Bliss Bits 7/6/2016

And just like that, another month has gone by. It feels like I’m in a constant time warp, but I have a feeling that’s just how life goes with a baby! So much has happened over the last few weeks: John’s first Father’s Day, Oden’s first plane flight, a couple of summer weddings, a couple of al fresco dinner parties, hikes with Cholula, a baby-free date night. Someone told me once that when you have a child, the days are long but the years are short. I need to try to remember that when my patience grows thin and my tired-o-meter is high. These are the best days of our lives! Take a peek at some of the happy moments from the last few weeks.

  1. Love the Usual Bliss! Turning diagonal? Just wait until you lose your baby — when he rolls for the first time under the bed. LOL

    Happy times, Lady.
