Ben: 13 & 14 months

May 27, 2018
Benjamin Robert, April 2018

Ben has had so many firsts and milestones in the past two months. He went from crawling to running, looks like a big boy after his first haircut, gave up formula and is sleeping in his own crib. Ben’s stats and photos for 13 months are from March 21 through April 21 and 14 months are from April 21 through May 21. Most of his exciting firsts came…

We have finally had some sunshine this past week and it’s been so refreshing to be able to get these kiddos outside! Last weekend, we went to a little local ice cream and candy shop for lunch and ice cream. And, of course, had to pick up some of our favorite candies while we were there. Ben slept the whole time, so it was quiet and relaxing, and…

Ben's first wagon ride

 Kraft-Heinz sponsored this post, but the opinions are my own. Going back to work after Ben was born hasn’t been easy. After I had Blaire, I took a job that would let me work from home 3 days and commute to work 2 days/week. Being able to spend that extra time at home with her did SO much for me. I continued in that job until she was…

Trip to the Lake

Lake Visit July 2017

Now we try to squeeze in a trip each weekend. We decided to give our local lake a try a few weeks ago because we thought Blaire would like playing in the…
