The latest and greatest from the Bakers...

my girls :)

Thanksgiving prep with Uncle Jefe. Yes, we braved Costco the day before Thanksgiving - we're crazy.

Girls day!

Twinning with Auntie Katinka!

Daddy's little helper

Thank you, Little Worm and Company! (Glad they're still making these so our girls could match.)

The girls and I headed up to Blue Ridge, GA with my mom for a night. I had never been before, but am now kind of obsessed! It was adorable.


Celebrating Whitney and her sweet baby girl, Anna, who is due later this month.

Gingerbread party at the Palestrini's!

Snow day is an understatement. We got 8 inches!

Esther is 1!

We officially have a fence - thank you Adam and Dave (and Aiden, of course).

This girl.

Aiden's Christmas party at school! She was being so silly and shy, but her teacher says she's doing great.

Morning story time. Sometimes I just watch these moments and my heart explodes thinking about how they will have each other for their whole lives.

Mom & Dad moved! Aiden was Uncle Mitch's special helper during the move.

Christmas Eve - making memories, amirite?

Precious one all ready for Christmas Eve church! It's the one time a year the entire family goes (read: no childcare). It was a circus keeping both kids calm for an hour, but we survived. And Emerson farted really loud during a prayer. Go girl. 

Putting out the reindeer food on Christmas Eve! Live footage of her checking it on Christmas morning here. So precious I could cry. 

We're making it a Christmas tradition to read the story of Christmas from the Bible first thing Christmas morning. Thank you to Adam's cousin, Erica, for the idea!


Merry Christmas! Santa brought me a cooperative family who puts up with matching pajamas. I grabbed a video of Aiden walking down on Christmas morning. She doesn't quite get it, but it still felt like magic to me. This Christmas season was SO MUCH FUN, I was so sad to see it go.

We celebrated Christmas morning with my family at our house.

Yes, we ALL matched. 

Thank you for the drum set, Grandma!

Cousin picture with Gigi.

Santa brought her an art table - hooray!

I babysat Sara Emily and Caroline when I was in high school and look at them now! Sara Emily is a junior in college and Caroline is a sophomore in high school (and driving!). #imold

I went to get Aiden from her nap at Nonna and Papa's new house and opened the door to a room covered in pills! She got into Nonna's sleeping pills. Poison control was so great. We spent a few hours under observation at the ER (she had to drink charcoal - bleh), but she was fine. I'm 99% sure she didn't actually eat any. Oy vey.

Cheering on the Dawgs! They made it all the way to the National Championship, but lost in OT. Sad ending, but great season!

This girl loves her feetsies!

Celebrating Alysa's 30th birthday at 8Arm. 

Hanging out with her other Gigi!

A rare moment of her sleeping peacefully.

The Hafertepes came to town and we were able to celebrate Maren's first birthday! We love them so much and wish they lived next door. 

She loves to sleep with her hands folded.

I came back from the bathroom to this. Morning jams with sissy!
