I haven’t done a Tuesday Things post in quite awhile. But I can currently only think in list form, so I figured it was appropriate for today. 1. Birthday party planning is underway! There will be polka dots and cupcakes and family and friends from Alabama, North Carolina, Virginia, and Massachusetts. 2. In addition to […]

1. Last week we bought a new push toy for Sam, and it only took about three days for him to figure out how to use it. Check him out cruising around the house! And wiggling his little baby butt. The boy loves to dance. 2. Speaking of dancing, we had a family dance party […]

1. Last weekend I visited with a group of girls that I haven’t seen since college. That’s almost eight years. See, I joined a sorority during my sophomore year, but by my senior year, I had distanced myself from the group. I could blame a dysfunctional relationship or a reluctance to conform. But I live […]

1. What did Sammy find in his Easter basket on Sunday morning? Books, bubbles, and a few stuffed toys. 2. And for Mommy and Daddy? Chocolate peanut butter eggs, of course. Our favorite local candy shop serves the confections year round, but they’re bigger and better during Easter season. We polished off both boxes — […]

Another Tuesday, another list. And, most likely, lots of photos of the little guy. We might as well start with one, right? 1. Sam had his six-month check-up yesterday. He weighed 15 pounds 10 ounces (10th percentile) and measured almost 26 inches long (25th percentile). Still our little Peanut! 2. Sam’s size has nothing to […]

1. Each day Sam looks less like a baby and more like a little boy. He feels a bit heavier every time I lift him out of his crib. His reach is longer and his grasp is stronger. And, if it’s even possible, his eyes are brighter and his smile is wider. 2. Speaking of […]

1. Nick and I jumped on the Downton Abbey bandwagon, and we don’t plan on getting off anytime soon. We’re so hooked, in fact, that when we discovered that season 2 was no longer available to stream online (as of March 7th), we paid $2.99 for each of the four remaining episodes in our queue. […]

1. My sister spent a few days with us last week during her spring break. We snuggled with Sam and shopped at Hobby Lobby and watched Revenge. And one night, after baby boy went to bed, we baked chocolate chip cookie bars and played Bananagrams. (Recipe to come.) 2. Temperatures are still hovering in the […]
