Twelve Month Update – 8.31.14

Twelve Month Update – 8.31.14

Or in other words, a year. I’m in total shock and a bit of disbelief that my baby is a year old. Though I think this might be a bit more painful if she were my first. It was really difficult with Elle turning a year, but still. My sweet Evie. I know this next year will just blow by so quickly. So…the last monthly update for little Evie. Sleep – Evie sleeps about 8-8 […]

A Day in the Life as a Stay at Home Mom

A Day in the Life as a Stay at Home Mom

I’ve done a few “A Day in the Life” rounds on Instagram over the years but it always felt a bit self-indulgent to record an entire day and then blog it. The more I thought about it, though, I realized that this is the perfect place to record a day in my life as one day I’ll be able to look back and see how our days were (as will my girls). Below is a […]

Ready, Not Ready

Ready, Not Ready

  Yesterday was a pretty big day. For the morning, Evie tested out the waters in the daycare she’ll be attending part-time in the fall. I’ve been a ball of anxiety over how the three hours would go and if she would even let me leave her. While I’m very ready to have a bit of a break from being a stay at home parent, I can’t believe that this day has come. I’m ready, not ready. I’ve been […]

Ten Month Update – 6.30.2014

Ten Month Update – 6.30.2014

Ten! Holy cow how did that happen? Sleep – Yay! Things have really smoothed out in the sleep department and naps have become much more reliable. Except, you know, those two weeks of last month when we were out of town and naps happened as they happened. Otherwise Evie goes down nearly every morning for 10 and sleeps for an hour and a half and then goes down again between 2:30 and 3:00 for another […]

Nine Month Update – 5.31.2014

Nine Month Update – 5.31.2014

  Guys! I did that second-time mom thing. I skipped the eight month update. I had every intention of writing it down and I even took the picture (10 days late) but gahhhhhh. Sleep – Nighttime sleep is pretty constant–Evie goes down when Elle goes down, so around 8, and she usually falls asleep nursing. Normally she sleeps all the way through but sometimes she’ll wake between 5 and 6. Generally she goes right back down […]

Elle Right Now – Three Years

Elle Right Now – Three Years

  Three years. Oh my goodness Oh my goodness Oh my goodness. And while I want to say that the time has flown past, it really hasn’t. I mean that in a good way; life before Elle feels like a million years ago and I can no longer imagine our lives before her. I suspect they were much quieter–probably a little boring. Life with Elle is anything but dull. She has always been my firecracker […]

Books for One Day – Sunday Salon 84

Books for One Day – Sunday Salon 84

Bedtime with Elle has always been my favorite time with her. She’s way too busy during the day to stop and want cuddles or to read books with me, but at bedtime I have her full attention. We read books, we sing songs, and I get all of the snuggles I want without any of the protests. Ok, she still protests a bit. I love these moments with her–sometimes they’re quiet and loving–sometimes they’re loud […]

My Mothering Mantra

My Mothering Mantra

Today is Mother’s Day, a holiday that people have been celebrating since 1908. Growing up my sisters and I (and eventually my brother) always tried to make Mother’s Day a special day for my mom. She never asked for a lot and I’m sure she received more coupon books than she ever wanted…though I’ve yet to figure out why she never cashed in any of those fun coupons. I can’t wait for the day! I’ve […]

Seven Month Update [3.31.2014]

Seven Month Update [3.31.2014]

Hmmm. Going to have to try the picture again with some help from Scott…but this pretty much sums up the month! Feel free to just skip on down to the pictures. ;) Sleep – I’m starting to wonder. Was Evie ever really a good napper? Or do I just remember a handful of times when she napped well and forgot the rest? The past month has been really tough and if you’ve wondered why I […]

Six Month Update – 2.28.14

Six Month Update – 2.28.14

Ooooh boy was it hard to get a picture this month! First Evie was much more interested in tackling the paper than looking in my direction. Then when I called on Scott for help I couldn’t keep her from rolling toward him. Finally a toddler meltdown in the other room kept Evie still enough to snap the above shot. Just like her sister, Evie does not like sitting still for too long! Sleep – Something […]
