“A portrait of my baby boy, once a week, every week, in 2014.” August 24, 2014: This kid is all smiles at the Bay Area Discovery Museum. I love it here. I can sit back a little and let him explore. Sharp corners are padded, electrical outlets are baby proofed, there is a baby sized stream […]

{dear grayson} you are 7 months old

July 16, 2014

Dear baby boy, You are officially mobile. You’ve got your army crawl down, sometimes you even pop up to your knees. To my surprise, this milestone has increased your frustration. You are so close to being able to roam free, you can taste it. You can sit-up like a pro, but getting from crawling to […]

April 9, 2014

Dear baby boy, My favorite part of this month has been the singing. You started one day, sitting at the table while Jenny and I sang together. You just chimed in, letting out one long note after another. You grabbed your first toy, taking Sophie by the legs. You enjoy sitting in your Bumbo. We […]

March 14, 2014

Dear baby boy, You started this month off smiling a little and then a lot. You gurgle and giggle when your cheeks are tickled. We go back and forth, carrying on conversations of goos and gaas. You’ve found your fingers and occasionally try to fit your entire fist into your mouth. The changing table is […]

Dear baby boy, It has been a big month, a roller coaster of sleepless nights and great joys. You are looking around and alert. The sweetest gurgles and coos escape from your little lips. You really seem to be communicating. My favorite thing to do is dance with you around the living room as the […]

Grayson is now two months old and I just finished hanging the last pieces of art in his nursery. It is finally ready to show you all. I thought that I was going to have everything ready before we had our little man, but then he arrived four weeks early and my progress came to […]

{baby} the sound of snoring

January 28, 2014

{photo by Brooke Bryand} I have heard many people say that their favorite sound in the world is that of their child’s laughter. I haven’t had the chance to hear that yet, but think there is another contender. The sound of soft baby snoring. Maybe it is the promise that you yourself may also get […]

our birth story

January 13, 2014

It all kinda sorta started on a Sunday. With a month left before our baby boy was to arrive, Jeff and I made a last-minute, semi-crazy decision to buy a car. That fateful day we were making our final trips to dealerships before heading home to throw my momma a birthday dinner. Throughout the day […]
