FIRST TOOTH

coop lost his first tooth
around these parts, we loose teeth late

coop's seven

here's his toothless smile
a little awkward because he's trying to show his missing tooth :)

he lost it at school while chomping on a apple
the school nurse gave him a little tooth treasure chest


kinda sad i missed the first lost tooth
although
i get the icks from anything tooth/blood related
so, i guess it all worked out

happy weekend!

A 10 YEAR OLD GIRL + AN IPOD = ????


this is what happens when a ten year old girl
receives an ipod for christmas


asking daddy for a yorkie puppy


putting a puppy curse on daddy



expressing her devotion to one direction


a talking kitten video


a sweet email

it's such a different world for this generation.
when i was a kid, i could have ever dreamed 
of this technology.

good or bad?
a good question

happy friday!

HAPPY 4TH BIRTHDAY UNKIE!

on sunday my baby turned 4
he's my last, so every year that passes
weighs a little heavy on my heart

he's a joy
he's difficult
he's funny
he's talkative
he loves big
he hates big
he's the greatest kid 
ever 
(well, along with his brother and sister)

happy 4th birthday max!


years past.... :(





















in honor of your 4th birthday 
here are 4 things i love about you....

1 - your funny, husky voice
2 - how much you love to talk... to everyone, 
when i say everyone... i mean it!!!!
3 - you're still my baby and let me cuddle and smooch you
4 - how much you love your family, especially 
your big brother and sister!

one more thing... just because
5 - you're a little sneaky sneaker! i've never known a 3/4 year old
who smuggles snacks out of the pantry into the playroom 
in his UNDERWEAR!! 

i love you max! your imagination is endless and i love
to just sit back and watch. you're growing and learning  so quickly. 
i pray time slows, so i can enjoy your childhood longer.
if i'm ever crabby or in need of a smile, i know i can count on you my love.
you completed our family. you're our little caboose.
and what a cute caboose you have:)
i love you to the moon and back my darling maxwell!
xoxo - mommy

IT'S HERE!

is it just me 
or is restoration hardware the 
quickest shipper? ever.

earlier this week, i shared my new purchase
this lovely floor task lamp....
20th Century Torpedo Task Floor Lamp in Vintage Brass - via
to remind you.
here is my before photo.

and here is the after...


a little closer...

 and another with a underwear clad max... trying to look cool.

kinda excited about this lamp.
if you couldn't tell.

it's the perfect match to this lamp
on the other side of the family room.


i'm kinda obsessed with brass lamps!
happy friday!

UNPLUGGED.

the kids are unplugged
until further notice



i see that someone scribbled on my sign in protest.

they need to find new forms of entertainment.

this mommy is sick and tired of computer game noises
filtering though the house 
AND
fighting over who's turn it is. :)

STILL OBSESSED.

i'm still obsessed with the eames rocker
one of my favorite furniture pieces!
it comes in many colors, and works in a variety of rooms and settings.
it's clean, simple and classic.

it works well in nearly any room.
i prefer the white over other colors.


one day i will get one
(and a yorkie puppy) :)
