It's The Little Things: Week Twenty

Today is our anniversary, happiest three years to you, babe!! :)  Part of me can't believe it has been that long (I'm thinking we aren't qualified as newlyweds anymore?!), but mostly, I can't remember life before we were officially husband & wife.  The past few years have been so amazing & beyond what I ever could have hoped for, I feel so lucky for the life we continue to build each day.

Every year around this time, I always look back on pictures from our day & I couldn't help but laugh when I came across this one over the weekend.  I really don't blame him for looking at me like that for making him hold an "I do" sign, it's definitely not his thing or something he would come up with (ever).  Yet he loves me through my craziness & my need to do the "little" extra things all of the time, I'm positive there is no one else who ever could handle me (& Waverly Maye), or more importantly, that is more perfect for us. :)
Thank you for all you do & for the man you are, here is to many more years!


One of my favorite parts of summer vacation is being at home with Waverly each morning.  I've mentioned that during the school year, my early wake-up time means that most days during the week, I don't see her until the afternoon.  I have always been a morning person & (so far) Waverly is too, so I hate not being there during those sweet, exciting moments of a brand new day.

Waverly's current favorite breakfast food is "uffins", I wish I could say homemade but my dad brought her some from the bakery at the store & she is obsessed.  I think part of the reason is obviously that they are delicious, but mostly, because I let her eat them while sitting on the floor rather than her high chair.  She is pretty much starting to hate the high chair these days, my search for a good booster seat just got a whole lot more serious because she is officially over being strapped down (suggestions welcome!).
So I thought it would be fun to take our breakfast date to the park, I packed food for each of us & put it in our bike trailer.


As usual these days, Waverly preferred playing to eating & went down the slide about 40 times in a row before even attempting to take a bite.  Yet eventually, she joined me at the table, she was so excited & pretty much amazed to be eating breakfast in a new place.  We were the only ones there (thank goodness, she saw one car drive up & "barked" at it again!).  It was such a special way to kick off a new day & definitely one of those "little moments" I won't forget.


And lastly, our love of popsicles continues & this is yet another example of a food Waverly requests all of the time (like literally from morning on, she would like an "uffin" with a side of "pop").  I got these new molds from Target (similar) & couldn't wait to try them out, I used this recipe from Pinterest & they are perfect!

    One of Abigail's most favorite things are "couch picnics" for breakfast. Total special treat and they make her SO excited! Who knew moving from the table to the living room would be such a big deal? :)
