Happy 3rd Birthday, Blaire!


My baby is three! HOW?! Time has flown by. It seems like just yesterday we were bringing home our little blue-eyed, red-haired, three-day-old baby from the hospital. And now… here she is. Three years old, singing and dancing in the living room in her Princess Sofia dress-up shoes and her Doc McStuffins stethoscope. 

Blaire is 3!

Nicknames: Blaire Bear and Blairsey

Height/Weight: 38″ | 32lbs

Favorite Words/Things to Say: One of my favorite things to hear her say is What’s up mom? She starts every morning with, Good morning, mommy! How did you sleep? And it just melts my heart. She is so sweet and so caring. She loves to sing I’m Bringing Home My Baby Bumblebee, I’m Bringing Home My Baby Dinosaur, and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

What She’s Learning: She started a new daycare at the beginning of January and we call it “school”. Since starting, she’s learned to count to 20 in English and to 10 in Spanish, she can sing the ABCs, she recognizes all of her colors.

Favorite Things: Doc McStuffins, stuffed animals, Frozen, baby dolls, eating cereal at night with mama, drinking chocolate milk, playing at the park and swimming.

Favorite Foods: Mac & Cheese, Milk, Chocolate Milk, Juice, Apples, Yogurt, Apple Sauce, Fruit Snacks and Green Beans

Biggest Milestone: She’s now potty trained! Yay!

Biggest Challenge: Starting at a new daycare was really hard. But after a few weeks, Blaire really settled in and is learning a lot. She loves her new teachers and friends. Next up, she will be transitioning to the three-year-old room. Pray for me! Also, she HATES brushing her teeth.

My Favorite Part of This Stage: Seeing her personality develop and change. While she’s super sassy and always wants her way, she’s also so sweet and caring. She loves to help Jason and I in any way she can. She’s always dragging her step stool around the house wanting to help with dishes or the laundry.

Looking Forward To: Watching her become a big sister! Blaire Making MuffinsBlaire, Age 3 Blaire, Age 3
Blaire, being your mama is truly more amazing and rewarding than I ever imagined possible. Although you make me crazy with your strong-willed, stubborn and sassy personality, you also melt my heart 1000x a day. I wish I could freeze time and live these days over and over again! You’re getting too big, too fast, baby girl. We love you so much!

  • 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
