    February 4, 2019

    The first quarter of Annie being two was packed full of living! We celebrated Christmas, birthdays, and a wedding. It was wonderful and busy…so busy.

    Annie’s September 2018 Summary (23 Months)

    October 17, 2018

    Well gosh, September was not a month for the faint-hearted. It was just crazy and it flew by because of it. Half of the month wasn’t even spent at home, and then the second half was spent wishing to get out of the house! Annie had it rough. She was so ill for a couple…

    Annie’s August 2018 Summary (22 Months)

    September 5, 2018

    She’s almost two, guys! My tiny baby girl who was born just yesterday (or so it seems) is creeping up to her second birthday. I’m usually excited when my children are approaching new milestones, but I haven’t quite been able to get my head around this one. Perhaps it’s because her baby sister’s due date…

    Annie’s July 2018 Summary (21 Months)

    August 8, 2018

    It feels as though July was a long month. I guess that’s a good thing considering how fast the other months have flown by this year. Annie has grown up even more so and it’s blowing my mind that she’s really close to turning 2-years old. I think I’ve been so focused on the house…

  • Annie’s June 2018 Summary (20 Months)

    July 4, 2018

    June was recovery month for us as a family. Annie probably adjusted the best through all of the craziness that May and the beginning of June brought. I can hardly believe that she is 20-months old now and is closing in on the 2-year mark! (The beautiful images in this post were taken by the…

    June 13, 2018

    This month was a bit of a blur. It was full of big family events as well as a nasty upper respiratory virus. Considering what the month consisted of, Annie did tremendously well. *this post contains affiliate links Toddler Routine No change. 7 DWT 7:30/8 Breakfast 9-10:15 Independent Playtime 10:30 Snack 11:30 Lunch 12-3 Nap 3…

    May 9, 2018

    We didn’t have any big deal things on in April. It was a pretty status quo kind of month. As has been the case for the last several months, Annie changed and grew significantly.

    April 11, 2018

    March was a busy month for us. We were back and forth for different events. Once upon a time Annie really struggled with overstimulation and overtiredness when we were out too often. But, with age has come flexibility. As long as something interesting is happening, she’s a happy camper. Toddler Routine 7 DWT 7:30/8 Breakfast…

    February was a fairly uneventful month for us. We attended our annual church family camp at the beginning and then Shane had a few days off following.

  • Annie’s January 2018 Summary (15 Months)

    February 14, 2018

    I feel like January was big for Annie because she noticeably moved from ‘baby’ to ‘toddler’. In many ways, this meant things became a lot easier. We also made a big schedule change, which went much more smoothly than I had anticipated (thank goodness!). *this post contains affiliate links Routine Before switch: 7 DWT (Desired wake…
