6 Months

Nick and I got to enjoy an early anniversary gift to ourselves this weekend. We went to see Jewel in concert Sunday night, and it was incredible. She was so good, and put my attempts to sing her songs to shame. It was just her and her guitar and it was perfect.

We got to go with another couple, our friends/cousins. She was sweet enough to take a few pictures of us to capture the evening and also to document my 6 month pregnancy picture, as I turned 6 months that day. I had my appointment today and everything is going along smoothly.

Almost 5 years!

Toddler Suspenders

I'm not big on suits for Ryder. They're cute and all, but they just seem too formal for a 1 1/2 year old. I had been having a hard time finding cute church clothes/accessories for him, so decided I'd have to start making my own.

I found this simple tutorial on making baby/toddler suspenders and it proved to be super effective!

They're not adjustable, but they're easy enough to make in different sizes.

 Caught him in such a cute pose! He looks so snazzy!

It's not easy to catch them on camera at this age, they move so much!

The back.

So easy and so cute!

A Little Bit Of Spring

It's been beautiful around these parts these last few weeks, and the plants are showing it. All the trees have been blooming and the wildflowers are popping up everywhere. Our garden is no exception.

Peach tree.

Pear tree.

Lettuce, radishes, onions, spinach and kale (there's more but you can't really see them yet).

Lettuce, spinach and asparagus harvested. The asparagus got a little big on me, but they should still taste good. You've got to get out there every day to catch them!

Our blackberry bushes are blooming like crazy.

Strawberries. We're getting quite a few more this year than last year.

I'll be planting the rest of the garden soon and we'll keep waiting as stuff keeps growing!

5 Months

While visiting our local library, we decided to take advantage of the spring flowers and snap a few pictures.


This is how Ryder is all the time anymore - running.


The top picture is from two years ago when I was pregnant with Ryder. The bottom one was from today. Things are going along fine with the baby, it's moving and dancing around all the time. I'm over halfway through! This last half is going to fly by, next thing I know we'll have another kid!
