3 years old today. WOW. It feels like we blinked and you turned into a handsome young boy! You love running and playing, cooking, drawing and coloring, blowing bubbles, Paw Patrol, riding your scooter, snuggling with Mama and always trying to get as many stories as possible before going to bed. You are SO helpful [...]
For two whole months, Avery has been asking for a kitchen! Every time we looked at the Target toy catalog, he always points to the kitchen or some kind of kitchen supplies. We go on Amazon to look at kitchen designs as well as watch videos of kids playing kitchen on YouTube! We keep saying [...]
Another successful year of visiting Santa Claus with no tears! So glad that Avery and Santa got to chat a bit and walked away with a big Santa hug!
This weekend was a wild one! We celebrated Avery’s 2nd birthday with a bright and bold Party Animal zoo celebration! It was a roarin’ good time!! I wanted the overall “feel” of the party to be bright, bold, loud and fun! I imagined what it would be like if a bunch of animals at the [...]
Today our little boy turns 2!!! To celebrate, we visited the city’s most famous landmark: the 184 meter high, newly renovated Space Needle! One of the most unique and remarkable feature of the renovation is the sheer amount of glass! The new observation deck offer glass benches called “Skyrisers” where visitors can lean back and [...]
I can’t believe how fast time has gone by. I still remember the blog post I did announcing his arrival (check it out here for some throwback photos). It has been the most amazing two years watching him grow, learn new things, and bring so much love and happiness into my life. Here’s a letter [...]
We got lucky this time, I thought for sure he was going to cry! My trick was giving Santa the candy cane and told him to hand it to Avery, instead of just trying to plop Avery on his lap! We also got to take some shots of Avery on the rocking horse and he [...]
A few weeks ago, I posted a photo of Avery on Instagram and someone commented on how much they like the mullet he had going on! I thought it was the funniest thing and then started to wonder…maybe it’s time to say goodbye to the baby mullet and the pieces of hair growing sparsely around [...]
Can you believe this little bunny is 1? Me either. He is the cutest, silliest, sweetest tiny person I’ve ever known, and it amazes me daily that he is mine. He turned 1 on Sunday (1 week ago) and it was fun to celebrate as it was also Easter Sunday (hence the party theme) and [...]
Dear Avery, my little love, I can’t believe it’s been a year already. Everyone says how quickly the first year flies by and, boy, are they right. And, Avery, I think we made it through with flying colors. When you came into this world at 5:43 PM on Saturday, April 1st 2017, I was so [...]
As I was making my way home for lunch (aka pump milk), I was handed a daffodil to celebrate the first day of spring. Apparently each year, Pike Place Market volunteers and staff pass out 10,000 daffodils around downtown Seattle! So here’s to you Spring, Welcome! "Spring is nature's way of saying, 'Let's party.’” -Robin [...]
Santa photos are a classic and I can't wait to create this tradition with Avery!
