Lucy at 10 months

Dear Lucy, Your first birthday, my dear, is officially around the corner.  This baffles me.  Sure, the first few months of your life crawled by, but now you are crawling by, and it is not going slowly at all.  As you gobbled pad see ew off the table the other night at our favorite Thai […]

Five (mostly BIG) Things for September

Five (mostly BIG) Things for September

Aaaaand…boom.  That is me, once again, failing to blog when real things are happening.  Each of these items deserves its own blog entry, and I hate combing through lovely pictures to find just one or two (or three…or four…) of each thing.  But!  We will never get caught up if I don’t, and they will […]

Jason was recently talking to someone who works at an organization that is now ten years old, and they said to him, “We’re not a start-up anymore.”  I liked that.  This marriage, too, is no longer a start-up but a real, true, decade-old one.  That’s nice to say, because it feels like it’s been ten years…mostly in […]

Westward Ho!

Westward Ho!

It has been six weeks since our trip west, but summer is not over yet, so write about it I will! Our trip was a tad…intense, I guess.  It involved a lot of hauling around two tiny kids and all the junk that goes with them.  Good.  So fun.  Love it.  But oh, we were […]

Lucy at Seven Months

Dear Lucy, If six months was a milestone, seven months is a blur on the way to your first birthday.  All of the sudden I find myself thinking about what kind of big girl car seat to get you or how you need 18 month-sized pajamas for the winter or how much I will miss […]

Lucy at Six Months

Dear Lucy, It has been half a year.  The other day your chubby legs and splashy arms filled up the baby bathtub in the sink.  I was soaked and laughing when I pulled your giggly self out to dry off, and I remembered giving newborn you baths in the sink with snow piling up outside […]

Justin and April came to meet Lucy and hang out with Henry and basically be good company for all of us.  Such a fun weekend (for us–April ended up sick, which kind of ruined it for her!).  We love being with them are are SO excited that they are getting married in September!  Yay!   […]

Lucy at One Month

Lucy at One Month

Dear Lucy, You’ve been part of our family for only a month, but I really can’t remember what life was like before you…though that is probably partially the result of sleep deprivation!  The weeks since you were born have been full of adjustment, recovery, and the very newness of you, but as we start your […]
