today

it's blizzarding over here. is that even a word? it should be.
and we're still sick, so it was a goof-off sort of day.

cupcakes and sprinkles were involved. also, sticky faces and tables.


elijah's been saying "oh, WOW!" and "ya-HOOhooo" a lot lately. 
the cupcakes, from the mixing bowl to the frosting being piped on, 
were given enthusiastic fanfare by one excited little helper. oh my word. 
he even said "hey, dats pre-eee nice" as he scooped his icing off with a tiny spoon.


coffee. i don't drink any less when i'm under the weather, but i take in a cuppa tea here and there.
i'm trying a new flavored coffee right now, folgers vanilla biscotti. so delicious. 
and my current favorite tea, lipton island peach mango.
even on sick days, i prefer to get mostly dressed, no matter what. even during blizzards.
also, all my pj pants are in the hamper.


for several months, we've been back to difficult bath times for eg.
tonight was a shining success. he let me clean him and he had tons of fun playing. 
such a wonderful relief to have this little victory today. praise jesus.

this day was loud and messy and lovely.
i hope your day was lovely, too.

  5. I hope you guys feel better soon.
    I just love to read about Elijah and all of his milestones. It makes me want to give you both a big fat hug. It amazes me that I have such happy feelings for people that I've never met in person. I love it. Weird?
    Love you Hannah girl.

  6. Those are the best-lookin' cupcakes ... mine would never be so cute.

    I'm the same way when I'm sick: as if I can fake myself into thinking I'm well just by getting dressed and carrying on. Rarely works! :)

  7. Hope you are feeling better, girl. And those little moments when something that is usually sooooo hard is fun and easy is just a plain and simple gift from God. : ) Love to you.

  11. Yay for a good bath time! One of mine fought bath time for like 9 months and would get so worked up that she'd puke. Yeah, doubly not cool. I hope more good baths follow!

  12. Sounds like the one on one during the sick days with your little guy has done him good: words to express his happiness and giving in to bath time...the love of a mama, there is nothing like.
