Ford’s Birthday Party


(sidenote – I’ve been a really crappy blogger – I hate blogging this late after the event – I forget most of the details and have to think of something clever to say…) We celebrated with family and close friends and had so much fun. It was great to have everyone come over to the house and check out our new place (even though it was (and still is) so bare!). We BBQ’d hot dogs & brats, had baked beans, {Read More}

Ford – 12 months


How in the world did we get here? How is he already 1? I still can’t believe it. It has been an amazing year with this beautiful little guy of ours. It’s been a crazy journey with lots of love, laughter and a few tears. Diz and I are so in love with this little guy of ours. (I can see why people have more than one child – which we will… EVENTUALLY.) It’s been so fun to watch him {Read More}

Happy Birthday Ford!


Here’s a little slideshow I put together on SmileBox for Ford’s party today – I figured I should share it here since I can’t invite everyone over to my house. Hopefully I’ll get a post up later this week for Ford’s 1st birthday party!  

10 month photoshoot


I’m a little late in posting this – but with the move and all – I’ve been extremely behind in posting blogs. YIKES. This photo shoot was supposed to be for 9 months – but Kristina was busy having a baby so we moved it out a bit, and it ended up being a 10 month photo shoot.   Ford was a bit of a stinker for this session. He just wasn’t super smiley like he usually is. I was {Read More}

Ford 11 months


How is our kiddo almost ONE?? I’m in shock that our little man is only weeks away from turning ONE. I will never understand how time can go so slow, yet speed by like it has these last 11 months. Love this kid more and more each day. Weight: 25lb 10 oz Height:  30.25″ Dr. Appt: took Ford in this month for a silly rash on his leg. It ended up being Eczema (which is what I thought it was…) {Read More}

Ford – 10 months


So… I had a draft of this post on my phone (or so I thought) and I somehow lost it. So this is going to be a very abridged version of Ford’s 10 month. Total Mom/Blog Fail. Weight: 25lbs 4oz Height: approx 30″ Doctor Appt: Well – we had yet another ear infection, this time it was bad! He had a perforation and had lots of drainage from both ears! Poor kid. We went to the after hours clinic on {Read More}

Ford – 9 months


This little stinker is MOBILE now! WATCH OUT! He’s a crawling machine. And he is loving it. I don’t know why we were encouraging him to move, because WOW, life has changed! I can no longer plop him in the middle of the floor with toys and get ready in the morning. He’s not content to just sit there, he is ALL OVER the place – exploring and checking out everything. I’ve been desperate a few times and sat him {Read More}

5 Things That Surprised Me as a New Momma


Just a few things I’ve realized over the last few months as a new Mom – besides the obvious parts, like loving the little chubby bubbie to death. I don’t think I’ll ever feel like I know what I’m doing 100% of the time – but I do feel like I have it figured out most of the time. and look – memes and somee cards. 1. Internet Friends (or “pretend” friends as my Mom and I also call them) {Read More}

Ford – 8 months


This kid has given us a run for our money this month. Bronchiolitis, recurrent ear infections, and now we are battling thrush. My poor kiddo. Otherwise, he’s been great. Even through all the sickness, he’s been a champ. No sleepless nights, no fits, he’s just been his normal happy little self. And he’s getting so dang big, I know I say that every month, but he really is. He’s SO long! Most of his clothes are too short on him! {Read More}

Ford – 7 months


How on earth is Ford already 7 months? This can’t be. Please tell time to slow down! It looks like he’s saying – “Guys, LOOK! I’m 7months old! S-E-V-E-N!” He’s such a cute little bunny! I swear his hair is starting to go red. Then I look again and it’s blonde. Maybe he’ll end up strawberry blonde. Either way, he’s adorable. He’s such a snuggler – which this Momma loves. Developing more rolls (so yummy!) Weight: No official weigh in {Read More}
