life lately

I tried taking some pictures with my kids the other day but Louisa was the only one who was kind of cooperating. She's such a little baby bunny and I love her. She has recently learned how to do this squinty, cheesy smile whenever I smile at her and it is so funny to me (not in these pictures so you'll just have to take my word on it).
Louisa has also recently graduated from her baby tub (I know, at 13 months) and now she sometimes takes a tub with the boys. They like to dump water on her head and splash her a lot so her baths are typically very short, but she thinks she's such a big girl! Will and Fritz continue to dote on her.
Last week, we went on a drive and ended up at Gas Works Park in Seattle. We climbed to the top of the hill, ate pizza (locals: what's up with Ballard Pizza Co.? We heard it was epic and it was NOT!) and let the kids roam around while we enjoyed this gorgeous view before sunset. Seattle is a gorgeous place in the summer.
As glorious as this summer has been in Seattle, I am ready for fall. A couple of nights ago, I woke up at around 4 a.m. to help one of my kids (can't even remember who because I was still half asleep). After I tucked them back in, I went to the bathroom and we had the window open for some fresh air. The wind was blowing into the house and I felt that "crisp" Autumn air which made me feel giddy with excitement. I have visions of Christmas in our new house and I can't wait! This picture, in particular, is really making me feel jazzed about the holidays.


  1. The holidays!!!!! 😍 I'm so excited for fall. Bring on soup season!

  2. I completely understand. We just moved into our house and I keep picturing the Christmas tree by the fire place.
