My sweet little Rosie. She is so expressive and silly. My favorite face she makes is the squish face. If you follow my instagram then this is old news for you. If not- hold onto your butts (name that movie)!

It all started because it was one of the first expressions she copied. I would scrunch my nose and sniff at her and she would mimic me. This face has been in my family for generations and has been known as the 'scrunch face'. Welp, I called it a 'squish face' and made a hash tag #dailysquish before realizing my mom brain called it the wrong thing. I was all 'AW MAN!' then 'whatev' and just went with it. Now she makes the face all the time. Sometimes I will catch her watching tv and randomly squishing at it. How I wish I could climb into her little brain. I'm kind of obsessed with instagram. I'm more obsessed with this face. If you are too feel free to follow along: #dailysquish.


Howdy. I haven't done one of these in a hot minute. Just to let you know I'm still alive and all- here's what I'm currenly up to:

listening to- rend collective experience. over and over and over. so good.

anticipating- the arrival of my knitting machine parts. remember when i used to make scarves and such? (let's not talk about the pictures because - i just can't even. redic) anyway- i stopped making them because my beloved and overused knitting machine went ka-put but i've finally ordered replacement parts. i'm super excited to get it back out and hear to the rhythm a scarf makes. it's super loud and beautiful. my husband doesn't agree about the beautiful part. 

drinking- water. and lots of it. i've been dehydrated like a mother- which i am. so there. 

loving- that i helped lilly make her first felt softie today. i cut and marked where to sew the felt then she sewed the whole thing up. when we started i was concerned that the whole process would be way over her head but she totally got it. i had to hold the felt together and occasionally return her attention to the task at hand but she totally finished it. i even asked if she wanted to finish tomorrow but she refused and plugged on. my crafty mommy heart is so so so proud.

also loving- rosie barking. we are working on animal sounds and she will pick up a stuffed wolf (close enough) and bounce it up and down while saying "AR AR AR AR". again- close enough. it is so wonderful -in the truest sense of the word- to see our children grow and learn. i love them so much.
