Dear Mama, I regret to inform you that Daddy and I hijacked your blog. It was mostly my idea; you see I am the brains of the operation, but I need him for the muscle. Today Daddy and I noticed how sad you were when you realized you had not been able to take my […]
Thank you for all your comments on my last post. I’m glad you all loved the book sling as much as I did! I know blog posts are few and far between these days friends: our crazy schedules hardly allow them, and photos are scarce. Now that Wesley is literally always on the go, he […]
Little by little, we work to make our home more Wesley-friendly, more open to a little creature that crawls toward everything and pulls up on all solid matter. Making our space as much Wesley’s as ours has required some equipment – your basic plug covers, etc. – and a little ingenuity. It’s nowhere near as […]
Today is the first day of Craig’s teaching internship — and the first day of a whole new schedule for us, in some ways, a more consistent one. In the past, Craig’s daily schedule fluctuated. Some days he’d be at school in the mornings, others in the afternoon, and in between he worked his part-time […]
2009 was a most beautiful year for us. Looking forward to all the next year holds in store for everyone. Warmest wishes for 2010 from Lourdes, Craig and Wesley: The Higher Nest.

The festivities really went on for quite some time there, starting a week ago over a playdate with our friend Finn, sharing gifts and company with part of my family who would be out of town on Christmas day, Christmas eve at Mimi’s, Christmas morning with […]
My dearest Wesley Fox: Boy, your mama is really pushing it this time. This was literally the last day I could get away with posting this letter, seeing as how as of tomorrow you’ll be 9 months old. But I couldn’t let time get away from me without celebrating your 8th monthness. The time of […]
Santa and Wes wish everyone very happy holidays!
It seems the more I crave a rhythm to our days, the more it eludes me. There is no time to blog. There is barely time to make a decent meal. There are presents to be wrapped still — presents still to buy. Loads of laundry await me. Wes is closer to 9 months than […]
You’d think it wouldn’t take a whole week to recap Wesley’s first Thanksgiving, but this nest is a sick nest. First Craig was hit overnight with the flu and then a few days later I caught a nasty cold. Wes is miraculously NOT sick with either one of our bugs, but he IS crankily cutting […]
