1 year of John Wicks

John Wicks, You are a whole year old {well, actually 13 months…}. Wow, this year flew by! It’s hard to remember life without our Wicksie/J-Dub/Boo-Boo. How fun it is having you in our family, sweet boy!  I love watching your little personality peek out as you grow and develop. You are so funny! You love…

06.04.13

Tomorrow, my baby boy # 2 turns one. I think on the the birthdays of my children now and for years to come, I will always look back and remember the birthday. And the birth experience. Because, honestly, the whole thing is life changing. One day and one experience (giving birth) changes your life in a very…

10 Months of John Wicks

I’m a month behind. Yet again. So, this will be a 10-11 month update. Honestly, I consider it a victory that I’m getting it posted before his 11 month birthday (May 4). Also, with Luke I somehow had time for elaborate monthly photo shoots with my “real” camera. With John Wicks, I’m just dumping all…

8 Months of JW

8 months, and this guy sure is a little delight! *LOVES to eat. Nursing 5 (very quick) times a day and eating cereal, fruits, and veggies. Definitely prefers fruit over veggies. Starting to prefer finger foods. LOVES, LOVES, LOVES Mum-Mums, puffs and any type of bread. Tried cantaloupe, blueberries, and (solid) banana this month. Really…

7 months of JW (part 1)

Honesty, I can barely keep up with these monthly update posts. I write one, blink, and it’s time for the next one. Is that just life with children? Am I going to blink and realize they’re grown? On the hard days, it sure doesn’t feel like it, but I fear that’s the reality. So, I’m…

6 months of John Wicks

John Wicksie bug,  I can’t believe your 1/2 birthday has already passed us by! Man, it’s been a fast 6 months.  I tell people that you’re 6 months going on 6. You think you are such a big boy. You’re dying to get into the mix with your brother. You try to grab absolutely everything…

5 months of John Wicks

It’s hard to believe we’re creeping up on the half-year mark with little Dub. It doesn’t seem all that long ago that I wrote Luke’s 5 month update. I don’t really have time to dwell with nostalgia on the days of old or the swift passing of time, though. Most days, I feel like I’m…

4 months of John Wicks

Oh, how fast the months fly! {Especially with #2.} I can hardly believe our Wicksie has been here four whole months. He is such a sweet, good baby. He’s absolutely delightful, in fact. Bless his heart, I’ve hauled him all over the Southeastern United States in a month, and he’s just rolled with it. He…

3 months of John Wicks

Three months is that magical time when I feel like we start to emerge from the deep waters of newborn newness and slowly move out of the “survival mode” required to stay afloat in those waters. Our life feels like it’s slowly regaining some normalcy. Well, our new normal. I’ve been out and about with…

2nd kid catch-up

If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you probably know that I took about 500,000 pictures of Luke in his first two years of life. Seriously over-photographed child. {However, I don’t think I’ll regret having so many images :)}. Little John Wicks may never catch up, though. I’ve been good about snapping…

Luke’s 2nd Birthday Party

In my two short years of having children, I’ve already developed a love/hate relationship with birthday parties. On the one hand, I wouldn’t trade celebrating the milestone of another year: taking pictures, making memories, eating good food and cake amidst precious themed decor, blah, blah, blah. On the other hand, though, I would trade the…

2 Months of JW

Dear John Wicks,  You are two months old and the sweetest little pumpkin. I’m not just being a biased mom when I say you are such a good baby—so chill, so go-with-the-flow. Most of the time you have a serious, pensive look about you, but lately you’ve started smiling and cooing at us when we…
