  We’ve had a lot of late nights and early mornings in our house. Oftentimes, the baby will wake up at 5:30 or 6 for a feeding, and I’ll just be setting him down again when Nolan will stir and start calling our names. This leads to Ivy barking and howling from downstairs, and our morning abruptly begins. My sweet husband will let me snooze for a bit while he entertains Nolan downstairs with trains or an episode of “Curious George”. And when I walk down the long flight of stairs with Ephraim in my arms, I laugh to myself because I honestly cannot remember what life was like pre-children. What was it like before all these responsibilities? There is no use dwelling on that for long, because I have two little guys who NEED me. Like a lot. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. :)

This is finals week for Steve’s three classes—and then he’s done teaching for the summer! Since January he’s been driving 100 miles round-trip on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 65 miles on Mondays and Wednesdays. I’m sure he’ll be glad not to be commuting again until August!


  1. Just know that you're not the only one in the toddler early morning club! I can't wait until they figure out that sleeping past six is a possibility. :-)

  2. Those boys are yours are so cute! And I can completely relate to your thinking! I remember moments before Xavier, but they almost foggy these days. Wouldn't have it any other way though :)
    Yeh for Steve being off and home for the summer :)

  3. I have really enjoyed reading your blog, great stuff...but it's the photos that stick out the most, love them!

  4. Oh man, it will be SO nice to have him home for the summer! Exciting!


Thank you so much for your comments! I enjoy reading each one!
