We are in the double digits now…eek! Oh it makes me so happy to see Casen growing and doing new things. My baby is not so little anymore, in a few months we will be celebrating his first birthday!
Case is quite the little mover. Getting a bit harder to keep an eye on…usually you can find him behind the couch or in the bathroom. He tried to wash the shower curtain in the toilet this week. I think he dreams of being big so he can do all the things Jax does. Like running! He loves his brother. One of these days they will be in the living room wrestling, knocking each others teeth out. (That day can take its sweet ol time). Speaking of teeth. Some newbies came in…crooked as ever, but hoping they straighten out.
This past month he has learned to clap! It is the cutest. Catch it over on vine…and follow me! (I got a new phone so my video quality isn’t so shitty anymore).
Just had to share this adorable nursery with you. Mom, Katie is a photographer (she took our family photos) and dad is a designer, so you know they’d put together something amazing for their firstborn. Baby Fox is the cutest! Read what they say about the space…
When we moved into our house about a year and a half ago, we originally envisioned the second bedroom as a guest room. Unfortunately it became a space that we started using for additional storage for things we weren’t sure what to do with. The previous owner had painted the ceiling a very dark navy blue and I couldn’t stand it so we ended up just keeping the door closed pretty much all the time. When we found out we were having a baby we finally had a reason to clear it out do something with it. The ceiling was such a pain to paint over, but when it was done it looked so much better!
We decided on a vintage boy scouting/exploring theme for the room and created a moodboard to go off of. We didn’t want to go overboard with vintage pieces (plus we wanted a safe and structurally sound crib), so we decided to get our main pieces of furniture in white to keep the room feeling fresh, while filling it in with vintage details.
Our favorite part of the room is the globe mobile. When it arrived in the mail we were surprised at the size of it (pictured it to be MUCH smaller) and was nervous that it was too big. But now we love it and Fox does too! He just lays in his crib and smiles up at it. We are proud of the room and look forward to the potential it holds for Fox as he grows!

Oh boy…Casen definitely hit a growth spurt this past month. Already trying to crawl…scootin’ backwards and getting up on his knees. Ahh! Too much! And of course, saying ‘dadadadada’ all day long. I keep telling myself that he only said ‘dada’ first because he just misses his dad so much during the day. (ha! okay maybe I’m just a little jealous). I really thought he was going to stay a baby forever, but I am so curious of all the new things he will do, how he will sound when he talks, what his hair will look like when it actually grows…the first year is the best!
Doctor said at his six month checkup that I was doing a great job. That pretty much made my day. Sometimes it just blows my mind that I am responsible for him, what he eats, what he learns…I don’t even know if that make sense but I just can’t explain the feeling. I feel so blessed to be a mom. And Case makes it so easy, so thankful.
We just had our family photos taken last week and he was such a good boy. Sat up by himself and smiled. Those big brown eyes were just glowing as usual. Happiest baby ever. Although, I bet he could win the world record for most spit ups in an hour. Ha!
Two great things you can give your children: one is roots, the other is wings.
I wish you could stay little forever. You are so perfect. Every morning you wake up happy. Every day you make me smile. Every night you sleep like a little angel. God is so good.
You love when your brother blows bubbles on your tummy…your little giggles are contagious. And those big brown eyes look just like your daddy’s.
I am so proud. You can sit up all by yourself and you are eating veggies like a champ…even though green beans aren’t near as yummy as squash.
I love you more than all the stars in the sky!
