InstaFriday

Snowflake

I love Fridays and sharing a glimpse of our week through my iphone photos. Absolutely love it…it’s like scrapbooking for lazy girls. In light of Asher’s “Failure to Thrive” scare, I took lots of evidence that he does, in fact, sit in a highchair with food on the tray. We found out that homeboy likes […]

Mommy & Me: Special Time

Construction Paper Clown Noses

Since Asher came six months ago, Jonah has needed some extra doses of special time with Mommy and Daddy. While he truly loves Asher, the process of becoming brothers has been hard. Finding our groove as a family of four hasn’t been easy. It isn’t something I have written much about, mainly because it has […]

InstaFriday: Six Months

Highchair

Asher is 6 months old today. SIX whole months. Um, THAT is half a year. How is that even possible? I mean, on the one hand, it feels like he’s been around much longer than six months when I think about colic and sleepless nights that no amount of coffee can help. But then, on […]

Asher on a very rought night

You know that feeling when you can’t get a baby to stop crying, no matter what you try… Yeah, that. Try feeling it for several months straight. It kinda stinks…in the worst way. It wreaks havoc on your mommy self-esteem. Rips it to shreds and then stomps on it repeatedly. Then, as if that wasn’t […]

Cousins

There’s just something about being a cousin…a connection. Even if you’re not together often, you pick up right where you left off. Your hearts share a language. No one has to tell you that you’re family or teach you how to be a cousin…it just comes naturally. Sure, you fight over toys or who will […]

Take Me Out To The Ballgame!

http://happybrownhouse.com

Over Memorial Day weekend we took Jonah to his first “official” ballgame! We’re lucky to have a Minor League team in Chattanooga, which is great for summer fun! We chose a night that would have fireworks after the game for an extra special treat. I’ll admit, we weren’t sure how he’d do with the fireworks. […]

An “Ordinary” Yard Sale Saturday…

We had a yard sale yesterday to give our debt snowball a little boost of extra momentum. We loaded everything up in Ray’s Papaw’s old beater truck & trailer and headed over to Granny’s yard. She gets more traffic than our subdivision. It was a lot of work, especially to load it up and set up at […]

Jonah says…

“You’re crackin’ me up, Momma!” 

Three…

Three years. Wow. I know it sounds so cliche’, but I swear yesterday I was feeling his first kick in my growing belly. I’m almost afraid to sleep tonight for fear that he’ll be graduating college when I wake up! Oh these days, these precious days. They slip away so fast. The tighter I try […]
