blaire turns 5 | ben turns 2

Blaire & Ben at Wallace's

This spring both of our babies have celebrated their birthdays, with Blaire turning five and Ben turning two. They both have such strong-willed personalities. They LOVE to play together, but also play well separately because, well, they both want to get their own way. I hope Ben always enjoys having multiple mothers because Blaire is always watching him. She inspects the age for every toy he gets, even…

ben: 18 months

Ben, 18 months old

My little guy is a year and a half old already. HOW. It’s just a bittersweet age. He looks more like a toddler than a baby. He’s talking more. He wants to be independent. He says “no” when I try to help him. He knows what he wants and is really learning to communicate it to us. He has quite the temper if he doesn’t get his way,…

Benjamin, 15 months old

Ben turned 15 months old on June 21 and I still can’t believe it. He’s definitely not a baby anymore. He is always busy running around, climbing things and causing trouble. He loves animals, he says “ruff ruff” and “quack quack”. We finally found a few movies he is happy to sit still for a few minutes to watch, Sing and The Star. He does still love Puppy…

one whole year of benjamin robert

Ben 1 through 12 Months

This baby boy has been one for two whole weeks. It doesn’t seem like it was a whole year ago when I was snuggling that squishy little newborn. I’m so happy he still loves to snuggle his mama. We did these same pictures with Blaire until she was two years old, so I guess we’ll see if I can keep it up with Ben that long! haha. (Second…

happy first birthday, benjamin!

Benjamin 12 months

 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 all they’ve accomplished and nostalgia for those sweet newborn cuddles.  I know I have said this before, but I always…
