Summer Fun with Montem {plus a Giveaway!}

Having true summer weather has lent itself to many days spent outside (but only during morning/evening times. We're not crazy! ;) enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. I'm not sure if it's just me, but I swear the sky feels bigger and closer here. It is truly a wonder. This post is sponsored by Montem. As always all opinions are my own.

So how have we been enjoying our days? 

Lots of pool time!
The girls have taken to the water like little fishes! Even Clark wants in on the action.

One item that always accompanies us on our adventures? This amazing indoor-outdoor blanket from Montem! It is silky smooth, lightweight and cleans up easily. I like that I can carry it around with me without it dragging me down since I'm already hauling All. The. Things. (hashtag momlife, right?)Summer Fun with Montem {plus a Giveaway!}
Brian has even started to refer to this as "his blanket" because he likes to curl up under it at night before bed! That in itself is like the ultimate gold star.

I'm so thrilled to be able to giveaway one of these blankets to one lucky reader! Enter below using the Rafflecopter widget. Giveaway is open from Wednesday, July 11th through Tuesday, July 17th 2018 and ends at 12a CST. Winner will be notified by email. Good luck!
And if you need us, we'll be outside.

Growing up Clark // ten month edit

Just look at this man-child!!! If I'm not kissing on him, I'm ever-so-gently pinching his cheeks or petting his hair. I'm in awe of his very being every day and feel so blessed that he is mine. Only two more months until he is one year old. Just staahpp already.

The biggest development this month has been speech. I say that loosely as he only says "mom-mom" and "da-da" BUT it is clearly said in context because he makes eye contact and is usually crawling his way towards us. His lil voice is the best.

The kid wants to walk and stand up independently already. Serious cruising along couches has been occuring. We all feel like he is going to surprise us one day and just get up and g-o. It'll be interesting to see if he follows both sisters by walking at eleven months (I'll keep you posted ;)

Sleeping. Or lack thereof. We're working on sleeping through the night. I've heard it can be done. I'm not so sure I'm convinced considering none of my babies has done it. I'm also not comfortable with crying-it-out so if you have any suggestions, I'm all ears! (eyes? haha)

The telltale signs of teething have showed up again. I wonder if he'll cut another 6 teeth all at the same time. *Spare me*

Clark, what do you have in store for us this month?

Greetings from Arkansas!

Doesn't that title just conjure up images of old post cards sold on boardwalk piers and at tourist destinations? No? Just me?
Greetings from Arkansas!
Well, friends, we are settling in to our new State; after a full 24 hour day of travel (and I'm not even exaggerating. I'm still recovering. It may even be its own travel post) waiting over a week for our moving freight to arrive and adjusting to the time zone change & weather differences, it has been a very f-u-l-l three weeks!

Brielana’s 4th birthday / Fourth of July was a nice break from unpacking boxes. Celebrating many, many things this summer with a grateful heart.

Thank you for sticking around & being patient as we embrace our new season of life. I have a few fun posts to share about a couple of new-to-us products, a Birthday recap and a more in-depth moving post, because who doesn’t like those?! ;)
