Beckett :: Three Months

Our boy is 3 months old today!
This past month has been so much fun. About two or three weeks ago, Beck really started cooing and talking to us a TON! He wakes up so happy and talkative each day and really gets chatty when he's getting his diaper changed or about halfway through a nursing session. It's so sweet. He'll stop once he's eaten some, look up at me and give a big grin and start cooing at me. Melts my heart every time!
Brother hates tummy time, but has a very strong neck, just like his sister did. He still loves to be swaddled and I continue to be his most favorite person in the world. :) I definitely think his eyes will end up brown, which I love. We'll see about his hair! I love it dark, but wouldn't be surprised if it lightens up. This baby is just the sweetest thing in the world. He is so content to hang out and watch his sister play. He mainly only cries when he's hungry and tired. It's so sad and pitiful when he gets worked up. We try not to laugh!
this is my serious face.
 We feel so blessed by this boy and can't imagine our family without him. And is it just me, or is soooo handsome??? :)
We love you to the moon and back Beckett Boy!

First Day of Preschool

So this happened yesterday. I still can't really believe it, but as expected, my girl did great. No tears, no fuss, no real apprehension. Just pure excitement. She marched her little self right in there and hardly looked back.

Cue mama's tears.

Really though, I knew she would do great. Evie is so independent and social and loves basically all school has to offer her. :) I'm so so glad. I hope she always loves learning and reading and is excited to go to school. I am very pleased with and thankful for the program she's in and know she'll grow so much this year. But it's always hard to hand over your child to someone else's care. I was very ready to pick her up and hear all about her day!

My baby girl is growing up... I keep telling her not too, but she doesn't seem to be listening!

Beckett :: Two Months

This big guy is 2 months old!
He has changed sooo much in the past month. I feel like that tiny, delicate newborn-ness is already starting to wear off. Sniff sniff. I think it's because he's such a big eater and is filling out nicely. I stinking love him.
Beck continues to be his daddy's little doppelganger. It amazes me sometimes. He just looks like a little man! In the past week and a half he has really started focusing in on us, tracking me across the room and hamming it up. We can get smiles pretty easily and I can't wait until I hear those first sweet little laughs. He is such a doll!
And as much as he looks like daddy, he looooves his mama. :) I'm not complaining.
This weekend we tried a bottle for the first time and he did great! Nothing like his sister (who straight up boycotted). I think it's because he takes a paci. And he just likes to eat.
His 2 month appointment is tomorrow, so I'll update his stats after that. Can't wait to see how much he's grown! He seems long to me and he has most definitely been gaining weight like a champ. I've already had to put away the newborn sleepers.

 We love you little buddy, and couldn't imagine our family without you!

Evie's Big Girl Room {A Gallery Wall}

Progress on Evie's room has been slow going. I have had ideas and plans since we moved in (last August!!), but then life happens and projects take time and things cost money and you get knocked up and your buddy craigslist forsakes you. Sigh.

But some progress has definitely been made, so I thought I would share a bit today. Is anyone even still reading this little blog?? I know I've been absent!

Here is the original amateur inspiration board I put together for her room:

I've stayed pretty true to the colors and feel of the board. Using that floral fabric to make her curtains definitely helped. I love how fun it is.
I actually had another gallery wall up across the room, above her dresser, for a while. But then I decided to hang a mirror over there instead. Not long after, I came across this awesome pic on Pinterest and fell in love. I think it's so cool and different than your typical gallery, and I love how they went all the way up to the ceiling. I would need to gather some more art to truly replicate it, but I'm loving things so far!  
Everything up there is a diy project of some kind... framed gift wrap, a diy mirror made from a charger, a framed brass butterfly (flea market find), some original art, etc. I just finished the two watercolors (in the gold frames) and I'm not totally satisfied with them, but I needed to get something up! So those will likely change, and I may add a few other tiny pieces to fill things in.
This Shakespeare quote is puuuuuurfect for my girl. :)

Hopefully I'll have more to share of her room soon!
