Night 2 of Operation: Pierce Sleeps at Night had me shaking my head at why I’d been getting up, feeding a baby, and putting him back into his bed again every 2 or so hours for 346 days. (Just for the record, I did that in my head. Then I got out a calculator, actually […]
Last night started Operation: Pierce Sleeps At Night. We broke away from Operation: Pierce Nurses All Night and went for Operation: Pierce Screams All Night. It was a really, really long night. Since Pierce shares a room with all of his siblings, I was afraid today was going to be nightmarish. When I asked Blaine […]
The conversations in the back of my van went something like this: “Why do boy Indians have long hair?” “Because they don’t have time to cut it.” “Charlotte, you’re a big baby. You don’t need toys in the van. You can play with them in Sunday school. Pierce is a little baby. He needs them […]
Pierce wanted to be in school this morning. Fourth grade math and learning to read provided him an adequate challenge, to be sure. Child genius? Maybe not. Something about eating the erasers doesn’t scream ready for school.

Pierce discovered throwing things down the wooden stairs (we have just five of them) was great fun and incredibly loud. After playing fetch with Ruby for many minutes, he made a grievous error in judgment and decided to throw himself down the stairs. Liberty was faster than Momma. She saved the day boy. Hooray for […]
He was being awfully quiet. He found the potato and onion bin. Good choice on the potato instead of the onion, little dude. Mmm, breakfast.
Night times are interesting around here lately. Temps are dropping in the night, Charlotte wakes up cold, climbs in bed with us, tosses, turns, kicks, kisses and giggles until I finally wake up enough to realize what’s going on. Put Charlotte back in bed. Might as well wake Sterling up, tell him to use the […]
Life just got a little more interesting. Pierce went from standing at the bottom of the stairs to scaling them in seconds… and then trying to dismount just as fast. If I accomplish nothing else today, it’s still a success. I caught the baby AND I took photos for the blog.
