Ares turned four months old today! Last year after Labor Day weekend, I found out I was pregnant. It’s just wild that one year later, Ares is actually here with his chubby cheeks and thighs, gurgling, smiling, and generally loving life (unless he’s tired or hungry, of course.) Ares has also recently made the discovery… Continue reading Ares at 4 Months
We just sent Cece off to her first day of first grade, light-up sneakers and all! I feel like school just let out for the summer about two minutes ago, but here we are having just returned from the bus stop! I did not have a chance to get weepy and emotional since the two… Continue reading First Day of First Grade!
“My biggest dream come true is my daughter; I’ve wanted her since I was a little girl.” (^^^Shoe credit goes to Grandma Pat!^^^) On my to-do list this summer was to take updated photos of the girls that I could frame, give to grandparents, etc. I finally got around to it this morning! I also… Continue reading Six and Three
Today, our tiny overlord is modeling some darn cute baby apparel from my sister’s Etsy shop! I’ve been delighted at how well these onesies have held up. (And it’s been fun getting compliments on these unique and witty pieces!) The laundry runs nonstop in our house (thanks, Ares) but we’ve been able to wash, wear, and enjoy these… Continue reading Best baby onesies ever! (And a giveaway!) CLOSED
The midpoint of summer has arrived and although I feel like we’ve done so much, I know there’s still more to squeeze in! Above is a photo of Rosie borrowing her friend’s motorcycle and riding into summer like the coolest cat you’ve ever seen. Here is everything that’s gone on so far and the photographic proof… Continue reading Halfway through summer!
Happy 4th of July weekend! We spent last Friday and Saturday up at my in-laws cabin. This was our first visit up there since last summer and we squeezed a whole lot into our 24 hour visit. Even though the weather was on the chilly side for July, none of the kids or their cousins hesitated about… Continue reading Return to the cabin!
Yowza! Yesterday I got to watch my beastly husband run the MN Spartan Sprint down in Welch Village. My sib-in-laws were total rock stars and watched our kids for us while I accompanied Joe to his race in the morning. We met up with them later and Cece and her cousin Michaela even ran the kid race together! I… Continue reading MN Spartan Sprint ’17
Ares turned one-month old this week! It’s been a whole lot of eat, sleep, grow, repeat. He loves being held but doesn’t love being naked or his carseat (or shopping ) very much. He’s filling out and getting longer and I’m pretty sure I shouldn’t cram him into NB size clothes or diapers after this week… Continue reading Ares at One Month
“And if this world runs out of lovers, we’ll still have each other.” We got married seven years ago today! Somehow, it seems like just yesterday and also forever ago at the same time. I’m still in love with our wedding photos. We were such babies (without any babies of our own yet!). In honor… Continue reading Seven Years!
Last weekend we cleaned up ourselves and our house (kind of) and had some family and newborn photos taken! Since Ares arrived, I only had one photo of him, Joe, and myself (which was of me on the operating table) and none of all five of us. This time, I am extremely aware of how quickly… Continue reading Family and Newborn Photos
