Wyatt | April 2017

Dear Wyatt, You are almost 2 months old now, and I haven’t even done a post for you yet!  But oh, how I am enjoying you.  🙂 Your Birth Daddy and I went to the hospital on Thursday, 3/2 to be induced.  Since your heart rate kept dipping, and since you were possibly going to be … [Read more…]

Wyatt | February 2017

2/27/17: Dear son, Daddy and I are both anxiously awaiting your arrival, and cannot wait to meet you.  The doctors think you’ll be big, and I agree (you feel much bigger to me than your sister did!).  You seem to be taking your sweet time in there, though.  I thought you’d make your appearance a … [Read more…]

Lily | 2017

1/7/17: Daddy got you out of the car and said “Man, you’re big!”.  You said “I not a man!” 1/17/17: You’ve been adding “n” to double-syllable words lately.  For example, “triangle” is “tine-gohn” and “circle” is “circohn” 2/7/17: “Amelins” = “Animals” “Uh-felint” = “Elephant” 2/21/17: We were talking about mango, and you said “Just like … [Read more…]

Lily | 2016

Lily, You are beautiful!  We enjoy you so much.  Every day is a new adventure with you, and you are learning a ton.   1/20/16: You can say “more” (“maw”).  There were a few days that I would sing “Just a spoonful of sugar…” and then I’d stop, and you’d say “maw”.  I’d say “More … [Read more…]

Lily | 13th Month (Nov-Dec)

Dear Lily, You are adored. Everyday, we marvel at what a sweet, good girl you are. You are such a good listener! You’ve learned that some things are off limits (like Duke’s water dish and his kibble), and even though you’d really like to play with them, you understand when we say “no no”, and … [Read more…]

Lily | 11th Month (Sep-Oct)

9/19 – Hannah’s birthday party! You loved the bouncy house: 9/20 – “Thank you”/Passing game: We went to Islands to escape the heat, and you started passing Daddy’s credit card back and forth to us, handing it over to me, then to Daddy.  Every time we’d accept it from you, we’d say “Thank you!” and … [Read more…]

Lily | 12th Month (Oct-Nov)

Lily Dawn, Today, you turn 1!  I’m truly amazed, not just at how quickly the year has flown, but at how much has happened in it.  Not only have you learned soooo much, but you’ve taught us a lot as well, and have transformed us into parents.  Thank you. <3 Over the last month, you’ve learned to … [Read more…]

Lily | 10th Month (Aug-Sep)

Lily Bug!  We can’t believe you’re 10 months old!  Where has the time gone?  You’ve gotten incredibly mobile lately.  And, while you’re very cautious about what you do, you still end up bonking your head quite a bit.  We can always tell wherever you’ve hurt yourself, because it turns red soon after (but fades somewhat … [Read more…]

Lily | 9th Month (Jul-Aug)

Milestones and firsts: 8/1: Your first crepe 🙂 You loved it! 8/3: You waved back at us! 8/5: You give (or “accept”) kisses! You let us kiss your tongue with your mouth wide open.
