At this point, I am like 7 months behind. yay. So last I posted, I was enjoying going through our lovely Florida … Continue Reading →

New Smyrna Beach – Day 6 – June 2019

Day 6 in New Smyrna Beach! A sleepy baby: A Minnie swimsuit! Last year Elena would go to whomever wanted to hold her, no problem. But this year, it was Stranger Danger all the way. Unless I wasn’t there. But if I was… She let Aunt Jan hold her in the water for a little bit. But then nope, she … Continue Reading →

New Smyrna Beach – Day 5 – June 2019

New Smyrna Beach – June 2019 – Day 3

Here’s Day Three in New Smyrna Beach! Our sleeping girl. I like that she often sleeps like this! Eager to get outside! Also, this bathing suit is easily one of my favs. We went out for a morning walk: And picked up some shells: Time for breakfast! This little hassock that was in the condo was perfectly sized for her! … Continue Reading →

New Smyrna Beach – June 2019 – Day 1

In June we had our annual family beach vacation in New Smyrna Beach. These beach posts are going to be heavy on baby pics. #warning #sorrynotsorry Our flight down was easy (and not horribly delayed, thankfully). Elena had a bottle and watched Coco (on silent) on the iPad. We stayed at this really cool B&B in Titusville called Casa Coquina … Continue Reading →


Florida video wrap-up

I strung together a bunch of the little snippets of video we took of Elena in Florida this summer, so if you want to know what it looks like for a phone, when a baby tries to eat it, or want to see Elena playing peek-a-boo, trying to crawl, or eating a nectarine, this is for you!


Animal Kingdom – June 2018

We had one last day of vacation, so we did a day of Disney, and picked Animal Kingdom, partly so we’d have more time to explore Pandora. Also partly because it’s the most shaded park. And thirdly because I manage to snag fast passes for the boat ride, not something we wanted to wait on a line for. I enjoyed … Continue Reading →
