Happy 196 months of dating… And 13 years of marriage! Four homes, 3 cats, 2 kids and a literal cross the country move later, who would have guessed that a decision to be lazy and skip out on sightseeing with the group in order to nom fish and chips and enjoy the lower UK legal drinking age in a random hotel pub would eventually lead to this crazy, wonderful life.

So thankful for Emma’s old preschool! A couple days after I got home from the hospital with a preemie that had lost a scary amount of weight and had to be fed by a syringe around the clock in hopes of bringing his weight around*, I realized that Liam’s early birth also meant I’d need to be back at work 5 weeks earlier than I planned… and right as Emma’s summer school was ending. The last thing I wanted to deal with at the time was to also figure out what to do with my rambunctious 5-year-old for a month.

So so so happy that Emma was able to go back to the school she had been at since she was 2 years old! I’m relieved that I can just fall back into our old routine for one more month and Emma is thrilled to be back with her friends and teachers she adores before having to face the scary world of Kindergarten. ♥️♥️♥️

*note: hilarious to think about now that his weight is 97th percentile adjusted and 75th percentile unadjusted

Phew! The day I was both dreading and eagerly waiting for has come and gone…

…and Liam’s inguinal hernia has been repaired! 😅 He has to stay overnight at the hospital since he’s under 50 weeks of gestational age but seems to be handling everything like a champ. So thankful for the amazing doctors and nurses at Kapiolani, my mom for taking care of Emma while we were here all day and Ryan who is still running around on the various errands I sent him on (like picking up a subway sandwich for my dinner! 😋) while I now just get to relax and make myself at home in Liam’s new digs for the next 12 hours.
