Today, as we were acting out Beauty and the Beast, one of Sophia’s favorite pastimes, I was cast as Papa and she was Belle. She asked me — Papa — about my invention and I told her I would be taking it tomorrow to the fair. She replied, “Yes, you will go to the forest […]
Happy 3 month birthday, little guy!
This week you turned 3 months old and I am still truly amazed by it all. You’d think a “seasoned” mom like myself wouldn’t find as much wonder in this stuff the second time around, but that is so not the case. I think I’m even more aware of these […]
There is just so much cute going on these days. Every morning, Sophia wants to snuggle with her baby brother. And, of course, Ian doesn’t mind at all seeing as Sophia is his favorite person in the whole world. Really. Even though I’ve got this massively sore back from all the weird leaning and funky […]
I admit that I have whined a little here and there about Sophia’s princess obsession. She’s supposed to be above Disney’s attempts to teach her how a prince galloping onto the scene will ensure her “happily ever after” ending, right?

Ian is […]
Working on the nursery today. Cleaning house. Doing some laundry. But there is ALWAYS time for a break to make some homemade cookies. Sophia was very up for the idea and jumped right in with her awesome “helping” skills. I mean, who else is going to help me clean up the extra chocolate chips and […]
I’m getting really close to the end. I had one final ultrasound yesterday (to make it a whopping six total! What’s up with that?) and, no surprise from the 9 pound bundle I brought home last time, this little one is measuring not-so-little. He’s likely to show up at anytime — that’s what my body’s […]
