Nine months

This past week, Akira turned 9 months old. It’s unbelievable how fast his first year is going and even more insane to realize that he’s been around on the outside for as long as he was on the inside. With … Continue reading

Can’t stop, won’t stop growing

Oh, man. Could someone please tell me that this first year isn’t as hard as I believe it is sometimes? You’d think that because Akira is our second, we’d have this in the bag, but truth be told, we don’t. … Continue reading

Spring has sprung

Sunny, warmer days are upon us. With that comes the lush greenery that covers the entire city every year at this time. Of Atlanta’s many nicknames, my favorite might have to be “the city among the trees.” I moved to … Continue reading

Movin’ on up

Spring is just around the corner, and I am welcoming the days without coats, breezy nights and lots of outdoor time. Now that two (!!) of Akira’s teeth have finally surfaced, I’m hoping we can all have a little break … Continue reading

Off the charts

Pause the scene and rewind. Mind if we play it again and again? Put a piece of tape over fast-forward, though, because I don’t wanna miss this. Not this. I wanna remember your smile shining from your eyes, your skin … Continue reading

Let the exploring begin

Our little Graham turned 8 months old last week. He gets busier and busier every day, getting more and more interested in exploring his world. Whether he’s pulling all of the clothes out of the laundry basket or lifting up … Continue reading

Baby days gone by

Gone are the days of leaving Graham contentedly playing on the floor and knowing he’ll be in the same spot when I return. Even though he’s not crawling yet, our little one has discovered how to get around, and he … Continue reading

Not a newborn anymore

Well, I’m writing this as little Graham is sleeping soundly in his crib. I’m having a glass of wine worry free, sitting next to my husband, winding down the day. It’s amazing how quickly things can change. Less than two … Continue reading

Six weeks of summer: Week 4, a week away

During my summer break from work, I have been spending some quality time with my little man, and although I’m very grateful my profession allows this to happen, I forgot that I’m actually blessed for it. After speaking with friends about … Continue reading

Babyproofing

Knocking on 11 months—unbelievable—and the world, or at least our house, has definitely become her oyster. Despite her crazy method of locomotion, she’s fast and into everything. So cue the babyproofing, and quick. We need to lock this place up … Continue reading

Let the training begin

Our little guy has gone mobile. I don’t mean that he has a data plan or that we’ve downloaded his app. I mean that he can move himself around now. It’s not exactly crawling yet, but if you can imagine … Continue reading

The little things

I work from home as a writer and editor, and I have little pockets during the day to get stuff done. Otherwise, I’m burning the midnight oil. That means I count on naptime for our almost 10-month-old (!), so I … Continue reading

Scootchin’

Just last week, I wrote about how, at 9 months and change, our girl was showing no signs of mobility yet. Well, guess what? In a completely predictable turn of events, she figured out her very own method of locomotion, literally, … Continue reading

Sitting tight

My cousin’s baby started crawling at 5 months. Five. Months. He was walking before he turned 9 months, and now he’s a terrifying 11-month-old who can back his way off her bed and is way too interested in the stairs. And then … Continue reading

Tis’ the season to babyproof

Baby mobility is a funny thing. Andy and I loved watching Bea figure out how to push herself up and wiggle in tiny, uncoordinated scoots across the floor. However, this “bumbling” phase was short lived, and now she’s crawling all … Continue reading

Crawling, teething and travel—oh, my!

This has been one of those weeks. I feel like I need a sign to hang on our front door that reads “Welcome to Crazy Town,” just to give fair warning to anyone who drops by. (And maybe, if I … Continue reading

Cruisin’ and bruisin’

Rowan was on the verge of crawling for what seemed like forever. I offered him words of encouragement, but I didn’t push for it as vehemently as others might. I knew as soon as he was more mobile, it would … Continue reading

Mobility

Oliver finally started crawling. Sort of. Maybe. Possibly. I think so. Depending on who you ask, or how you define crawling, my baby is crawling. He pivots, half-rolls, reaches out, drags a few limbs, and somehow moves his body two … Continue reading

My son the athlete

At five and a half months old, little Oliver has become mobile.  While the little guy cannot yet crawl very far, he has begun rolling up and down our carpet. On one occasion, he rolled from his mother over to … Continue reading

Making progress

My wife and I have been joking that our baby is advanced. He tends to hit milestones early, and we have been quick to brag about it. He rolled over fairly early. After it happened, I called relatives, sent some … Continue reading

Walk this way

Ready or not While many babes begin walking by their first birthdays, it’s not uncommon for some tots to reach 14 or 15 months before giving it a go. Walking is all about confidence, and every child learns at her … Continue reading

On the move

Isaac is getting more mobile by the day. Back and forth around the living room he goes, usually after the basket that holds the toys more than the toys themselves. He will rise up on all fours and rock, but … Continue reading

Crawl, baby, crawl

You’ve been as busy as a bee since your infant’s birth, and as soon as your little one learns to crawl, you’ll have to pick up the pace even more. Once your baby starts moving, she’ll have loads of fun … Continue reading

Milestone markers

Head Control By the time your baby is 1 month old, she will likely be able to lift her head briefly to look around, but it may take until she is 3 to 4 months to have control of her … Continue reading
