Mildred Jane @ 22 Months

We’re getting closer and closer to 2 years every day, and Milli is starting to show it, even if she isn’t getting much bigger. I weighed her last night as we’re still not quite 22lbs. There is seriously a 6-month-old baby at the sitter who is as big as her. But that’s OK. Mil packs…

A Happy Holiday

Our home was very busy this holiday season with several Christmas events to attend and lots of new things to do. We managed to make it to 4 different family Christmas parties, our friend Dave’s Crazy Christmas Show on the radio, and Christmas Eve Mass this year, which I think is pretty impressive with a…

Mildred Jane at 16 Months

Mildred is another month older.  It’s hard to believe how fast these months go.  We’re past all the major milestones, like crawling and walking, but Mil is still finding lots of things to try and explore. Fair was last week, so she got to go out and spend some time with her dad in the…

Maternity Leave

It’s almost June, which means that my maternity leave is quickly coming to a end.  I’m not sure how I feel about that yet.  I am looking forward to getting back to a more regular schedule, and being able to talk to adults about things that aren’t my tiny human.    During my leave, I…

I Need a Nap

Somehow Mildred manages to sleep all the time, but I still don’t manage to get a nap, or any sleep at all, unless someone else is here to watch her.   It’s like she knows that I have laid down and she doesn’t like it. Fortunately, there are lots of people who want to hang out…

Exciting News

I’m excited to announce that I’m going to be an aunt!  My sister (and her husband) are having a baby.  And I got to take the announcement photos.  Since they posted them on Facebook yesterday, I think it’s safe for me to share them now. We had a lot of fun doing this quick little…
