Last week, our family welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world. Leah and Ted’s daughter, Harper Alice, was born on Thursday, and we are so in love! Alice is a family name on both sides (Ted’s mother and Leah’s – and my – grandmother were Alice and Mary Alice, respectively), and it sounds so lovely with the name Leah and Ted picked out for her first name. Harper is already the chubbiest little nugget and we’re all pretty obsessed with her – especially her big brother, Liam. Liam has been staying with us while his parents and baby sister have been in the hospital, and my kids have LOVED having him here. He’s such a sweet, loving little boy! Later today, the new family of four will be reunited at home. I can’t wait to get my hands on that baby again!

Yay, it’s October, and now we have Halloween’s fake scariness to distract us from the world’s real scariness! Yay. The kids have both decided on their Halloween costumes, both of which require some degree of craftiness on my part. Annie’s has one element that is going to be particularly tricky (she’s going to be a…

Ooooh boy what a year this week has been. Is anyone else totally exhausted? I think this week my TV will only tune into home renovation shows, cartoons, and The Good Place (omg if you’re not watching this show, you need to).
