Me House

When Cooper shouts, "Me House!" it's time to get to work on building a couch house. Sometimes it degrades into a couch trampoline. This is one of those times. My living room has never looked so well-kept as on this day.

Wee-ha! This was fun...

We need these moments during this time of frequent and highly frantic tantrums. Lately, Bryan and I have felt a little like we're living in a toddler war-zone. Yikes. It's moments like these that make me want to do anything in the world for him. I mean, look how happy he is! :)


One week ago today, we welcomed a new pup into the Kelley fold. There's a million mixed emotions that have gone along with adopting this new creature- but decidedly, she's been a wonderful addition. As sweet as pie and in love with Cooper. Meet Sadie...

Many thanks to the animal loving folks at Atlanta Pet Rescue for bringing her into our life. Check us out here.

My Big Boy

This morning my heart almost melted into a giant pool on the floor. I loved the little goodbye we had this morning on your way to the sitter's/ mine and Daddy's way to work. Daddy had you headed out the door with your arms full of toys you couldn't leave behind- a dinosaur, a train, puh-e (puppy), and your sippy cup. Almost more than you could wrangle. You happily kissed me bye on the front steps and followed Daddy down the driveway to the truck. I hollered after you, "Bye! I love you!" And you hollered back, "Bye Momma! I uh ooh!" I'm so proud of you for a million reasons. One being how confident and brave you are when we take you to the sitter's on Mommy's work days. You are as cool as a cucumber and I'm so grateful for that. Grateful that I don't have to have a completely broken heart when I go to work and grateful that someday your confidence will help you navigate the twists and turns of life. You are a wonderful little dude and I'm so glad you're mine. xoxo, Momma

Grateful for You

I just wanted to say that today I feel so lucky to have you in my life. Where would I be without you? I don't even want to imagine. Thank you for coming into our lives and being the wonderful little boy that you are. Sometimes, I get wrapped up in a place in my head and forget what I have around me. The last few days have been that way and when I got you out of bed this morning, I was like, "Oh! Hello, You!." There you were, all sleepy eyed and looking for your paci (well, you call it hassy). I asked you if you wanted to get out of bed and you said, "mhmm". I love you little pumpkin. You're just what I need. Thanks for waking up before I left for work today- I needed to see your sweet little face.
