A couple days ago, I pulled down some of Bean’s old baby things and set them in the New Guy’s room.  I’m still a long way away from putting together the nursery, but it was nice to start corralling all this stuff into one place.

Then a few hours later, I looked in the nursery to discover this:


Which instantly made me remember this:


And this:


And this one:


And this hoody:


And then I peaked back into the nursery and I saw this:


And this:


And this little bum:


And that made me think about this:


And this:


And this hair:


And then I thought of this:


And of them:


And then I had to close the nursery door or else I would spend the next five months sitting in there.

    Those Bumbo pictures made me smile! My daughter is 2 and she still sits in her Bumbo chair (she’s super petite). Her brother is six months and is so big that he already gets stuck in the Bumbo! You’ll love having two kids to make memories with! I bet Bean will be a wonderful big brother!

  8. Very cute! He has grown up so nicely!

  9. It is absolutely criminal that they are babies for such a short, short time and then are teenagers for freakin’ years!

    Thank you for sharing your experience. We are in our mid-20s, married with a one year old. I have to say that although I love my little family, I am finding it all a little bit lonely. All of my girlfriends are in grad school and traveling. The only 20-something moms I know got pregnant accidentally. Oh, by the way, we live in a Boston suburb, and I know the Northeast has an even later trend for starting a family than other parts of the country. I sometimes wonder if we should pack up and move South – find somewhere that we fit in. Anyway, just a million thank you’s for your blog. Holler back if you have a minute.

    Tears! This is adorable! Look at that dark hair! 🙂
