dear hunter {year 4}

I remember the evening you were born. After a tiring 24 hours of labor, the most beautiful boy was laid on my chest. The instant love for you was strong and just keeps getting stronger. Yesterday on your 4th birthday, I held you close and […]

how to feed your toothless baby real food

how to feed your toothless baby real food

At 16 months I don’t really think of Zoe as a baby anymore.  She’s walking, talking, independent and already sharing her opinion (loudly) whenever she gets the chance.  She is so full of personality!  The only area that’s still baby-like is her mouth.  The girl […]

on your third birthday {Hunter}

At 3…. You love being outside, picking up rocks, sticks, flowers, dirt and whatever else you can get your hands on. I love that I get to see your adventurous side and that you choose nature over TV any day. You love your sister and […]

Hunter’s construction themed 3rd birthday party

On Saturday we celebrated Hunter’s 3rd birthday with a construction themed party.  It was a blast!  The kids had so much fun and Hunter was in heaven pretty much from the minute we arrived, which was a couple hours before the party even started.  Here’s […]

Hunter just turned 2 years old in May and I had been going back and forth about the transition from crib to bed. At first I wanted him to be set and staying well in his bed before Zoe and him began sharing a room […]

Hunter: 21 months

I debated on doing a combined 21/22 month update for Hunter since he’s just 2 days away from being 22 months… but I’m sure there will be all new things and pictures to share in the next couple weeks, so just 21 months is it! […]

day in the life: alone with two kids

Yesterday it was just me and the kiddos. It had been a glorious 2.5 weeks having Jacob home, but sadly he had to go back to work. Both Jacob and Hunter were sick over the weekend, so going into Monday I wasn’t sure how it […]

then there were four

Thank you all for your warm congrats on Zoe’s arrival! We’ve been home since Thursday afternoon and are settling in nicely. Hunter had an initial ‘meet baby sister’ at the hospital that had a few more tears than I anticipated. At home though, things have […]
