so. elijah has strep throat, and let me tell you. he is not interested at all in taking antibiotics.
pray for us in that, please? thanks:)

that's the bad news. the great news is, we've been having an ok week! wanna see?

coffee, muffins and a chill kid in the morning? yes please!

psalm 118, so encouraging!

summer means music blasting from the town square. 
it's hard to tell how good or bad it is from inside. i stepped out the other night to check. 
yep. it was horrible.

an upside to a sickly little one is mos def the cuddles. 
elijah doesn't sit still much any other time, so i am loving this time, if you must know :)

beautiful evenings make for sweet walks with my boys by the river. 

i tried to take a photo with elijah. yeah.

our little city has happy little flags all through downtown. puts a smile on your face, you know?
do you get sentimental over the beautiful red, white and blue?
this girl and this girl love our land of the free. to celebrate, they are hosting something super fun. visit them. #godblesstheus

ok, sweet ivy niece. you have cat to be kitten me right meow with that face!
i babysat her this week, and she screeched with joy and made that face the entire time. hilarious!

who has the best sponsors? i do, obviously. 
my sweet sponsor friend shannon sent me that cute anchor necklace!

elijah loves being up high. i of course tell him to get down from the bookshelf. after i get a photo really quick.
and notice his sweet shirtless style, with argyle babyleg on one arm. oh yes.

another photo attempt. more succussful than before. i love my little snotty nosed boy!

yesterday elijah napped from 4-7pm. i just let it happen, he is sick, it was necessary. 
when patrick came home from work, at 8:30pm, elijah begged for his help in getting dressed. 
last easter's outfit. ha.

he fell asleep at 11:43pm. 

what did y'all do this week? any weekend plans?
