March 2017, Sam at 9 Months Old

Once again, I have so much catching up to do here! These are busy times, for sure. The day Sam turned nine months old, March 6th, I was in the middle of a 5-day stretch off work. Woo hoo!! Sam was feeding himself: We went to The Children’s Gym with friends. Now I’m thinking about… Continue reading March 2017, Sam at 9 Months Old

Ari at 23 Months Old (and A Little Beyond) and the Garden in May

Time for a big retrospective of the past month, and a description of Ari as he approaches his second birthday! In early May, we went to the Children’s Museum, just the two of us. He pushed a cart around the grocery store and tried to make off with all the corn and plums: But he… Continue reading Ari at 23 Months Old (and A Little Beyond) and the Garden in May

Another (sleep-deprived) week and a half in the life of Ari! And now he’s 9 months old!

Whew! It feels like more than a week and a half since my last post. Maybe that’s because we’ve been having a bad time with sleep! I’ve started to think that Ari might be getting too old to be waking up and nursing every few hours every night. Getting five uninterrupted hours of sleep in… Continue reading Another (sleep-deprived) week and a half in the life of Ari! And now he’s 9 months old!
