run run hadley.

I am so proud of my Hadley!
A race I am doing in a few weeks has a kids "mini marathon"
this was during a 2 mile run she did with me 
She got a running chart that I have to sign off on every time she runs a mile. If she runs 25 miles before race day, she gets to run in the kids mini marathon- which is 1.2 miles. Totaling 26.2 miles completed and she will get her special medal!
She has a little there and back course she does by our house and has been doing 1 mile. She puts on her greatest showman soundtrack and takes off. It's so cute! (don't worry, I can see her for all of it) This day she actually did 1.5miles and the last mile was at a 9:30 pace! I was so impressed!
She is a little behind on her running chart because of our trip- I forgot her running shoes. She was upset with me. So, now she goes out and does 2 miles so she can catch up! Hope this sticks so I can soon have a little running buddy!!! We actually went out and did 2 miles together last Sunday. I see some 5k's in our near future!

7 months.

Remi Rem is 7 months! 

My gosh we adore her.
She was starting to get annoyed about her bangs in her face, so ... piggy tails!
Then a pony tail because she just doesn't hold still long enough for me to do piggies!
She is constantly on the move...she's so fast at her army crawling. 
She can sit on her own- as long as she doesn't start to lean too far
She tried her first food- oatmeal cereal. It's crazy how many foods hads had tried by this age...then beckam half of that- and now Rem, she's had oatmeal and sweet potatoes! hah I need to step up my game.
She can hold her bottle by herself, puts anything and everything in her mouth. Forget about a bow with her hair down now- she pulls it out to chew on it.
She discovered herself in the mirror and is a big fan.
We just got back from hawaii where she discovered a few new things. First she was amazing on the long trip- she never got fussy or angry on the flight- she would hang out then take a nap. She slept the whole way home on the red-eye as well. She's a dream baby I tell ya.
sand: and she didn't eat it. Just played with it.
beach: hates it. we will keep trying though! 
She threw up for the first time- it was about 4 hours of torture for her- then she slept it off and was great the next day. 
She's still the best little sleeper- she's down to two naps a day and sleeps at night from 7:30ish until 7:30ish -- sometimes she tries to sneak in a cat nap when we aren't paying attention
She loves her naps- and I don't know if I've every seen her complain about having to take one
She's getting to be social now when we hang out with other littles
She never fusses unless she's missed a meal, sees a bottle, or you haven't been good about getting her to a nap- She's just the best. 
 We just love you sweet girl

sunshine and hiking.

Almost 3yrs apart. She: teaches him to ride a bike, count to 20, earn his alphabet crown, and how to sneak Knox food. He: shares his m&ms when it's her favorite color, copies her every move, and offers to go upstairs and turn on the lights for her when she starts crying because she's afraid of the dark. Together: They conspire against me. They make me laugh when they re in trouble. And they get excited to do all things together. These two, and their bond, make my soul happy. 

Been some beautiful days lately- we've made the most of them.

matching sisters.

Hadley's day was made when she finally got to wear matching dresses with Rem to church....
 Apparently though, I still had a mom fail, because Beckam was super upset he didn't have a matching tie or something.

zen babes.

"There is a beautiful thing inside you, that is thousands of years old. Too old to be captured in poems. Too old to be loved by everyone. But loved so very deeply, by a chosen few."
I moved here a year ago, a little nervous about finding "my people," but instead, I have found  group of women that my soul has known forever, and is right at home with. And lucky for us- Hailey has introduced us to kundalini which has quickly become our go-to activity together. Bring on the tea ceremonies, sound weavings, sound baths, and meditation practices!
