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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Wee Two: Two Months

The Wee Two turned two months old on May 3rd.  To be honest, it’s been a lot of the same newborn stuff with the added pleasure of more smiles and alertness.  The Wee Two is focusing more on faces and objects which has been really fun.  I can’t wait to see more of his personality shine through! We’ve started giving The Wee Two a bottle regularly but by regularly I mean mostly on the weekends because it’s difficult managing The Scottish feeding him while I pump, The Wee One running around, Read more […]

The Wee Two: One Month

Soooo, The Wee Two is actually two months old (already? yes!) but obviously I have to post his one month update first!  Let’s rewind to April 3rd. Like I mentioned, the first month with two kiddos was tough.  Just as The Wee One was getting more fun and independent we HAD to throw a newborn into the mix.  🙂  The lack of sleep and busy days made The Wee Two’s first month a bit of a blur but we got into a rhythm and now we can’t imagine our lives any other way than with our two boys. The Read more […]

I’m so in love with these photos from Annie at Annie Wiegers Photography.  Not only has Annie taken The Wee One and now The Wee Two’s newborn photos, but she also did The Wee One’s first birthday shoot and The Glue and The Tape’s wedding.  By now, having her come to our house to take our picture is like having an old friend stop by to say hi.  We catch up on life while she snaps photos quietly with her camera.  It’s the perfect, relaxed setting for a mama who has just given Read more […]
