life lately

Savoring these last few days with my firstborn :) As much as we try to explain that he’s going to have a baby brother, he has no clue that our lives are about to change.

Last weekend, I made a few cupcakes for Steve’s half birthday, just for fun.

Nolan has really gotten better at playing with his toys for longer than five minutes—which makes me so happy! He’s really been enjoying his Hot Wheels. If you notice behind him, he used his Duplos as little garages for them.

Loving fresh baked bread recently! I wish I had the energy to make it all the time.

I made a few business cards for my blog—for those occasions when I mention it to someone but don’t have a paper or pen ready to jot down the link. I love how they turned out!

After about a week of no naps, he’s finally taken 4-5 naps in his new bed. It’s still not easy to get him to sleep, but at least I know it’s possible!

A fun play date with friends. Such cute kids!

Steve took our car to drive youth group kids to a concert—so we brought Nolan’s car seat inside. He wanted to be strapped into it in the kitchen. And he stayed there content for quite a while!
Steve at the concert. They waited outside in freezing temps for 3 hours! They saw Newsboys, Tenth Avenue North, and Plumb.
I’ve loved Plumb since junior high, and wish I could have seen her too. Steve took a few photos and videos for me though :)
Playing trains at the library. I forget that the library is so close. We need to take advantage of that more often!

A super rare moment. He was having trouble waking up from a nap, so he fell asleep again with me on the couch.

We’re on the edge of our seats wondering when this new baby is going to arrive (tomorrow is my due date). It’s so strange to know that it could be as soon as tonight, or it could still be a week from now. The nesting and to-do lists have been a little nuts this week. I’m nervous about the logistics of it all. It’s hard to have any semblance of a plan for Nolan when we don’t know what day this is happening. But we’re really getting excited!


  1. I love your business cards! Did you design them yourself? They are the cutest. Glad to see you are enjoying these last few days with Nolan before he is a big brother :)

  2. I was wondering if your new little one had made his grand debut yet, sounds like the wait is still on! So nice to have this time with Nolan before things get a little hectic for a short while. :)

  3. How exciting to have made it to your due date! I can't wait to hear the news that your little guy has arrived :) Good luck to you all!
    And that photo of you and Nolan napping on the couch together is just precious!

  4. So sweet! He's going to be a fantastic big brother!

  5. Thinking of you today, girl and dying to know when that baby arrives!

  6. Mmm, fresh baked bread AND cupcakes? I love it! We just stopped by to say hello. We're a shaving company called Dorco, and while you may not have heard of us yet, we're changing the way razors are done in the U.S. and Canada. Our razors cost up to 70% less than the big guys'. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice the quality of your shave. Our razors are crafted with the highest quality blades and moisturizing strips containing aloe and vitamin E to soothe and hydrate even the most sensitive skin. Read what others think about our products and our prices at Thanks again for this great post!

  7. Was your husband at Winter Jame by chance? We work with our youth group and they are planning to go next month and I recognize some of those bands. Either way, sounds like fun! Love your business cards too!
