Looking at this sneak peak from a photo shoot that our good friend Jesse Wride did for us recently. He is the singer of J.Wride (the band that Sam plays guitar for), Klair's surrogate uncle, and an awesome photographer. If this photo is any indication of what the other pictures are going to look like, I'm excited. I am in love with my husband's face and my baby's hair in this photo. And those blue eyes? To die for.
Feeling Sick. Klair has been teething for over a week now. Molars. They are nasty, relentless little buggers. Then, to top it off, she came down with a cold. There was one night where she didn't sleep for more than 20 minutes at a time-- consider my heart officially broken. With the lack of sleep and abundance of stress from a teething, sick baby my immune system didn't stand a chance. She's better now (thank goodness!) but it's lingering for me. Therefore I am...
Sitting by the fire, enjoying the fact that I am all warm and cozy despite the cold.
Wearing sweat pants. And a t-shirt. And glasses. And a very high, messy bun. In fact, this has been my wardrobe for several days now. The few times I've ventured out of the house I've simply changed into (stretchy-comfy) jeans and called it good. ...at least my nails are painted? That ought to count for something.
Eating mandarin oranges. I figure it's a good way to get some extra vitamin C. I know, I know. Oranges don't have nearly as much vitamin C as broccoli. Sam loves to remind me of this. But who wants to eat broccoli when they're sick? These little beauties are so addicting--even Klair
case and point. I just want to squeeze her!

Reading lots of blogs posts. I have gained a number of followers in the past few days and I'm thrilled to pieces to be connected in some way to these ladies. I've followed every one of them back--not because I felt obligated to, but because I genuinely wanted to. Each of these bloggers is an inspiration. You are all so amazing and I'm feeling inspired on multiple levels right now!
