Sweet memories

It seems like the days are passing by so quickly. There are so many things that I just want to soak in and remember because my kids are just growing up before my eyes. These are just a few random memories I want to remember forever.

Ava fights bedtime so hard, and one evening, she was sitting on the couch watching something on my iPad and I went to put Reed in bed and came back and found her like this just a minute later. IMG_6842

She wanted to take a picture with me one night and on a whim, she grabbed my face and kissed it. I LOVED this, especially because she did it all on her own.IMG_6865

One day last week I got a text from one of Reed’s teachers with this photo. I sat at my desk and cracked up! I love this silly boy and it made my day to see this!!IMG_6871

He has been fighting bedtime like CRAZY lately. He just doesn’t want to go to his bed. So this one night after he screamed in bed for a while, I let him come lay down on the couch. He was asleep almost instantly. I think realized he’s gotten so tall. I just can’t believe he’s so big. IMG_6929

We had a nice day of weather over the weekend and the kids wanted to play outside for a while. As we were out there, Ava said it was “sooooo hot” and went inside. The next thing I knew, she was outside in her bathing suit. Then she got her blanket and sunglasses. 5 going on 15?!IMG_6942

Getting a photo of them together is like pulling teeth. The face Reed is making in this photo is hilarious. He has no poker face. What you see is what you get with him!IMG_6945

Reed didn’t nap very well on Sunday. He woke up after a very brief nap and was still very cranky and whiny. So he snuggled up in my lap and fell back to sleep. It’s so rare that I get snuggles for him, so I put a blanket on and just sat there enjoying that rainy afternoon holding my sweet baby! I love how he put his hand on his little face.IMG_6994 IMG_6999 

I love having this blog to look back on memories. I read old posts sometimes and am amazed at how easy it is to forget. I’m so grateful for this little space and for the memories that fill it!


  1. I love that A went in and got her swimsuit on and then proceeded to lay in the sun, too funny!!! Your kids are adorable!

  2. so cute! Andrew has been fighting bedtime too and I have been rocking him for a bit before putting him to bed and that helps!
