Jenson

My biggest nursing supporter

My biggest nursing supporter

You might think that my biggest nursing supporter is Lo, or even my lactation consultant.  But no…it’s Jenson.  Although sometimes he gets mad when I have to feed Marlowe and he wants to sit on my lap and read, he’s more than happy to demonstrate […]

From the mouth of Jenson: 22 months

From the mouth of Jenson: 22 months

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 […]

Day in the Life: Home Alone with 2

Day in the Life: Home Alone with 2

Tuesday was the first day I was home alone with the kids for the day.  I talked a little about it (and how nervous I was) in this “Surviving” post.  I thought it would be fun to do a “Day in the Life” to document […]

Surviving.

Surviving.

Marlowe is almost 4 weeks old now and we are so in love with her.  Jenson loves her so much too and loves kissing her and holding her.  Since we’ve done this before, having a newborn isn’t as scary, but it’s more complicated with a […]

Facing Fears: Bumblebee and Bouncy House

Facing Fears: Bumblebee and Bouncy House

The weekend before Christmas, we were invited to a birthday party for Jenson’s friend Jaxon.  Jaxon is 2 years older than Jenson, and Jenson loves being around him and his bestie Emmy.  It was a small party with a big surprise for the birthday boy […]

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 […]

The last days with one

The last days with one

As we’ve been nearing the time for the birth of our second child, I often ponder what things will be like after the baby is here.  Things will change drastically – in a good way – and we are so excited.  At the same time, […]

Breakfast with Santa

Breakfast with Santa

Part two of Jenson visiting Santa went much better, thankfully.  We went to breakfast with Santa at Rusty Bucket and I think he actually had positive feelings towards Santa by the end of the event.  It was really the perfect situation for Jenson because he […]

Decorating Christmas Cookies

Decorating Christmas Cookies

Since Jenson was already a pro at decorating cookies from when he stayed at Nana and Papaw’s, I thought I’d let him help me make the sugar cookies. I mixed up the dough one day and let him help me cut some of the shapes […]

St. Nicholas Day 2015

St. Nicholas Day 2015

Last year I started doing St. Nicholas Day tradition with Jenson as a fun way to start off the holiday season.  As a back story, the history St. Nicholas is actually what where the story of Santa came from.  St. Nicholas’ wealthy parents died while […]
