insta friday {two weeks worth}

another post to our week. the simple passing of days and hours periodically captured in a photo that isn't blurry.

i'm linking up with jeanett at life rearranged.  i'm akneisler  on instagram if you want to follow me.

life rearranged
the first two were instagram photos i just don't know where the actual ig photo went, so you get the original. and a little peak at some of the parts of my house. i want to do a house tour so badly, but it's still in progress. having a baby a month after moving in can make it difficult to finish.

we, being my other other half molly and i, got a wall in the baby's room done and i'm in love. so much more to do, but i am happy with the small things i'm getting done.

my built ins. {swoon} i love them. i love them for their organization and storage powers. 

i said to my son how great it is that he'll have a spot just for homework now (starting k in the fall) and ever since he's been so excited to do homework i've had to start giving him work to do. doubtful he'll feel that way in 6 weeks.

love this girl. we are working on potty training and it's going well. 

when i say we, i mainly mean my mother in law is doing it. ain't nobody got time for that!

lol. this kid. this was the day we put them outside with their clothes on and then surprised them with the sprinklers. naturally the clothes came off and they were being so silly and having such fun. until someone pooped on the patio. it's all fun and games till someone poops on the patio. three inches from the grass i might add. we don't even have a dog, but they knew to aim for the grass. 

reading and baby safety are a real priority to laine.

i can't do it all. its one or the other. kids or housework. so one day a week these two "big girls" as we call them come over and take over mama duties so i can clean, do laundry, pick up and have some down time around the house. its ah-MAZ-ing! they are there for four hours and i don't interact with the kids unless they need food. diapers done, girls dressed, kids played with= happy mommy!!

this third child of mine is the loudest and definitely strongest. 
though she be little she is mighty. 

swim lesson anxiety to the max. he dreads it. he wants to talk it out for two to three hours leading up to the actual 15 min ordeal. i can't even right now. i'm so emotionally tapped out from this kid whine/talking at me. i love him,i validate him, i encourage him, i tell him it's okay to be afraid, but it's not okay to let it control him. yesterday he actually understood and by the end enjoyed swim lessons. he even said, and i quote, "if i do this a few more days i might even like it."

 it's a christmas in july miracle. but you know what wasn't magical and amazing? two days ago. it was daddy's one day home and they were terrible.  swim lessons were an all around disaster. everyone was angry, screaming and just plain ole awful.  the hubby and i couldn't handle any more so after we got home we took advantage of another adult in the house and we went out for drinks. 
ahhhhh. that's better. 

our week has had some serious roller coaster moments. including chubby baby turning four months and rolling over back to tummy. AND sleeping all night! that's like the biggest moment in my life right now and i totally forgot to mention it. i am sleeping at least 7 hours a night! game changer for sure. 

i hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and i will hopefully blog more next week!


  1. Lately my 1 year old has decided to get up during the night. I miss 7 hours. Glad you are getting it!

  2. Love your built ins. I think I need some big girl helpers to come over as well when I need to get my cleaning done. That sounds like a smart idea.

  3. Wow! Those built ins are awesome sauce!
