Here’s the video of the big reveal: If you’re unable to view the video above, please click here to view on YouTube. Last year, hot roommate Mike helped me put together Levi’s IKEA KURA loft bed.

First Snowman 2013

It’s December now, and we had our first big snowfall this winter earlier this week. As soon as I got home from work on Monday, Levi & I got our winter gear on and headed outside to build a snowman. Not just any snowman, of course. His very first snowman. I know, I should have raked the leaves in the yard weeks ago, but I never got around to it. I found out the hard way what that means – {Read More}

Bonding over technology: Teaching dad how the tablet works #VZWVoices #Mom

I’m currently participating in the Verizon Moms Voices blogging program. I received a complimentary device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions. Jason (Levi’s dad) was over the other day and Levi taught him how to use apps on my tablet. It might have been one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. Part of the reason it was so adorable is because Levi totally has this tablet thing figured out. I have all of his {Read More}

Mykl Milestone: Meeting His Kids

Today’s a big day – Levi and I are meeting Mykl’s kids for the first time tonight. I’m excited and a little bit nervous. Not because I’m afraid they won’t like me or anything like that, but because it signifies a really big milestone in our relationship. Meeting your partner’s kids is a pretty big deal in my book. Mykl has known Levi for quite a while now, so our relationship has been a bit unbalanced in that respect. It {Read More}

Mr Grey: Unmasked

You guys asked for it, so I suppose I should finally reveal who this mysterious Mr. Grey guy is that I’ve been dating. He’s the guy that leaves me surprise post-it notes in my fridge. He makes me mix tapes and writes messages in the sand. And even lets me blog about him under his real name (he’s not really a stalker, btw.) That’s right, I’ve shared photos of Mr Grey before, well, before things were serious between us. We’ve {Read More}

Levi Update – Almost 9 Months!

I haven’t been posting about Levi much lately. It’s not because I don’t want to. Sometimes I worry that people will be like, oh, she’s showing off her kid. Again. But seriously? He’s Mr. Awesome Baby. And he deserves a little bit of attention. Over Easter my awesome little man surprised us. We were at my in-laws, and suddenly Jason called me from the other room. This is what Levi was doing: The reason we were so surprised is because {Read More}

Levi’s big week!

This past week or so has been busy for Levi. Last Monday (Dec 20th), he went in for his 4-month checkup. My little man is up to 12 lbs, 10 oz!! He’s only in the 5th percentile for weight, but he’s still gaining and is very proportionate, so his pediatrician is happy with his growth. Thursday he officially turned 4 months old. Hard to believe my baby is already four months! One of the things the pediatrician suggested was starting {Read More}
