Baby Cal Turns Two… Months!

Already two months old! And I LOOOOOOVE these smiles!!! They make waking up in the night worth it. Okay, no. They don’t. I lied. Yes, they’re very cute… but I would prefer sleep right about now. “Posing for these pics makes me want to hurl.” “Hiya!” “Peek-a-boo!” “What, not cute!?” “Two months… no big whoop.” […]

Times With Two-This Mama’s Advice and Thoughts On Life With Two Kiddos

When I was pregnant with Calvin, I was constantly picking the brains of friends who had more than one child. “What was life like day-to-day? What was the hardest part of having more than one? What do you do when both children need your attention?” were a few questions I would ask. I have a […]

Well. The Hubbs and I just finished watching the season premier of The Bachelorette. This is my favorite show to watch with him and I look forward to it every Monday. Or in our case now, probably every Tuesday as it’s just on too dang late for us now. And I think it’s going to […]

The First Time Away From Cal

I did it. I finally got out of the house and left Calvin for the first time in 6 weeks. And let me tell you…. It felt…… gooooooooood. I cried the first time I left Gwyneth. That was just after three weeks, and The Hubby made me leave the house with him and go on […]

A Day Full of Birthday Fun!

What a fun day we all had for Gwyneth’s 2nd birthday. While her party is a little over a week away, we spent the day making it all about that sweet little girl. We started with a homemade waffle breakfast made by Daddy… And his little helper bug. He has his waffle recipe DOWN and […]

Happy 2nd Birthday, Sweet Gwyneth!

Our baby girl is two. TWO! Looking back at her journey through life, I choke down a lump in the back of my throat as the tears well in my eyes. Every time. It almost kindof hurts. Granted I have just had a (nother) baby and am still extremely emotional, but my goodness, these tears […]
