2 Months with Birdie

I am smitten with this kitten! Time really does fly so much faster this time around. Two months!? Mizuki's cheeks are filling out and her smiles are growing wider. I had the first moment yesterday when I left her lying on the floor, and came back to her in a totally different position. She is just this sweet little buddy who, as long as she's fed and rested (I'm with ya) is content to...

1 Month With Birdie

This little bird has been around for a whole month! The longest shortest time is truly the most fitting description, it feels like forever ago that she was born, and yet how is she that old!?I looked back at Sloane’s one month update and have pretty much the exact same sentiments. The one difference is last time I said “I know nothing and google everything” and this time I know nothing and...

Cousins

I feel like I have a lot of thoughts and words swirling around in my head and heart these days, but don't have the drive or courage to get them written down. I don't know what it is that's holding me back, and I'd like to get over it, but even now as I think about describing the 'magic of cousins' there's some barrier there, keeping me from getting it out.  So, pictures will do for...

Traveling with Baby!

As we we have prepared for various trips with Sloane, I tried to research and ready myself on what to expect from our experience.  Unfortunately I had a hard time finding someone who would tell me exactly what Sloane was going to do (weird right?) so, as with everything else in her little life, we had prepare as best we could and then wait and see. (I will say Have Baby Will...

7 Months With Sloane

Cozy, quiet house, sipping coffee, baby down for her afternoon nap.  Just a week ago she was fighting her afternoon naps like crazy and we had the worst week of nighttime sleep.  Since then we realized that she needed an exact nap schedule rather than the flexible one that had been working previously, she fought a cold, and just a couple days ago I finally felt her first tooth.I've...

6 Months with Sloane

I'm not sure how we got here but it's true, she's half a year old.  She gets more interactive by the day it seems, chatting, copying, wiggling and rolling.  I love that it's not just us trying to get a reaction anymore, she's trying to get one out of us! Something I've been thinking about more and more as she grows and I grow more in love with her is The Fear.  I've written about...

3 Months with Sloane

This little sweet pea is now at the three month mark!  Needless to say we are crazy about her, and love the richness that she adds to our life.  She gives us the best smiles in the word. She is the master of hand-gnawing, which sometimes can get in the way of more important things like eating.  She is getting better and better at grabbing things like toys and blankets (or our...

2 Months Old

Two months is really not a very long time, but considering how much we and Sloane have grown in those two months it feels much longer.  Just look below.  It's ridiculous... I wonder if she literally gets bigger overnight. I'll be nursing her one morning and notice that the circumference of her head seems wider.  The rate of growth is truly incredible. She makes eye...

1 Month With Sloane

We've made it through one month with this sweet thing!  I keep thinking that this has got to be one of the most difficult life adjustments we will ever go through, so making it through the initial month of that is worth celebrating!  It simultaneously feels like it went by so fast and like it was forever ago that she was born.  First of all: I have no idea what I'm doing.  I...
