Happiness is...(Week 25, 2014)

Happiness is...

#Mamaminutes (Yes, I love trashy romance novels.)
Pushing a baby on the swing for 40 minutes is sort of like working out right?
Check out that smile! My boy LOVES trucks, tractors, cars and the forklift at daddy's work.
Our first harvest of the summer!

Happiness is...(Week 20, 2014)

 My sister graduated from CSU Monterey Bay on Saturday!

 I got to smooch on my 12 year old brother at the grad party. It's crazy how big he is. When I moved out he was only 4!
Speaking of graduates, Caet was the cutest at her preschool ceremony. 

Salmon patties & broccoli salad for dinner.
My snuggle baby.

Happiness is...(Week 19, 2014)

It's been about a month since I've participated in #happinessis, finding the happy hasn't been easy lately.
 On April 26th my beautiful sister-in-law gave birth to a perfect but stillborn little girl, Simone.
I dreamed about this tattoo the morning after we said goodbye and on Mother's Day my sister & her boyfriend who is tattoo artist surprised me by bringing his gear over to dinner. I'm proud to be able to carry a little reminder of my precious niece with me forever.

On April 29th, my other lovely sister-in-law gave birth to a sweet little boy, Isaac.
Don't you love the onesie? I totally agree with it. ;) 
It is a hand-me-down from Weston & my other nephew Easton.
 Monday was my new friend's birthday and our kids picked her giant dandelion bouquets.
 I love making our own play dough & seeing the fun creations.
 May 11-17 is Dirty Diaper Laundry's 4th Annual Flats & Handwashing Challenge.
This is the 3rd year we have participated.

Here is my 6 year old handwashing her doll's diapers with me last night. She said,"I'm just like mommy!"
Cue heart melt.

Happiness is...(Week 15, 2014)

I'm not keeping up with my #happinessis posts. I feel like life is eating me alive lately.
I'm almost finished top stitching all of the onesies from my SIL's baby shower and even had time to do one myself. I opted for freezer stenciling because I'm so sick of top stitching! Oh and I broke my machine working on the very last shirt. So that's kind of not even an option.
This little boy went through a growth spurt and slept for over 13 hours one night. Waking just enough to nurse every 2 hours of course.
He loved watching our caterpillars become butterflies. He would spend much of the day standing on a step stool watching them. He was telling them good night in this picture.

And The Fifth Element is available on Netflix! This is one of my favorite movies ever. I've probably seen it over 20 times.

Happiness is...(week 11, 2014)

This week I'm participating in 2 different photo-a-day challenges on Instagram.
One for gentle parenting (#gpweek2014) & one for cloth diapering (#cloth101photoaday).
This is my favorite gentle parenting post. It's an old photo but I love it.
And this is my favorite cloth diapering post. 
Running away & yelling NO! when I asked if I could take a picture of his diaper.
The girls happy moment of the week. FROZEN!!!!!!!!!!!!
I also finished this totally awesome diaper just in time for my SIL's baby shower.
All 4 of the lovelies I made.

And the quilt.
And my favorite picture of the week.
My snuggly sweet baby dude. I don't get too many cuddles now that he is a big 2 year old.

As always I'm linking up with the beautiful Lisa of Crazy Adventures in Parenting.

Happiness is...(Week 9, 2014)

Monday was definitely a happy day.
Banana muffins, heart shaped mango scones, my tulips & babies in the sun.
My new porch light.
Realizing my baby will be 2! And seeing how much he's grown.
These two sillies cuddling before bed.

Happiness is...(Week 7, 2014)

Happiness is celebrating my hubby and I celebrating our 7th Valentine's Day together. He listened this year and got me exactly what I wanted this year. Living plants! White tulips for the front yard, raspberries, cilantro and a tomato for the garden. And a bar of extra dark chocolate. Yum!
For lunch I spent extra time making heart carrot slices for the kids instead of giving them boring old sticks.
And my favorite dinner of the week. Asian-Style Cobb Salad.
And the thing I don't have my own picture of. A 2014 Dodge Caravan. I'm not a pedestrian anymore!

Happiness is 2014 (Week 4)

I kinda fell off the Happiness is bandwagon for a while but I'm hopping back on.
C's new car seat. I'm kind of a car seat geek. Her old one was starting to show some wear and tear so it was time to replace it! Evenflo Sureride makes us all smile.
W is over his 6 week wrapping strike! My snuggle baby is back.
And my purple is nice and bright again. No more pastel locks and dark roots.
We made it to school early once last week. Go us!
Mina picked out a bunch of scraps and I made her a little doll quilt. I still need to bind it but she has been playing with it anyway.
