in Memory Keeping

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’m participating in Ali Edwards’ Week in the Life! I’m super excited, as this is the first time I’m putting real effort into completing this project. I think it will be awesome to have a mini album that showcases what our life looks like right now, especially since Althea is growing up TOO fast, and things will be so different at this time next year! In an effort to keep things organized, and so I don’t forget the details when I go to put my album together next week, I’ve decided to post about each day here! I hope you enjoy a little peek inside our day-to-day life, beyond what we’d normally post on Social Media :)

Wednesday Reflections

Most days we are not sleep-cuddlers, but some days we wake up early enough to hug it out before climbing out of bed. Today we’re wearing the same shirt, from the Davis Family Reunion, which we didn’t actually attend.

Some days I get on the phone before I even get out of bed. Most days I take an extra few minutes to sleep. Yet another reason I’m so thankful for the ability to work from home.

Most days I have to wake up the bird, but today she jumped right up when I walked in the room and gave me the biggest smile. She’s the very best part of every single one of our days.

Most days Thea poops right before it’s time to leave (😂), so some days we give her some extra time to get it out before getting her dressed for the day. Every day she is a book lover like her mama, and she’s super excited about the new stack she received from the Easter Bunny!

Some days Justin works from home with me, and on those days he always makes me a delicious breakfast. He does all the cooking around here, thankfully, because I’m a complete mess in the kitchen.

Most days I use my Mac Mini for anything not work related, but when I do try to use the Macbook it runs like crap. Doing some updating in a desperate attempt to get it functioning better. I’ve had this thing since 2010, and I’m going to run it til it dies!

Some days we share the office. It works except in the rare moments when we’re both on a call and one of us has to leave the room. Most days I really like having him at arm’s reach ❤️

Most days these two can be found right here. One always napping, one always licking. Bailey and Roddy were our first babies, and they’re spoiled rotten. Bailey can be a grumpy old man sometimes, and we really need to watch him around Althea, but deep down he’s still the sweet little puppy we brought home 8 years ago. Roddy is a dog anomaly, especially of the Shih Tzu breed. We always say he is the one dog that must have been born without a breaking point. Thea can literally do anything to him, and he won’t even flinch in her direction.

Some days we have kitchen dance parties. Most days she gets her moves from her daddy. Lately, she’s been all about pointing her fingers and waving them around in the air, because that’s what she saw Justin doing. She also has quite the booty shake.

Most days “baby” goes everywhere she goes.

Some days we stop for ice cream at the end of our walk. Most days daddy shares more than mama does. Every day she wants more than either of us are willing to give her.

Most nights one of us reads a bedtime story, and every night we say our prayers. We start with “Now I lay me”, followed by The Lord’s Prayer, and end with lots of goodnight kisses. I hope this remains our tradition for years to come.

Some days I do yoga at lunchtime, some days I don’t get to it until after Thea’s in bed. Tonight is the latter, and it’s obvious to me how much I prefer getting it in during the day. Started if off with a 5-minute blogilates arm workout, followed it with more studying, and then it was off to bed before 10 pm.
