Reid — 15 1/2 Months

IMG_3635

Once upon a time, if I remember correctly, my kids had monthly updates here on the blog. I don’t remember much anymore, but I did use the old fashion search bar and discover that Reid hasn’t had a personalized update since he was 10 months <<< look how short his hair was! *Mother walk of shame* Or, […]

We’ve started venturing out a bit and exploring our new town (and surrounding towns because it’s kinda tiny). It’s majorly lacking in art walls which is sad because the hashtag must live on! But, there are perks to tiny. Perks like … there is never a line at Starbucks, we have a brand new Grocery […]

Jemma’s Take on Tenney Grant (and Logan Too!)

IMG_3548

Last month Jemma had a special delivery from American Girl. She had seen her in person on our Chicago trip and swooned over her curls, outfits, and contemporary buddy. I could give you the scoop from my perspective (because ya’ll know I’m practically as in love with AG as Jemma is), but I thought it […]

We’re home safe and sound from the hospital! Such a relief to this worried mama’s heart. Everything went just as planned and we’ll head back to Seattle for a follow up in about 6 weeks. I’m so thankful and even more happy that it was just a day surgery. Overnights in the hospital are so […]

Hello Second Trimester!

hello second trimester

Oh my lanta.  That was rough. Well, it kind of still is (evening nausea anyone?), but I’m aiming to begin the start of the week, AND the start of my second trimester, with a brighter perspective and manageable to do list. And yay, you get to check it out, because what else would you want […]

I turned 30 last October and as my gift Dominic promised me a fancy day in Seattle. Together we chose to go see King and I since it was coming up at the Paramount and it did not disappoint! Well, for me at least, Dominic wasn’t really familiar with the storyline (which is partially true!) and […]

Breastfeeding Essentials Guide

My mama resume boasts 5 years of breastfeeding. FIVE. YEARS. There was a break when I was pregnant with Max and then a few weeks between Max weaning and Reid being born. So, for the most part, this whole nourishing another person with my body has been a full time gig for a long time. […]

There’s no better way to begin my lazy year than with a round up of all the fantastic things other fine folk are up to, right? Technically, I’m not being lazy AT ALL. Our house has a closing date, we’re packing to move, I’m still homeschooling Jem, and juggling a work from home schedule. Every […]

  With a new baby in 2016 I didn’t quite finish my entire book list from last January, but hey, can you blame me? New babes are busy and unpredictable! I did LOVE many of the books from my 2016 list so if you’re looking for recommendations, definitely check out this list! I’d say my […]

Last week we had snow. The first snow Jemma and Max really remember! It took almost a half hour to get them bundled up and within 10 minutes or so Max was telling me it was too cold. That boy! Mimi swooped in and distracted him with plans to make a trio of little snowmen while Reid and […]
