Our Organized Entry Way


When we were house hunting I remember walking into our now home and immediately falling in love with the entry. I had recently pinned an adorable entry way set up and the space to put one together in our new home was definitely on my wish list. Although it has now been two years since we moved […]

Halloween Weekend {Wordless Wednesday}


We had a fantastic Halloween weekend. My parents came Friday morning so they could tag along Trick-Or-Treating at our local mall. Saturday Rob and I left for the Marine Corp Ball while my parents watched Parker. My sister met us at the hotel so she could watch Caity in the room. Sunday we met my […]

16 Thoughts in Parker’s 28th Month


Dear Parker, I can’t believe another month has come and gone. I know Mommy has been busy taking care of Caity and hasn’t had as much time to play with you. Thank you for being such a good little boy and understanding. Iv’e been doing a lot of thinking over the last month about your first […]

Caity’s One Month Update


  It’s hard to believe that we brought Caity home from the hospital a month ago already. I suspect that is mostly because the days seem to run together lately. We have settled into our new life pretty quickly and with minimal bumps. Parker has been fantastic around Caity and hasn’t acted out much at […]
