Lucy Kaye: A Birth Story

This day, one year ago, Chase and I became parents.  I can’t say the birth story is very exciting or dramatic but it was just perfect.  Here is our tale of how we became a family of 3!   The evening before, I had been experiencing some prelabor twinges, so we went for a walk in the park hoping to speed things along.  I woke up at 3 in the morning and could tell it was the day!  Chase and I timed the contractions at home for the next few hours- by 5 am,  ...

A Little Lambie for Lucy

As they are for most children, Easter baskets were always such a fun tradition at our house.  I still associate the Starburst jellybeans with said tradition, and my family still jokes about a little stuffed toy that would say “Happy Easter!” in the most annoying, obnoxious voice us siblings got one of the years.  I realize Lucy will not remember this first Easter, so I’m not going to pretend I went all out or anything.  But I did find a precious little  ...

The Important Things in Life

Baby’s First Christmas

Our crazy winter weather this past week has made it seem like we are still on Christmas break. So I figured I may as well share some pictures from Lucy’s first Christmas! Her favorite present was wrapping paper and the balloon her Oma gave her; Everything else was pretty second-rate.

8 Months

Our little Lucy is somehow 8 months old now. I looked at the calendar and realized I was two days past the 27th which gave me quite a bit of mom-guilt for letting that special day pass by.  Aside from the usual nitty-gritty, HARD WORK that any baby normally is, Lucy has been SO much fun lately.  She’s waving, babbling away, singing, eating lots and lots of real food, and smiling from ear to ear.  She still doesn’t love green beans (who does?!) but the girl can  ...
