First Trip to Yosemite

We made a list of the things we wanted to do one more time before we move.  The list may have been a bit ambitious, but we both agreed that the only thing we’d be devastated about if we didn’t get to do, was Yosemite. We first went in November 2013, just a few months […]

Avonlea | Two Months

Fastest two months of my life.  This little girl just learns more & gets even cuter every single day.  At her doctor’s appointment today she weighed 11.1 pounds & was 21 inches long!  Can’t believe just how fast she’s growing.  She’s finally passed Grayson’s birth weight, but still catching up on length! Firsts: Avonlea smiled […]

Friday Favorites | Vol. 8

our last pre-Avonlea date | The Friday before Avonlea was born, we went on a fancy date since we knew it would probably be the last thing like that that we would do for awhile.  We ate at one of our favorite places, Los Altos Grill.  Glad we made use of that time, since she […]

Making a Little Adventurer

One of my dreams for Avonlea is that she would seek adventure.  That she would not be satisfied just within the walls of our house, but she would want to get outside & see new things & go to new places.  I want her to be brave.  To do things that she didn’t know she […]
