Morning Ritual

I usually wake up before Squeak and get ready for the day. As soon as she pops up, I am ready. Stewart beats me into her room and always wants the first kiss. She has the best wild hair. Wild hair, don't care. She is soooooo sweet and funny in the morning. I just love every inch of her. I look forward to her waking up EVERY morning!!! Such a sweet, sweet time. Xoxo-BLC


Stew is smart.

Smart, smart, smart dog. Xoxo-BLC


Aunt Ash

Aunt Ash come ALL the way to US to visit and we are SOOO excited!!! She is so much fun and it is so fun catching up with her. She is just one of those friends where you pick up right where you left off just like it was yesterday. Ash is such a special friend to me and I loooove her. Squeak and Aunt Ash together melted my heart. They just looooved each other. We were so thrilled to have and didn't want to let her leave. Please come visit again soon Aunt Ash!!! Xoxo-BLC


Saturday Happies


 We live for Saturdays right now. All day with Squeak is just the best. She is so much fun. She is officially on the move and into everything. I love that she scatters her toys everywhere. She LOVES to play. She loves other babies. She even is learning to SHARE: baby L is wearing her bow. Good job Squeak! We took these babies to our neighborhood festival and it was loads of fun. Saturdays, we love you!!! Xoxo-BLC


These days ...

Our dishwasher sure does look different these days. :) Xoxo-BLC

Squeak is NINE months old!!! Time is flyyyyying by and I hate to sleep or blink. I just don't want to miss a minute of her. She looooves to clap, wave, be silly, and can say: mama, dada, and baba. We love her the MOST!!! Xoxo-BLC  #thesqueakmonthly

Maya Angelou's Buttermilk Biscuits

The world lost a lovely lady today: Maya Angelou. I love so much about her. Her life work. Her purposefulness. Her gentleness. I could keep going. Above are her buttermilk biscuits from her cookbook Hallelujah. My favorite Maya Angelou quote: "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Xoxo-BLC


I ♥ Stewart

He is such a snugglebug, heartmelter. Xoxo-BLC


Memorial Day

Squeak loves Memorial Day!!! Today and always, we thank those who served and their families for their sacrifice for our freedom and our country. You are missed and will never be forgotten. Godspeed. Xoxo-BLC


Lake Days

Squeak's first trip to the lake!!! It's a success, minus the boat ride (which had more to do with her lifevest than anything else). She is still princess of the lake with that sweet flower crown. She is so much fun and it is the most exciting watching her explore this world. We love her to the moon and back. Xoxo-BLC


When in Rome ...

We are at Happy and Gigi's house having a ball. Squeak stayed with her grandparents while we hit the town for a friend's 30th birthday party. Such a fun-filled day. Xoxo-BLC

PS: BIG day today ... Squeak has enough hair for a BOW!!! :)


Happy Girl

This girl is at Happy's and she is HAPPY!!! Xoxo-BLC


Husband's Gooone Fishing ...

Miller is there and he is having FUN. Xoxo-BLC


Sunday Happies

That smile. Those LEGS!!! I just love every inch of her. Xoxo-BLC


ATL + Cousins + Baby Shower = ♥

I am helping a college bestie Apsy's baby shower in ATL and I couldn't miss the opportunity to see my sweet baby cousins. They are home for the summer and its rare to catch up with all these girls at once. It was sooo wonderful to squeeze them and chit chat over lunch. I jetted off to Apsy's baby shower sans baby Squeak and it was woooonderful to celebrate her. We are sooo excited for this sweet life she and her family will be welcoming soon. We cannot wait to meet her soooon!!! Xoxo-BLC


We love the ocean.

Squeak loooves the beach. We will keep her in this family - she clearly belongs!!! Our weather today started out beautiful and around lunchtime turned into a rain shower. I grabbed little Squeak and b-lined for the condo. Rain or shine, I would rather be at the beach than ... anywhere else. We had the best afternoon inside and this girl-only time is just what the doctor ordered. Squeak isn't the best sharer: she just wants what Baby K has (Exhibit A: her pacifier just tastes better). So, starting today, we are working on sharing. These sweet sisters are VERY good examples! We ordered in and had a greaaaaaat day enjoying the calm amongst the storm outside! Xoxo-BLC
