4 Years & 28 Weeks Married | What Does Jake Even Do?

It seems no one really quite understands what exactly Jake does as an Econ Ph.D. student. He’s like Chandler from Friends! Most people seem to think he does stuff with money, finance, stocks, or some sort of accounting. Cindy likes to joke that Jake just sits at his desk from 9:00am to 9:00pm writing random […]

4 Years & 24 Weeks Married | Week of Firsts!

We visited Cindy’s dad this past weekend and slept over! It was our first overnight trip since nap training Baby R. We were a little nervous about how she would sleep in a new environment, but she did pretty well! She cried for about 30 minutes but after that slept through the rest of the […]

4 Years & 23 Weeks Married | Moths Update

About a year ago, Jake spent about $100 and bought a cherry tree to raise some caterpillars with the hopes that they would turn into cecropia moths. (Read more about that here!)

4 Years & 21 Weeks Married | 9 Months Postpartum

Somewhere along the way, we went from counting up to Baby R’s first birthday to counting down. It’s cliche, but…WHERE DID THE TIME GO!?

We’ve forgotten how much we love bowling! On Saturday, the two of us went out for a bowling date! Cindy wasn’t super excited about the date at first because she didn’t want to leave Baby R behind and she underestimated how fun bowling would be. But she’s really happy Jake insisted.

4 Years & 17 Weeks Married | Baby R’s Second Olympics!

(Picture is unrelated to the Olympics. We went to the Super Bowl Experience event at the LA Convention Center. We don’t know anything about the Super Bowl, so it was a bit random. We went mainly to hang out with our friends. We felt totally out of our element, but it was a new experience […]

4 Years & 14 Weeks Married | Baby R Updates

So many changes have been happening with Baby R, we can barely keep up! Turns out, the reason why Baby R was the fussiest and clingiest she’d ever been during Christmas time was because she was teething!!! We’re pretty sure that’s the reason since shortly after two little bottom teeth popped out. Aside from the […]

4 Years & 13 Weeks Married | The Perfect Day

We had the most “perfect day” on Sunday. It might not sound like much, but it was one of those days where everything felt easy. The weather was perfect, warm and sunny but not hot. Time went by at just the right pace, no dragging and no rushing. And Baby R had nice long naps […]
