Cassie is Two Months Old!

Christmas Day was also Cassie’s two month “birthday.” I’ll write about her first Christmas (and Jackson’s 6th) tomorrow, but I wanted to post her two month photo and update tonight. We took her to the doctor on Wednesday. She is 11 pounds, 5 ounces and 23 inches long. That puts her in the 25th to … Continue reading

Quick Update

Jack had his 3 year old well visit (no shots of course) last week. He’s 35 1/2 inches tall and weighs 32 pounds. I almost can’t carry him anymore!

New Year’s 2009 Update

  Jack will be THREE years old next month! Our little baby is now a big boy. Jack is very excited about turning 3, and very much wants a birthday party. “Happy Birthday” is one of his favorite songs.  Jack had a good Christmas. This year, he knew to be excited. He would ask everyday … Continue reading

September Web Site Update

As usual, Jack is surpassing the milestones of other kids his age. This September, Jack will be 32 months old. (Soon, we can stop keeping track of months. Woo hoo!) In terms of milestones, he’s at about a  4 year level in his language, cognitive, social, and emotional milestones. He’s about average in his physical … Continue reading

Nine Months

At 9 months, Jack is meeting pretty much all of the milestones listed in What to Expect the First Year. He’s figured out the “If I drop it, it still exists and Mommy and Daddy will pick it up for me” game. He does not crawl, but he does creep, schooch, and roll himself all … Continue reading

Being a Mommy

Tonight, Jack fell asleep while I was feeding him, and when I went to put him into bed, he opened his little eyes and reached out for mommy. And then I got to rock him and sing to him and hold him close while he went back to sleep. That felt really good. I always … Continue reading

Catching Up

I am currently catching up on email from April. I have decided to place anything of interest in this one post, then I do not have to write email to everyone I know. I’m not lazy, I’m just a person who can only get things done when the baby is asleep. People ask about work, … Continue reading

All Purpose Update

I never explained where “I’m the Mommy” came from. In the TV show “Mad About You” Jaime (Helen Hunt) has interviewed for a job, and somehow Paul (Paul Reiser) runs into the hiring manager, sees his family picture and tells the guy that he and Jamie are “trying.” Jamie finds out and is pissed when … Continue reading

Five Months

So much time has gone by so fast, and though he may still seem like a little baby to y’all, to us he’s growing to be such a big boy! Jack is 12 lbs. 6 oz. and is cuter and cuter everyday. He’s also crankier and crankier — not taking naps will do that to … Continue reading


Forgive me! I’ve been so busy listening to the swing that I completely forgot to write about our first post-placement visit from the social worker. Last Tuesday, the 4th, a social worker from The Family Network came to our house. Our house was miraculously clean, though not OCD so, mostly thanks to Max. (I did … Continue reading
