The Wee One: Two Years Old

2

This cutie turned two on July 22nd and he's got the attitude to prove it.  Hehe. The Wee One is at such a fun age because he's talking so much more and we can actually have real conversations.  I can understand almost everything he says and he is great at repeating new words although he sounds a bit like Joey from friends when Phoebe is trying to teach him French. His interpretation of our last name is ridiculous and his version of coffee is wildly inappropriate.  You'll just have Read more [...]

The Wee Two: Five Months

0

How am I so behind on The Wee Two's monthly updates??  Oh right, summer, life, and two kids. My baby turned 5 months old on August 3rd and the next day we left town on his first road trip to Chicago.  The Wee Two is growing crazy fast and even though he is still sleeping in 3 hour chunks, The Scottish and I have been doing a lot better with the lack of sleep in our lives.  Unfortunately, you might say we've gotten used to it. An update on the Zantac, it worked for the first couple of days Read more [...]

Call Me Mrs. Cookie!

4

Hi everybody! Popping in to share some happy news, I was recently accepted to be a contributing blogger for the parenting website, Hellobee! The sweets generation just came out and I was pumped to get my first choice of Mrs.Cookie!  Is there anything tastier than a classic chocolate chip cookie?? Some of my content will be similar to posts on DH but most of it will be brand new.  I'm very excited to be joining another group of talented bloggers and if you're a fellow parent and have not Read more [...]

These Are The Years…

0

These are the years... of going to bed at 8:30 PM because we're so crazy exhausted. of rarely being alone together. of nothing in the house for lunch but sandwich bread heels and old fruit. Just enough to keep everyone fed. of wearing the same stained shirts and ripped jeans because any extra money goes to clothing for the boys. of calling each other Mommy and Daddy. of eating out less.  Oh, how we miss eating out. of watching Netflix together instead of talking or connecting Read more [...]

The Wee Two: Four Months

6

My baby turned 4 months old on July 3rd!  Full disclosure, it's been rough over here.  I thought The Wee Two's sleep was bad before, haha, guess what?  It can always get worse. My sweet boy's night wakings are out of control.  The Scottish and I have passed sleep deprivation and rounded the corner into sleep torture.  Immediately after The Wee Two hit 3 months old he began waking up a ton at night. I don't mean every few hours, I mean every 30-40 minutes some nights.  He'd often wake up Read more [...]

Scottish Grandparents Visit MN 2016

0

I know, I know, this update is super late but better late than never.  We had a fantastic time while The Scottish's parents were in town, and we got to show them more of what the Twin Cities has to offer.  I love Minneapolis and St. Paul and each time they visit I get more ideas of places to visit and things to do.  We are already excited for next May!  :) This post is going to be extremely photo-heavy and perhaps not super interesting to most of you readers.  But for our family it's a Read more [...]

The Wee Two: Three Months

4

This was a big month for The Wee Two. We had Papa and Gran Scottish visiting from Glasgow for three weeks so not only were we extra busy but this little guy did a ton of developing too. I absolutely LOVE when a baby's personality starts to peek through.  I'd describe the first look of his personality as laid-back, curious, and sweet.  The Wee Two began giggling and laughing this month and it's pretty much the best thing ever.  I don't think I caught his first chuckle like I did with The Read more [...]

Sweet Iced Lattes

Hi friends, how is everyone doing?  We had a wonderful time with The Scottish's parents the past few weeks and I will share more when I do a photo-filled blog post of their visit. I also need to write The Wee Two's three month update.  Can you believe it's already the middle of June!?! But first I have some musings to sort through. Being a parent is hard. OK, duh, right?  A lot of it is frustrating or terrible (up at night with a baby, toddler tantrums) but most of it is sheer bliss.  And Read more [...]

Not This Again…

6

Yes, this again.  THIS meaning another post about me falling off the blogosphere for a while.  Hey, it happens! I promise I have a good excuse.  My in-laws are coming from Scotland for three whole weeks!  It's very exciting but it means I'm going to be even busier.  I'm so pumped they get to meet The Wee Two for the first time and see The Wee One again now that he's walking and talking.  The last time they saw him he was 10 months old and newly crawling. Despite how badly we want to Read more [...]

It’s Not About the Pillows

0

Every day The Wee One pulls the couch pillows and blanket down to the floor.  And every day I put them back on the couch.  This happens roughly 100 times per day.  OK, so it doesn't happen that often but I will put the couch pillows back, turn around, and The Wee One will be wrestling them to the ground yet again. The little rascal in action, he also likes to throw my burp clothes on the ground.  Grr.   I have to put them back up for two reasons, 1) because I use a pillow Read more [...]
