Max’s Room Tour

Welcome to Max’s room! It’s practically breaking my heart that it is finished just in time for us to pack up and move. But, perhaps its pulled togetherness will be a selling point when the house is listed? At least Max will have a fun documentation of his very first big boy room! I designed this […]

I really wanted Jemma and Max to share a room. I thought it would be sweet – all Hansel and Gretel, you know. Buuuuut, they just weren’t having it. Max was keeping Jemma awake. Jemma didn’t like the top bunk like I’d hoped, their personalities are polar opposite, and between the two of them, I […]

Reid is my little foodie. This boy has been eyeing my plate for months and every nibble he gets, he savors, loves, and truly enjoys. Flavors are his friend and independence is his game.  But, here’s the thing. I kinda hate feeding him. I mean, I do! Of course! Or, Jemma does :) But can […]

img_6048

Mr. Reid is a breakfast lover. No doubt. He wakes up hungry and practically crawls straight to his high chair as soon as we make it downstairs. For awhile I scooped him up to nurse while the big kids sat at the table, but Reid made it clear that he wanted to be a part of […]

IMG_3522

By now you’ve probably caught wind that I never intended to be a WAHM. This blog was birthed as a simple way to chronicle my pregnancy with Jemma for family that lived far away. And from there it grew. Slowly, but it did. To more than I ever thought it would be. And then it grew beyond this […]
