Catching Up With Carmendy {21 Months Old}

Catching Up With Carmendy {21 Months Old}

In just a few short months, little Carmendy will be two years old! Every day she looks less and less like a baby to me. But I love her more and more. She’s just so darn cute, especially since I know what’s to come (age 2 and 3) and she feels so easy to care… Continue Reading

When Your Child Won’t Shut Up

When Your Child Won’t Shut Up

You know that talkative person that you don’t want to sit next to on the plane, get stuck in an elevator with, or answer their phone calls? The person that talks so much you can’t even fit a word in edgewise to escape the one-sided conversation? The person that three minutes with is too much verbal onslaught?… Continue Reading

As Good As It Gets

As Good As It Gets

This is as good as it’s gonna get. Boogers, whining, uneaten dinners, tantrums, wiping butts, early mornings. The constant rushing to and fro, the grocery shopping, the piles of laundry, the never-ending to-do list, the house that never seems to be clean, the meal planning and preparing 3+ times a day. Carrying children, unloading groceries,… Continue Reading

Owen’s Quarterly Update {3 and 3/4}

Owen’s Quarterly Update {3 and 3/4}

My little guy Owen has been busy these past three months acting like a typical three-year-old (i.e. crazy spoiled tyrant). It’s hard to fathom that in three more months he’ll be a four-year-old. Even though he drives me bonkers on a daily basis (and by daily I mean every minute of every hour of every… Continue Reading

Catching Up With Carmendy {20 Months Old}

Another month has gone by! Carmendy’s second birthday is quickly approaching. You guys, I love one-year-olds. It’s the best age, these months before they can speak at an annoying rate and say “MOOOMMMMYYYY” about a million times in an hour. But yet they can understand and interact with you. I feel like everything Carmendy does… Continue Reading

Catching Up With Carmendy {19 Months Old}

Time for a Carmendy update! Only five more and then she’ll be two. My little lady has been her usual self this past month. She enjoys being on the move (seriously, this girl could spend an hour running around our kitchen table). She really is a funny bunny; I can’t put my finger on it… Continue Reading

3 Months Later: Stillborn, Still Loved

3 Months Later: Stillborn, Still Loved

Three months have passed since our baby girl was stillborn. You may be wondering what life has been like for us since we received the devastating news in November. I’m often asked “How are you doing?” and my standard response is “We’re okay. I’m hanging in there.” This is true – I am hanging in… Continue Reading

Catching Up With Carmendy {18 Months Old}

Happy Half Birthday, Carmendy! This era of chronicling her life each month is quickly coming to an end. Six more months until she turns two. Wow. I need to start planning another birthday party (yep, I start this far in advance because I am not normal). Carmendy continues to be a funny little munchkin. Her… Continue Reading
