2.5 year update

The days are long, but the years are short. Profoundly cliche but never more true than when caring for a 2 year old. Especially a 2 year old who takes his responsibility of living up to the “terrible two” moniker seriously. And with that, I give you Colin’s 2.5 year update. From the blue corner, […]


Baby Pencil’s 6 month update

It’s been half a year (unbelievable) since this little guy came into the world. From being someone who ignored children, to being terrified of giving birth, to having a terrible recovery, to postpartum depression… I’m finally at a wonderful place. Perhaps I’m here now because it’s the extreme opposite of everything I endured? Whatever the […]


Jaren’s 17 Month Update

Jaren is 17 months already!  I’ve long stopped counting weeks, and I’m even losing track of months now.  He’ll be 2 before I know it!  I already can’t believe it’s mid-2014. I feel like we just started the year, where did the time go? I used to think people were crazy when they told me […]

21 and 22 month update

As we rapidly approach his […]


Miss H: 23 Month Update

My oh my how the months are flying by! This past month has been slightly more challenging with Miss H getting sick with a terrible cold. However, we count our blessings that this was her first sickness of the winter season (and now it’s officially spring, so that’s exciting!). We juggled minimal sleep, an uncomfortable […]


Dear Juliet

Dear Juliet, Eight months in a blink of an eye.  Where does the time go?  Sometimes when I look at you I cant believe how big you are (even if you are still very little in size). Life is so different when you are the second child, I know. Mommy never gets to devote her […]


Miss H: 22 Month Update

I recently revealed Miss H’s new “big girl room.” Because it’s a lovely space with lots of natural light, we can finally take her monthly photos in her own room (instead of ours)! The fun keeps on rolling in the Hopscotch household these days. We love having family dinners together, with Miss H’s new room […]
