A Covey Family Christmas


We remembered the cookies and milk for santa, the carrot for Rudolf, read the 'Night Before Christmas',
and (unlike last year) didn't put out the santa presents until christmas eve...









Hope you all had a wonderful holiday : )

One Month


Dear Emmitt,


It's hard to believe a month of you has already passed.
A whole 30 (31?) days of eat. sleep. poop.  Of tiny sleepers and tiny toes.
Of baby smells, squeaks, and that distinct newborn cry that is music to my ears.


You are so big already!
It amazes me how much you have grown, and how fleeting that itty-bitty newborn stage is...
And how much faster things seem to be going this time around.


Things aren't always easy, but the best things in life take work.
 You are worth every middle of the night minute, every hourly feeding, and every poopy diaper.



xo, mom.

Ernie's U-pick


The start of a new tradition.










Despite the fact that it was bitterly cold, Jake's nose was running like a facet,
Squish wasn't on the baby wearing train, and we picked the tree from the warmth of the car,
i imagine we'll be back next year : )


For now, we'll just kick back and bask in the glow....

Christmas Cookies with a Two Year Old


Perhaps i am getting a little ahead of myself here.
Or maybe i just need to accept the fact that i have a two year old boy,
i might just be barking up the wrong arts and crafts tree here...






He liked licking the sprinkles the best, but i promise we didn't give those ones away...
We did however manage to eat more than we gifted.

Christmas: 1 
 Me: 0

Keeping it real


How i want you to think it is:

{totally together}


How it really is:

{ Not actually quite so poised. Note the crooked baby and look of utter dismay. or is that exhaustion? }

If i pretend I've got it all together, maybe i actually will.
But hey, we're all still alive and i made it out of the house...  
So far so good!

Sleep Baby Sleep


I wish i could tell you that the rest of my life is as calm and peaceful as this little dude.
But that would be a big fat lie : )

Happy Friday!

The Little Gets Big

Jakie turns two.

My mind is totally blown that two whole years have passed since this little person came into my life
and swept me off my feet. Oh i love him so....

"Johnny Tractor!!!!"




It seems impossible now that i ever lived without him.

The cake was a screaming success, thanks to Emily for the idea that i totally stole : )
And as you can see, a much better reaction than last year.
( and last year part 2 )

Drumroll Please.....


Introducing.... Baby Boy Two!!!


We are so overwhelmed and excited, that we don't even have a name : )
Little Squish decided to show up a few days early, and much to Dr. Nails' dismay,
right when the santa clause parade was wreaking havoc on downtown traffic.
But that might be a story for another day....




Talk about punch - drunk love.  We're so there....
