9 & 10 Month Favorites

9 & 10 Month Favorites

Well, time has gotten away from me and every time I sat down to put together Blaire’s 9 month must-haves, I just couldn’t seem to get it finished up. Once I was finally getting it finished (after Blaire turned 10 months old) I realized that she really has been drawn to the same things the past two months, so I just combined them. At this age Blaire is…

Now that it’s basically winter outside, it’s time to start preparing for cold season. Poor Blaire has been battling a cold for the past two weeks. It got worse over the weekend so we went to the doctor on Monday. He assured us that it’s still just a cold and it will eventually pass. We’re no strangers to a sick baby… Throughout her 8 months, Blaire has had…

Teething Baby Favorites

Anyone who has cared for a teething baby knows it can be hard, heartbreaking and sometimes it’s just frustrating! There’s nothing worse than a baby in pain, and parents who feel helpless when it comes to dealing with that pain. The worst part about teething? You don’t know that your baby is actually starting to cut teeth AND cutting a tooth can take weeks! Symptoms of a teething baby…

6 Month Favorites

6 Month Favorites

Now that Blaire is six months old, she’s always sitting up when she’s playing on the floor. She especially loves toys that she can chew on whether she’s sitting up or laying down. She also has a few trusty favorites that have been by her side for the past few months. She just looks so big sitting up on the floor, babbling away to her toys. Time is…

  • 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
