7.8 – 7.14 week in review {insta-jd2}

7.8
finished reading Charlotte’s Web aloud today!!! proud of our boy for sticking with it! reward: watching the movie!

Liberty knows how to entertain her adoring crowd… funny faces kept us laughing quite a while.

Jarod is sick – fever & achy. please pray for him… no time to slow down.

Jarod’s not well, but definitely feeling better! Thank you for your prayers… keep ’em comin’!

my current read: TCK – big book, short on time. :-/ & a few books from our borrowed stash that Sterling & I enjoyed today. 😀

Sterling working hard to stay still long enough to suffice my need for captured moments. happiness!!!

today’s hair as art: hair crisscross wrapped with colorful rubber bands. seriously have no idea how they accomplished this masterpiece! in other hair related news I love her little wispy bangs coming in. 😉

these days the sprouts are having to share daddy a lot… so understandably this moment was the highlight of their day. floor time love. 🙂

Liberty’s enjoying “studying” Sterling’s school book… with baby bottle in hand. 😉 Sterling enjoyed some special time with his reading buddy… of course, I enjoyed spending time with my friend too! 😉

7.11
around our home/complex: people hanging off tall buildings is not entirely uncommon in these parts… these guys are installing exterior installation in preparation for the brutal winter. always thankful for our visitors! & our beloved drying rack – complete with crank (& pulley) system to allow ease of hanging. 😉

our servant-heart friend returned today & blessed me… as well as the sprouts! love her willingness to get on the floor with them, read to them & her ability to make learning fun.

look who’s getting the (camera) bug! one thrilled mommy! & of course, my ill’ tutu girl, all giggles! they know just how to make me smile!

VIDEO: look who I caught singing our bedtime song… this kind of behavior is usually indicative if their own need for sleep.

VIDEO: based on what followed shortly after putting their babies to bed, maybe this is what they think we do after tucking them in? guess we need to tone down our evenings a little… or take a few cues from them & have our own little party!

lovin’ the view from here! 2 lil’ bookworms!

newest mall near our house is under construction… they recently put up this sign saying we’ll soon have a Gap, H&M, & a ToysRUs within walking distance! how weird is that??? & again I find myself asking, “where am I???”

7.13
Sterling’s red, white & blue breakfast! oatmeal with yogurt covered raisins, dried cranberries & fresh blueberries… yum! & American flag!

1 month before we head to the west side honorary breakfast… though she’s only spent 3 weeks of her life there she’s pretty thrilled to wave the flag… & I have a sneaking suspicious she’s gonna love the tex-mex!

major accomplishment!!! Liberty was willing to hold Sterling’s hand! up till now it’s been stretching for her to be linked with just 1 person! here we are CAREFULLY crossing the freeway in front of our apartment. please excuse the fluffy skirt… I wear it because Sterling likes it so much… it has cars on it & apparently it makes me beautiful! 😀

it’s been real… & awesome!

our entire 3 years here the city square has been under construction… but it’s finally open!!! in essence, the square is the place to hangout all summer & offers lots of free entertainment & an awesome community atmosphere!

like brother, like sister!

look who was excited to find the local flag… good looking, Sterling! when this little boy was brought to Liberty so they could take a picture together she got all excited & started hugging & trying to kiss him. even though he wasn’t too keen on her affection the locals took her kindness as a sign to shower her with awe & touch, at which point she literally collapsed into a ball & we carried her away. for a little girl who’s not too fond of touch, these moments, though rare, can be a but overwhelming. overall, they did great & we all had an awesome family outing!
