Wee Man: A Birthday Letter

(We’ve endured a series of curveballs, but I am determined to write this boy a birthday letter. We are going on four months now…) A Birthday Letter Dear Son, Happy Birthday (ish). This birthday letter is long overdue. Five whole years you’ve been taking in air. You with the impossible grin and your daddy’s eyes peering up at me at 5 am. From the moment you exploded onto the scene, all red and squalling, you’ve been living your life at max capacity. It is...

Video …

I promised baptism video for family. Someone please tell my dad to start watching around the 5:50 mark. Also – cutest moment happens around 10:12.  Wee Man thinks everyone is saying “Hi” …. So, it turns out movingpreparationsslashpurgingslashfurniturebuilding leaves very little time for blogging. More coming soon, I promise …. Love. ~M....

Strangely Dim ….

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” ~Matthew 6:19-21 Well. I feel like I’ve gone ten rounds and I’m climbing back in the ring for another round …. I went around telling...

Happy Birthday Wee Man!

Wee Man is one today! Already …. Happy Birthday!! You were born three hundred and sixty five days ago in Alaska, in a blizzard. Today you are a teething mess (working on number 8) and the light of my life. The second man-person I’ve ever been wildly in love with. You laugh … a lot. You are ticklish like daddy. You love music, you start bouncing …. usually on beat …. whenever it comes on. You are going through a...

Bow Ties and Birdies.

Crafting joy. $.99 felt, two hair clips, a hot glue gun, and this tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets = Hipster Wee Man. To. Die. For. And because that’s not enough, I spent three hours on Sunday night, inappropriately focused, of course, felting a bird. That’s right. Because I don’t have a million other things to do. Totally worth it. Handfuls of roving wool, one felting needle, small amount of foam (helpful for not stabbing oneself … ), and this tutorial...

In the wind

I’m feeling a little lost without P. here. In the wind if you will. Oh yeah, he’s not here. I am mortified that my last post was July 3rd – TONS of things have happened in between. Good things – J. turned three, we’ve had a few sonograms of TootieJoBlair Churundolo – oh yeah – I’m pregnant too (and we like to name our unborn children outrageously terrible things until they pop out). We sold the house (without owing any...
