Life Lately

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind. Charley broke out after eating something the weekend of July 4th and then his eczema flared up (cue stressed and overly concerned mama!), then I got sick last week with a nasty head cold + fever and I realized that I hadn’t taken his 10 month photos and it was quickly getting closer to the 11 month mark and further and further from the 10 month mark! ‘Tis life, though! #momlife

No one wants to get sick, but I found myself being thankful for it. Even if our circumstances don’t change, our attitude about it can make a world of a difference. I was thankful for getting sick because I think my body must have needed a break. I tend to go nonstop and try to be super woman/super mom and I am horrible at resting. So maybe it was a blessing in disguise 😉  A little nudge from the universe to take it easy haha!

So not very many photos of me, obvs, but I managed to {finally} take his “10 month” baby photos and edit some photos I took of our favorite local coffee shop (Cafe Evoke in downtown Edmond). This place has become my favorite place to meet other mamas, friends, and heck, I’ll even go there by myself (with Charley of course, lol) just to get out! Sometimes I need to just get out of the house to feel alive. I get major cabin fever if I’m indoors too long. Their interior design is gorgeous & aesthetically pleasing, the coffee is on point, and they have high chairs. *praise hands* Oh and if you’re ever in the area, you must order one of their waffles. So. Good. Worth all the carbs.


He has 6 teeth now! So crazy. The bottom 2 came in around 6 months, then all of a sudden the top 4 came in all at once. Poor guy! He’s been a trooper, though. Amazing how much it changes his look!


If you haven’t been able to tell yet, he is a total ham. 😉 ha


This was the only face he made the whole time! haha (I have no clue!)

Another outcome of me being sick last week: I hopped on The Bachelorette bandwagon. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but I’m so hooked. It’s like a horrible train wreck. So. Much. Drama. I can’t stop watching! I binged watched on ABC’s app and so now I’m perpetually a week behind. Kills me! I want instant gratification 😉

Love you guys!

xo, Em
