Blaire: 19 Months


Our little 19 month old… she’s a wild one. She’s still learning lots of new words and doing her best to speak to us in sentences of jibberish. It’s so cute because she really is trying her hardest to communicate to us and gets upset when we don’t know exactly what she’s saying. But she’s trying so hard and I just love her little voice! She’s still learning to make new animal noises and to identify her body parts. As you’ll see in the pictures from this month, she has a HUGE personality for such a small girl. She is such a little comedian and she never stops moving. She loves singing, dancing, running and climbing. She also loves taking care of her babies. She’s into giving high fives, hugs and blowing kisses. She is so caring and sweet but also has an ornery side… but she’s so cute that it’s hard to ever be mad at her. Even if you find her with your makeup on her face, under her finger nails and on the couch. Kids. Am I right?

Oh, Blaire. I never dreamed that I could be so proud of someone. Every day you amaze us with something new. I spend every day being nostalgic about how much my baby has grown, but also with such an excitement for the future that’s still ahead of us. Happy 19 months, baby girl! xo

    These are such sweet pictures. It must be so crazy for you as a mom since kids grow so quickly at that age!

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben
  • Bsquared #BlaireandBen 😍😘☺️
  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
