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 One: 2.5 years

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 […]

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 […]

You know how you spend weeks making a costume for your two-year old and then they don’t want to wear it?  Me neither.  Mostly because I didn’t make the costume, The Scottish did, hehe.  But I did drag the costume to music class only for him to tell me, “No thank you, no thank you” over and over again. I get it.  It’s a bit awkward and scary to wear a box but seriously he LOVES it.  He pushes it around the house and talks about how it’s HIS train. What am I talking about?  The Wee One’s 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 […]

The Wee Two: Four Months

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 […]

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

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 […]

Not This Again…

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

couch and blanket couch and blanket

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 […]
