15 Months

This past week has been a really rough one around here. Basically, there was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad event that occurred that resulted in the death of one of Stella’s daycare mates last week. You’ve probably read about it in the news, it’s that bad. At any rate, we’ve been spending this past week holding her close and thinking about how it’s impossible to protect her from all of the bad people in the world, and that is so, so scary. We love you so much Stella.


  1. Realizing that we can’t protect our children from everything horrible is one of the hardest things to accept.

  2. Since you mentioned this event, I’ve been reading like crazy and found their blog and have been reading it. I just can’t imagine the pain that they’re going through. Things like that are NEVER supposed to happen but particularly to people we know (obviously, I don’t know them… I’m referring to you here). I’m so sorry that y’all are dealing with this so closely. Just love on that sweet baby girl and know that you’ll protect her from everything that you are capable of protecting her from.

  3. Oh honey hugs I hope you are ok xx

  4. My heart wrenches when I hear of such things. Saying a prayer for those families.

  5. That ponytail picture is awesome! I love how her communication skills have taken off so much in the last month, there is no stopping her now! That story is just awful, I can’t even imagine. Thinking of that family and holding my own a little closer.

    1. I am so sorry for you guys and of course that family. There are no words.
    2. Lyla weighed 24 lbs. 8 oz. at her 9-month on Tuesday 🙂
    3. I was thinking the other day that I miss hearing bout Stella, and remembered signing up for updates rom your family blog but never get them. So I googled chez scov{}, and it’s a different family blog! So weird. I’ll try to follow you again haha.

    1. LOL, ya, when I first started chez scov, I found M-E’s blog as well. I still follow her. 🙂

      How in the world do you make such big babies?! LOL. Lyla is so squeezable.

      I moved my family blog from blogger to wordpress a few months back – maybe that’s the issue?

  7. I’m loving the curled toes in the chair pic- don’t you love the feet?! She is so cute and getting so big… I love the opinions we’re getting too, although we’re not always on the same page lol. I love the ever increasing communication skills and plan to do a post about that soon- what a game changer! Not sure what happened in your town but sometimes I just want to put H in a bubble when I watch the news. Sad.

  8. Oh my, she is just gorgeous!
