Mama, let’s call this one “crazy doctor”!
Really thankful for this reminder tonight.
Kid has talent 🤖
Picked his outfit 🙂
Mama if I wear my sweatshirt on my head, it looks like hair. Now we are twins! Everyone will think I’m your twin and visiting you! I love this boy!
Throw back to when I was E’s age, fresh off the plane from Africa. I asked my mom tonight who kept giving me those bangs, I had them from 1-15. The answer was obvious... My grandma still has that sweater, teddy and couch 😂 I managed to grow my bangs out.

I’ve been struggling with patience. To be completely honest, I haven’t had much. So much of the time E acts much older than he is, it’s easy to forget he’s still so little! This coming week I’m working on all the things! I want to be more present. I need to let go of most of my issues and be a better mama! Today has been a good one.

Another fun workshop at @homedepot This time we had friends!
I wish that I could be like this cool kid!
He was officially diagnosed with asthma 2.5 years ago, but has had signs of it for almost 4. He’s finally realized that his “puffer” really does make things easier. I try to get him to use his inhaler before he gets going, but until now he hated it. It tastes funny and it’s no fun to have to wait for it to kick in. He was able to play much longer and much harder than usual because he used it right away! Still freaks me out with how red and blotchy he gets and how quickly he goes from running to wheezing. *I know things could be a lot worse. I know there are so many kids who are struggling with more difficult things. For us, his asthma and weak immune system has been tough.
Still fits, mostly! @admdms Emerson needs a new one!

Mama can we match today? Sure thing! Mickey shirts and same shoes-different colors. Our 20 inch height difference makes pictures like this nearly impossible 😂

A few weeks ago, E planted some seeds in this little tin. He did it so carefully, he patted the soil down, covering each seed. He watered them daily. Making sure they got just the right amount of sun and love. Checking every day to see if they had begun to sprout. After days and days of nothing he started feeling discouraged. Not quite understanding why these seeds weren’t growing. On the outside he was doing everything right! Yesterday we noticed a little green poking out from the edge, we carefully moved some of the dirt out of the way. Buried underneath a layer of soil were these perfect seedlings. I’m realizing that in order for me to bloom and grow, I need to remove some of the soil that’s covering me. I need to push my way through the things that are holding me down. Whether it be my anxiety, relationships, negative thoughts etc. I need to take care of what’s inside. I’m starting to feel the warmth of the sun. A little more every day.
Thank you @admdms Grey’s Anatomy has never sounded so good!
