Potty Training Now, Because …

potty training

Reid turned three recently and for awhile now, I’ve thought he has been ready to make the transition from diapers to handsome little boy unders. But, he hasn’t really asked. And, on my end, I haven’t really felt much worry about pressing it.  All over the internet you’ll find articles about the best time to […]

Merry Christmas + a Happy New Year

Here’s a belated peek at our Christmas card and photos we had taken in September! But, more important perhaps is that the photographer who took our photos has an amazing giveaway going on. It lasts into January so if you’re local, pop over and enter!  Oh, Reid. Always so happy and laughing … until you […]

Well, happy 13 months, little buddy, Mama is only a few weeks behind on documenting your first birthday! Oops! Good news is, I didn’t forget to take photos of you in honor of your 1st birthday so at least these were timed accurately :) You are the cutest, squishiest, happiest, big little one year old!

Eli — 8 Months

ACS_0343

This is Eli. A gentle, roly, happy little bubs who bops along with his family and thinks life is grand 95% of the time.  That remaining 5%? It has all been thanks to teeth. The same week that big sister Jem lost her two top teeth, Eli got his two bottom teeth. Back to back, […]

Oh hey there sweet Eli! Yesterday you turned four months old … four whole months! Mama can hardly believe it. And I’ll say it again next month, because every day is long, but every milestone comes so fast. You have found your place in our family oh so perfectly and we can’t imagine our days without […]

  My Reid, my little love.  For 18 months now you’ve been such a light in our family. A constant smile. A joyful laugh. A funny bundle. Seeing your personality come alive is our favorite thing. You dance and sing, love Mickey Mouse, and would spend all day, every day outside if you could.  And […]

Happy Golden Birthday, Reid!

Reid will always be the happiest way to begin a new year.  Being due in late December I thought for sure I’d have a Christmastime baby. But no, Reid had other plans and laid his mark on a different holiday – New Year’s Day! And that means this year, his first birthday, is his golden […]

Reid — 10 Months

img_8199

Disclaimer – although I have managed to miss most of Reid’s milestones in the blog world, I’ve kept up with his physical baby book! Kind of a feat considering that Reid is my third and I’m homeschooling this year and prepping for a move and busier than ever with work. But I really don’t want to forget. […]

Bring On the Milestones, Baby!

img_7995

Reid is such a good baby. The kind that gives you baby fever much too early. He’s easy going and happy go lucky. Always smiling and quite the little crawler … and one-handed balancing stander as of late! He’s a good little sleeper, comparatively to his big siblings at least, and this boy can gobble down a […]

Happy Birthday to Me + a Lily Jade Giveaway!

Rosie in Brandy

I’M THIRTY!!! The big 3-0! Today was a normal, hum-drum day. That’s what happens when you’re a mama and your birthday falls on a weekday :) The kids and I ate maple glazed old fashioned donuts as a treat for breakfast and Jem and I shared one of the new Pumpkin Spice bottled Frappuccino. When […]

Happy Birthday, Jemma!

My little love! You’re six today. Six!!! I swear it was just yesterday that we brought you home from the hospital. You were a darling girl then and you’re a darling girl now. You are the biggest helper and the most gentle soul. An avid reader. An amazing big sister. A true encourager and a […]
