“Adults are only kids grown up, anyway.”
- Walt Disney
At 13 months, our little guy is picking up on so many new things. From knowing the names of certain toys and stuffed animals, to picking items out of a collection of toys when you ask him, the development he’s going through is just so fast. And for a first time parent, it’s quite remarkable.

My sweetest little girl,
I have mixed emotions this week as you turn 2. I am excited because I see how much you’ve grown, and I know so many magical moments await you. I can’t wait to have conversations with you about life and answer all of your questions about hair, careers, clothes, and anything else you want to know. But, I must admit, I am kind of sad. You are growing up so fast and there are no longer any babies in my home. The baby days are gone.

Eight months has passed since I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy. It’s hard to believe that just eight short months ago I could hold him in my arms while he slept peacefully without making a soung. Now he’s on the move, chatting up a storm, and very rarely will fall asleep in my arms. It’s crazy how quickly these months go. Just as you begin to embrace a moment, it’s gone.
This month was full of milestones for Macks. He started crawling, pulling himself up, and two of his teeth popped through. With him on the move so much, it’s made it hard to get photos, but I managed to get a few and wanted to share my favorites.

I’ve never been super into babies. When I see a baby, I don’t squeal in delight or rush to hold it. I mean, they’re cute – they’re absolutely adorable – I just was never the kind of girl who had baby fever.
When my son was a baby, I kind of couldn’t wait for him to move on from that stage. I had a rough time adjusting to new motherhood, and I don’t think I fully grasped how fast it all goes. Now my youngest is a year and a half old (and my oldest is 3!) and I am wishing for time to slow down.

Is it just me, or does Halloween seem to be the craftiest holiday? I mean, every holiday makes for fun family crafts, but Halloween just has so many! And who can forget trick or treating, pumpkin carving, getting dressed up in costumes, and having themed parties?!
My family always had so much fun at Halloween — and now that I have two boys of my own, I am so excited to continue some of those traditions as well as start our own.
Here is a list of four family traditions I will be continuing with my little ones!
