She is perfection and we are so grateful and relieved that she's here. Our sweet little caboose. 

My friend Anne came to snap some photos of our family just a few days before Christmas.

Eight days old! My sleepiest baby.

Checking in with some of the latest soundbites from around here!

ELOISE:

"Mommy when you lived in the olden days did Pop use a stone hammer?"

"Why are you more of a boss than Daddy because you tell everyone what to do and Daddy just lets us do our own thing?"

"When will al...

Who needs to hack Halloween, you ask? When in prior years you've been known as the Grinch of Halloween (me), you (I) need a few tricks up your (my) sleeve to get through. I'm pleasantly surprised to report that we all had a wonderful Halloween, and I wasn't grinchy at...

I'm sure I've talked about "What's saving your life right now?" before, but it was on my mind this morning, one of those CRAZY mornings that found me nearly three hours into constant motion and commotion before I could as much as run a brush through my hair or brush my...

First: Cutchogue!

You know how at certain points in life, everything happens all at once? That has been this summer for Eloise—so many milestones within weeks.

First she lost her first two teeth. Then on our beach vacation (which I have meant to do a post about but blogging just isn't ha...

Summer is fast and loose. Three kids, pregnancy, and a couple weeks in a row of no camps—it's hard! We've had an adjustment as we've settled into being home all day, all together. It's been a bit rocky.

There has been lots of sibling fighting, lots of yelling, lot...

In pregnancy I find that things affect me more. I've always been a sensitive person (HSP, INFJ, I have all the acronyms working for/against me), but when pregnant, I have a different level of thin skin. 

Maybe it's some kind of survival mechanism that alerted our a...
