Cullen’s 28-month letter

Monday, June 4th, 2012

So, now I have a new plan of doing every 4 months for Cullen’s 2nd year, since I couldn’t get my act together to do a 27-month letter. I don’t think he’ll mind too much. Here’s the latest letter to Cullen. I managed to finish the letter a day or two after the “birthday,” but it took me longer to get the photos together. (more…)

Happy 4th birthday, Maddie!

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Finally! I’ve been working on this letter to Maddie since her birthday. I think I made a mistake only doing these every 6 months now. I had quite a bit to cover. You might want to skim the photos and call it a day. (more…)

Happy 2nd birthday, little man!

Monday, February 6th, 2012

I’ve been working on Cullen’s letter since his birthday, but I had quite a bit to cover this time. I think it’s probably my longest letter ever, but it has a lot of major milestones and events! (more…)

Cullen’s 21 month letter

Sunday, November 6th, 2011

I’m a bit late on my latest letter to Cullen. Once again, I had the letter mostly ready to go shortly after his birthday, but I had to pick out the photos. I can’t believe my next letter will be when he turns TWO! (more…)

Maddie is 3.5!

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

It feels like as soon as I finish one letter, it’s time to write the next one. I’m glad that I am writing these as I have trouble remembering what I had for lunch much less what the kids were doing at any specific time period. Here’s the latest installment of my letters to Maddie. (more…)

Cullen is one and a half!

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

I’ve been working on this one for a couple of weeks (he was 18 months on July 22nd). I was a little slow to put the finishing touches on it and collect the photos. Now it is almost time to write Maddie’s 3.5 year letter. Whew. Here’s the latest letter to Cullen. (more…)

Maddie’s 39 month letter (a bit overdue)

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

I decided that I wanted to continue doing the letters every 3 months for Maddie. I still feel like so much happens in that time period, and I just want to keep it all documented for her (and for me!). I hope to put letters to Maddie into books for her along with other keepsakes, photos, and milestones. I only need to write one letter this month, since I’m doing Cullen’s every 3 months now, but I still can’t manage to get it written on time! I’ve had this one mostly written for a couple of weeks…but I just now found the time to add the photos. (more…)

Cullen’s 15-month letter

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

I feel like a ton has happened in the past month. The time always goes by quickly, but I felt like I had a little break from the letter writing this time…for once. I can’t believe I’m getting this thing out on time! Here’s the last monthly installment in letters to Cullen. My next letter to him will be in 3 months! (more…)

Cullen is 14 months old!

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

As of yesterday, Cullen is now 14 months old! He’s an amazing little boy, and we’re enjoying seeing all of his developments. It’s time for another letter to Cullen! (more…)

Cullen is 13 months!

Monday, March 7th, 2011

I can’t believe that in a couple months, I’ll only be doing Cullen’s letters every three months! I think that will make it easier since then Cullen and Maddie’s letters won’t fall during the same month anymore! Cullen’s letter this time is a couple weeks late…hopefully, I will be more on time next month. (more…)
