baby love



Tenley has reached my favorite baby stage.
the 4 month stage.

I am soooooooooooo in love with her! I want to eat her up.
her coos.
her rolls.
her smiles.
her breath.
wanting only her mama
her scrunchy nose.
her kicks.
her wanting to laugh.
her "talking"
her noticing Taryn
her baby smell

oh i love it.






i wish it would never end...

what we've learned this summer


3 year olds + dancing = good times


Taryn has been in a little "princess" summer dance class and has absolutely LOVED every second of it! She is in the class with her very best friend, Ava, and they are so funny to watch together. I love watching her learn and grow and just be a cute silly little girl.

{and this video cracks me up... I guess that's what ya get when you have no bum!}


MY 3 year old + swimming = not so much good times

One of my friends from high school has been teaching swimming lessons, and this year I was so excited to get Taryn into one of her classes.

She did GREAT the first day... totally loved it and did everything.
Then it was chilly the next day, and all h.e.l.l. broke loose.

We had a two week course ahead of us and every day when we pulled up she would cry and say, "I don't want to go to swimming!!"

I guess she had a few moments of fun and learning, but it took a lot of convincing!
{like having her "doggy" watch her swim}

in the end, she really did learn a lot...

but for now we just take advantage of the kid friendly flotation devices
