Beautiful Messes


Some days, the bed doesn't get made until the middle of the day.


The sewing projects pile up in the dining room.


This stinker gets two baths (she is more interested in feeding herself than being fed - it is fun but messy!).


The colorful plastic toys take over my once calm living room.


The kitchen counter is lost under a pile of dishes (the dishwasher is broken ...).


But it will probably get worse because someone is dying to be on the move!

I can relate on so many levels! And our dishwasher was broken too - reminds you how amazing those things are!

Our little Graham is moving around - not crawling quite yet, just rolling and tossing from here to there.

It changes EVERYTHING!

And I see Elliot got her two bottom teeth! So have Graham and Margaret (a couple of weeks ago). They grow so fast!

Love this post. Can definitely relate to life getting crazy and hectic!

Little Elliot is really cute, though. Sounds like she's going to keep you on your toes indefinitely.

So happy to read that you are blogging again, I've missed your daily reads! Yup, that sums up my house to the T!

So glad to see you fully embracing the chaso and beauty of motherhood! You're doing a wonderful job.

Little Elliott is not so little any more! She's so big and precious. I'd love to see you guys.

I ran across this the other day and got a good laugh out of it. I'm sure you will, too, if you haven't see it already :)

Wow, look at those eyes! Beautiful messes indeed...and hate to tell you that they don't seem to go away, but still worth it, of course.
