Conversation with My Mom

Mom: I saw the blog update and I really liked Zoe’s paintings. You know, I think she has real talent. Me: Mom, she’s two. Mom: I know, and I think she has a lot of skill. She’s so creative, you can just tell. Me: But she can’t even draw a circle yet. Mom: But she […]

She did it!! Ellie slept through the whole night last night. And not that faux six hour chunk sleeping through the night that the pediatrician praised her for doing last month. Nope. That doesn’t count. 8:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Now that is what I’m talking about. And that meant that I got to sleep […]

We discussed it here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. Now that Zoe’s a toddler and talking, and being hilarious we have unintentionally omitted sharing […]

Baby Blues

I love “Baby Blues” because the older daughter is named Zoe and she has a baby sister. There’s a lot of days where it’s just like reading a comic about our house. I can totally see this happening in a few months:
