October (and actually November, too!) is a busy month of birthdays in my family. My mom's is the 13th, my dad's is the 25th, and Rudy's is the 27th! We sang to Rudy on his birthday after dinner, and Morgan was having a field day. I think this was the first time she kind-of understood.… Continue reading October Birthday Celebrations & Halloween

Stats & Health In September, Morgan caught Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease (and, subsequently,… Continue reading Morgan’s 18-19 Month Updates
I've said it once-- no, I've said it a thousand times-- but it is truly blowing my mind that my baby girl is ONE! My once 7 lb. 6.6 oz. teeny tiny baby is now a sassy, walking, talking, toddler. I swear, she grows bigger every night in her sleep, and she's without a doubt,… Continue reading Morgan’s 12 Month Updates
OLD DOG, NEW (BABY) TRICKS On March 1st, Morgan learned a new trick. She can now walk in the kitchen, open the cabinet, and grab Rudy's bag of Pupperoni treats. She gives it to Justin or I to open and give her one, then she gives it to Rudy. It is literally the cutest thing… Continue reading Wrapping Up March 2021

Morgan is up to a whopping 14 lbs. 6 oz., and she's starting to put a little meat on her bones as we try and expand her baby food palette. She is VERY determined to crawl, and wiggles all over the place - making it nearly impossible to get still photos! She is fiercely independent,… Continue reading 7 Month Photoshoot
Today I'm (finally!) sharing the 6 Month Photos we took of Morgan, from 9/21/20. I know I might be biased, but dang is she cute!! Just look how proud she is to be sitting unassisted, and standing up tall with Daddy's help. Ugh, she melts my Mama heart. Enjoy!
Hello and strap in! I drank a double dose of Spark this morning, and I have ALL. THE. ENERGY. Welcome to #MomLife, where you need 240mg of caffeine to function productively. No, seriously. We are breaking Morgan of her beloved swaddle, so I haven't had a "normal" night's sleep in like two weeks. We put… Continue reading September 2020 Recap & 6 Month Milestones
