happy first birthday, benjamin!

March 21, 2018
Benjamin 12 months

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.  Happy first birthday to my baby boy Benjamin Robert. I cannot believe we are celebrating one whole year with him today. I thought this milestone might be easier after my first baby, but it’s not. It’s still the strange mix of excitement for what’s to come, pride for…

Ben: 11 Months

Benjamin Robert 11 months

I have been doing these 2 months at a time, but I have a big post ready for his first birthday (tomorrow!) so I published month 11 by itself.  Weight: 20.5lbs Wearing: Mostly 12 months  Favorite Things: Remotes, swinging, he loves “reading” by himself aka turning the pages in books,  Biggest Milestone: Teeth #5 and #6.

Ben, 9 & 10 Months Old

9 months Weight/Weight: 20.3lbs (24%) / 20.3″ (45%) Wearing: Mostly into 12 months now. Favorite Things: He loves when we read to him, he still loves to chew on everything, and loves to crawl over and get into whatever his sister is playing with. Biggest Milestone: His third tooth popped through just the day before he turned 9 months. It’s his top right (if you’re looking at him). He is also pulling himself…

Ben, 7 & 8 Months Old

Favorite Things: Rolling around on the floor, pulling hair, chewing on everything. Biggest Milestone: Rolling consistently and getting his first tooth!  Biggest Challenge: Sleep. I miss my little baby who slept through the night. My Favorite Part of This Stage: Messy baby face while Ben is eating. He loves almost everything, so far he…

Ben: 5 & 6 months

November 2, 2017
Ben 5 & 6 months old

My baby boy is already 7 months old, so I’m late on his 5 & 6 month update. He is growing so quickly and already wanting to keep up with his big sis. He definitely has more hair than she did at his age… even more than she had at a year, probably. He is the happiest baby. He isn’t sleeping as well as he did when he…

Benjamin’s birth: my VBAC birth story

September 20, 2017
Newborn Ben

Holy. Geeze. Ben is 6 months old. HOW?! I thought it was time I share his birth story with you all because better late than never, right? Let’s start with a little back story. Blaire was breech my entire pregnancy, thus forcing me in to a planned C Section and I was actually so HAPPY to have a C Section. Our birthing classes terrified me and a C…
