erikampowell They kill me with their cuteness. ️ Daddy's been paneling the interior walls of the treehouse today and Sloane and I have been discussing what colors we should paint the floors and stairs. Little Whit has had a stomach virus this week, so we are real glad she's well and smiling today. Happy Saturday, friends! #operationgreenhouseplayhouse #scenesaroundthegreenhouse 2d

erikampowell Two little Indians. ️We are so thankful for Sloane's school and her teachers! Had a delicious thanksgiving lunch there yesterday. And with two cousins in the same school and grandparents there too, it felt like a real family thanksgiving. Takes all the hassle out of the holiday when someone else prepares the meal, next year maybe we'll just do our family thanksgiving dinner at the preschool. @htimsnahgem @beverlycpowell @leahbpowell @baynp 2d

erikampowell My #empfridayfavorites this week is this charcoal portrait of Sloane. ️ I cried when @emilymorganbrown delivered it last week. There really aren't adequate words to express how precious this is to me. If anyone is looking for a special gift for someone, the gift of Emily's talent in the form of a portrait will surely make the recipient cry tears of joy. Now I can't wait to have it framed... I'm going to go ahead and buy two frames, so in 2 years we can hang Whitney's portrait beside Sloane's. TGIF, friends! #embportraiture @emilymorganbrown emilymorganbrown.com 3d

erikampowell When it's way early in the morning and she cries in her bed because she wants out I try to be tough.... I give myself a pep talk on the way to her bedroom telling myself, "tell her to lay down and go back to sleep that it's still nighttime". But, when I get into her bedroom and she's standing there with that teddy bear under her arm like she's ready to go, I can't help but scoop her into my arms and invite her to join me downstairs for some coffee/warm milk and cartoons. #scenesaroundthegreenhouse 3w
  •   mnpistolis Amen! 2w
  •   janepotrykus meant to comment on this yesterday, but :) because you'll remember these moments. 2w
  •   wedeane19 Adorable :) May I ask what sippy cup that is? 2w
  •   mpz8 So cute. It's ok. They will be teens soon and you will miss these days terribly. I promise!! 2w
  •   erikampowell @wedeane19 it's the Nuby sippy cup that comes with a top similar to a bottle nipple and a top similar to a sippy cup. We love them! Got them at Publix. 2w
  •   wedeane19 Thank you!!! I am still giving my 16month old a bottle in the AM/PM and have been looking for a good sippy cup to transition to as I don't think his straw sippy's will do the trick! He loves his warm milk, too Will give these a shot-thank you so much! 2w
  •   sefw3 She and that bear are the epitome of cuteness. 2w
