My Favorite Person is HH

there’s no denying it! HH has completely taken up my entire heart.  As I see a new milestone being reached e v e r y single d a y, I forget how little he really is. How young. How tender. How innocent. How pure.

He acts much older than his age, and I treat him as if we are equals, not like he is a baby.

I Like Good Books + I Can Not Lie


Henry is a big bookworm!  He is always going straight for the books and leafing through them to look at the pictures. He sometimes babbles while evaluating each page, which makes it seem like he is reading.

It is beyond adorable.

We’ve started going to the library each week to stock up on more books to keep him interested.

One observation I’ve made is that the books he grabs from his room are the ones I read to him at night when he was a few months old.

Let me be honest, reading to a newborn/infant seems pointless when you are doing it because they just kind of lay there while you listen to your own voice and you feel absolutely ridiculous. BUT, I did it anyway and am now reaping the benefits – yes, several months later.

Grab the books. Get cozy. And read. read. read.


This Little {seven.month.old) Turkey

This little turkey is seven months today!

IMG_2163Everyday I thank my lucky stars for him. He continues to be the best baby {for us}.  Honestly, if I were to “design” my baby and pick and choose his characteristics, features, quirks, personality, etc, HE is it!

Milestones: crawling, sitting up, pulling up, taking steps, babbling, eating solids + purees, and being awesome, in general!


Because we’ve been living between SF and DC for the past few months, we missed Henry’s six month wellness check so went today and got his measurements.

Our little coo coo bird is 27 inches long (39.74% percentile for his age) and 17 lbs 5 oz. (31.04% percentile for his age). BUT…he has a 46.8 cm head circumference, which puts him in the 99% for his age.

Because of this, I think it is such an accomplishment that he is able to move as much as he is due to the big noggin’ he’s carrying around on those petite little shoulders.

Just look at those sweet, little shoulders.IMG_2168 IMG_2178
