Unbelievably, Oden is 10 weeks old already. We’ve all heard people say, “It just goes by so fast…” and now I realize that it’s true. I feel like I live in a constant time warp! I’m simultaneously sad to think of the sweet newborn phases that have past and excited to see Oden conquering milestone after milestone. Smiling! Cooing! Finding his fist and putting it into his mouth! The small stuff is monumental for him, and we celebrate each tiny accomplishment with giggles and kisses and encouragement. There’s nothing like spending your days with a developing infant that makes you really appreciate the little things. It also reiterates the fact that time is precious. Hop off of the “I’m so busy” treadmill for a few minutes and look around at all of the beautiful things. Life is a gift. (PS. Dear Time, Please chill out.)
Take a peek at my recent smiles!
I adore when he sleeps on me.
Daily bottle-washing with my coffee!
John still finds the snow and I’m pretty sure Cholula is smiling…
At some point, you just leave the fork in the pan.
Heavenly morning with my babies!
Look how he holds his hands while he eats.
Springtime is so rejuvenating!
Two minutes before shots. Such a tough little guy!
Getting out is way harder than it used to be, but always feels great.
He has a bit of a comb-over situation in the back.
Everyone loves meeting Baby O!
Big blue sky.
He’s boycotting tummy time.
Hiking with Oden for the first time: CHECK!
He’s a little sweat ball in the Bjorn!
YOU GUYS. The baby ground squirrels are back!
Oden helped me shop for Cinco de Mayo.
How awesome is this hand-painted plate from Ali and Bright?
In case you haven’t seen the dimples yet…
Right before I got my hair done for the first time in months. Hallelujah!
My Asian Steak Salad recipe landed on AOL Lifestyle’s Food page!
I hope he always looks at me with love like that.
Cholula is a big fan of springtime, too.
Captain Adorable! Also, chunky thighs!
We stayed at Sundance Resort for Mother’s Day weekend. Stay tuned for more about that!
My dessert dreams came true: a s’mores skillet cookie.

John caught this shot of a sunset this week. Wow!
She sneaks an extra snuggle any chance she can get.
Blue Steel. Those lips!
I went on a killer hike with Oden and Cholula yesterday!
One year ago, we explored the San Rafael Swell. Amazing.
Two years ago, Señor Juan sang me a little tune on Cinco de Mayo.
Three years ago, Miss Macy was on the move at my folks’ house!
Four years ago, Cholula was helping Papa with the campfire.
Five years ago, I was snuggling Zamboni on her 9th birthday.
And this is the view from my porch these days.
You know. Just the usual bliss.
