First official fall weekend is in the books!

Annnnd we’re wearing our Halloween PJS.

We kicked off last week by celebrating Eddie’s birthday.

My boys!

I cannot handle him. I can barely even nurse him because he just looks up at me and smiles and coos. It is EVERYTHING!!

My little hockey babe!

These two cuties cuddling in bed.

I mean. He is edible.

We went on our first fall weekend adventure!

Matching shirts of course.

The weather was amazing. Like low 60s! My favorite.

This sweet pea.

We had an apple cider slushie!

I can’t even begin to explain how overboard Eddie goes with pumpkins. He gets INTO IT.

They look like twins here to me!

And OMG my little old man baby. So elderly.

Eddie got this loaded oreo brownie. Whaaaat.

Pumpkin.

I mean no one is ever as happy as he is to see me… hahahah.

I prepped a bunch of stuff for the week. Some roasted veggies, a batch of quinoa and pesto too.

Emilia and I made some pumpkin muffins.

She helped me cut berries for the week.

Then she promptly passed out on the couch! Haha. Spontaneous toddler naps on the couch are the best.

Annnd on to the last week of September! NUTS!!!

Waiting at preschool drop off!

The pumpkin cream cold brew is just the best drink ever.

So many pretty morning skies this week.

Her outfits kill me. Elsa dress, leopard socks, rainbow backpack, headphones.

Smirk smirk.

Brought out some old Halloween costumes this week!

Still verrrry into makeup.

What a great day this was.

Happiest boy!

My little hockey player.

Some early birthday treats for Eddie! His birthday is tomorrow!

Also have you tried these cookies?!

Fun cousin time too!

We made banana bread. Max has been begging to make it for a few weeks.

Her little teeth kill me. And his smile!

Promptly sat on the kitchen floor after hockey to eat this banana bread. Ha.

Cutest!!

And the most cuddliest baby ever. Is cuddliest a word? It is now.

Crazy that it’s almost the middle of September. How on earth is this baby three months old today?! I can’t believe it! This week every time I nursed him, he would just give me this huge smile and giggle and do it for a few minutes straight. Every time! He is a dream! Max is […]

I can’t believe it!

This week every time I nursed him, he would just give me this huge smile and giggle and do it for a few minutes straight. Every time! He is a dream!

Max is still absolutely obsessed. Always wants his picture taken with Jordan.

Emilia and I (and Jordan, of course) went apple picking with some friends on Friday morning!

Um this could be a Hunter ad! Haha.

Apples are her fave.

Getting to the end of the sunflowers here.

We had so much fun!!

Went mini golfing this week too.

That neon blue water… haha.

Hi many times this is the only way I get anything done.

Morning snuggles for everyone.

I can’t even handle him!!!

Hockey started this week!

Fave egg in a hole on sourdough.

This has to be impossible.

We did another make-your-own pizza night… the kids basically ask to do it every single day.

Fun fact: Max’s favorite part is the crust.

Have a lovely week!

Labor Day weekend comes to a close…

And we had a super full week!

My handsome boy on his first day of school. He’s just the best.

He was super sad to leave Jordan all day. It was cute but heartbreaking!

So I put pictures of Jordan in his lunchbox and both his and Emilia’s backpacks. They loved it.

Then we had make-your-own-pizza night as a new back-to-school tradition.

So good.

Then it was this girl’s first day of school! I can’t believe it.

Had to kiss doggy goodbye! Doggy visits the vet every morning, if you can’t tell… he gets all sorts of accessories too.

She loved it.

Then it was the two of us.

My little pup.

Reunited!

Super excited for school!

I’d like her backpack in my size.

Love of my life.

Cheeseboard snacks.

Burrata snacks.

Best thing ever watching baby Cooper eat meatballs.

Celebrated my brother’s birthday!

Cousins!! We got to visit our new baby niece/cousin. She is the sweetest and makes Jordan look huge.

He is just so edible.

Tacos please.

Celebrated our cousin’s bridal shower!

I wear this baby nonstop!

