    life: [noun] the period between birth and death of a person. that's what's going on over here. the everything in between. the breaths that are exclusively mine, the experiences only i can carry out, and the moments that were specifically created for me. this is my story.

happy 1st birthday.

  Wow … a year already under this sweet little man’s belt!  I can barely believe it as I type it – my baby is no longer in the how-may-months-is-he stage.  As much as

judah’s 1st b-day party.

Last week was one of the busiest weeks that I’ve lived in a very long time – hence the blogging interruption.  A course (Thursday & Friday-pms and Saturday-all day), other week-night

Maybe it’s because his first birthday is coming up, but for some reason I’ve been so sentimental when it comes to this sweet boy lately. As said by the most biased mama around, he has

ten & eleven months …

I’m finally getting to posting this!  Because these past two months have been pretty fast paced, I figured I’d just join them into a big post.  As of yesterday, Juju’s

life as a train.

Imagine. A train moving quickly in an open desert.  You’re riding horseback (or whatever vehicle you dream about!) alongside it, trying to catch up.  This train is your life.  You feel like

ch-ch-ch-changes.

A nearly 10 month-old, new house, busy business … it’s time to have another baby! Come November, we will no longer be a family of 3, but 4!  So many emotions to go along with the

nine months …

Ahhh … I can’t believe my baby is already 9 months old!  I remember thinking, “When he gets to nine months, all of these [initial] days are going to seem like eons ago.”

Not only have I moved out of my carrier car seat, I’ve moved on from playing in a 5′ diameter…the house is now my playground.  This new freedom of crawling and exploring has

seven months …

Well, Judah is now 7.5 months!  Here is his 7 month post…better late than never. Since my last update, we’ve had some pretty big changes over here.  Not only have I figured out

Weekend Naps … Matt’s got this rule for the weekends (the ones he isn’t working, at least).  His “rule” is that we must schedule enough time for a nap in between

Seeing as Juju will soon be 7 months old (January 13), I thought I’d better get this out there, even though it is so-very-late (though all pictures are from around December 13). I’m

goals and things.

With both Matt and I sick with a stomach bug, things have been pretty quiet over here the last few days.  Minus the Hatfield & McCoy marathon we had playing on the computer, there’s been no

After a busy few days – from our house to the grandparents’ houses and back again – I wish we could go back to capture ALL of Judah’s first Christmas on video!

Here are some (random) smatterings of what’s been going on over here … House for … SOLD! What a relief it is to have our flip-property sold!  After being on the market for almost 6

After taking a while to get the four month post out, here’s month number five … on time! Having five months under my belt, I’m pretty much independent … at least I like to

four months …

Took these shots around his actual 4 month “birthday”… finally getting to the posting part(!). Though teething has become my new norm, I still manage to bring a happy light

I’ve been meaning to post Judah’s 4-month pictures, but haven’t gotten to editing them yet (1st, 2nd, 3rd months here, here, and here).  Really, there is no huge reason I

Almost 2 weeks ago, I managed to mangle my left pointer finger in an electric hand blender … yea, not cool.  Fortunately, the closest medical clinic was down the hill and I was able to get in

We were out for a walk the other day.  The weather was perfect – sunny skies, warm breeze, fall cool crisp.  I had my camera and couldn’t wait to capture the beauty and colors.  I got

Because we were on vacation for Judah’s actual 3-month birthday, these photos were taken a few days later.  I just love this little boy to bits! As a three-month-old, if I had to name a

two months …

After we finished supper tonight, we quickly went out to the backyard to take a few 2-month-old shots.  Previous to these expressive faces (!) there were tears *mama has sad face* … and

one month …

I know this post is a little late (was planning on posting this July 13th!), but we have been super busy as of late:  . My girlfriend is getting married next weekend, and I am trying to

It’s been so long since I’ve had (what feels like) a chunk of time to be able to write.  Friday marked my boy’s 1 month birthday.  Yes, 1 FULL month ago from when he first debuted

I am so proud to finally announce it on this blog of mine … our lil man is HERE!!  The last stretch of waiting for him seemed like it would never end.  Yet, here we are, with his 4 week
