Running my first encounter. Where I almost got a TPK on the first encounter. New GM learns the hard way that party composition is very important.
This one moves as much as her sister did, which makes getting a picture of her gummy grin that is (a) in focus and (b) has no motion blur is really, really difficult.
AJ’s toys all lined up so she can give them a baff.
I don’t usually like posting bath time photos on the interwebz because of reasons, but this was too adorable not to share. She swaddled Tiana in a wash cloth, tucked her into a cup, rocked her, and her sang her lullabies.

Mama cleaning out the ice maker turns into sensory play. #toddlermama #Montessori
This usually has 2-3, sometimes 4 dirty pots on it. Hubby is probably going to wonder what he did to piss me off, because I typically only clean it when I’m angry. Today I had a wild idea: if I wash the pots, they’d be clean & I’d be able to use the stove too. Crazy, huh? #mybeautifulmess
I pulled out some TP rolls for her to play with. So what do they become? Bracelets. :P Or maybe they’re bracers. Yeah, let’s go with that. :D
I’ve had this steamer trunk for a while. Finally got it open & am going to attempt to turn it into an ottoman.
My name starts with… #fmsphotoaday

I’m tired of the carefully curated image projected on Instagram. This is the start of what I hope will be a series of real life documentation. I’m pretty sure there are four loads of laundry in this pile, some of which has been waiting to be folded for at least a week. #mybeautifulmess
I’m fairly certain one of these sinks was empty yesterday. :-/ #mybeautifulmess
8/5 Early. Not. After our long drive home yesterday, both girls slept in this morning. Mama is very grateful. #fmsphotoaday
I not sleepy…
Things I found in my bed: a mad baby, the foot book, a package of wipes, and a ladle. #momlife

8/6 This means a lot to me. “Prototype” by @renovatuspastor. The kind of book that will make you pause at the end of the first page. #fmsphotoaday
The dice were all placed on the table with care, in hopes a GM soon would be there.
@instagram is teaching me to see the world around me differently. I cannot explain just how much it helps me to see the beauty in the every day. Thank you for creating a platform and a community dedicated to helping us to see. This was taken on a hot day after my daughter had made an awful mess of herself and the living room. Through a daily mission created by @colorsoftheweek, I found an opportunity to document this stage of our life, instead of just complaining about it.
8/7 A sign I am finally recovering. The bottom of my kitchen sink. #littlevictories #fmsphotoaday
Having our community group leader over to watch the first preseason game. Living room looks like this. Both girls are in a mood. This is where real life is, y’all.
2 o’clock. Trying to convince Kaylee to sleep so mama can enjoy her toddler free afternoon. #fmsphotoaday

Summer sunsets are the best.
Beverage. Olde Dragon’s Breath. Micro-brewed root beer from the Renaissance Faire. #fmsphotoaday
20. Hot. Baby won’t sleep unless she’s touching me. Add in a laptop & it’s pretty uncomfortable. #fmsphotoaday
Our Warriors swimming through the mud pit.
Our finishers! Way to go, Team 413!
I’m two weeks old. I don’t need to sleep. Perhaps not, but mama does.

Oh those eyes…
Farewell party to two of AJ’s favorite people. Phil & Nicole, you will be greatly missed out here. Many blessings on the new adventure.
21. Fave food. An inconvenience turned into a blessing. #fmsphotoaday Our church is helping us with meals, and this meal giver went out of her way to find gluten free cookies so I could have a treat. #blessed
Thai iced coffee, made from the leftovers of my morning cuppa.
Pong-pong safely tucked into Kaylee’s basket.
24. D is for … diaper. #fmsphotoaday
25. Ground. The amount of carnage that one tiny toddler can cause is astounding. #fmsphotoaday
Oh, just laying here, practicing tracking. nbd.
