  • Loving: baby wearing. I don't have the greatest sling in the world but it works! Rosie sleeps while I have two free hands to do other things like standing at the bar in my kitchen typing this! I didn't really start putting Rosie in the sling until last week. I don't know what I was thinking! It has been a game changer for sure. 
  • Reading: articles on disciplining toddlers. We really (like really really) got off track with Lilly during my last trimester and she has been taking full advantage of it. Girl is SMART! Too smart for her own good. I loved this article. 
  • Watching: AFV. That stands for America's Funniest Videos for those of you who aren't as hip as me. Lilly enjoys watching it with Ben and I so we watch at night as a family. Her favorite videos are of cats! lol. She is so cool. And I am often feeding Rosie while we are watching which leads to a lot of jostling for her. I try so hard not to laugh but I can't. Still one of the best shows on tv. 
  • Anticipating: My SIL and her hubby coming to visit this month! Yee-haw for adult interaction! Lilly is pretty excited too. She has asked about a thousand times what kind of snacks Emily is going to bring her. She obviously has her priorities in order. 
  • Listening to: Kings of Leon's album Only By Night. I got this album right before Lilly was born and listened to it non-stop. Then I thought I lost it. I had downloaded in on my iPod Touch before I had an iPhone. Then we gave my Touch to my BIL and he reset it. I wasn't sure how to get the album back since I didn't sync the touch before giving it to him (rookie mistake). I contacted apple but they couldn't find it. Turns out I gave them the wrong account because I found it via the new cloud business. And I found it about a week before Rosie was born which made it even more nostalgic.
  • Planning: My rose tattoo. With all the lilies I have on my arm I figured it was appropriate to stick a rose or two in there somewhere. I'll probably wait until this fall or winter to get it though because the idea of having to stay out of the sun and water (both recommended in the tattoo healing process) is unthinkable in Florida summers.
  • Wishing: There were about 5 more hours during the day. I would sleep for 2 of them and work for the other three. Or just sleep for all five. At least once a day I find my self saying It's _____ o'clock already!?!
Thanks as always to Dani for the inspiration for this post. 


  1. Baby wearing is amazing! The sling saved me in the first few months of my son's life. He could be screaming his head off, but as soon as he got in that sling he was content.

    1. They really are the best. Rosie is asleep in hers as we speak!

  2. Loved the article. You should check out the book Shepherding a Child's Heart if ou haven't already heard of it. Similar thoughts to the article, but goes into more detail. I loved the book.
