amandabouzakine His face looks different every day. And I swear he's heavier each morning when I pick him up. Every week, his personality develops a little more. He's becoming such a (big) boy. I found some footed pajamas in the back of the closet and when we put them on him, for a minute I saw my baby again. It's truly unbelievable how quickly they grow. 1w

amandabouzakine First family bike ride of the year! Caleb was very sad when it was time to come home. "No home yet! More ride! More helmet!" 2w

amandabouzakine So many lines to draw, so many color options. I'm pretty excited that the warmer weather seems to be here to stay! From this day through the end of summer, he'll be coming inside each day covered in dirt and chalk dust. 2w

amandabouzakine Rain, rain, rain. So we introduced Caleb to the land of Legos today and I'm pretty sure the company has a new lifetime fan. 1mon

amandabouzakine Our sick little buddy. He's quite satisfied with how much "pooh" (he says it with the sweetest whisper) he's been allowed to watch these past few days. 2mon

amandabouzakine A morning coffee date, with a side of kids books, because they're basically the best. Local folks, great prices on used kids books at Book and Bar! 3mon

amandabouzakine I keep scrolling to this selfie we took a couple weeks ago. Lately, I'm feeling bummed that a photo of us together is a rare event. It's so unrepresentative of this phase of life, when I'm by his side all day long, playing with his trucks, reading book after book, running with him outside. Yet, hardly a photo of us playing together exists. This photo is my recent treasure - it shows perfectly the day when he insisted on wearing my scarf for hours, and how we kept ourselves holed up in our sunroom so we could feel the sunshine but avoid the brutal cold and wind outside. I keep telling Caleb, "You're my buddy. Do you know what that is? It's when we have a lot fun together and spend a lot of time together." Then he says, "buh-dee." There may not be many pictures that show us together, but he knows we're "buh-dees" and that will do just fine. I'm continually thankful for this boy and that I get to spend my days as his buddy. 3mon

amandabouzakine It's crazy to think of all the ups, downs, adventures, and love that have filled these past eight years. Happy anniversary to my guy.

Photo by @tanchiki during our post-wedding photo shoot in Rockport, MA. (It rained (a lot) in FL on our wedding day, so we did a photo shoot months later to get outdoor photos.)

amandabouzakine Snow has suddenly become one of my favorite things; there's so much snowy adventure to be had with our little guy. Today, we took him sledding down his biggest hill yet! If only bundling him up for the snow was about ten times faster . 4mon

amandabouzakine It's a snow globe outside; Caleb is with his grandparents; Taras and I are procrastinating on all the adulting we need to do today; and we're finding ways to make the Whole30 more enjoyable (unsweetened almond milk cappuccino for me). Cheers to Saturday, friends! 4mon
  •   emileerose Can't wait to see how you like it- the Whole30 was amazing for me 4mon
  •   seacoastlately Oh my gosh, I was just there!!! haha Have a great day! 4mon
  •   amandabouzakine @emileerose I'll def let you know! So far it's been an easy adjustment for us, just keeping our usual brown rice and quinoa out of the meals (we never eat much dairy). The going out to eat, though, is the hardest adjustment! We needed a reset on our eating out habits anyway, so it's for the best, haha! 4mon
