I've been wanting to blog for probably a week-ish now, but every time I thought to make time to do it, I felt like there wasn't any significant to share.  

That's okay.

Not all of life is earth-shattering.  The truth is, we're in a bit of a lull, just humming along.

I feel like there is light at the end of our tunnel.  After five weeks of sickness at our house, I'm a little hesitant, but so desperately wanting to say that we are almost healthy.  Henry is on his third round of antibiotics for an ear infection that just won't quit.  Poor guy.  He's been a trooper, but our little trick of mixing his medicine and juice in a shot glass and fancy-ing it up with a pretty decorated paper straw has lost its luster, and we are having to get super creative to get him to down his little mocktail.  

We go to see the ENT we were referred to by our pediatrician next week 
because poor Ham has just struggled with ear infecitons a little too much these past six months.  

I'm a little glad and a little sad at the same time.  I don't want these infections to be an ongoing issue, but it's just so stinking frustrating when you think you've done all the right things as a parent to avoid certain issues, and you end up having to deal with them anyways.

But, here we are, and we will deal with it as best we can.

Unfortunately, those five weeks of illness have left me a little zapped.  I'm feeling low on creativity, a little bitter about being cooped up so much, and I need to get my mojo back because I feel I'm the best me - mother, wife, friend - when my creative wheels are spinning.

Lately I've been daydreaming about having a new space to create in.  New walls to decorate, different design challenges to face.  And while I have so enjoyed putting our home together, I've stared at all of these walls a little too much this last month, and I'm over it.  All of it.  Except I don't want to start over in this house so Pinterest will have to suffice for now.  I'm itching for a change.

And for spring.  I know it's only a couple of inches of snow on the ground, but it. is. March.  Go away.


A few photos of my sunshine even on the cloudy days:

 Coooooooooooo.  Girlfriend has a lot to say lately.

Dimple sighting.

I've always heard the second (and any subsequent children) have less and less photos of them when compared to the firstborn.  
We'll have to see if that ends up being true in our house...especially when the firstborn rarely sits still.
 Henry in timeout in our dungeon.  Just kidding.  If I try to get any work done while Nelle is sleeping and Henry is awake it always ends up with him tearing apart our basement and playing in the storage room.  This little blue-eyed boy.  I think he's just the handsomest.
