Catching Up

Wow. It seems like I’ve been gone from home for weeks, and absent from my blog for over a week now. Between focusing on relaxing and rebuilding my marriage on this vacation, blogging has been so far away from my thoughts. And then we got home, and back to our normal routine, right?

Wrong…back to chaos. My poor darling has been teething like crazy for over a week. And has 4…that’s right…4 molars coming in at once. So while I’m trying to unpack our suitcases and catch up on laundry (which I loathe even more than packing them in the first place), she’s clinging to me like crazy and is on a sleep-strike. Which makes the entire process take three times as long. Ugggghhhh.

Needless to say as I type this I am enjoying a well-deserved and perhaps over-sized glass of wine. It’s the little things…

So while I prepare the myriad of posts I have coming up, just thought I would let everyone know we are home and we’re relatively good. At least we’ll be much better once these damn teeth finish poking through.

And now you’re much deserved moments of cuteness…

When we arrived in Phoenix we discovered we had been given the wrong key and were stranded outside our condo waiting for two hours.

Monk was more than happy to entertain herself in the front courtyard.


Love those feet. Just love.


Dirty butt. This kid will never be clean again, I’m pretty sure of that.


Stinky silly face. She was so thrilled and happy to be playing outside for a change.


Monk the Daredevil wanted to climb on and walk on everything. Did I mention she will never be clean again?


Making an escape…




And leaving Big Bird behind. Poor Bird… More soon folks! Happy Earth Day to all of you!!


  1. As head of the welcome back committee (self-appointed,of course) I want to say…we missed you! Your vacation looks like heaven. I hope we get to hear lots more.
    Does C have an amber teething necklace? I swear that’s how we survived the molars.

      Thanks for the welcome girl! Vacation was amazing. Just what we needed. Can’t wait to share more stories and pictures.

      I forgot all about her amber necklace! She kept pulling on it so I took it off. Will be putting that immediately back on!

      Also here is the name of my blog designer. You’ll love her, she’s really takes her time and she’s a WAHM, which I love to support!

    Welcome back, babe! Monk’s Bob Marley dress looks adorable on her. I love those feet, too. I wish I could’ve been there… sigh… I’m super glad you’re home.

    • Alexia says:

      Isn’t the dress great! It fits perfectly right now. I need to get a good shot of the front with her face. Will work on that. And her feet? Delicious! Can’t wait to see you tomorrow!!

    Cute pics! I am obsessed with my own daughter’s tiny toes. She lets me paint her toenails and I kiss her feet at least 5x a day, LOL!
