Friday Favorites

Time for Friday Favorites friends!!!

One.
You know I love a good comparison collage, so I’ve got a new one for you! A couple of weeks ago we went to Art on the Square in downtown Belleville and we snapped our yearly photo in front of the fountain!

I love how Jude is not looking in this year’s picture. #toddlers

Two.
And I couldn’t give you just one comparison this week so here’s another! We went to our favorite lumber yard yesterday to pick up some wood for BTR Woodworks and snapped this photo of Jude and Ezra.

Which made me remember snapping almost the exact same photo of Jude two years ago.

Cue all the tears for babies growing up way too fast!

I know I’ve said it many, many, many times, but if you haven’t signed up for Generation Good by Seventh Generation then what are you waiting for? I shared my most recent Healthy Baby Home Party pictures earlier this week and they are accepting applications for new hosts right now! Did I mention this is all FREE? Yeah you definitely need to sign up!

Four.
So I think Jude may have dropped his afternoon nap. I mean he hasn’t actually slept during nap time this week, and before this week it was taking longer and longer for him to fall asleep and he didn’t actually sleep for a long time when he did finally sleep. But last night he crashed HARD and actually asked to go to bed. And that happens like, never. I’m definitely not looking forward to no naps. When did your kids drop their nap?

Five.
This week we went to the Schlafly Farmers Market for the first time and had so much fun! It isn’t a huge market, but there was a ton of fresh produce and they were giving out little samples of free beer! We bought tamales from The Tamale Man and a few more beers from the inside bar and had ourselves a little party on the patio! They had live music and Jude had a blast dancing. I definitely think we will be back again a few times this summer!

    Those comparison pictures are so precious. My goodness. What sweet memories.

    Noah started giving up his nap at age 3. Some days he will nap, but then it totally ruins bed time so I don’t like it. Most of his friends started giving it up a few months before 3, while he has a friend who just turned 4 who still naps everyday. Every kid is different. I dreaded the transition but it wasn’t that bad. Just make sure they have quiet time for your own sanity.

    • Quiet time is totally necessary if naps are gone! But he’s been pretty good about them lately so we’ll see!

  • Loving your comparison photos, what a beautiful family! Xo, Stephanie
