Heart Splat Ball Valentines

Heart Splat Ball Valentines

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}

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.

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

Winter White Citrus Mint Sangria

Winter White Citrus Mint Sangria

I can’t believe it’s nearly 2017! Time to mix up this delicious citrus mint sangria to ring in the New Year. Mostly my drink preparation is limited to unscrewing a bottle of wine and pouring it into a glass (and usually I just tell my husband to do this for me). So this is my first… Continue Reading

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

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.
