What Does the Fox Say?

What does the fox say? “Happy birthday Knox!” that’s what.

Ha…but for real, due to the rhyming nature of Knox and fox, I anticipate we will milk this theme for all it’s worth for years to come. And because foxes are so darn cute, I’m totally ok with re-using the same theme multiple times over.

We tried our best to celebrate Knox’s first year as much as we could.

Watch Knox Grow // 12 MONTHS

I can’t even believe I’m writing this post. Has it seriously already been a year?! It’s crazy to think 12 months have gone by since that amazing, little boy entered our lives. I know it’s “only” been a year, but it’s hard to remember what life was like before miniature laundry, diapers, sippy cups, Duplos [the big Legos], fox EVERYTHING and remote controls that sing to you.

Watch Knox Grow // 11 Months

It’s getting real friends. T minus ONE MONTH until ONE YEAR.

I know this next month is going to FLY by. Partially because just when you want time to slow down, it seems to speed up, but also because we’re entering into the holiday season. When I was little it seemed like the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas took 3 months instead of 1, and now that I’m an adult, and especially as a mom, it seems to take one day.

Watch Knox Grow // 10 Months

knox 10 months

10 month CollageThis has been a super fun month with Knox. He’s definitely keeping us on our toes, as he’s crawling EVERYWHERE and pulling himself up on anything possible, and reaching for anything and everything, which of course goes straight into his mouth! [His current “naughty” favorites…TV remotes, Stella’s tennis balls, and clean diapers…]

It’s getting sooo surreal that he’s only 2 months away from being ONE YEAR OLD.

Watch Knox Grow // 9 months

[Ummmm it’s definitely getting harder to get these monthly pictures…above is the progression that took place about 849302843902 times before we got one we could use. And I emphasize that we got ONE that we could use.]

9 months. Knox has officially been outside the womb longer than he was inside. Pregnancy seemed to encompass years, while the past 9 months have felt like ONE.

Watch Knox Grow // 6 + 7 + 8 months

6-8 month CollageThese last 3 months have been INSANE. I haven’t always been on time with Knox’s monthly posts, but from the time Knox turned 6 months, our lives have literally been non-stop. I hate being so incredibly late on this, but in the end I simply had to give myself grace in not posting his 6 or 7 month posts on time. 

I was all set to write his 6 month post on his 6 month “birthday,” however, that afternoon we ended up at Dayton Children’s Hospital with our sweet boy.

I can’t believe our little guy will be a whole half year old in ONE month!! It’s been such a fast and fun five months, each stage gets better and better! There is definitely a part of me that misses my teeny tiny baby, but I can’t get enough of each and every smile and laugh coming from him! 

Knox’s big milestone achievement this month was rolling over from his back to his belly!

Watch Knox Grow // Four Months

So I am waaaaaay behind with posting this…but better late than never right?

April was a good month to us with the weather warming up, and a trip home, getting to spend lots of time with family and friends! Our smiley boy had quite the exciting 4th month of life!

Watch Knox Grow // 3 Months

Knox 3 month Collage

Well, we are officially through the “Fourth Trimester,” as I’ve heard it called. And although Knox is a really good baby, I can understand why the first 3 months received that nickname. Over the past few weeks, Knox’s little personality has really started to show, and his sleeping habits are getting more consistent. We’re able to have more of a routine to our lives as a little family, and I’m feeling more and more confident about stepping out of the house with him in tow.
