Welcome to the world, Baby James!

Baby faces are the best.

This little guy was in a big hurry to get out and explore. He arrived 3 weeks early and is as healthy as can be. My little brother and gorgeous sister-in-law are doing well with their new bundle of joy. I’m not sure I’ll ever get over how much fun it is to watch your siblings become parents.

We had the honor of making an impromptu trip to Titusville this weekend to meet the little guy.  He looks just like my little brother as a baby, right down to the crazy hair.

Annalynn was obviously thrilled to meet her baby cousin. 🙂

Oh, man, it’s crazy how quickly you forget how to hold a newborn. They really do grow so fast. I can barely remember Annalynn that little. Now she feels like a giant. An adorable, amazing giant – but still a giant.

It’s hard to believe that I’m now an aunt to three, and in just a few short months it will be five. The more the merrier! Ben and Ashley had a bunch of our cousins over on Saturday and there were six kids under playing in the living room together. The holidays are going to be very full this year. I can’t wait!

Becoming a mom is a beautiful, amazing thing. It’s also really scary and really hard. That’s why mom friends are amazing. They just get it. A good mom friend isn’t there to judge; she’s there to celebrate the good times, commiserate with the bad, and offer her own stories that make you feel a little saner. more »

A Little Sprinkle

June 19, 2016

As cheesy as it sounds, my sister is my best friend. She knows me better than anyone else on the planet, she never judges me for anything I have to say, and she just “gets” me. Trust me, we didn’t start out that way. We shared a bedroom until we were teenagers and pretty much more »

Leftover 5K

June 6, 2016

Oh, hey! Look who ran a 5K this weekend (with my lil’ sidekick). There’s a race organizer in the local running community who’s pretty brilliant. A few years ago he started an event series called Best Damn Race (past recaps here , here, and here). It started with a “for runners, by runners” philosophy and has more »

Annalynn: 8 Months

June 1, 2016

Happy 8 Months, Annalynn! Oh, how you’ve grown! You’re wearing 6-9 month clothes (I’ve even started buying 12 months in some items!) and still in size 3 diapers. I’m not 100% sure about weight, but I’m guessing over 17 pounds by now. You have the best laugh in the whole wide world and seeing you more »

Beach Baby

May 30, 2016

Six years ago my parents rented a house on a secluded, low-key island and invited all of the kids, significant others, and dogs to join. It was the perfect vacation spot for our ever-growing family and one we’ve continued to return to year after year. Now, four weddings and two babies later (with two more more »
