FRI-YAY!!! Time for some friday favorites.
The kids new favorite thing to do outside is turn my table into a fort. Love when they play like this! Outside, together, creatively.
Any day I get to have someone clean my house from top to bottom is a favorite day for me! This mama needs all the help she can get. Bless those women. After they left, J was just amazed. He walked around exclaiming things like “It’s so clean and beautiful!” and “Look at these lines, mom!” And then ran to check out his room. So glad he appreciated the cleanliness, haha.
This week the girl had a Kindergarten Meet and Greet at the park near her school. She’s excited about getting to do a whole year of Kindergarten (opposed to the less than 3 months she got last year). She even made a new friend who lives in our neighborhood. Praying for lots of sweet friendships to be made this year.
Have I mentioned adoptions are my FAVORITE?! I got to do another one this week – I love my job so much. Being an adoption lawyer is my favorite. Sometimes I can’t believe I get to do it as a job.
Diesel is a FAVORITE around here. And apparently he knows it because I keep finding him ON MY BED. Who does he think he is? Just the most beloved dog in this house. He’s so great, y’all. He’s like our own personal therapy dog.
My parents stopped by for a quick visit one evening, and they’re everyone’s FAVORITES for sure. If you know them, you understand why.
While they were here, this conversation happened. He meant that I look like I’m glowing… but still. Oh, dad.
Dad: How’s the baby?
Me: I don’t know, I haven’t done my blood test yet.
Dad: Well, you look pregnant to me.

If you missed it, I recapped the day we transferred our little embryo – FET day. It was such an exciting day!!! I also blogged a little about where my heart is at with foster care and infertility – the things we lost in the fire. It’s a little heavy, but it’s the truth of where we’re at right now. Lastly, Val from Chronicles of a Babywise Mom guest posted about how to Babywise older kids. She’s a Babywise GENIUS so if you’re looking to start up a schedule with your older kiddos, check out her post!
That’s a wrap! Have a fun weekend, friends. Soak up these last days of summertime.
