He’s growing so fast! 20lbs and 5 months later, this is what Colton is looking like. He’s pretty handsome, if I do say so myself. I’m jealous of his eyelashes and his laid back personality. And his lips. Love those. He’s such a chill dude … until he wants something and then it’s game on. […]
This sounds like a made up virus; but it’s real. Oh, so real. We’ve got hand, foot and mouth over here (again) – this time it’s Colton who has the virus. This virus is a real pain because a) there is nothing you can do about it b) it hurts him. bad. c) he can’t […]
The second child always gets hand me downs. They are just born this way. Even when those hand me downs are pink and your second child is a boy. Sorry, kid. But you wear it well!
Here is Colton at nearly 14 weeks old, enjoying some fresh spring air, when Logan (our chocolate lab) scooted his ball next to his pink Bumbo chair. Logan thinks Colton can pick it up and throw it to him. One day, Logan … one day.
The reason I thought Colton was coming on Sunday was because I had a C-section scheduled for November 18th. I had it scheduled because baby boy was breech and measuring over 8lbs.

She is going to hate me for this. But this is too funny to pass up. We got Kelsey’s school photos and in every photo she looks like this! This is not just a pout. This takes some serious practice.

You do (and sacrifice) whatever is necessary to be by their side. And, until they are better, you truly never leave it. This is the time of year when Kelsey catches […]
As I approach month 8 – I’m getting more and more freaked out about having a boy. The energy, the mess, the noise! I’m not sure I can handle it. I kind of love my calm, cool and collected girl. We paint nails together, watch movies, go shopping and sometimes just chill out on the […]
That’s the name of the paint color we chose this morning for our son’s nursery. It was a sad day taking down all of the princess things Kelsey had in there, but I’m really excited for this new chapter and lots of blue to follow suit. The room is really starting to feel like his […]
This blog post has gotten so many views recently! Guess we all know what topic is popular (worldwide) this time of year. Thanks for the flashback everyone, I forgot out this one.
I think this is what parenting in the Digital Age will require. Remember when our parents threatened us with, ”You can’t go anywhere unless your room is clean”. Well … times, they are a changing, and I’m afraid to say I’ll probably have notes like this around my house sooner than later.
