instagram | black and white, and read all over

elijah has been calling me 'mama' this week! pretty consistently, and super sweetly. he hasn't stopped running to 'charlie' yet though. and truly, i hope he never will.

another little ritual, spreading blankets and rolling each other up into cozy burritos. and laughing a lot, because hey, it's pretty funny :)

it rained for days and days. i was so surprised to find myself enjoying it. the best part is, there's green grass everywhere now! finally!

my street at night. one of my favorite sights.

you know those meals that require you to start prepping in the early afternoon? well, yesterday, i forgot. and naturally my first response to that realization was sweat pants and a fresh pot of coffee. i mean, if i'm gonna take it easy, i'm gonna go all out. so, it was quick and simple chicken with rice instead.

i'm really working on embracing the camera with elijah. he's been pretty excited about it lately! except for last night. less excited, more like "no. just no." and possibly he didn't appreciate my singing? this pic makes me laugh obnoxiously loud, because it reminds me of this skit

happy friday!
