From Instagram: Oh, you know, just hanging out on the side of 95… Last weekend I headed to North Carolina with our 8-year-old and the baby to help my parents unpack their new home. About an hour away from their town, the rear differential went out in the van (basically, the back wheels stopped turning while […]

From Instagram: “We’re trying chiropractic care to see if we can help Jackson’s digestive issues. If nothing else, he loved the experience, which was fairly miraculous considering his aversion to strangers.” Despite discontinuing solid foods and transitioning to all formula (to eliminate any variable in my diet, since we know he needs formula anyway for […]

From Instagram: I finally said yes to Harry Potter. I finally read Harry Potter last year, and I instantly fell in love with the characters, the stories and the magic of it all (you know, like the millions of people before me who didn’t wait 13 years to pick up the first book!). Since that […]

From Instagram: First soccer practice of the season! {You know those families that have perfectly styled hair and adorable outfits wherever they go? Yeah, we’re not them.} It’s been several years since our oldest played Upward soccer and none of our other girls have played a team sport yet, so this year — despite the […]

From Instagram: My schedule is so screwy because our summer has been so crazy! It goes like this: We do something fun during the day. Then I stay up late working. But I still get up early because I LOVE my morning hours. And then midmorning I am just DONE for the day…which means I’ll […]

From Instagram: 17lbs 6ozs! I’d say we’re back on the growth curve – woohoo! ❤️ Five weeks after he stopped gaining weight altogether, little man has put on almost a pound-and-a-half, and I’ve never smiled so big as I did while double- and triple- checking his weight on our brand new digital scale. The last […]

From Instagram: One benefit of no power for 48 hours is my fridge and freezer are now sparkling clean! {Tip from my sister-in-law: river rocks make great ice packs because they get super cold and don’t sweat!} The best laid plans, right? I made a list for the week with some projects I wanted to […]

Well, that’s one way to help hold your bottle… As Hurricane Arthur slammed the Outer Banks with rain, wind and storm surges, it ushered in a break from the oppressive heat here in the Eastern panhandle of West Virginia with gorgeous temperatures yesterday and today, perfect for catching fireflies as we waited for the fireworks […]

Sooooooooo close! If he could just figure out how to move his knees, Jackson would be crawling, and I have a feeling there won’t be any stopping him once he figures it out. This little guy is busy, busy, busy even as a non-mobile baby, but we’re all still really anxious for him to master […]

Can you believe this little guy is almost 8 months old?! That’s two-thirds of a year! In addition to standing while he plays, he’s got mad butt-scooting skillz (although he hasn’t quite figured out how to crawl properly). He’s also started “talking” constantly, and we’ve even gotten some “mamamamama”s. We’re enjoying our time in Florida, […]
