about us.

hi! we’re jord, sara, L and Q. welcome to our family roost, where we chronicle life as it happens {and as we remember to blog it!}.

a little about us…

jord and sara have been married for almost seven years.

we are overjoyed to share our lives with our five-year-old son, Lionel, and our two-and-a-half-year-old son, Quincy.

while we often write about our children and what it’s like being their parents {in short – a blessing, even in the midst of sticky-jelly-coated hands, when-will-we-ever-sleep-again nights and stubborn “I do it” refusals of our help}, we also moved into our first home in the summer of 2013. so, as we work to make our house our own, we use this space to track sara’s many changes of mind and jord’s endless desire for a space that’s all his own.

our days are full of trying to channel L’s precocious energy – he loves any and all cars + trucks, counting, asking questions, dressing up in various costumes – typically superheroes, football and hockey players, or firefighters! – , and watching the “hi-pad.” we’re also embarrassingly fascinated with watching our youngest, Q, blossom in his language use, ask to spell words, and adorably follow his “brudder” around everywhere.

new here? welcome! to catch you up, here are a few of our favorite posts:

* a mother’s thoughts in the morning.

* what it’s like to be the mother of two littles.

* watching our boys become brothers.

* what happens when your toddler starts calling you “Mom” instead of “Mama.”

* conversations with a two-year-old = always enlightening.

* a poem – “mama’s owies”
