Dear Blake, Whoa, the last month seems like it flew by. You’re 22 months old now….2 months away from being TWO. Can you believe it? I sure can’t. You are such a big boy now, and you just want to keep doing things that bigger boys do all the time. One transition that you, and […]

As soon as I heard that Jen was having her baby early, and due to some really unexpected circumstances, it was on my heart to make her baby girl a quilt. I went into my craft room to survey what I had to work with, and remembered that I had a few large half square triangles […]

We went to visit family for Thanksgiving this year and had a great time.  Took a few pictures and wanted to post them for us to be able to look back on in the years to come. We got in SUPER late on Tuesday night and so Wednesday was when we got to wake up […]

Dear Blake, You are 21 months old now, which is how old your brother was when you were born. It seems crazy to me that already, that much time has passed. You are such an incredible personality and quite the explorer. You are discovering new things that you can do every day, and you keep […]

Oh my goodness….Burke’s FIRST ever school picture day.  So crazy, thrilling, exciting, funny….all the things.  And nerves for Mommy too, since I was the one TAKING the pics.  I am not sure what possessed me to volunteer myself to take pictures of all the 3 and 4 year olds, but I did it.  And I’m […]

Kiwi Crate-ing with Burke

Since Burke stopped napping a few months ago, I have been struggling on ideas on what to do with him during this 3 hour stint.  I’d seen that my friend Sarah had done the kiwi crate box with her son, so I thought that it might be a nice idea to give it a try. […]

A Quilt for Burke

I started this quilt quite a while ago, and while it was laying on the floor in my sewing room one afternoon, Burke spotted it.  He said that he liked it, and asked if it was for him.  I truly wasn’t sure what I was going to do with this quilt, but when he got […]
