Hello again and some good news!

remember us?! it's been a super long time since i've written anything. life is crazy. like more crazy than i could have ever imagined. claire is going to be 1 in less than two weeks and work and my college courses. ay yi yi!

claire is walking and talking and doing all these wonderfully awesome things that blow my mind each day. she knows 8 signs, says 8 words. signing really has fallen by the wayside since a lot of the signs i taught her were basic communication words than she can speak now.

claire is super de duper tiny. people are always shocked when i tell them how old she is. she's still not 17 pounds and still wears mostly 3-6 month clothes. she is starting to fit into her 6-12 month clothes... it's really hit and miss though.

we are planning a massive birthday bash. complete with a white tent, cotton candy machine, and other super amazing goodies! we figured we would go all out since this was going to be her only birthday party as an only child... yeah you just read that right. Claire's going to be a big sister!
her baby brother or sister is due in april and we are over-the-moon excited! we started trying and i just assumed it would take us a while since i was still breastfeeding... two months after my cycle started... BOOM!! we really wanted a spring baby and God answered our prayers. i'm ten weeks today :) 

i don't know if i'm going to do weekly posts, mostly because i just don't have the time, but i am going to make it a priority to write something to this sweet lil babe growing inside me.

until next time, i can't wait to start posting again and look forward to catching up with all of you!!!


  1. Erikka! Congratulations! That is really exciting that another baby is on the way!

    I was just thinking about you today and the fact that we are about to have 1 year olds! Can't get over it! Summer is really tiny too, just 17 pounds! Nothing wrong with petite girls!

    Glad you guys are doing great!

    1. Thanks so so much Kate!

      i think about you when I cook. Maybe because of your Foodie Friday post?! I cannot believe how quickly the year went and how much our life has changed. Really?! That's crazy that they are about the same weight! Gotta love these teeny tiny girls.

      Thanks for your kind words, as always :)

  2. glad to see one of us is back on the board! you still have my oldy moldy button on here! LOL

    1. Not anymore! I updated it.

      See?! ------->

    Congrats on the baby! Kennedy is tiny, too. She was 17.8 pounds at her 12 month appointment, but she eats great so they're not worried. We just have some skinny babies :)


share some love!
