Winnie {Six Months Old}

Winnie {Six Months Old}

Last week was Winnie’s half birthday. SIX MONTHS OLD. It’s hard to believe half a year went by so quickly. My Winnie bear is getting so big. Like, literally. I think she had a hundred growth spurts this month. And she’s a strong girl, pushing and shoving with her legs. Milestones are hard to predict,… Continue Reading

Winnie {Five Months Old}

Winnie {Five Months Old}

Once again, I’m really late with Winnie’s update. She’ll be six months old in less than two weeks. But, hey, at least I’m writing about her being five months old while she’s still five months old. My tardiness this month is Owen’s fault. He brought some horrible Ebola-like virus into our household, which basically ruined… Continue Reading

Dinner With Children: Cruel and Unusual Punishment

Dinner With Children: Cruel and Unusual Punishment

Let’s talk about my least favorite part of parenting: DINNERTIME If your household is like mine, the third meal of the day (following 32 snacks) is an absolute shit show. It doesn’t matter how far in advance I prep dinner. Somehow, just scooping food from a crockpot onto a plate becomes a harrowing ordeal with… Continue Reading

Winnie {Four Months Old}

Winnie {Four Months Old}

Poor third child. Once again, I’m late posting her monthly update. However, it’s not all my fault. If Winnie slept a little better (or at all), I think I’d be right on time with her blog postings. I feel like I say this constantly and I know I sound like a broken record, yet I… Continue Reading

Winter Baptism Celebration for Winnie

Winter Baptism Celebration for Winnie

Just about a month ago, our little Winnie was baptized. Following her christening at our church, we hosted a winter baptism celebration at our home. It was a beautiful day, made extra special with the presence of our dear family and friends. I kept the decorations and the menu simple for Winnie’s baptism day (there’s… Continue Reading

Winnie {Three Months Old}

Winnie {Three Months Old}

Hey, it’s me, the mom that forgot to write her baby’s two month post. So here I am writing her three month post, because by the time I remembered to write her monthly update, she was already more than 3 months old. Oops. But I would like to point out that I DID remember to… Continue Reading

Catching Up With Carmendy {2 and 1/2}

Catching Up With Carmendy {2 and 1/2}

It’s officially happened. Carmendy has become the victim of second child syndrome. First, it took over two years for a photo of her to be displayed in our home. And now this – I have missed one of her blog updates. I wrote about Owen quarterly during the past two years. My plan was to… Continue Reading

Let’s Get This New Year Started

Let’s Get This New Year Started

Goodbye 2016! It was a year with many happy memories, the year we welcomed our precious Winnie. It was also a rough year, filled with grief, anxiety, and lots of overwhelming about-to-lose-my-shit parenting moments. But we made it. I suspect 2017 will be just as challenging (if not more so). But again we’ll make it through… Continue Reading

Winnie {One Month Old}

Winnie {One Month Old}

My littlest little is one month old. How the heck did that happen already? The past few weeks have gone by so fast. Knowing this is my last experience with a newborn, I’ve been trying to soak in the snuggles and tiny baby coos as we get to know our new bundle. I find it… Continue Reading

Meet Baby Winnie

Meet Baby Winnie

Last week our little rainbow baby finally arrived after nine long months of anticipation — and she’s a girl! We’re so excited to introduce you to the newest member of our family, Winnie Theodora Kopp. Winnie’s birth story isn’t quite as dramatic as her big sister’s. This time we made it to the hospital (much… Continue Reading
