We hang out like this all the time. Just layin’ around, talkin’ about our feelings.

The look I got from Ben when he saw that I got Baby Love a chocolate chip whoopie pie from Fell’s for her birthday dinner…that look, like he wanted to pull my eyelashes out…one at a time.

image

Love was SO excited that she blew out the candles all by herself. She cheered and squealed like a little piglet 🙂

Tess’s doggies, Khaki and Corduroy.

Just running around singing, “Haaaaappy…rainbow…” All while making a shape of a rainbow with her arms. She is, seriously, our little unicorn.

Miss Sasha took the kids to the aquarium in Boston for Love’s birthday.

I would pay good money to find out what she’s saying to Bode right here. And, to hear what’s going on in Bode’s head.

Bode looks like a teenager in this picture. What is that?

“Awww, c’mon, Morgan. Ben said we were both supposed to put this thing together.”

Totally normal to walk through Tilly’s Market with these guys gettin’ after my quads, and me walking around like a robot being jumped with cables.

image

So, either one quad is far more messed up than the other, or I don’t have the pads positioned right.

Mike G. showed up with his squad to do some more work on the training area project. Pure entertainment.

Best. Outfit. EVER.

Moving the garden back and spreading out the stones for the cement.

Our sweet friend, Kayla, sent us these incredible ducks from her travels abroad…and, we couldn’t have been more grateful or happier when we opened the box when it showed up in the mail. Not only are they two of the coolest ducks we’ve EVER seen, but it is one of the most thoughtful gifts we’ve ever gotten from a friend we haven’t seen in far too long 🙂 Thank you SO much, Kayla. You are a truly special person. XO

Green smoothie. NAILED it.

You can never have enough ducks 🙂

“GOOD MORNING, BABY HARLEY LOVE!!! IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!!! YOU’RE TWWWOOOOO!!!” She looks thrilled.

Found this on Jonah’s phone when I woke up this morning.

I am almost speechless.  I just love this child so much.  And, to be so lucky to be Baby Harley Love’s Mommy is truly one of the things I am most grateful for in this beautiful life I have.  She brings me so many smiles, laughs, warm fuzzies, and is just constantly entertaining me by letting me watch her with this warm grin on my face while I watch her thinking to myself, “This is likely my last baby…the last time I will watch one of my children skip around, try to talk to me without actually speaking like the rest of us, and have that pudgy little body that fills your hands with squishy skin.

And, I love June 13th because I get to reminisce all day about the day my last baby was born, the one that Ben says “balances the family”: finally going to the hospital, the doctors telling us we were having a baby that night, the contractions, Maya texting me all night from home, Ben’s face when she was finally born, Elaine Metcalf holding my hand and looking at me like it was the first time she’s seen a women go through delivery…in the sweetest way possible, finally going to sleep the next morning, nursing her for the first time, laying in a twin sized bed with Ben and our new baby girl, watching her swaddled up in her little bed, and when the family first met her.

I love this baby, and I love her birthday…probably more than she ever will.
