|at the aquarium. i also have lots of pictures of fish and turtles|
other than that, we've just been taking care of the girls and working. i think i'm starting to get my head-above-water with work and hopefully june will get easier soon (more on that...). i'm hoping to start walking with the girls everyday, i think the outdoors will do me some good. we spent some time at the park this morning. the weather is cool on some mornings, a welcome change, and so we've resumed our family walks in the park which we've missed so much.
~ the little one:
has started saying "kitty-cat" "puppy" "help" "i did it" "these" "book" and "what else?"
she will also say "party pooper" if you ask her
|yes she is eating ravioli and mixed veggies. don't judge!|
we started buying her pull-ups now. she's very excited about them--so potty training is imminent.
the biggest development of all is that little zu turns two on monday! how can it be?
~ the littlest:
June had her 2 month check up a couple weeks ago. she's 12lbs and 24.5 inches long--55th percentile in weight and 98th percentile in height. 98th! oh my girls are both going to be gloriously tall!
|tummy time, the girls most favorite game right now|
also, june is still a pretty fussy baby. she is still having tummy issues, likely from switching in between formula and breastfeeding so much (we're doing about fifty/fifty right now). i think maybe weaning her will help though, so i might start trying that in the next couple weeks.

you have to be willing to waste your time | the stanza
you were not made for comfort | carrots for michaelmas
I think about the great and uncomfortable work I have been given to do– nourishing the bodies and minds of my children, participating as a co-creator of life, learning to love my family, learning to love my Lord. I think about the discomfort of being honest with myself, learning to examine my heart and really see my sin instead of lying to myself about it. It’s all so terribly uncomfortable, because it requires me to sacrifice my own desires. It’s painful. But this is why God made me. So that I could decrease and Christ in me could increase. So that I could discover who I really am
chokey chokey choke choke | rachel jankovic
When there are choking hazards on the floors of our soul, you can trust your children to find them. You can trust them to keep on sitting in them until they actually do choke. Be sure your sins will find you out, and be sure your children will find them out first.
