Baby boy picture

Look at that grown up baby boy! I seriously can’t believe how freakin’ big he is getting… 

Currently this baby boy is babbling like crazy. It’s so fun to hear all the shouts and trills that come out of his mouth! I’m very grateful that he’s a fairly low maintenance kid so far. 

Of course now that I’ve said that out loud I probably cursed myself…

It’s been such a joy to spend this time with him, and easing back into work has felt really good (though kind of stressful to juggle all the balls in the air, you know?). I still feel like I am being pulled in about 50 different directions at any given moment. That’s probably just motherhood though? I don’t know, you tell me fellow mamas!

song of the week

Song of the Week is MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name) by Lil Nas X. This video is absolutely bonkers weird and was too distracting so I didn’t even register the song the first time I heard it. Now that I’ve heard it without the video distracting me, I am actually super into it!
