Growing up I never really had a "father" or a grandfather, or any father like figures.. I never got to share that bond.
I was always envious of my friends who had super awesome, fun, loving and supportive dad's.
Dad's that would come to their sports practices/games, school concerts, class fieldtrips.. Dad's that would hug them extra tight as they were getting dropped off at school/or if they had a bad day. Dad's that I'd see out and about with their kiddos, pushing them on the swings, teaching them how to ride a bike, or swim. Cool dad's who would bake their kids a cake every year on their birthday, etc.
I may not have had someone like that in my life, but I know Colton will NEVER have to worry about a thing. He will never miss out. I know you'll always be there for him, no matter what. Jordan is more than I could have ever hoped for! As a partner and as a parent. He is so kind, compassionate, loving, easy going and patient. Not sure how I got so lucky. Colton is one lucky ass dude to have you as a father!! I love watching you with him.
You're my person, Happy Father's Day JP 😘

Took the ferry to Elba Island, where Napolean was exiled.
Trying to squeeze in as much as possible, we climbed the Medici Fortress and explored military bunkers and amazing views of the island. Maybe I should not have worn sandals 🤦♀️
After the climb to the top on cobblestone, we were all happy to have granite limone :p.
Bonus: Naples style pizza
Next up: all day boat ride around the island. We’ll see how it goes. Projected 8-15mph winds😱

When we were away with my parents something rather wonderful happened. My reluctant reader asked to borrow my guide book and then started to read to us about all the places we’d visited on our adventures. Yes there were some interesting pronunciations from the back of the car, but the foreign words didn’t stop him from trying. He didn’t give up and just kept reading. It was a one day wonder, but a wonder nonetheless. I still dream of a time when he might regularly sit with his head in a book. But for now I just accept the wins whenever they come along. He certainly doesn’t take after me and my bookworm traits when it comes to reading. #reluctantreaders#myson❤️ How about your kids?

Back to reality today after the most amazing weekend with this little beaut and her wonderful parents, we’re now counting down the days till our next meet 😍
For the first hour or so after Knox wakes up my main goal is to just seeeee if he has any interest in cuddling and letting me sleep longer. The short answer is, No. he will lay down and then scream “WAKE UP, EAT LUNCH!” But at least I try, and will continue to. Luckily we have the best dad ever who sometimes let’s me sleep in, although I guess on Father’s Day I am required to get up and make breakfast, watch him put his new lawn mowers together and let him enjoy hugs and kisses and as much food as he can imagine on his day. He doesn’t ask for anything so we try to find something that will satisfy that need. Knox painted him a mug, and helped put said mower together as his gift...rockstar wife right here.... I did all the handy work around the house to slowly attempt to make our house look less of a mess. We spent the day being lazy and loving one another and obsessing over our kid, per usual; like when he’s in his car seat and just saying “BOO, dada! BOO dada!” Over and over and we have to act scared all 593 times he does it. It was a good Father’s day, as we waited and listened and felt rain and welcomed it to remind me of Chicago and an excuse to just stay inside and find reasons to cuddle. We didn’t get to see our dads today beyond a FaceTime chat but they know we love them and are always happy to chat any chance we get! To all the dads out there, thank you for all you do and being incredible role models for these kiddos. Sunday On 🤛
Since they were little, both twins have been interested in cars, buses and bikes. They have outgrown their little toy ones, but they could not help to jump on these ones from our neighbours when they saw how they matched their outfits as we were going out for some grocery shopping today. Penelope has asked us already to get her a purple car when she grows up and Almudena is also clear about the fact that she wants hers in #yellow! We love the idea already :)
These dads did an amazing job today as they allowed me to ask them some tough questions on being a Father, the transparency, regrets and accomplishments were truly heart felt. Thank you! @dennispwhite@touchofclasssalon@pastordanielcruz I ♥️my church
The one that stole my sleep. Poppy totally ruined us and set the bar so high after sleeping through 7pm-7am from around 8 weeks of age. This kid is awake until at least 9pm, sometimes midnight. And will wake up a minimum of twice between then and 6am. And poppy has also decided she now needs to be awake late, wake throughout the night and be up before the sun every morning. I’ve reached the point where I think I’ve actually forgotten what not being tired feels like 🤨😴

Currently procrastinating packing for our Tofino camping trip. And we leave home at 5 am. So I should probably get on that. 🙈🤣 But in the meantime here’s an adorable photo of these two lovebirds making me so excited for sandy beaches & sunshine for dayyyyz. ✨
