Ibbie :: 1 Year

The goose is one. Holy moly. Our days are better because she is in them! Ibbie is an eight-toothed, walking, talking smile. She's so easy going. Ib loves to play with other kids, younger or older. She's a good eater and good relaxer. No one can stop her from getting comfortable. Ibbie signs a bit and has a phenomenal slow nod for "yes."

She wakes up once or twice a night but we're working on it. She's also still nursing but we're working on weaning. She didn't take to cows milk so we're cutting it with goat's milk in an effort to ease the transition.

We're so delighted to celebrate this little one that we're stretching her birthday festivities out for a couple of weeks.

End of Summer

This year we were fortunate to close out summer surrounded by family. At the beach. And eating crabs.

Memphis for a Minute

A few weeks ago, we headed to Memphis for the weekend. The timing of our trip was set around around a wedding Peter and I and Ellie's arrival! We rented an awesome airbnb in Midtown, right around the corner from our old house. It was wonderful to back. And odd, a really unusual feeling.  Between hanging out with the Swens and going to our old church, it was as though we could have auto-piloted right back to our old life.
