Boxes and bibimbap

This is what my living room looks like at the moment: 
I'm not even going to show you what the rest of the house looks like :) Taking care of a 10 month old all day when your play space is shrinking at such a rapid rate is tricky, I tell you what. 

Also, we tried our hand at making bibimbap (a Korean dish) tonight. We went to a little Korean restaurant for Brady's birthday while his parents were visiting and loved this dish! Apparently it's not as easy to recreate as we thought. It was good but not the same. Blast! This won't be the last attempt though.

Simon & Patrick

I have to be honest, if it's not already obvious, I'm having a hard time with this blog. Even now I'm having writer's block, which is funny because it's not like there isn't plenty to write about. I mean, I have a list the length of my arm of things to write about. Literally, the length of my arm. 

We're getting ready to move and moving means change. In a post I wrote a long time ago I said I wasn't big on change. Now I feel like I'm kind of obsessed with it. I'm just lapping it up and anything I can reshape, alter, transform, adjust I do. But the changes aren't happening fast enough for me and it's making my skin itch. With anticipation and impatience. The reason I'm telling you this? I changed my blog because I was "itching" to but I'm not sure I like it...which makes me want to avoid it because I'm not sure how to fix it. That's about the best explanation I can give. I didn't say it was a good excuse but that's the reason I haven't been writing. 

In other news, I got out my guitar yesterday and Tessa has been making music ever since. She's like her dad in so many ways and one way is her love for music. She dances and sings and plays any instrument you'll give her. Hopefully, we can keep her passionate about those things always. 

Well looky there. An actual blog post. That wasn't too painful :)

As you can see we are making some changes to our blog. We're so excited about it! Please be patient while we work out the kinks :)

The best recipe for happiness? Mommy and daughter dates.

Yesterday our family went to get a tour of our new apartment. We'll be moving in the first week of September. It'll be so good for Tessa because there is a playground (literally) in our backyard and there are activities for kids every week. It'll be good for me because there are plenty of other moms around and a walking trail just a few steps from the apartment building. Perfect for those times when I just need to get Tessa and I out of the house but don't have the energy to pack everything in the car. It'll be good for Brady because he'll be able to come home for lunch and he'll also get to ride his bike to school. Saves us some serious cash. We're really anxious to just get this move over with. We hate moving.

After our tour Tessa and I dropped dad off at school and then walked around the outdoor mall next to our new apartment. We people watched, talked about how much we love "da-da" and shared a frozen yogurt.

We both agree that we are NOT big fans of Red Mango but we ARE big fans of daddy. We have so much in common!

I love dates with my little chick:

The best recipe for happiness? Baby curls.

I am obsessed with Tessa's hair. I never thought I'd be lucky enough to have a baby with curly hair but it actually happened. Her locks have a mind of their own and we NEVER brush them otherwise it comes out straight. Anyway, here is an entire post dedicated to those baby ringlets of hers. And a video just so I can remember how she moved, looked, and sounded that day. I'm so grateful for all of the videos that help me freeze time and relive those moments over and over again. 
^Have to have a bow these days because her bangs are too long and daddy wont let me trim them^
Happy Friday!
