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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Heeeey Everybody!  I missed you guys.  And I missed blogging.  Although taking a break is always beneficial to me because I come back itching to share my stories and thoughts.  The Scottish had last week off from work and it’s been amazing!  I loving extra family time and it’s so stinkin’ cute to see how much The Wee One loves playing with and hanging on to his Daddy. My back has felt really good lately and I know that’s because I’ve carried The Wee One A LOT less recently.  Alas, it’s Read more […]

Hello lovely readers.  I will be taking a blogging break for the rest of the holiday season but I wanted to share one last post before that happens! I swear the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas felt like it flew by this year, partly because Thanksgiving was pretty late, partly because the weather has been decently warm for December and we haven’t had much snow, and partly because life is just plain busy! We always have grand plans to make the most of the holiday season and this time Read more […]

Blogging About My Bubble

I’ve been feeling extra emotional these days.  Pregnancy hormones are mostly to blame, but let’s be honest, I cry at the drop of a hat even when I’m not pregnant.  There are so many thoughts zipping through my head at all times, so much to do in preparation for baby #2, and yet, so much joy and gratefulness in the everyday little things.  Life is good, and we’re really trying to make the most of this blessed time of year. However shiny my little bubble is, there is turmoil, death, sorrow, Read more […]

We had such a nice four-day holiday weekend that going back to regularly scheduled life programming has been a little tough for me. A Monday that started off normally was made worse by an epic toddler tantrum post-nap.  The Wee One’s meltdowns are completely typical behavior for his age but it’s still frustrating.  It must be so difficult for him to want something but be unable to communicate what that is, and now that we’ve taught him “please” and “thank you” in sign language I’m pretty sure Read more […]

Thankful

Hello lovely readers and Happy Thanksgiving to those folks in the USA!   Guys, I’ve become such a holiday junkie in my (relatively) “old” age.  I love it more and more each year!  I can’t get enough of holiday music and I usually start baking cookies as soon as Halloween is over.  I love family get togethers, holiday parties, and browsing the holiday section in every store I go into to.  The cold weather seems appropriate now and joy is in the air. Speaking of joy, I’m so happy Read more […]

Our Nerdy Halloween

The Wee One sported two different looks this year for two reasons, 1) it’s fun and 2) he needed a costume to wear to his party with his fellow toddler friends because his other one didn’t make sense without The Cuz Man. First up, introducing Dr. Wee One. I was able to snap a few photos of him before he headed into post-op to meet with a patient.  He’s a very busy man you know. The Wee One loved wearing his stethoscope, which we all thought he would get annoyed with but no, he he wore Read more […]
