Surprised daddy at work with some coffee because the littlest monkey on the right kept us up most of the night. We were all glad to explore daddy’s office and meet some of his coworkers. #smilethroughthetired #thetwobrothersallen

Can’t take my eyes off this goober. He will find his way to the top of anything when you turn your back. In all the ways his big brother was cautious, this sweet one is certainly not. But oh, we love him so! #sawyerlukeallen #nofear

We picked up some new library books today. He wanted me to leave him in his car seat to keep reading them. When I came back out to check on him, my heart skipped a beat because he wasn’t in the car seat. After a mild panic and a bunch of “beck-ettt!!?” – I opened the trunk to find him casually consuming the latest find. I’m glad he loves books but boy oh boy #beckettjamesallen

And suddenly he is such a big boy too! Our Sawyer-bean starts his second year in the sweet infant room at Montessori and will transition to toddler in just a few months. He loves school like his brother, enjoys his friends (by giving them hugs and kisses), climbs as high as his teachers will allow him, and especially enjoys eating the spines off of all the classroom books (because he already ate the ones at home). He is delightfully silly and sweet as honey, but he will wear you out! Love you #sawyerlukeallen

This big boy’s first day of school, 2nd year in Primary at Montessori. He loves school, is excited to see his friends, says he wants to be a fireman, and is looking forward to learning to “read more words”. He is an absolute delight to this mama’s heart and we are all looking forward to a great year in Room 3. #beckettjamesallen

Probably one of my favorite days ever! Drove up to Hendersonville to experience 2 min 34 seconds of goose bump inducing totality that went way too fast. Gasps and cheers and the sound of crickets surrounded us as the sky went dark as nighttime. The corona of the sun was brilliant and fiery, illuminating the mountainous moon in its wake. My mind was wild with where to look and how to fully experience the sensations. No doubt, we will all remember these moments and this day together! #beckettjamesallen
