Happiness is….

Watching Baby Ian(now 9 months) devour a mango(he really loves mangoes!) and hearing his laughter and watching him crawl into the fireplace. He’s everywhere these days! I have to have a sharp eye! And of course, baby proof everything.

Spending time with Mr. Picasso here. Zion is so independent and I love to watch him play with his brother. Of course, there are times that I have to remind him to be gentle with Baby Ian but boys will be boys right?
Picking vegetables( tomatoes, thyme, basil, you name it… ) from my overgrown garden for my meal. I love that feeling! Zion also counts the tomatoes when I pick them and recently he counted five tomatoes and said,” One, two, three, four, fives “tomatoeses” “. I thought well at least he’s pluralizing. He’s adding –es to all his plural nouns these daysSmile.

Having this Ergo Baby carrier. I’ve had since I had Zion who was more of a high maintenance baby. However, it’s been so handy lately because Baby Ian has been teething. I can multitask and if you’re a Mommy, multitasking is very important if you’re to get anything done! In case you’re wondering, we’re in the guest bedroom and that top sheet is a Diane Von Furstenberg that I scored from TJMaxx. I swear there’s no better place to shop. I ought to do a post on that.
I am linking this post to my dear friend’s Hollie’s post on her blog. Her blog is a must read for me and she chronicles her life in the best pictures. She’s awesome. O.k., friends, what’s on your happy list? I feel so blessed to have y’all. Much love to each of you! XX

P.S. These pictures were taken from my Instagram. I just joined and it’s so much fun! Follow me if you’re on there; @designaddictmom.
