What We’re Up To: April 2016

Baby X: 14 months He’s a crazy walker now!  What a beautiful, fun few weeks with him!  His two first molars on the bottom came through and we recovered from a family-wide stomach bug, so night time has gotten easier as well (only two wake-ups…).  As I expected, he started walking when I wasn’t really paying attention. … Continue reading

What We’re Up To: March 2016

Baby X: 13 months yesterday. Standing all the time but not yet walking, eating well, loving daddy and rolling balls, playing often independently. KLC: 3 1/4 years today Active and independent; first riser in the house; still napping, dressing herself, and thriving with routine. Fixated on rocket ships and getting married. We have visitors in … Continue reading

Baby X: 12 Months

Baby X: 12 Months

  Whew.  One year of posts!  I didn’t let you down, little second child.  (or, I didn’t fail my own likely skewed expectations of how to honor a second child?) The last post is only a week late.  You can’t fault me for being somewhat in denial that my baby isn’t really a baby, right? … Continue reading

Baby X: 11 Months

Baby X: 11 Months

I’ve entered complete denial mode over having an almost-1 year old.  He doesn’t seem too happy about it either.  (Literally the only on-his-back picture I could get this month.) My photography assistant wasn’t that great at keeping her brother happy and lying on his back, but she was sure cute and sweet! At eleven months, … Continue reading

Baby X: 10 Months

Baby X: 10 Months

We’re a couple days late because X’s 10 month birthday fell one day before his big sister’s 3rd birthday!  We threw her a fun party with a few friends and neighbors.  We were busy all weekend with preparations and celebrations, and X had a good time to boot.  At one point, he crawled over to … Continue reading

Letter to KLC on her Third Birthday

The past three years, I’ve written letters to KLC on her birthday eve, including the night before she was born.  Read them here (includes birth and 1 YO) and here (2 YO).  The following was started in the wee hours of her birthday yesterday and finished just now, one day later.   Also: I cannot get the following letter … Continue reading

Baby X: 9 Months

Baby X: 9 Months

You spent nine months growing inside of me, and you’ve been with us on the outside for nine months, Baby X! Thanks to our friend E for helping get a nice picture of X this month!  Please pardon my shoe/leg interference. I was on the ground to help keep the little man happy for the picture. … Continue reading

Baby X: 8 Months

Baby X: 8 Months

Two posts in one day!  (If you subscribe to my posts via email, you probably didn’t see the extra picture I added of KLC earlier that shows the comparison of her hair at 2 years old to her hair a few months later.  If that interests you, click over to the last post to see it.) Month … Continue reading

KLC: 2.38 years

KLC: 2.38 years

{Where did the time go?? I wrote this post back in April, and it’s too good to let it live in the “drafts” folder forever. She’s already changed a ton more in the six months since this was written, but here it is in all its unfinished glory.} I haven’t dedicated a post to sweet … Continue reading

Happy 4th Anniversary to T and K!

Happy 4th Anniversary to T and K!

Last night on the way home from a magical boat outing, John Mayer’s  “Dreaming With A Broken Heart” came on the radio. When you’re dreaming with a broken heart The waking up is the hardest part You roll outta bed and down on your knees And for a moment you can hardly breathe Wondering, “Was … Continue reading
