Charlie's 26 Month Update

Charlie turned 26 months old last week! Month 25 was a big month language-wise (month 24 wasn't nearly as big), and I think it's safe to say that we're now having conversations with Charlie. Once your child really starts talking, it feels like they hit mini milestones every day because of all the new things [...]

25 Month Update

Charlie turned 25 months old last week! (I've stopped using months when I tell people Charlie's age since he's 2, but for the sake of these updates I'll use months.)

Happy Halloween!

I love Halloween costumes that are a little bit different.  For example, one year I dressed in all gold, carried a pickaxe, and a burlap sack full of gold nuggets. What was I?  A gold digger of course! This year we had a little too much going on with baby Olive's early arrival, so I [...]


22 Month Update

Two weeks ago we took Charlie apple picking at Silverman's Farm in Connecticut.  It's a wonderful family friendly farm with tractor rides, an orchard (with low hanging apples perfect for toddlers), a pumpkin patch, a petting zoo, and a playground.  I knew this was going to be our last adventure before having Olive, so I [...]
