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

DSC5373_1.jpg

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

IMG_0399

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

IMG_0224.jpg

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

IMG_0102-edited.jpg

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

Cool-Mom.jpg

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

IMG_0014.jpg

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

7-month-comparison_thumb.jpg

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}

He looked SO grown up! this darling bow tie & suspender set are from my friend, Jenny’s, Etsy Shop – DesignerGirls – Check it out! Seriously?! How cute is my boy? Ahhh! I just love him!

Ford 6 months

IMG_0113.jpg

How is my little man already 6 months?! Time is just flying by. I swear I’ll be posting about his first birthday before I know it. Ford is such a sweet little guy. He is really starting to interact with us more and it’s just SO much fun to see him growing and learning new things. (but, at the same time, I wish time would slow down!) (side note: I started writing this a few days before Ford turned 6 {Read More}
