I Heart Naptime

Boy, do I love naptime. Especially on days like today.

Lincoln has been a bit of a booger today. A bit more challenging than his usual happy, go-lucky self. And I am a bit more tired than usual. And freaking sore from yoga--so my patientce is... well, it kinda sucks.

But then I just saw these, and I giggled.

Because I just love this guy!

He is just such a rad little dude.

And even though I want him to sleep for a long while still, I kinda can't wait until he gets up.

Do You Have A Minute???

...or maybe 10 minutes to spare?

Because I haven't posted on this blog for a while. I love this blog. I really, really do. It's my family history. But sometimes I get too busy living life, and the documenting of it takes the back seat.
Which it should.
But I don't want to forget.
So here goes nothing...

I went to beautiful California the weekend before last. My sis, who just happens to be my favorite chick in the world, had a baby. And me and that little dude, Jackson Stone, share a birthday. He had me at hello.

My sis is a rockstar. (As are all women who birth babies because it is not an easy job.) Kelsey is, of course, so beautiful. Yet she never looked more beautiful, or at peace, than she did on this day. I was so honored to be there. One of the biggest joys of my life.
Let's all convince her to have another because: 1.) I want to be there again and 2.) her kids are freaking adorable.

I also got to hang with my favorite Coco while in Cali. It made me miss my kids less actually. She is a gem.

Meanwhile back at the ranch... (Did I just say that??)
Lila is overwhelmingly creative and loves to get messy. This girl thinks outside of the box. If fact, I think she just looks at the box and laughs in it's face. Also--she is obsessed with Lincoln's suspenders.

*Suspenders courtesy of the most-fashionable Jett Nugent.

The kids are fully potty-trained which is AWESOME. They have been fully potty-trained since February, but I just love how this has made our life so much easier.

And it's hysterical when they ask Brian or I to close the door so they can have 'privacy'. Oddly enough though, they don't mind each other being in the washroom with them. Twins.

*WASHROOM was used in honor of my Canadian niece who reads my blog!

We met the Easter Bunny last weekend. It went something like this...

Sunday night is ice cream night at Casa Swish. We go out for this treat each and every week. I know it's hard to tell who enjoys this tradition more from the pics below...


The twins are totally BFF's. Lila likes Lincoln to help her up. What. A. Diva. I figure it's teaching him how to be a gentleman.

Dad's rule.

We got a Easter package from Grammie today. When we go down to Cali in May it will have been over 3 months since the kids have seen Grammie + Pops. That is a long freaking time. But Grammie + Pops send very special treasures in the mail. Have you seen a package from my mom??? My friends in college have, and let me tell ya, they are unforgettable.

This was Brian's birthday present to me. I love it.

We went swimming tonight. I love this gal.

Hope you all are having a fabulous week!

2 TWO Year Olds

2 TWO year olds are....


Exhilarating, but exhausting.


***And yes, we realize all that hair Lila rocks makes her look 3. She isn't of course! She's barely 2.***

The Linc-man



Mama's boy + Dada's best guy.

Curious, handsome little turd.

Oh, Lila

Oh man, this girl. This girl! My heart just explodes for her.

I could just squeeze and kiss on her all damn day if she would let me.

But that might be weird.

But I still would.

(If she would let me.)

Let me just say, she is a little slice of heaven to me.
