where did you come from?
Ari communes with nature

Best not interrupt
What was I thinking keeping these in the pantry? They clearly go here now.
Today the hubs turns 33! WOW! I met him when we were in middle school and we’ve been together for 13 years. flip. we old.
In typical Luke fashion, he doesn’t want me to get him anything for his birthday, as he ‘needs nothing.’ Being married to an anti consumerist/minimalist can get a bit challenging this time of year.
I got him a book anyway. It’s full of dense theory about capitalism and technology, which totally floats his boat, so hopefully he’ll overlook the fact that he got a present on his birthday (cuz who wants that!? YUCK)
Violet’s doctor said to let Violet cry during tummy time so that she can get more time on her tummy. I don’t think I can do that. As soon as she starts wailing I get extreme anxiety and start crying. I know she needs tummy time but she absolutely hates it.

Yes! We never did tummy time and my my baby sat, crawled, and walked on schedule. Now at 17 months old he is ahead in gross motor control, and can already throw a ball, kick a ball, walk up and down stairs unassisted, and jump off the ground on two feet
Tummy time isn’t bad imo, but I don’t think you need to push it in most cases, esp if your baby hates it.
New bedding for Ari’s big boy bed.
Don’t worry, we’re not going there yet, they were just 50% off.
I reserve my right to keep Ari contained in his crib as long as possible.
Ari waiting for his Ava (grandmother) to pick him up so I can have a break since I am a Sickie today.
Ari picked her a flower but things happened
Having family around is amazing.
Yesterday I was at dance aerobics doing high kicks with spirit fingers (!) and admiring my instructor’s body glitter (nice one kelly!!!!)
Today I have a double eye infection, head cold, and can barely muster one measly jazz hand.
