Eating / / / Mongolian beef for dinner. Chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Because life is not living without dessert … after the kiddos bedtime, of course.

Loving / / / Jemma’s infatuation with picture taking. She loves grabbing my camera, or my phone or my old Kodak that I’ve passed on to her and taking photos. It’s fun seeing the world from her perspective … ants, grass, her brother, favorite toys and this gem that she snapped of her mama :)

Missing / / / being alone. I never used to like being alone, but now that I’m never alone. I miss it. I’d schedule some alone time, but Max is in full swing separation anxiety these days. Poor boy wails for his mama and I don’t want to leave him upset … or ask someone to stay with an unhappy Bubba.

Moving / / / boxes. Still. I make a little progress each week but this settling into a home isn’t going to be complete for quite some time.

Taking / / / a leap into a new sector of babywearing – WRAPS! I’ve been watching YouTube videos and practicing with a doll. Tomorrow, it’s Max’s turn :) There is so much to learn – brands, carries, acronyms and lots of lingo. Are you a wrapper? What are your favorite resources? Wraps? Videos? Share!

    I've always wanted to try wraps- you'll have to blog about it a bit eventually.

    I was about to send you my favourite mangolian beef recipe but then clicked on the link and that's exactly it! Also, I always find that my need for some alone time often coincides with a bout of separation anxiety. Perhaps it's just unlikely timing, but more likely the two are related. Having a little person suctioned to you non-stop is bound to leave anyone desperate for a little space (even two minutes to pee, am I right?).

    I love that you just gave me permission to eat dessert every night! ;) haha! I don't have kids yet, but any time I get lonely I try to remind myself that some day I will miss this alone time so much and I try to bask in it! Happy weekend!

    Oh that ellusive alone time. I used to hate it and now I stay up way to late to get some. Thanks for that recipe – I have a flank steak in the freezer with a destiny now.

    Yay! I hope your whole family enjoys it! We didn't even have any leftovers which is rare for most meals!
