Casper, our little round-faced charlie brown boy, today you are two months old. You had another happy day at home with your sister and me. It snowed all morning, but it was warm and the birds were singing. We played with stickers and pretended to go fishing on the couch, and you were content to sit in my arms and watch it all. I spend my days guiding you through the cycle of sleep, eat, burp, be awake, bounce, diaper change, and wrap up to sleep again. And besides that, here's what's up lately:

Your smile stops me in my tracks. Really, it's the best. I love your peachy color and the fuzz that covers your exceptionally round head. You are dedicated to figuring out how to make noises and you like to call back to me with your little coos. Your dark eyes try to follow me as I walk across the room and I'm so grateful that I get to see them so much- they are not too often scrunched closed in crying. You like to gaze intently at the ceiling like you're watching for something big to happen. Your hands tend to stay in little fists, but they creep up to your cheeks and scratch. You are so patient while your sister smothers you with kisses and her hair gets in your eyes. You love diaper changes on the floor and my white noise app. Nursing is your favorite, along with bouncing on the ball. You take great naps in your swing. And you like loud music with a good beat for your lullaby.

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
