Summer Nights

As much as I love my fall, there are few things better in life than summer nights at the beach with the family. Growing up in a coastal town, our local beach has always held a special place in our heart. And while it took me some time to find a love for the sand- I was not a fan as a kiddo- I can now think of no better way to spend a summer sunset than together by the water.

Four years ago today, at 3:06 am, we met your for the very first time.

Maybe met is the wrong word. Because we knew you well before then.

For so long before that day, we knew you were ours. You filled our dreams with hope for a family; one that had to include you- your spirit, your heart, your love of life and happiness and us.

Big Sister

When I first announced when we were pregnant, one of the first questions I was asked was: Does Maddie know?? 

The reality is, I think she knew before I did. Weeks before I took a test, I remember her asking me what was in my belly. I never thought anything of it, but in hindsight it still gives me goosebumps.

Spring Fever with Toucca Kids

Is it just me, or are these glimpses into spring pretty much everything right now? We've had a few of them recently here in Connecticut, and they're just what I need to get me through the last leg of the winter. The temperatures have been somewhat all over the place- and I'm pretty sure wearing a dress without tights for a hot minute last week was pretty confusing for our girl- but as long as that sunshine keeps peeking through, I'm all set.

Tutus + Teepees

Sometime in the last few months this car, truck and spiderman-loving tom-girl of ours decided to change her tune. Sure, she'll still get excited when she hears an airplane flying by, but recently her interest have taken a turn for the girly. Ever since Nana bought MM her first fairy costume, she's been addicted to all the tulle.

Over the weekend we celebrated our girl's second birthday. And I just can't stop asking myself: but really, where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday we were assembling layers of her smash cake, wondering how our newborn babe had grown up so fast. And it just doesn't slow down.

Snack and Discover

The days are long, but the years are short.

That's for certain.

Sleepless nights with an infant transform into nonstop days with a toddler (or two). All in an instant. After almost two years with my girl, its about the one thing I know for sure.  And throughout the last twenty-one months, I've asked myself time and time again "where did the time go?"

Little Lounger

If you followed along way-back-when, then you know that it was a struggle finding a sleep situation that worked for us when we first brought our little girl home. Being that she was an itty bitty little thing, the thought of her in another room in a big {albeit comfy} crib made me cringe a little.

Spring Edit

Because the birds have been chirping and the skies have been blue, I've been looking towards springtime now more than ever.  MM has been living in her Hunter Boots {here}, and I can't wait to dress her up in all things seersucker and floral in the upcoming months.
