She's becoming quite a pro in the mess making category, especially when she decides to skip her morning nap and play while we attempt to get school done. I love how she looks up and grins right as I peek around the corner to check on her. #notguiltyatall πŸ˜„

These two were just sitting playing together with the baby for at least 5 minutes, which is a long time in infant and toddler time. Also, why does Astrid somehow look so grown up here?! 😒

We really had fun learning about our capitol today. They have been restoring much of the building and the artwork throughout and there were even painters touching up some pieces while we were there today.

When Oscar turned 3 it seemed like he advanced to a new level of independence overnight. Along with other milestones, he can now hang up his own wet clothes because he just barely reaches the line. πŸ™Œ #oneofthebigkids #justdontgrowtoofast

With bitterly cold temperatures outside and a sick baby refusing to nap inside, I'm thankful that there's plenty of coffee and kids who don't mind rice cakes and peanut butter for lunch.

Dairy free smoothies just aren't quite as good as the dairy filled variety. #thisguydidntseemtomind
