Jon is one month old! As per blog tradition, I’m back to sharing monthly updates! When Amelia was born, I knew I wanted to keep track of her baby milestones so I started writing letters in a journal each month of her first year (and now I update it every six months), and I also… Continue reading One Month with Jon
Happy Friday! This week was quite momentous: Jon Leo joined the world! He arrived on July 9th, weighing in at 8 lb 10 oz and measuring 18 inches long. We are so delighted that he is here and healthy! Every Friday I share five highlights from the week, big or small, and today is no… Continue reading High Five for Jon!
Preparing for a new baby is a different ballgame the second time around… you can’t just drop everything and rush to the hospital when there’s a toddler involved!I Luckily my parents will be able to travel here to stay with Amelia, so I’ve been working on lists of contact info, meal ideas, schedules for school… Continue reading A Day in the Life: July 2019
Today marks ten years of marriage! Whew, these days of raising a toddler together (while I’m 8 months pregnant and Sam starting a new job, I might add) may seem long… but the years seem to be getting shorter and shorter. Ten years ago we didn’t know quite what we were in for when we… Continue reading Ten Years!

Life is finally settling back into routine again, and I’m finding time for hobbies once more; even though blogging is one of the first… Continue reading Cheers to 2019!
Amelia started going to a 2 day/week 9AM-2PM preschool program in August, and it’s been a great experience so far! It took a few weeks for both of us to adjust; she had never spent such long amounts of time with adults (and kids) other than family, and I hardly knew what to do with… Continue reading Mother’s Day Out Adventures
When I was little, my Dad made a wooden kitchen and I remember playing with it for many, many hours. It had little knobs to turn, doors to open and shut, shelves to pull out, and a little railing to display seasonings and a tea set. Even after I grew out of it, my parents… Continue reading Kitchen Play Dreams
