The T Monster

After Mother's Day I took about a month's respite from being a full-out wife. I let household chores slide a little, and nightly dinners weren't a guarantee. But after my mini-hiatus, I'm ready to leave my "half-way wife" status behind and re-embrace being a full-time homemaker. To anyone who needs a little break, I highly recommend this. By the end of the month, you'll actually want to clean the bathrooms and sterilize your child's toys. (Hard to believe, I know.)

I love being a mother and wife. I can take pride in a tidy home and happy family.

Speaking of a happy family... Is my baby not the cutest ever?? My cousin and wonderful photographer, Alaina, took these photos while we were in Utah. I've been meaning to share them because I love that she captured so many of his darling little expressions!

This is how he used to feel about grass.
Right before he got his first tooth! You can totally see it coming in.

Thank you, Alaina!


  1. Wow, those are some awesome facial expressions! He is a little cutie!

  2. Lainey really does take AMAZING photos! Those expressions are SO adorable!!!

  3. Oh I love those pictures! The colors, expressions and that darling little boy of yours! I wish she could take pictures of Madeline!

  4. Those are such cute expressions!!!

  5. Confession: Trenton is currently my desktop's background.
    I miss my "godson"--and his parentals. xo
