Is how Scott pronounces the words “Christmas tree”.  He loves the tree and ornaments – he’s “only” destroyed two so far – and has become very attached to a garbage truck ornament given to him by my parents.  Sometime soon Christmas tree is going to have to disappear in the middle of the night with promises […]


Merry Christmas

Our holiday letter for the year: Dear friends and family, This has been a fun holiday season for our family because Scott is finally starting to “get” Christmas. At least he’s figured out that every once in a while, packages appear under the Christmas tree and – best of all – some of them contain […]


Family photos

As part of the deal when we bought Will’s newborn photos, we were enrolled in a program where a photographer would come out to our house 4 times in the next 2 years to take pictures. I really wanted to get some good “family of 4″ /2-year-old Scott/ newborn Will” shots. Bonus points if they […]


Baby Will 1 month

by Chelsea Myers on December 15, 2014


Loving the lizard face and all the funny newborn noises: Baby Will is growing like a weed.  He’s too big for newborn sizes (not that we had many, but there were some left over from Scott) and even some 0-3 month size onesies won’t fit for long. Sleeping and eating continue to go pretty well. […]

From a warm loaf of bread (my new favorite description of a newborn) to a non-stop running, playing machine: 2012- 2013- 2014-   I hardly know where to begin.  Every day I continue to be amazed that I’m blessed to be the mom of such a beautiful, smart […]

Baby Will – 3 weeks old

by Chelsea Myers on December 5, 2014


As Will continues to grow and plump up, he looks more and more like a little person and less like an little alien lizard (though he still makes all the great little alien lizard faces). His cheeks are fatter, which make his nose look less broad, and when his hair gets just the right light […]

Here we are, wedged between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  For as fast as the weeks have flown by since my last “state of everything” post, much has happened. Most notably, we had a baby. Second most notably, I’ve been home with Scott (with lots of help) for the past month.  Considering I was only home with […]
