I'm going to say it every single month, but how on earth are we already here???? I can't even fathom how your first year is halfway over. I'm going to be a disaster when you turn one ....more

weekend wrap-up

Do people still do these??I was looking back at old posts from when E was a baby and getting major Mama guilt at how little I've documented things for Cooper and am now determined to change that. We shall see I guess... Life is just so much busier now ....more

this time around.

I knew deep down that the possibility of my second child being just like my first was pretty much non-existent. Other than the obvious he was a boy and she was a girl, I knew that there would more than likely be personality differences. My pregnancies couldn't have been more different and I figured that was the beginning of what would surely be plenty of big differences in my children.I could talk for days about how their sleep is different, or that he always wants to be held while she never did ....more

Oh my boy, slow it down please.I still think of you as my teeny tiny newborn but you're not. You are five months old and I'm dumbfounded at how we got here so fast.We had a doctor appointment the other day and you are right around 16 1/2 pounds and about 24 3/4 inches long. You are staying right around the 50th percentile for everything ....more

Oh sweet boy, you are four months old and I cannot even wrap my head around it. I'm not blinking anymore because I swear every time I do, you grow up more. Not okay.It's kind of been a rough month for you ....more

my boy.

We found out Cooper was a boy at an early ultrasound right around 16 weeks.Life was crazy and honestly, I kept forgetting I was even pregnant so I thought if I knew what the baby was, it might help me bond. So I begged B and then eventually just booked it thinking he would have to go if I had a set appointment.I kind of wanted a girl.No, I really wanted a girl.In my head danced visions of girls in matching clothes. Of sisters sharing a room and telling secrets into the night ....more

full circle.

November is an extremely hard month around here.While it's the beginning of the holiday season and pretty much the beginning of my favorite time of year, it's also the month that we suffered the most heart ache in.It's the month that three of our pregnancies left us. The one where we found out about the other one that left us at Christmas. It's a hard, hard month.When I found out Cooper was due in November, my heart sank ....more

Oh Coop a loop these months are flying by.You are just such a joy to us sweet boy. We are far more tired than we ever imagined we would be but you are beyond worth it. You are just the best little guy.You are currently in 3-6 and some 6 month clothes ....more
