A Month In Instagrams

One of my favorite things to do when I get a quick second in my day is to look back through my old Instagram photos. It’s fun to see all the fun moments from our days and to remember special firsts and even just the beauty in the little every day details of our lives. Here is a little peek into what this past month looked like as seen through the eyes of my Instagram feed.

Our Little Urban Farmer

Yesterday our little family welcomed six (yes, SIX) new members. They happen to be baby chicks who we will be raising as egg layers and we were so excited to introduce them to our daughter.

We told her that Daddy would be bringing home some “pio pios” (that’s what we call baby chicks, because in Spanish the baby chicks say “pio pio” instead of “peep peep”), but we weren’t sure how it would go.

VIDEO: Fern and the Cat

Every Friday my baby goes over to her grandma’s house for a few hours in the morning so I can get some work done. Since she’s been doing this regularly over the past couple of months she’s developed a keen interest for Grandma’s cat Bianca (we only have a dog, which is probably part of the attraction), and last week while she was there my mother-in-law took a little video of them and sent it to me and I thought it was pretty cute. You’ll be able to see Fern pulling herself up in the video as well – her new favorite trick!
