Emilia – 4 Months

Tomorrow is Milly’s HALF BIRTHDAY, and I’m still a couple months behind on these… so let’s get to it! Things changed a lot between three and four months. My maternity leave ended, sob. I went from being home with my baby all the time to being home with her part time. I’m in the office three days… [Read More]

Emilia – 3 Months

Hmm.  I have a lot of catching up to do around here… Sorry for the lack of posts lately! I’m basically saying this to myself, because I really wanted to be good about blogging now that I have a baby. I really value these posts for the sake of nostalgia, and LOVE looking back at them! So,… [Read More]

Friday Favorites

Well hey there! I’ve been a little MIA lately. (#lifewithanewborn) January has been flying by – last weekend we had a great time in Chelan celebrating my 28th! The weekend included chocolate cake, mimosas + hot-tubbing with a view, and participating in the annual Winterfest wine walk. Plus, our master bath at our rental had… [Read More]

Happy NYE!

The baby slept from about 11pm to 6am. (Wahoo!) I’m pretty tired and should probably go back to sleep, but instead I’m laying here in bed sipping a delicious cup of piping hot coffee and thinking of the new year. I was pregnant for most of 2017, so this will be our first full year… [Read More]

Christmas Cards – 2017

I’ve always felt that I would finally have my life together if I ever sent out Christmas cards. You really have to plan ahead to get them finished and sent out in a timely manner. Having a baby this year really gave me the extra motivation to get them done. It’s safe to say that… [Read More]

Emilia – 2 Months

I blinked this month and Emilia turned two months old!! Which means I have less than a month of time off with my girl. (Sob.) I wish I could just hang out with her all day everyday. She’s started smiling at us on purpose now which is pretty much the best thing ever. She is so sweet,… [Read More]

Christmas 2017

We look forward to Christmas so much, and then it’s over in the blink of an eye. From about Thursday to Monday (Christmas day) we had lots of friends and family to see and a few Christmas gatherings to attend, while I tried to watch lots of Christmas movies, bake, and cram all the festiveness… [Read More]

A Very Milly Christmas

Having the holidays off for maternity leave is pretty fabulous. Right now I’ve got a sweet sleeping babe right next to me, a delicious cup of coffee in a Christmas mug, and Friends on TV. (I really should put on a Christmas movie… oh well!) Since this is Milly’s first Christmas, I’ve made it my… [Read More]

Newborn Stocking Stuffers

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care. I always loved opening up my stocking first thing on Christmas morning. My mom is an excellent stocking stuffer, and now it’s my turn! I’m not sure what I’ll put in Emilia’s stocking, but I’m envisioning hair bows, baby lotion, cute socks, and a warm winter hat. Here… [Read More]

Emilia’s Newborn Christmas List

I’m not sure if most people Christmas shop for their newborns or not, but I can’t help it. Milly is so much fun to shop for, and I’ve already figured out most of what I want to get her. In order to keep myself from going overboard, I want to follow the “something they want,… [Read More]
