Marlo at 13 Months

At thirteen months you started growing 3 top teeth at the same time! You’ve been a bit crabbier than normal but that’s probably the reason. You like to feed yourself and slap the spoon away when I aim it toward your mouth. So I give it to you and you’re excited to try it yourself. read more »

Cabin 2014

We had a couple of firsts at the cabin this year. First, Marlo sat in sand and decided you must eat what you sit on. She at sand and loved it. Next, since I was with the previous generation (re: my in-laws and their friends) they were making manhattans. And since I’m on a Mad read more »
