this week.



Daddy and Silas time. 

My new Chubby Stick lip balm by Clinique came in the mail. I think I need a few more colors.

Fresh flowers from a husband who does a really awesome job of loving me. 

This boy. Oh, this boy.

The past few weeks, this parenting thing has gotten easier, bit by bit. Not that it's "easy" now by any stretch of the imagination, but at least it's been a good while since I've cried out of exhaustion. Silas is getting to be a ton of fun to be around. His smile and stares are pretty enthralling and watching his personality emerge is more fun than I even imagined. Hearing his Daddy's voice is sure to elicit a smile and he's still a big fan of the bouncer. 

With the days getting (a bit) cooler, Chris' schedule getting easier and a trip home for Thanksgiving around the corner, things are pretty sweet around here. If only I could find time to pick up my paintbrush, I think life would be close to perfect, but I know that time will come eventually.

  10. The days do get easier, once you figure it out. I remember floundering for the first 3 months before the baby and I got into a good routine. It didn't help that we moved when she was 8 weeks old and lived in hotels and guest rooms for awhile. It was rough. Now she's 9 months, crazy, difficult, but easy.

  11. It's nice to see someone on a blog admitting that parenting does get easier! Not that any of us are experts EVER, of course, but I can totally relate to the nice feeling of becoming a little more accomplished as time goes by. I feel like many (myself included) spend a lot of time crying for help on our blogs, but every now and then... let's admit we do learn, babies do grow and become easier to understand, and that overall this is joy!

  12. It's been so long since I've been in the blogging world, but at least I have your tweets and instagram to keep up :) Silas is absolutely adorable! I wish you the best now that you're a parent. I can't imagine the feeling yet, but it looks like you are doing amazingly!
