My aunt and I were talking about my blog the other day, and she told me that she really enjoys my “slice of life” posts best that just capture our random family happenings. I loved the term “slice of life”, so I’m going to run with it and stick that label on casual posts that are mainly just filled with pictures and blurbs of my little fam.
March 13th: Bath time is one of her favorite times of the day. I realized after I took this picture on our first night in Alabama that she didn’t have any bath toys, so I called to my dad to bring us a few. She was an even happier girl once she had a few things to play with.
March 15th: Hadley got to spend a few hours with two of her 2nd cousins. The top picture is from September and the bottom picture is six months later. It’s fun to see how much these two grew in six months.
March 16th: My parents really have no need to go buy new toys for Hadley when she comes to their house because apparently they’ve held on to many, many of our old favorites! They’ve gotten a real kick out of seeing her enjoy them as much as we used to.
March 16th: My brother came home for a few days to hang with us during his days off of work, and he played with Hadley from sun up to sun down. I was really impressed and really thankful for the time he spent with her! The cutest thing he did was go search through the garage for old balls and bats and take her into the backyard for over an hour to play with her. Now she’s obsessed with all kinds of basketballs, beach balls, etc. He’s the best!
March 24th: Hadley got a princess sticker pack from my friend Ashley, and she loves it! I took this picture to send to Ash yesterday.
March 24th: She’s being a little redneck baby and playing the driveway barefoot. She’s taking her new favorite ball for a ride.
March 24th: Clearly being a diva while sitting in my old rocking chair.
March 24th: I spontaneously painted her nails and toes yesterday, and she sat perfectly still while I painted them and blew on them. She was just completely in awe of what I was doing! I was dying last night over watching my baby drink a bedtime bottle with painted pink nails.
And here’s a few of my favorite videos from yesterday (you may have already seen them if you follow me on Instagram):
This may sound like total baby gibberish, but she’s very clearly (to me) saying Teddy. She’s been saying it a hundred times a day the last three days, and I’m just loving it.
This one is one of my favorite videos of her ever. She’s so calculated about everything she does! Kills me.
Finally, congratulations to Amanda Eilders for winning the Stitch Fix giveaway! Thanks to everyone for entering! I’ll definitely be doing more Stitch Fix giveaways on future posts!
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
