Finnegan is one today and I don’t know where the year went. Is that how it goes with the second? Or is that just life now? Well, whatever the reason, we are all so much better for knowing him. Finnkol, little bug, baby brother. Our little fellow is flirtatious and ever so busy. He smiles … Continue reading And just like that, Finn turns one!
I dropped the peanut off for her first morning of nursery school on Monday. She was genuinely excited to go and enthusiastically ran into the room at 9:15am sharp when they opened the gate to greet her. I asked one of the teachers what to do and she suggested making a quick getaway while she … Continue reading First day of nursery school.
Those first four days really had me questioning our timing. It was hard to see how all those minute, incremental successes were going to come together. I was actually quite ready to chalk it up to a failed experiment. Well thank goodness we stuck it out because it really paid off! On Saturday, we had the most … Continue reading Potty training: final thoughts.

She was especially tickled at the part where Prudence bends over to show the hole where the poop comes out. Class gal, that one! We brought her potty out while we … Continue reading The potty

I could stomp around and cry and shake my fist, but I know firsthand how helpful tantrums are. So we bought a … Continue reading Cold feet.
My little one is nearly 22-months-old, if you can believe it. It is insane to think she is a breath away from two. I’ve barely written about her development of late (ok, I've barely written--more on that later) because it no longer feels like something I can sum up in a post. Maybe it never … Continue reading Peanut’s crazy fast development update
She is getting more and more mileage with her walker this past week, pushing the thing up and down the hall. Just this morning she pulled herself up to standing and then let go and stood without support for a good 30 seconds. That was a first! I guess her Daddy’s forbidden keys were an … Continue reading Peanut’s crazy fast development update
Everyone tells you how fast it all slips by and you say yes yes sure of course, but it really really does ok? The past few weeks L has gone from babbling with our dog in a singsongy voice to saying her name (“Hey Ruby” or oo-bee), the word doggy, Gaga (her grandma’s nickname) and … Continue reading Peanut’s crazy fast development update
