Sometimes we're all in our own little world 🎶
Sometimes we just want to perform 🎶 (we did see Tristan and all his performance glory before this video)) **I do not own the copyright to this music*
From this... to this. Tessie has the snuggling thing figured out. How did I get so lucky with this dog? She’s so full of #love and doesn’t hesitate to show it—to anyone who might potentially cross her path. Especially if you have treats. 😉 #bostonterrier#dogsofinstagram#ohmyheart
:: SEVEN MONTHS :: For two little girls who aren’t close to crawling, they sure to get around the lounge room like crazy. It seems rolling, wriggling & pushing back will get you places. They’re obsessed with exploring textures right now, they’re either scratching, touching & grabbing everything or putting it in their mouths to inspect.
Penelope is suffering awfully with teething, I wish they’d just cut for her! It’s making her day sleeps really challenging for us both but she seems to be somewhat settled through the night - touch wood! She’s my solid food eating super star! I’m trying to pace her because I’m sure she’d just keep eating. This baby girl is a hoot! She’s always up for a scrunched nose smile or a silent, open mouthed grin. She & Jameson play silly games together so he’s dubbed her ‘funny Pippy’. She’s a bit of a daddy’s girl too, lots of eyes on daddy and easy smiles for him. She’s suffering a bit of separation anxiety, but is thankfully comforted if she can at least lay eyes on me. Teething frustrations aside, this girl is still such a sunshiney joy to us.
Scarlett is the best cuddler going around, she snuggles right into the crook of your neck and it’s perfect! This baby girl is some sort of magical unicorn baby, she puts herself to sleep anytime, anywhere. She just rolls on her tummy, pops her thumb in closed her eyes. Magic! When people ask how I manage twins, she’s the answer right now. She is coy and sweet and always up for a giggle, especially if she’s being tickled or we play peekaboo. She adores her siblings.
These girls are such a joy! They still share a cot and even though they move around in it a lot, they don’t seem to wake each other too much. They’re interacting with each other more and more, just yesterday they were playing in the lounge room, propped up on their tummies calling out to each other over and over with the biggest grins on their faces. Oh my heart!
It’s always a gamble taking a toddler to a restaurant. Sometimes they will sit in the high chair, read books, play with their toys and are little angels and then other days they don’t feel like sitting still or eating and just run riot. Yesterday we went for a beautiful lunch, Audrey sat still for just long enough for me to take this photo before taking her shoes off, spilling her lunch down her white dress and taking off through the garden. But @mck_stu and I still managed to finish our meals (by taking turns chasing her🙈) and a glass wine and we got to watch our little princess entertain the rest of the venue so I still feel like we are totally winning 🤗 #letthembelittle#blessed
Precious Poon, one whole year ago. #ohmyheart Fun fact: We discovered, not long after we swooped her up, she's got spots of the constellation Cassiopeia right on her nose. Suitable for a pup named Luna ❤
Last night I had the immense honor of singing "For Good" from Wicked with Tony Award Winning Broadway Star Kelli O'Hara as part of the Grand Opening Gala for the new Daines Concert Hall and the 50th Anniversary of the Chase Fine Arts Center. I have idolized Kelli ever since I first heard her voice on my recording of Light in the Piazza when I was a teenager longing to pursue this field as a career. Being able to work with her these past few days, I've seen that she is truly just as lovely and genuine on the inside as she is on the outside. I aspire to be as honest and generous in my work as she, and to be the kind of genuine and loving person that she is. Also, I have never been more proud to be an Aggie than I was last night seeing all of my incredible professors and colleagues presenting their work at the gala on our beautiful new stage! Utah State University's Caine College of Arts is a force to be reckoned with!!! Brava tutti to all!!! I'm so grateful to everyone who made these renovations and this event possible. Thank you!!! #kelliohara#tonyawardwinner#broadway#idol#dreams#inspiration#rolemodel#mentor#cainecollegeofthearts#utahstateuniversity#americanfestivalchorusandorchestra#gratitude#grateful#tears#ohmyheart#grinningfromeartoear
