Update: Josie

“We’re gonna have to keep our eye on this one!” No long stories for this update. Just short and sweet, like its subject. She’s smart, and cute, and cuddly. Who could ask for more? It was about this time two years ago when this little cutie-pie made her existence known to us. I can hardly […]


Update: Vivian

Oh, there is SO much to share about Vivian these days. She is doing incredibly well with her speech development and is learning so quickly these days!

We’ll see if it continues… This batch from February has a good sample of some new signs from Josie, the girls playing, and Mac at Grandma’s playing drums […]

Several weeks ago, the teacher had her saying “I want” before a word. I silently cringed. If you know me, you probably […]


Bad Day

I had a bad day. One of those days where it seemed nothing could go right. One that leaves you saying at every turn, “really? really? come on!” Nothing catastrophic happened, nothing even terribly memorable, just enough small things going badly that it wore me down, and this time it had nothing to do with […]
