🤩 With stars in her eyes she said to me, “You know what mom, I had plans to be the first woman on the moon but daddy told me that mission is already scheduled. So I decided I’ll just be the first person that walks on Mars instead.”

And you know what? With the amount of conviction in her little voice, I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if this is the photo they’re flashing on tv years from now as her rocket takes off to Mars 🚀✨

9 Months ❤️of our rosy cheek Josie😊

She has so many fun little quirks right now that I am just so in love with. The full-arm-extension clap. Her deep throaty giggle. The adorably coy way she hides her face against me and peeks out. How she still sings herself to sleep. 

She’s not quite officially crawling but definitely gets where she wants to go by any means necessary. 

She’s such a cuddle bug and I melt every time she puts her head on my shoulder or runs her little hand through my hair.

Her favorite toys right now are books, bath boats, drum, and anything she can bang together.

She loves “I’m going to get you” and tickle games, peek-a-boo, knocking down blocks, and putting herself right in the middle of whatever the big kids are doing.

This month has been tough. A big one for food allergies. A completely backwards month for sleep. And an exasperating month as we try to calm her eczema flares.

Always happiest in my arms and I’m enjoying every squeeze because i have a feeling it’s not long before she’s zooming off on her own.

I love you, my little Josie Lu! 💗 It feels like we’ve been going in circles for the last month with allergists, scratch tests, blood labs, food challenges, and more food challenges. And finally here we are: content. 

We have some answers and a plan that will keep us on a safe and steady path for now and I’m grateful to feel a sense of relief and optimism that I don’t often feel as a long time allergy mom.

Josie passed both her baked milk and baked egg challenges, making it possible to keep baked products in her diet which will hopefully lead to tolerance of other forms in the long run 🤞🏻

Thank you, as always, for following along, sending love and kind words, and praying for my sanity when I’m stuck in a small food challenge room for hours upon hours with a mobile baby 🤪😘

I love you, my little...

Math, but make it sweet 💗💜

At the rate things are going, I expect Harper to be learning calculus by next month so I figured we’d have a little counting fun while we can still snack on the equations 😋

Here’s a quick peek at some of the preschool & kinder math activities I’m going to do with the kids this week - Grab the free printable on my blog if you want to join in!❣️

And since we’ve no place to go...❄️

The snow this week has done wonders to reset our mid-winter fatigue. It was a much needed break from our gloomy day monotony to have a reason to get out in the fresh, crisp, air and play 🤗! Pulling the three of them piled in the sled today was just about the cutest and just what I needed 🥰

And since we’ve no place...

I made the kids some ✨fancy✨ XOXO Dough valentines this year and if you watch my stories you’ll see that um, oops, I already gave it to them 🙈🥰 In my defense, it was a much more fun and festive way to practice spelling words this morning 🙃 {recipe on my blog & Reels!}

Rice Krispie Treat Ghost Pops

Rice Krispie Treats, but make it spooky 👻. There are a lot of things I look forward to during the holidays, but festive treats are hard to beat. I made these adorable Rice Krispie Treat ghost pops for Harper’s Halloween party at school last year and she requested to make another batch this year to enjoy at home! They’re a quick and easy dessert to make with your kids (warning: things do tend to get pretty sticky!) or you can wrap them in a snack bag for a fun addition to a Boo Basket. And I promise I won’t tell if you only make a few for your kids and eat the rest of the pan yourself because they’re just that good!
