Your cousins first big Memorial Day trip was a full one, little bear. You loved (almost) every second, from the airport to waving goodbye. We did the grocery store together, showed off our favorite pizza place and ice cream shop and picnicked in the park. We had lunch with Daddy, went to the tea shop... Continue Reading →



On a typical morning, Everly gets up at 7am, we hang out upstairs for an hour or so, then head downstairs for breakfast at 8am before Tuck leaves just before 830. Breakfast is usually a flurry of packing lunches, making eggs, cutting fruit, and doing dishes. Tuck takes Everly to get his shoes and outside... Continue Reading →


Girl took her first serious tumble yesterday. Not an off the bed or couch fall, or a lost her balance fall, but the slow motion, couldn't stop it, trike-falling down stairs, face first into concrete fall. She worked herself up to being sick which meant we took a trip to a mountain ER. Girl had... Continue Reading →

daddy’s birthday

Everly, Your daddy is the best. He has been blowing in your face since you were born, showing off your core strength for months, and doing lots of baths and bed times solo. I hope you always love your daddy. He's silly and adventurous, and he loves you so very much. He makes you eggs... Continue Reading →

mothers day 2.0

Last Mother's Day was a fog. I can't remember at all what we did or if we did anything besides feed her and nap. Maybe we took a walk? I could literally look this up in pictures, but out of principal, I'm not. This one was spent slowly - waking up slowly, getting ready slowly,... Continue Reading →

twelve (alternately titled: one)

Rainy Girl, I love your two tiny (somewhat lonely) teeth. I love your long hair and putting it in pigtails or brushing it after your bath. I love your tiny features, your round cheeks, and your sweet face. I love your (very occasional) laugh and your easy smile. I love when you kick your feet... Continue Reading →


We're two days away from the girl's first birthday (so get ready for the sap-fest). At work, we're almost literally doing the same things as last year - end of year push for seniors, food drive preparation, gearing up for summer - and it all seems surreal. Last year, one of my co-workers said that... Continue Reading →


Everly, It's been a big month. You celebrated your first Easter, finally fit in 9 month clothes, and know way more than we give you credit for. We started asking if you want to "go upstairs" before bed and you happily pass by all distractions and beeline for the stairs. You know Carl, Kenneth, Maurice,... Continue Reading →


I love Sunday. For as many Sundays as we can, we don't make plans. So if it's beautiful, we can walk to our favorite coffee shop or ice cream place. If it's cold, we can people watch at the grocery store or brave the chaos of the mall on the weekend. This weekend feels like... Continue Reading →
