For months and for reasons unknown, Will has been incredibly fearful of riding his bike. The only reason that I can think is that a few months ago he fell off his bike, and my ever-so-cautious first-born has refused to get on his bike ever since. We tried everything we could think to get that … Continue reading #142 Be Brave, Little One.
As we were playing outside today, Will asked me about clovers. I told him that usually clovers only have three leaves, but if you are lucky, you may find one with four leaves. This little turkey found not one, but three four-leaf clovers. He is one lucky little man - with eyes like a hawk, … Continue reading #139 Four-leaf Clover.
I seriously cannot get enough of these two together. Their love for eachother just melts my heart. These are just some pictures over the last few days with them; a day in the life with these two.
Mommy & Will lunch date: I told Will I would take him wherever he wanted to go for lunch. His choice? “The blue place!” (aka Culver’s). Give this kid a grilled cheese and an ice cream, and his day is made!

We decided to make a family day of it, and started our day off with breakfast at Pancake Pantry. The Pancake Pantry is a Nashville staple. There is no doubt that when you … Continue reading #132 Nate’s 1st Pancake Pantry Experience.
Today was Nate's favorite teacher, Ms. Taylor's, last day. In honor of her last day, we made her a sweet Valentine's Day gift for her to remember her little buddy Nate. Once we got to school, Ms. Taylor also surprised us with a sweet tribute to Nate - she made him his very own photo … Continue reading #130 Nate’s Favorite Teacher.
Will always loves helping around the house where he can. He takes his big brother responsibility very seriously. While I was getting dinner ready tonight, he insisted on setting the table. I looked up from the stove, and saw him proudly setting out forks at our places at the dinner table. Be still my heart.
