I have stared at this screen for longer than I care to admit, debating whether I wanted to put this out to the world or not. For one, telling people makes it real, which is scary. For two, it means people will form an opinion, and even at 33 years old, for me, that is […]

I can’t believe this is my last monthly post! She: Is a total cheese puff, clearly. Got her first haircut! Just a tiny bit off her bangs to get them out of her face, and her little sideway rat tail is now gone! Spent the majority of this month sick, as did the both of […]

I’m super late on this one. Just pretend this is being posted on December 6th, okay? Thanks :) She: Is getting impossible to photograph laying down. This was the best I could do, and it’s the one reason I’m glad I only have one more to take! Loves to Dance! As soon as any song […]

She: Is getting harder to photograph! She thinks it’s hilarious to roll around when I’m trying to get her to smile at the camera. Does this super adorable thing where she looks at you real surprised and goes “Ooooo!” about pretty much everything. Took her first trip to the Pumpkin Farm! And we got her a […]

She: Started crawling this month! She had been moving around for a while, but she finally figured out the right motion. Then almost immediately, she started pulling herself up on the couch and ottomans! Celebrated grandparents day with Grandma and Pap, checking out the Trucks and Heavy Equipment Day in Oakmont! Pap was in his glory, […]

Dear Althea

Dear Althea, Today was scary. In an effort to occupy you for a couple minutes, I handed you a cracker, thinking you would gnaw it into a soggy mess. You were strapped into your chair in the kitchen, sitting right next to me, except for the ~5 seconds I walked into the dining room to get […]

She: Went on her first (of many) beach vacations! We spent a week at Topsail Island, NC, and had a blast! She liked the sand, but hated the waves. Her favorite part was having her Dino Pool right out on the beach with the rest of us! Visited the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital, which […]

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past six months, it’s that having a child creates this constant struggle between the thoughts of “I can’t wait until she…” and “I hope she stays little forever.” Most of the time, those internal battles include things like I can’t wait until she can sit up unassisted, but I hope […]
