My sweet Ollie.

Before we got a kitten, several people told me about how their kitties changed their lives for the better.  I now completely understand what they were saying.  Ollie is the sweetest little thing, and makes my day-to-day life (while Derek is at work) so much more exhilarating.  Such a great little guy.  He is growing up so much though…I just want him to be teensy forever.

We are starting to make plans for the holidays.  Any suggestions on what we should do with Ollie while we are gone?  We don’t have many friends that will be in town, or who aren’t allergic, and while we could take him with us wherever we go, travelling with cats isn’t exactly the easiest thing ever.  Any suggestions?

A new addition to the family

Last week Derek and I finally got our sweet little kitten. And oh boy is he something! He is 12 weeks old and teensy. Super playful and cuddly and so well behaved. We think he likes our home so far. :) However, we don’t have a name for him yet!! Boy names are so difficult it seems. Sigh. It’ll come to us…

Meow!

Sigh…I just want a kitten.  Every day I look on Craigslist for kittens.  Derek and I will probably go to an adoption event at some point…possibly.  Then I just saw this post on a lovely blog that I frequently visit called Paper n Stitch.  Which just furthered my need for some feline love.  (Sorry all you cat-hater friends of mine out there…my cat is going to be the coolest though.  You’ll see.)

(FYI I just added in the “loneliness” bit to add a little drama…for the most part.  Haha.)

–In other news, I will be posting actual photos of my apartment soon.  It’s finally getting close enough to being finished-feeling that I feel like I can photograph it.–

He may have had 3 ice creams, some 
gummy bears, & chocolates all between the hours of 4:30 and 5:30pm, but hey, 🤷🏻‍♀️. It was the #museumoficecream for goodness sake! Such a fun afternoon! 🍦🍧🍭 #wildercobalt I’m so sad I missed this beautiful beach adventure @_derekhansen & #wildercobalt had this morning! Looks like my kiddo is busting some serious moves on this sand dune! 🕺🏼 Love you, my wild boy!

📷: @_derekhansen Wilder was pretty sad to take down the Halloween decorations, so I pulled out some of my paper scraps from @urbanic and threw together a little Thanksgiving craft to hopefully start to get him excited for the next round of holidays! 🦃🎄🎅🏻 Of course I ended up doing 90% it it myself, but...🤷🏻‍♀️

#wildercobalt #thanksgivingcrafts Started the day/night as a robot 🤖...ended it as a dragon 🐉. Super glad we put a solid 2 days of work into the robot costume, and I went to Target last night at 10:00 for the dragon as backup (#becausetoddlers). 🤷🏻‍♀️😂🙈 Wilder had a blast trick or treating, despite the fact he is battling a nasty cold. #wildercobalt #halloween2017 This little firecracker is everything x infinity + 1. I’m more thankful for him than I can express, & more blessed by him than he will ever know. #wildercobalt Last night was the first evening I've gotten to see our Halloween window after dark. That rose gold spider web is even more magical and glittery at night! So proud of our handiwork on this one! ✨🕸 We got our copy today, and Wilder, Dina and I read 1/2 of it before naptime! So so beautiful -- mind blowing work of art, @casey_fritz! ✨ Today Wilder and I had a major @disneyland / @californiaadventurepark adventure. We got there before the park opened, and stayed until almost 7pm (super long day for us, since we are pass holders)! The parks weren't even packed, we waited no longer than 15 min for anything, and did as much as we could pack in. At the end of the day, Wilder still didn't want to leave, so I promised another visit soon. Taking a kid this young can be a challenge, but to me it's the most magical age so far and it just gets better every time. He loves it, and plays hard, excited around every little turn. We had the most fun today, I feel so happy. We said goodnight to each other with a huge, super tight hug and big kiss. My sweet boy. 🎈✨ #wildercobalt #californiaadventure #disneyland Getting to spend the week with my family was so lovely, despite that pesky hurricane canceling all of our plans. The quality time we got together was precious. •
PLUS...happy birthday sweet Jude! You are 3! 🎈🎈🎈
