I love documenting how Blaire has grown each month!

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…

Blaire: 18 Months

This little girl. Her cheesy, crazy smiles are just getting cuter and cuter. She is such a little busy bee. She is learning lots of new words and is getting great at repeating words and animal sounds. She can show you most of her facial features (nose, ears, eyes, mouth) and her hands and feet when you ask where they are. She also knows some animal noises. She…

Blaire: 17 Months

This kid! Before becoming a mom, I was sure I’d look at my kid and feel something I never had. I knew it’d be a mixture of unconditional love and pride. Little did I know I’d have that feeling about 500 times per day. She is always doing something funny, cute or crazy and I wouldn’t have it any other way! She’s learning something new every minute and…

Blaire: 16 Months

Our not-so-little girl is officially 16 months old! Time is definitely flying by. Blaire gets crazier and crazier every day! She’s a wild one. She loves to wrestle and climb things. She LOVES slides, the taller and faster, the better! She’s saying even more words and is babbling made up sentences/words ALL of the time.She loves to swim and splash. Her favorite word is still dad (or da…

Blaire: 15 Months

Blaire is officially 15 months old! She is still wild, crazy and as sweet as can be. She loves to blow kisses (complete with a “muah” sound effect), give hugs and is even now turning back in to our cuddly baby girl we once had! Now that she can climb up on to the couch, she likes laying on us and rubbing our arms, or playing with our hair.…

Blaire: 14 Months

Our girl is 14 months old! She is so smart and is learning things so quickly these days! It seems like she just won’t slow down.  In the past week she’s learned more words (her favorite is “Go! Go! Go!”), figured out how to climb up on to the couch and had two molars pop through. She is always on the go and we can barely keep up…

Blaire: 13 Months

Our girl is 13 months old… and as crazy as ever!  Over the past few weeks she has learned lots of new words and is quite the wiggly worm. She now can say: night night, uh oh, mom, mama, dada, nana, dog, cat, yeah, yuck, hi and bye. I’m sure I’m forgetting something! She points all the time and I think being able to communicate with us has made…

Watch Blaire Grow: From Newborn to 12 Months

I had sooo many pinterest ideas for what I wanted to do to capture Blaire each month throughout her first year. Seeing her grow up next to her favorite little bear and this throw pillow is just perfect. The past few months it was impossible to get a photo of her bear sitting next to her, because she’s so obsessed with her that she has to be holding her. Well… now…

Blaire: 12 Months

This little girl is finally one year old! She is just as funny and charming as ever. She is one of the fastest walkers around and lights up every room. She has six teeth (three on top and three on bottom) and is still sleeping through the night (most nights!). She has said quite a few words, but the only words she really says on a daily basis…

Blaire: 11 Months

It’s here! This is Blaire’s last monthly update before she’s a YEAR OLD! I can’t believe she is now 11 months old. This update is the most emotional for me, and I think it must just be because she is becoming so independent. She sleeps in her own room, can feed herself, walk and she hasn’t used a bottle in a week! (We found the perfect sippy cup…

Blaire: 10 Months

Our little girl turned 10 Months Old on Christmas! Only two more months and this little girl will be ONE YEAR OLD?! AHH! Blaire now has three teeth and is just a babbling machine. Her two favorite words are still dada and mama. We also swear she said Elmo when she opened up her Elmo on Christmas Eve. She is the sweetest little girl and smiling is her…

Blaire: 9 Months

Well, I’m posting this a few weeks late… but our girl is 9 months old! I can’t believe it. 9 months feels like such a milestone. I spent 9 months growing this kid and now she’s spent 9 months on this Earth. Weird? Maybe. Crazy? Definitely! Blaire is still babbling all the time. She said “mom” for the first time a few weeks ago. Every time she says…

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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