That blonde hair sparkle!

Egg salad prep for the week is the easiest.

One of the best house salads I’ve made. With crispy potatoes.

And my little old man to finish out the long weekend!

Our last week of summer was amazing!

Tomorrow starts back to school for us and while I’m super excited I’m also so sad!

Since I had Jordan on the day that school ended last year, it was like all schedule and structure went out the window in one single day. It was like we were in our own little world and everything around us stopped. Now, it feels like it’s starting back up again. All the feels!

Morning wakeups are the best.

Thrilled the pumpkin cream cold brew is back at starbucks.

Happy bubs!

This is one of my easiest cheater dinners if we’re out of everything. I cook down onions and garlic, then baby yukon gold potatoes or sweet potatoes. Stir in a bunch of chopped kale (or whatever greens you have!) at the very end, then top with…

An egg! Whomp whomp… I forgot to take a pic of the finished dish.

We rented out a theater with a few friends to see the Paw Patrol movie. It was SO GOOD!

They were focused.

I love this baby.

We had our meet the teacher day at school! Eeeep!

So many morning snuggles this week.

Um hello is she 13? 100% dressed herself and I loved it.

We went to the pirate game!

It.was.so.hot.

This view.

Lips and cheeks! And sweat.

Max loved this.

It was also a fireworks night! And super late.

Emilia loves sleep like no one else.

A final summer treat with our serious faces.

And today was baby Cooper’s baptism!! I want to keep these face cookies forever.

Into a new week we go!

Another week of summer down!

I am so weirdly emotional about summer ending! The fall is always my favorite time of year and I’ve loved this time for as long as I can remember – even in the years where I was out of school and I didn’t have kids. But this year, I’m just so sad!

I knew this summer would be unlike any other, with having a new baby. Technically getting more time with the kids (all the recipes you’ve seen the last two months were ones I shot before Jordan was born!) and snuggling my last baby. I’m so sad that it’s coming to an end. It’s like everything at once – Max starting school again (like, for “real” – first grade – it’s serious!), Emilia going to school for the first time, all coinciding with the end of the “4th trimester” and Jordan growing more. I’m just a ball of emotion! It’s like I’m having one of those moments where I know my kids are as little as they are ever going to be.

So this upcoming week is our last full week of summer break and I want to make the most of it.

These two played together SO MUCH this week, it blew my mind. I mean, they always play together but they played for HOURS on end. It’s like they subconsciously know that school is starting soon and they won’t have their days together.

Um hello this is my favorite sight.

Garden veggie PJs!

What are these flower plants with the little pepper like things?!

Made my grilled buffalo chicken sandwiches for dinner one night.

The kids were asking for my pumpkin muffins. These are THE BEST.

And made a batch of my coconut zucchini bread. OMG this is SO GOOD. And if you use vegan chocolate chips, it’s vegan!

Max got a haircut and wanted to model it with his “creepy face.” As you can see, he is still in his Nike obsession.

I want to eat him up.

Took a little trip to one of our favorite places.

This is why I love the Doona so much!

I’d like to live in this.

Our morning wake ups are the best.

My most favorite girl ever.

Happiest boy!!

Max had a giggle attack while playing outside and kept telling me to take pictures of his posing like this. It was absolutely hilarious! He was laughing so hard.

Can’t get enough of my little loves!

I mean… HOW?! Seriously. Where the heck is the time going. THIS IS CRAZY!

Anyway, this week. Here’s what we did!

Playground and splash pad fun.

Baby dino.

We had a s’mores campout. This s’mores set is one of our favorite toys.

Max and I shopped for his school supplies! It was SO fun!

Someone’s getting CHEEKS.

We went to the history museum!

I surprised the kids the morning of. They are SO into dinosaurs right now – mostly Emilia – but her interest has reignited Max’s love for them too. The last time we had been there, he was three and she was only four months or so!

Max wanted to show Jordan everything.

They had so much fun.

Baby Cooper came with us too!

