April 2016

CORBAN Corban joined his first t-ball league this spring. Just over an hour once or twice a week. We’ve enjoyed spending time together as a family cheering him on! (And picking flowers, running around, etc.) He’s our little athletic one, that boy. Uncle Jon came for a visit on his way home from college. Liddi […]

March 2016

I do so hate when my babies are sick, but they just never seem to be as still (and precious).  Liddi’s started walking right at 13 months (par for the course around here) and was ready to start scootering the next week. Our weekly book one week was The Gingerbread Man, so naturally we had to […]

Liddi Turns 1

Liddi Turns 1

“I don’t know what that is, but I do know that I WANT IT!” “What’s all this singing about, and why’s everyone looking at me?” “Guess I’ll just have to do the touch test first.” “Thanks, but I don’t need anything to confine my piece of deliciousness here.” “Mmm…let it roll around the tastebuds…” “Gah! I LOVE […]

February 2016

James took Jaeda (or did Jaeda take James) to a Daddy-Daughter Dance. She’d been planning on it for OVER a year. Pearl necklace and all. Our Liddi Bitty turned one. And is all just a blur of movement. I’m lucky to have any pics of her! (Corban is constantly touching, hugging, kissing his baby sister. He […]

The Baby Giant

The Baby Giant

This girl has been in 12 month clothing for a couple months! I was not prepared, but thankfully, the grandmas were:) She smiles all day. Especially when we let her eat by herself. Unsupervised, she prefers to eat crayon. Oy. She DOWNED this pear and loved every minute of it! Once in her life, she […]

The Bittiest Liddi

The Bittiest Liddi

Chewing everything. (That onesie’s now in the too-small bag.) Studying everything. Drooling everywhere. Too cool to smile. Learning to sit up. (She’s a pro now.) Cheeks rounding out. (Just like Jaeda’s.) Fast asleep. (We came in the door, and I laid her on the carpet while I brought the groceries, etc in. [Because you know if […]

Jaeda’s Pain

Jaeda’s Pain

There once was a little girl named Jaeda who loved to swing from grown-up arms. One day, she jumped too hard and got a bad owie. Of course, they were visiting family in Michigan. Her mom and grammie took her to urgent care. They were too nervous with Jaeda’s owie. So they went to the […]

The Bumbo and the Playmat: A Girl’s Best Friends

The Bumbo and the Playmat: A Girl’s Best Friends

This little girl with the round face (that’s only getting rounder) is a nursing and sleeping champ. She’s not, however, a very good awake champ. It’s been over a week of general waketime fussiness. I’m thinking a growth spurt? So much eating. So much sleeping. (So much fussing.) But in her happy awake moments (which […]

Our very own Bitty Baby.

Liddi is exploring her facial control, playing with her tongue, and experimenting with her vocal cords. We do response cooing and plenty of staring at each other. In fact, more than I realized! The other day, I was reading a blog on my phone while she was nursing. When I felt her stop sucking, I […]

Things That Go

Things That Go

After riding a two-wheeler with training wheels most of last summer, we had Corban try a balance bike. It took him a while to push his feet against the ground versus pedals. But he became quite adept at it and was lifting his feet up, gliding, for longer and longer periods. So. Two weeks ago, with […]
