The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

Growth

This is news only because Roscoe's stats have been comfortably hanging out in the bottom 25th percentile, and during his infant months were in the bottom 2%: Roscoe is in the 58th percentile for weight (27 lbs.) and 40th percentile for height (32.5 in.)! He grew 2.5 inches and gained 2.5 pounds in just three months, which substantially altered the trajectory of his growth curve. I'm 5 feet tall so I can't help him out much, but here's to hoping that he will blend in with the crowd as he continues to grow. I finally had a chance to record his height measurements on his growth chart which was a fun thing to do.

On another note, Andy was out town for most of the week and while we got along just fine, his absence left me and Roscoe pining for his return. There have been very few times since Roscoe was born that Andy has had to travel--this was only the second time that I can recall. For someone who rarely has the opportunity, I was exhausted and empowered by the responsibility to mother Roscoe day and night, and also functionally run the house. I enjoyed the time that I don't typically get to hang out with Roscoe, namely the early morning hours that this week nicely lent themselves to pancake breakfasts, finger painting explorations, and Internet video browsing--the favorites of which turned out to be a chicken laying an egg, and a goat pooping.

I have yet to share our Christmas recap (I really hope to find time soon) but the highlight for Roscoe of five days in Walt Disney World, was a goat in the Animal Kingdom that "ate hay", and "pooped". We haven't heard the end of it yet! He becomes overwhelmed with sudden excitement in the middle of everyday activities and begins belting "Goat!" "Goat!" "Goat!" It's fascinating how his little mind works.

  1. Wow, that is a big growth spurt! Lilah has always been tall (between 75 and 90%) but on the thin side (25-40%). But whenever I happily exclaim to the doctor that she will be tall as a grown up, her doc gently lets me down and tells me that isn't the case. So he may end up being a tall guy even if he was a small baby!