Emilia got these dino puppets and she seriously has not put them down. I mean, she is sleeping with them right this minute. It’s hilarious.

Smiley boy!

The boys.

Max and Eddie went to the U.S Amateur.

His morning wake ups are my favorite! It’s like unwrapping a present every single morning.

I feel so lucky. Jordan looks so terrified. Ha.

I made the best Sunday dinner of the entire summer.

Peach cobbler to finish things off!

Ahhhh and ready for monday.

Another week!

While we’re back home now, we started out the week in our favorite place!

How cute!

All about fishing this last week.

Love love love.

Vacation mornings are the best.

Sporty spice.

We played mini golf on the fly. Was kind of tricky lifting the stroller up all the steps!

This smoked potato taco on the bottom was to die for.

Had to make a pit stop for cookies!

This was the last day it was this clear. Come mid-week, there was a smoke haze over the lake from the wild fires.

Emilia requested my dad’s blueberry pancakes with “shaving cream” every day.

They had so much fun on the beach!

Emilia asked every single day to go down to the beach and work on her “bakery.” See above. Her bakery.

This bakery was very serious business and also served ice cream.

My favorite view ever!

Aside from this one.

Jordan’s like why am I always being fed in the front seat of the car?

I’m thinking his hair may have a little curl to it!

Muffins in the morning.

Can you tell Max wants to wear Nike 24/7? It’s a constantly laundry cycle in this house trying to wash the three outfits he has so they are ready to go.

Another favorite spot! Came home with all the things.

Jordan seemed to wake up SO much this week!

This crepe was everything.

So was this beach sandwich! Grilled chicken, bacon, avocado, red onion, ciabatta.

Snuggles on the beach.

Emilia’s first maxi dress!

Kilwin’s chocolate peanut butter is the best ice cream ever.

A view from bay harbor golf course.

Sweet smiles once we got home!

We continued out carbcation this weekend too.

He’s so smiley now!

Glad to be home but missing this place!

Week 31 from my favorite place!

But first, here’s what we did last week.

Max had golf camp!

Max + his BFF + Emilia who thinks all of his friends are her BFFs. She is the quintessential little sister and it’s adorable.

This boy.

This is what happens when you go to a pool party and have a huge diaper explosion and your mom only has long sleeve sleepers in the 97 degree heat. Naked baby!

Siblings.

Then we road tripped to northern michigan! Stopped every few hours to feed this babe.

Stopped at Cabela’s where Emilia had the time of her life.

And we made it!

Sunset golf.

Uncle Will!

Matching bros.

This is my favorite outfit of Emilia’s.

Do you think Max is into Nike?

Blooms!

This water is life.

I want to frame this.

And this!

I wish I had a gardener.

The brightest baby smile!

He’s “her baby.” When he cries, she often comes over to me and asks very seriously “mama, do you think he wants me?”

And his baby!

This view gets me every time.

This aperol spritz was amazing! My first in a year.

This color palette.

I have fed this baby all over the place the last few days. We eat everywhere.

Max found petoskey stones!

No words.

Wow.

This is what I’m doing all day every day. I love it!

Her perfect top knot!

S’mores prep.

S’mores for life.

Perfection.

This is so serene.

Like this!

And this! My little glow worm.

Still my favorite lunch. Or breakfast. Or even dinner.

Summer blooms.

This picture makes me so happy! I can’t believe they are mine!

Roasted broccoli on repeat always.

Biggest eyes!

Mini golf date! It was Emilia’s first time.

She loved her pink ball.

And this was perfect because Max has golf camp this week!

Perfect mini golf spectator.

Finished off with a late summer sky.

Oh and ice cream.

The happiest.

A perfect sunflower that makes me think of my favorite perfume at 12 years old.

HOW is he six weeks old?!

Adore his little random smiles.

My favorite girl!

Oh hello lobster fries!

And my boys!

I had a bunch of great photos from today too, but then I got a new phone and lost everything from this morning on. Let’s just say the highlight was the perfect burger at acorn!

Littlest love to finish off the week!
