See You Later

Hey guys!  It's been a while hasn't it??  :) I figured I should probably check in on my small slice of the internet and make sure it's doing OK.  Looks a bit dusty around here and sounds pretty quiet but all is well! Here's hoping all is well with you guys too! Unfortunately, this isn't going to be a rejuvenating post filled with ambitious plans to start back up with more frequent blogging. The time has come, and it finally feels right to close this chapter of my life, at least Read more [...]

The Wee Two Celebrates One Year!!

2

Pic heavy post for your viewing pleasure in 3,2,1... The theme was rockets!  The Mother made these adorable fruit kebabs in the shape of rockets and The Sister planned a bunch of awesome games for the kids to play.  We tried to keep the party low-key, inviting mostly family and a few friends, and The Wee Two (and his big brother) had a wonderful time. The Wee Two got to have his second attempt at a smash cake (his first time took place during Read more [...]

The One Thing I Don’t Want to Give Up

2

Hi everybody!  Wow, it's been a while, huh??  Obvious blogger statement coming up in 3, 2, 1... life has been a lot busier recently so I thought it was time for an update. First off, my baby just turned ONE year old on March 3rd!  We celebrated The Wee Two's birthday by going to the Minnesota zoo as a family and then having a party the following day which also happened to be The Scottish's birthday.  Needless to say. the entire week before was super hectic and crazy but everything went so Read more [...]

The Wee Two: Eleven Months

0

This guy is SO CLOSE to walking but he's just not there yet, which is fine by me I might add.  He can stand unsupported for 5+ seconds and he can walk while holding on to things.  It won't be long now.  The Wee Two is still as busy and adorable as ever and it's crazy to me that he is almost a whole year old!  This has been one fast, happy, and sleepless(!) year. The Wee Two is starting to sign a bit more but it's definitely been going slower than with The Wee One probably because we sign Read more [...]

The Wee One: 2.5 years

4

My oldest just passed the 2 and a half year mark at the end of January so I thought it was time for an update on him!  Truly, having a toddler has been so much fun!  We love being able to communicate with him on a daily basis and understand more of what he is thinking.  While The Wee One has his meltdown moments, most of the time he is just a curious sponge, soaking up as much of life as he can  Our little guy is kind, clever, rambunctious, loving, silly, and a bit shy.  He's an amazing big Read more [...]

A Look at Brothers

1

I know, I know, comparing is terrible!  But this is more for me so I can remember all the little ways that my boys were unique and all the ways that they were similar during their first year. Here is a list style post and a closer look at the similarities and differences between The Wee One and The Wee Two. (Newborn photos by Annie Wiegers Photography.) Differences Wee One nursed all day and slept well at night, Wee Two nursed less frequently but all day and all night. Wee One Read more [...]

The Wee Two: Ten Months

2

The Wee Two is ten months old as of Jan. 3rd and you know what that means, it's time to start planning his first birthday party!  Yay!  In bittersweet news, my baby is looking less and less like a baby every day and more like a big boy toddler, especially with his new haircut.  SO handsome! The Wee Two is starting to stand for longer periods of time and hold on to things while taking a step or two.  He can crawl up and down the three stairs into our great room which is awesome, and he so Read more [...]

It’s OK to Feel Uncomfortable

1

It's OK to feel uncomfortable.  Your feelings might get hurt.  You might regret how you voted.  You might feel like your vote didn't matter.  You might feel like you didn't do enough.  And that's OK.  This past election has been eye-opening for me.  I went through so many stages and feelings and to be honest, I'm still processing everything that happened.  I've experienced anger, sadness, guilt, bewilderment, and sorrow.  As a writer, it's cathartic for me to write things out, so if you Read more [...]

Hi Everyone, I’m Still Here and Have Lots to Say!

5

I'm going to be real with you guys.  I miss this space.  I miss the freedom to write about whatever, over-share on details, and post a billion pictures of my boys.  It feels weird to let Drama Happens get so quiet but it's been the right choice for me.  I've been blogging at Hellobee pretty regularly which has been really fun, rewarding, and sometimes challenging but in a positive way.  I'm also struggling to find the energy to write more than an update or two a month because I'm so tired and Read more [...]

The Wee Two: Nine Months

0

My adorable Wee Two, you are the cuddliest, squishiest, silliest little guy and we love seeing more of your personality emerge day after day.  That said, could you please, pretty please, sleep more at night??  (Sigh.)  We're in a huge sleep regression right now and while we're hopefully near the end of it, The Wee Two's ability to sleep through the night has gone away this past month.  This means more sleep training unfortunately.  It all makes sense due to the major cognitive and physical Read more [...]
