  • Happy Prime Day!! I’m so excited to be shopping all the deals today, how about you?? #ad Lucky for us, my fave @kindsnacks are on sale! You can stock up just in time for the craziness of back to school. This Caramel Almond and Sea Salt bar is sweet and salty with just 5g of sugar! It’s keeping me going while I shop all day. 😉 #kindcollective #bekindtoyourself #primeday #amazonprimeday
  • Blaire cleaned her room and made her bed today. I think it’s so cute when she makes her bed and carefully arranges her animals! She usually cleans her room once a week, Sunday is the perfect day to start fresh. The majority of her toys are in there, she gets them all set up how she wants and I just feel bad making her put them away! Do your kids pick up their toys every night?

  • 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

  • messy house, no makeup, and a kid who doesn’t want to wake up from his late car nap... meaning bedtime will be difficult. But what’s so different about that?! 🤪☹️ When your kids come out of your bed for the 1937 time tonight, just know you’re not alone. •

  • If you need me I’ll be here taking a nap. JK. I’ll be in the car, curled up with my maternity pillow eating milk duds... hopefully taking a nap at some point. And I already changed into a comfy tee and some shorts that won’t button for the 6 hour drive. 🤣🤣🤣 How’s your Monday going?

  • this. kid. He just melts me with how freaking adorable he is. Then he will go and say something like “Mama I want my binky NOWWWW” and then I remember he’s just as crazy as he is cute. 😍😝 #benjaminp

  • I’m 26 weeks now and this is how my every day goes.
me: 
stranger: when are you due?
me: October 8.
stranger: 😳😳😳😳
I can’t believe it’s only another 14 weeks to go! Ben was born just past 38 weeks, so it could only be another 12. 😬😬😬🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 #photobyblaire •

  • Blaire walked in on me doing the dishes and asked if she could take over. After, she proclaimed she was really good at it so it should be her new “chore”. They’re all yours, kid. 🧽 Do your kids do chores? Do they get an allowance? #blairep
  • This kid! He loves the water just like his sister and they’d spend all day and night at the pool if we let them. I can’t wait for the long weekend! What are your plans for the 4th? 💥 #benjaminp

blaire: 4.5 years old

SHARE THIS

Blaire's first day of prekNicknames: Blairsey, Sweetie Pea, Baby Girl

Height/Weight: 42.1″ (53 percentile) | 42lbs (78 percentile)

Learning: Blaire started school the week before Labor Day and she is loving it! She already is sounding out words while she plays games on her iPad or when we’re reading books. She talks about God more to us and also has started using new words and then telling us what they mean. She loves making new friends and loves her teachers! 

Watching: Muppet Babies (She calls them Muffin Babies, it’s my favorite thing), Barbie, Lego DC Super Hero Girls, Spirit and anything with Disney Princesses. 

Reading: She loves that she gets to go to the library now at school. The first book she brought home was a Barbie book. She loves to look at books, but usually let’s Ben pick what books for us to read. She loves to “read” to him and it’s so cute to see her tell the story in her own words. 

What She Wants to be When She Grows Up: She says, “A person who helps people”. She loves teachers and nurses and moms. She sees so many of our friends and family members who have jobs that involve helping people, so that’s all she really knows that she wants to do. 

Favorite Things to Do: She loves to play outside, sing/dance, play barbies and play pretend. She has a wooden doll house she received for Christmas and she has a huge collection of “dolls” who she likes to play with in the house. She has a bunny family, she has some wooden princess dolls, a plastic doll family and last, but not least, Peppa Pig’s family. They all play together and have quite the extended family. 

Favorite Foods: Honestly if she could survive on tomatoes, broccoli, grapes, cucumbers and celery, she would. Especially if she could have a side of ranch with them… SO basically just a veggie tray for breakfast, lunch and dinner. She would also eat chicken Nuggets and any kind of chips, but only if you insisted. 

Biggest Milestone: Starting pre-k and not having any issues with drop off. She hasn’t cried or whined about going. Every morning she wakes up and asks if it’s a school day. She gets excited to get ready for school and loves hanging out with me in the drop off line each day. Her teacher emails pictures throughout the day each day. Sometimes she’s playing in a group of friends, other times she’s doing something on her own. But she always looks like she’s happy… But she definitely runs out to us when she gets out each afternoon. 

My Favorite Part of This Stage: I love that she still thinks of her family as the most important thing to her. I know one day she won’t think we’re cool and won’t think the world revolves around us… but, for now, she does. She is very patient and great with Ben about 90% of the time. She’s still working on not getting frustrated with him when he ruins something she’s been working on. We are still trying to find the right amount of screen time without turning her into a zombie. So it’s fun for me to try to figure out things to do with her to keep her off of her iPad. Whether it’s finding her fun coloring or activity printables for her to work on or playing with her in her room, she loves that we’re spending time together and that I’m doing something she thinks is fun.

Hey, time. Slow down! I am enjoying my last year with my sassy girl before she leaves me for Kindergarten.

  • 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

  • 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
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #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
  • It’s that time of the year again... you were just packing away the summer clothes and then it’s all of a sudden 80°. What’s the weather like where you live? #blaireandben
