It's been a full year since Samuel Peregrine graced us with his presence, adding new excitement to our family life in time for a pandemic.
My daughter Maddie is at a wonderful age. She's 19 months old and is learning more every single day. Here's a snapshot of 52 random things she has acquired during her time on Earth.
At 14 months, Maddie has become increasingly verbal, increasingly mobile, increasingly intelligent, increasingly playful and increasingly fun to be around. And time is going faster than ever!
As Maddie settles into her second year of life, her brain seems to be turned up to 11. The number of new skills she has acquired recently is astounding.
Today is my first child's first birthday. That's only going to happen once! How can I distill 365 incredible days into a single blog post? I probably can't.
Every day Maddie seems to be getting a little bit more interactive, a little bit more intelligent and a little bit closer to communicating with us.
Now that our daughter is becoming more mobile and curious, keeping her safe is becoming a difficult and necessary full-time job.
My daughter seems to be developing a sense of humor...so what role do parents play in developing humor in their children?
The trouble with hands is that they don't come with an instruction manual. In her fifth month of life, my daughter is learning that the hard way.
Maddie's first Christmas would have been momentous enough, but she is filling the week before Christmas with some other firsts, too.
