Papa started school again today, which is awesome and sucks all at the same time. It’s awesome because every semester is one semester closer to our future, but I’ve definitely enjoyed being able to spend time together the last few weeks. Plus he’s SUPER helpful with housework and that’s been a major perk. Today was weird, it’s too cold to play outside so I didn’t really know what to do with myself all day. Logan and I practiced pouring water from container to container and played a lot of cars. I’m pretty sure he’s having a growth spurt and he’s CRANKY about it so there’s a lot of kangaroo care going on.

I’m really excited, in a few weeks we’ll be starting some home improvement projects that have been on the to-do list for months and months. I doubt I’ll share too many photos, our house uhhh sucks but we’re going to make the best of it here until we can buy one of our own.

Logan’s nursery is about to become an honest to goodness bedroom, a Montessori styled toddler room to be exact. I may share that. Hopefully it will be so AWESOME that he’ll even sleep in it. Hah.

I’m in a pretty positive place right now, which is kind of new. I can’t wait for the seasons to come.


I’ve also been really on top of our food, I made my first ferment (dilly beans) which was hugely successful so I’m fermenting sauerkraut now. Hopefully it will be
equally successful. I also made really good bread. Not just okay bread, really really good bread. I’m so proud.



I didn’t even know what day it is until about an hour ago. I have been up, sick, for more than 24 hours. I am such a humongous baby when I’m sick, and I’m so thankful it doesn’t happen often. Today is day 3 of my couch surfin’ and with luck it’s the last day. Luckily Papa was home all day yesterday and part of today to get things done and make sure Logan was uh, dressed and fed and cared for, but I cried and cried when he left today. There are very few moments when I wish I had a nanny or a babysitter or something like that but this is definitely one of them. Logan is just SO high energy and I feel awful not being able to keep up with him when I know he wants me to. On top of which, I don’t want to get him sick again (he got me sick but his was much more mild and I’m not really sure where we picked it up). He’s napping now and I’m
praying we have a smooth, peaceful evening. Fingers crossed.


Have a great weekend!!

A new bird in a new year.

Hi WordPress! We’ve heard really good things about you and we’re really excited about using this new platform. On top of which, I think we’re going to move from a baby focus to more food (with a little bit o’ baby, of course). This year promises to be quite exciting for us- a new conviction for local, whole foods AND learning how to be parents of a toddler!


Thanks for following along!
