Introducing Marlowe Belle

Introducing Marlowe Belle

A little over a week ago, we welcomed Marlowe Belle to the world.  She was born on December 29, 2015, weighed 8 lbs., 6 oz., and was 20.5 inches long.  She’s a sweet and snuggly baby and we are all happy and healthy. Jenson is […]

Quick visit for a baptism

Quick visit for a baptism

The Sunday after Thanksgiving, we had our nephews baptism to attend.  The timing was going to be wonky for Jenson’s nap, so we elected to skip mass in favor of making the drive later, so that Jenson would sleep on the way for an early […]

Thanksgiving 2015

Thanksgiving 2015

We visited my family over Thanksgiving since we aren’t going to get to go back for Christmas because it will be too close to my due date.  I don’t wish to deliver in Youngstown…  We decided at the last minute to head back on Tuesday […]

Nana and Pawpaw overnights

Nana and Pawpaw overnights

Lo family helped us out a few times in November, and Jenson was thrilled with it.  He loves his Nana and Papaw time.  When we ask him if he wants to see them, he usually says “Nana, Papaw, and Sadie?” (his cousin), like she belongs […]

Dawes Arboretum and Dupler’s Pumpkinland with Gramma

Dawes Arboretum and Dupler’s Pumpkinland with Gramma

I’m still catching up on posts from October with all of the fun things we did. One of the days while my mom was here after Jenson’s birthday, we headed to Dawes Arboretum to walk around before lunch.  They have this Story Trail for kids, […]

The Zoo, EmmaLydia, and a visit home

The Zoo, EmmaLydia, and a visit home

Jenson has always been fond of my nieces, Emma and Lydia.  They live just a few miles from my parent’s house, so they get a lot of time with him when we are home.  But after they came to his birthday party, he became absolutely […]

Jenson’s 3rd trip to Vegas

Jenson’s 3rd trip to Vegas

It occurred to me that Jenson has never been to the beach, but has been to Vegas 3 times now (4th if you count in utero).  No, we are not gambling addicts, and neither is he.  My sister’s family lives there, and Max is 4 […]

The pressure is on

The pressure is on

I’m at 30 weeks now, so in 9-11 weeks, life is going to get MUCH busier and harder for a bit.  Let’s not forget that there are 2 major holidays within those 9-11 weeks that also need to be celebrated, shopped for, decorated for, etc. […]

Superman versus Batman

Superman versus Batman

Max was coming to Ohio to visit, so I when I saw these superman/batman shirts at Target, I had to get them. I love how it looks like they are collaborating on some sort of secret superhero project.  Really, they were probably competing for the […]

New year, new changes?

New year, new changes?

We rang in our new year with a really sick baby, so things can only go up from there! I’m pretty excited about this year. Every year for the past 5 years we seem to have some sort of major change: getting married, buying a […]
