Jenson update: 4.5 years

This boy is the best.  He has such love in his heart, and is so sweet and fun.  He’s happiest when he’s making others happy, but he;s also sensitive and shy, and feels things deeply.  He loves music and being silly and telling knock knock […]

From the mouth of Jenson: December 2015

When Jenson really started talking, he was constantly cracking us up with things he would say, or surprising us with his verbal skillz.  I bought a wall calendar that had blank lines on the top page, and the calendar at the bottom and hung it […]

Jenson Update: 2.25

Since toddlers change less than babies, I wanted to switch to quarterly posts for Jenson after age 2.  This post is nearly 2 months late and reflects up until 2.25 years, shortly after Marlowe was born.  With the addition of Marlowe to the family, life […]
