These two top the list, of course. 

Life has ups and downs...and I'm learning what that feels like more and more as I get older. We've had some yucky things going on this month (my grandma was diagnosed with cancer, Rooney's bedtime "routine" has officially been in whack-a-mole mode for S-I-X W-H-O-L-E M-O-N-T-H-S, I'm experiencing waves of prenatal anxiety, and some other really crappy things I can't blog about yet), so even though it may look like my life is full of gorgeous Instagram squares, please know that there are low lows going on as well. But I'm trying to focus on the good things, no matter how small. Like...

  1. Rolling luggage carts
  2. Costco
  3. Family restrooms
  4. Oxyclean
  5. That the baby didn't come yet! I really wanted him to have a June birthday.
  6. A husband to share parenting struggles with
  7. Long email updates from a faraway friend
  8. A staycation with Eric
  9. A sister who loves to have Rooney stay with her
  10. Beautiful maternity photos (I will share more soon, but here's a sneak peek)
  11. That Rooney sleeps through thunderstorms
  12. My job

  15. Edy's Grand Ice Cream Double Fudge Brownie
  16. Pitch Perfect 2
  17. A husband who comes home from work and immediately wants to take Roo to the park while I put my feet up
  18. Rooney's awesome teachers
  19. A magical Wednesday with Rooney last week
  20. A baby boy who appears to be healthy
