Rainy Day

“I had you.  Right there with me.  I had you living in my life and I was alive.”

-Francesca Lia Block

I’m home sick on this rainy Friday and have been looking at pictures of Everly from the early days and getting sentimental.  One day she was a tiny newborn, swaddled and cooing around the world that she would soon know, and with the blink of an eye, here we are as she is about to turn 8 months old. Ev’s free-spirited personality has continued to blossom and her body now moves with purpose as she gets closer and closer to crawling each passing day.

To all the Mamas, Daddys, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and those who have little ones in your life, hold them closer today, kiss them extra, and cherish every waking moment that you are blessed to have with them.


Seven. Months. Old.

The luck of the Irish...

Having a 7-month old is so much fun!  They really weren’t lying when they told me it just keeps getting better.  Everly’s development is astounding and her personality continues to shine through and reinforce our belief that she is just something else.  Here’s an update on what’s new these days…

Teeth: Holy chompers.  Evy’s got EIGHT teeth coming in that we can count.  Her two front teeth, two more coming in on each side on top, and four on the bottom.  She loves when we brush her teeth in the morning and at night and thinks it is the funniest thing in the world.

She’s quite the looker: Someone has her Mama’s peepers!  (Thank God she has something of mine!) She wins us over with those big blue eyes every time.  Her brown hair is growing in thicker each day, and we’re starting to notice some lighter pieces and sometimes even a glimpse of red in the sun.

Movin’ & Shakin: This baby is ready to crawl. We think that she is physically capable of it, but hasn’t quite figured out the trick. Which is probably a good thing considering her Mama & Pops STILL have not baby-proofed the house.

Food & Other Tasty Things: What’s not to love? Clearly nothing as Everly has an appetite for nearly everything we put in front of her. Spinach, garbanzo beans, rutabaga, blueberries – put it in front of her and she will show you how to put it down!

Evy LOVES: Animals (We can’t wait to visit the ZOO), giving her Pup Pups open mouth kisses (Ick, this makes your Mama frown), playing horsey with Daddy (her face lights up when she gets to bounce up and down on Papa’s knees), sunshine, fresh air, and whenever company comes over.

We’re looking forward to: taking Everly exploring with us when the weather is warmer, putting her in pretty dresses this Spring, showing her the ocean this Summer, and just the thought of knowing that we get to expose her to so many new things as she grows.

Cute Picture of the Day

everly graceGood morning & Happy Saturday to you!

We’re still in PJ’s at the Buehler casa, playing with toys, pups, and loving the sound  of Evy’s belly laughs and Boston Terrier snarls echoing through our house.  We’re excited to be heading out to a playdate with our friends Melissa & Jordan today and later tonight it’s a much-needed date night for Mom and Dad.  Hope you enjoy your day – we sure will!
