| why does my little man look like such a big kid? 😰 I feel like every morning I wake & find that he's grown so much more over night.
.
🌿 speaking of waking up, I've been up since 5:30 am. Felix has decided he's an early bird, so here's to multiple cups of coffee, statement onesies & lots of playtime -- while I yawn through it all.

| oh you know -- just monkeying around, waiting for the weekend to come swinging on in. πŸ’

🐡 Felix has been loving his little @cheempo toys lately. 50% of the profits made from selling each cheempo goes to the @janegoodallinst πŸ™ŒπŸ» how awesome to find companies that give back?!

| hey @nasa, this little man loves space, he's always hogging the bed -- future employee perhaps? β˜„οΈπŸ›°
.
.
πŸš€ seriously though, little man wants his space, but totally disregards mine. always climbing to get a better view of what I'm doing, chasing me around the house and refusing to let me go anywhere without his company. he's so clingy these days, but I can't lie -- I love it.

| over the last couple of months, a few of my mama friends have tagged me to share a selfie & a few facts about myself and I keep putting it off, until today. right now. this very moment, soooo here I go:
.
.
⌬ I used to love taking selfies, but now I feel so awkward about them -- hence, this weirdly positioned photo.
⌬ I met my husband before a choir practice in our church corridor and even though he was super active in the church, I had never seen him before until that very moment. he was at the pulpit and in the worship team, and I had no idea, talk about embarrassing!
⌬ I'm OCD about my workspace. It needs to be fully equipped with supplies because if I start something and I don't have what I need (it could be a paper clip), I go into full throttle abort mission mode. ⌬ I've had multiple strangers on different occasions tell me that I look Iranian.
⌬ I drink lemon water all year round, but will only drink "lemonade" in the summer.
⌬ I won "high school wouldn't be the same without" award my senior year.
⌬ my favorite subjects in school were history, writing & literature.
⌬ I'm either overly committed or super disinterested -- I alternate between the two, but I can find no medium.

🌾 first time on grass tonight & he wasn't a fan. he's becoming such a brave little man. just look at that sweet face -- "uh, mom, help please." πŸ˜‚

| one thing I've loved about being a part of a big family is knowing that my kids will have uncles that are not much older than they are -- they've become instant besties.

🐢 my little brothers have even made Felix the leader of their "crew." πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

| happy first Father's Day to my best friend & baby daddy! 😍
.
.
🌿 on this day I want to thank you for making me a mother and being the best dad to our little Felix. I'm so happy and thankful  that our son (and I) have you in our lives. You're such a dedicated, sweet, fun, caring, strong, and loving person. Felix and I love you very much! I can't wait to see the bond between you and him grow because one of my favorite things is to watch you two together. So on this Father's Day, know that you're our whole world and we don't know what we'd do without you! πŸ’•

| starting with the Father's Day post early, but I just want to say I was blessed with one of the best dads on the planet and he deserves recognition every single day.
.
.
🌿there’s so much to say about my dad, but I guess what I really want to say is that my dad has always been my real life superhero β€” the voice of reason, a friend during all times and a stern face in the crowd when I lacked the courage to achieve things I knew I was capable of. thank you for pushing, supporting, and protecting me when others opted not to. thank you for making me laugh when all I wanted to do was cry, for demanding I settle for more than just okay and for loving me in every season including the unloveable ones. To my Tata, you are loved, cherished and admired always. & thank you for being the most loving grandfather to my sweet Felix -- the bond between you two makes me melt inside. πŸ’•
