting up ONCE and i adore him for it. he's starting to scoot on the floor, but sometimes this backfires like today when he pushed himself up onto his hands and knees, launched himself forward...and faceplanted right onto a stacker ring. poor guy. he loves all baby food flavors and sometimes i let him suck on chips or crackers, which, as evidenced below, is really exciting:



people always say they're so sad that their babies are growing up quick, but i am not one of those people. every new phase is my favorite and i can't wait to see him crawl, walk, talk, etc. being a mom is so much fun, even if sometimes it's hard.

Wow girl you are busy! I guess it's all self inflicted though :) haha. I am TOTALLY with you, the baby phase is NOT my favorite. Kids just get more and more fun as they get older!Way to go J on the sleeping!

I feel like I'm always saying the same thing, but seriously—he is SO cute. Jack is probably going to crawl before Clara. My goodness, that girl needs a kick in the pants. :)

That's funny! twins :). What are white papers?

I could not agree with you more. I like S more and more the bigger she gets. each phase is so much more fun than the one before. I'm excited for her to crawl and walk and grow!

I adore his chunky cracker arms.
