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 […]

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 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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

The Wee Two: Eight Months

The Wee Two is eight months old???  WHAT?!?!  He is growing up way too fast.  Life definitely goes by quicker with a baby when it’s your second time around but it’s especially fast when your baby starts off at 9 lbs and soars through all sizes and milestones. The Wee Two had a great month!  He discovered how much he loves yogurt and puffs, but we’re still working on not gagging on oatmeal.  He has figured out how to make sound while blowing raspberries and is starting to babble while playing 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 […]

The Wee Two: Seven Months

It’s official!  The Wee Two (seven months old on Oct. 3rd) is sleeping through the night (for the most part) and he is night-weaned!  This is a huge accomplishment after six months of waking every couple of hours and The Scottish and I have been enjoying sleep for over a month now (since we started the same night of his six month well check-up).  He does wake up once in a while around 3 or 4 AM but overall sleep training has completely changed our night times.  I recently wrote a post for Hellobee Read more […]

The Wee Two: Six Months

Happy half year Wee Two!!  I can’t believe my baby is six months old!!  Where to begin? This past August was a bit of a roller coaster.  Our trip to Chicago was awesome but The Wee Two did not sleep well at all.  Travel was quickly followed illness and teething.  The Wee One had one tiny, itty bitty cold by six months, and The poor Wee Two has already had three.  Second child problems! We tried oatmeal this month and it was not very successful.  The Wee Two didn’t seem to enjoy it and Read more […]
