Wednesday by Leah: 20 Months

Hey, it’s me again! I’ve been busy cooking up an awesome new project around here, which I will reveal soon. I’ve taken most of my Jonah and parenting musings off-line lately in favor of more in-person communication with loved ones, and the time I do have to myself has been devoted to this new project …

Wednesday by Leah: 17 Months

Jonah is 17 months old today. He looks quite a bit different from his newborn self, and even from his 12 month self. I’m not sure how it’s possible, but I really think he gets even cuter each day. And he can definitely turn on the charm, ham it up, and then switch to his …

He’s started nursing way more frequently than he did when he was younger – he really just …

Wednesday by Leah: Swarmed

On Saturday night, Mark and I were supposed to go to a super awesome Halloween party. But first, he had an engagement shoot outdoors in the beautiful fall weather. I was looking forward to a fun night out. My parents were looking forward to a fun night with their grandson. And then my phone rang. …
