Some of Emilio's favorite words (so I don't...
Happy (I die when he says it, it is the cutest emphasis on the p)
Duck (all about the ducks right now and it isn't just once it is, "Duck, duck, duck, duck, duck")
Flower (This is brand new and adorable, good timing with Spring)
And then all the B words that come out the same- Bed, Book, Banana, Ball
Emilio, 15 months old! Look at you. The biggest change in the last month is how many more words you’re picking up. You’re getting pretty skilled at mimicking us. If we say something a couple of times that we know you can repeat you catch on. Just today you came home from daycare saying UNO and holding up one finger. I think your favorite word right now is no. We don’t mind...
On Easter, Commercialism, and Raising a child →

Why, I thought, do we need to have another “excuse” to buy a bunch of cheap plastic toys (or more expensive things as the case may be) to give to our children?

Keeping it Real
Oh Hey. I’m tired. Really really tired. There were a couple of days, when Emilio was back to just 1 or 2 night wakings to nurse, but Sunday night he was up every hour and last night up 4 times. I’m not doing myself any favors by staying up too late doing things like, finishing laying out his first year photo book. I know it will pass, I know he is more than capable of...

Sharing on Sleep Sharing
Co-Sleeping, Family Bed, however you want to say it. We do it. I don’t really get the people that talk about, “Oh no I do all the things I said I would NEVER do as a Parent.” Who goes around talking about things they would never do? And why would you limit yourself when thinking about an experience you have never had? Anyway, I didn’t do it. Sure, I had some...

Once Upon a Time, I was a beginner triathlete, that blog up there captured it. Then, I had a baby. Follow along as I attempt to get back to it and get that blog back in shape (hahahaha)
