We Survived The 1st Year!


Our sweet baby Henry is now 1. I can’t believe it…it was the fastest year of my life! I’m not the greatest mom in the history of the world, but I’ve learned a few gems that I now live by and want to share. Henry has eaten his fair share of dirt, leaves, rocks and yucky stuff at the playground…and he is fine! We don’t let him make a meal of it, but it’s impossible…

On The Move!


Henry is on the move and things are cooking over in our little neck of the world. We’ve made some great progress with our house renovation but I’m saving those details for a later date! 🙂 Our Mini Man turned 11 months old last week and we are planning his 1st birthday party. I cannot believe it’s been a year since I had him…that was the FASTEST year of my life!!! Henry’s favorite thing to…

Hurricane Hank!


I think we can all agree that Hank the Tank could have probably weathered Hurricane Irma as it hit Longboat Key where we were vacationing! My baby boy is a tough little man who seems to laugh and giggle through everything, and I’m sure that would have been the case with Irma! Our first family vacation to Longboat got cut short by 3 days…but we still had an awesome time! Henry loved the beach, the…

Of Course, Henry Took His First Steps In A Bar!


Since our sweet boy is a purveyor of all the fine establishments in Lawrenceville, it’s only fitting that he took his first steps at Franktuary! Franktuary serves gourmet hot dogs (Mark’s favorite!) and poutines (Mark’s other favorite!) and so it was the absolute perfect place for Henry to take his first 5 steps. The bartender, waitresses and other patrons cheered for him and then he gave everyone a Hi-5 because he just learned how to…

How A Baby Makes Marriage Hard And When We Had Our Breakthrough


Our baby rocks. Henry is the happiest and sweetest little boy, and we love him to the moon and back! But having a baby is hard…much harder than we thought. So hard that we asked each other, “Should we have even had a baby?!” When we first brought Henry home from the hospital, we were running on adrenaline and bliss. Those first couple weeks are a blur and we were just so happy to have…

Vacation and poop…like LOTS of poop.


We’ve been away from the blog for a hot minute because we’ve been living life…and taking care of a 7-month-old who is a VERY busy boy! A few weeks ago, we took Henry to Toronto to see his cousins… He loved every minute of the trip including when he blew out his diaper in the car and had poop all over him and the car seat. Mark and I laughed and laughed as we cleaned…

Watch Your Mouth!


My sweet boy is googling and gurgling and making all sorts of sounds as he tries to figure out how to talk! While this is amazing, it’s also giving me major anxiety because I have a horrible mouth…as in, I could make a sailor blush. 🙂 I am not proud (and I know my mother is mortified by this) and I am working on it, but the other night while we were playing with Hank…

Daddy's Little Sidekick


Guess where Mark and Henry spend most of their father-son bonding time? Yep, you guessed it…Home Depot, Lowe’s and Busy Beaver. Hank the Tank loves going to the hardware store with his dad…at least that’s what we think. We’ll continue to drag him there until he starts to talk and tells us otherwise. 🙂 Mark is prepping our Victorian house this weekend for the new windows that are coming. My dad is going to help,…

Mark will only go on a family walk beer is involved.


Yep…that’s what my husband wants, so that’s what my husband gets! Thankfully, we live in Lawrenceville where the number of breweries and bars is endless, so we have many, many options. 🙂 To be fair, I also love our new family ritual. Every night, we put Hank in the Rolls Royce of strollers and go for a nice, hour-long walk through the neighborhood. Sometimes we stop for a drink at the beginning…sometimes, we grab a…

Old, Sexy Dad!


My sweet hubby Mark turned 40 this week…it’s a big one and Hank and I wanted to do something special for him! We surprised Daddy at his office with a big birthday lunch! The whole office was in on it and set up a bunch of fake meetings and kept Mark busy while the caterers came in and while I set up the cake! Since Mark is now an old, sexy dad…we had to celebrate…
