BABY DADDY // melts my heart seeing these two play together. 💖 Ilija loves his dad so much that hes stopped asking for me in the morning. I don’t mind so much, but does this mean I can finally sleep in? Short answer, nope. ☹️ #babydaddy#nosleepingin
My sweet dude hasn’t been feeling great. But he sleeps so much cuter when he’s not feeling good.
It’s so weird to watch how fast he’s growing up. Each day he crawls different, makes different faces, makes different noises. And recently, he’s sleeping differently.
Like me, a 30 year old man. Propped up, mouth open, flat on his back, arms at his side, with a slight head tilt.
When he feels good, he sleeps like his mom on his stomach. What’s does it mean? WHAT DOES IT MEAN.
So overwhelmed by all the lovely comments and messages! It can be a bit daunting putting yourself out there but I feel even more excited after receiving all your support.
Since starting this project at the end of last year, there have been a few bumps in the road but the bumps have made me more determined. I've just had to go over or around them and not allow them stop me in my tracks.
When the bumps arose it was the thought of reading "Believe in Pixie Hart" to my Lola Lou and other families enjoying MY story at bedtime which is what kept my dream alive. And although I'm sure there may be a few more bumps along the way I will keep chasing the dream all whilst riding the waves of life.
Is this a time warp?! 😱 @catiemac89, did you go back in time to take a picture with yourse... oh wait, that’s just Amelia 😅
If Amelia grows up to be even half as beautiful as her mother, she’s gonna be a stunner! 😍😍 I’m so lucky!
These were the two most important people in Roy's life - his beating hearts. I witnessed a man who showered his children - Taylor and Roy III - with constant "I love you" "Yes you can" and "I'm so proud of you." Roy was a father who worried about whether or not he was remembering all of his gathered life's wisdom to leave with his kids "I've got to remember to share this with the kids" was a common statement of his. It was truly amazing to witness how he would GLOW when he was with or talking to either one of his kids. What a site to see. He was naturally affectionate, silly as hell - to keep them laughing - they often did! He was ALWAYS available for them - he was their most fervent cheerleader. Thank you for sharing a small slice of your fatherhood journey with me Roy. You touched these two Angels deeply... you did good Roy. ❤️🙏
Rest in Peace @IAmRoyHobbs
I’ve become dis-enchanted with smart phones lately because I got really good about not checking apps much a few months ago but I started to notice that my app checking was starting to go up again.
So It got me thinking – Do I really want to have this willpower battle my entire life?
AND! Is it even feasible to still be a working professional / normal person and have a baisc phone?
I’m diving in for 60 days to see if this can work and will let you know how it goes.
First notes: I tried to just activate an old flip phone but was having problems with texting other smart phones and group messaging didn’t work. I quickly decided that wasn’t going to be feasible so I googled around and found that Verizons new phones will do group messaging.
I went to a Verizon store and bought a LG Exalt LTE (168 bucks) – it is a flip phone that has lte, can support email, can’t download apps, does group messaging, has internet browser, can watch youtube videos (although screen is tiny), can’t stream pandora or spotify, can make a wifi hotspot or teather internet.
I will keep my iPhone 7 to stream music during workouts, use google maps (no data needed – it has a gps chip like a garmin), take pictures for Instagram. So it is true I will now have 2 devices at certain times but I consider it kind of like having a tablet or some aux. device only when needed.
