Life Lately

Summer always has a way of making you feel like the days aren’t long enough, and this summer has been no different.

So much has changed over the last four months, but most days it feels like nothing has changed at all.

Marlowe has settled so nicely into our little family.  Scout and Griffin have been so unbelievably good to us, as well as Marlowe.  I seriously, couldn’t ask for anything more.

We’re spending these summer days taking in all that this crazy life has to offer us.  We’re waking up early, going to bed late, and squeezing in as much fun as possible.  I’m torn between our amazing routine (which keeps everyone well slept, well fed, and well behaved) and just going with the flow and chaos.  Fortunately, because we’ve had such a great schedule for so long, the kids do really well if we stray from that routine occasionally.  Marlowe, on the other hand, will be the only Lex child that will most likely never know routine.  This kid naps in the car, in my arms, nursing, on the floor, on the changing pad, in the grass, and anywhere else that will allow her to catch a few z’s.  Most of her meals are fed in the drivers seat of my car in parking lots before or after activities, grocery shopping, park playdates, and vet/doctor appointments.  I can’t think of the last time that she’s finished a meal on her own without having to be pulled off to help someone else, somewhere else.  And she has been a saint through it all.  I am the luckiest mama ever.

Here are a few photos from our awesome summer so far…..
