Twenty

twenty+things

Instagram inspired me to dig deep and round up twenty random things I’m sure you were just dying to know about me :) 1) In college I was first runner up for Miss Portland. 2) I’ve never broken a bone. 3) I wish I would have gone to design school – specifically graphic or textile, […]

happy+day

Here’s Part One and Part Two.   A week ago Max became cast free – yippee!    Truly, we were in a good groove with cast life. Max adjusted quickly and figured out crawling and walking just fine with his new accessory. He didn’t seem to itch or get too hot and since it was […]

Ok, ok – my kiddos aren’t real koalas, but I can’t help but feel like I’m their mama koala and they are my sweet baby koalas when wearing them close in our Onya Baby Carrier. We were given the opportunity to review the Outback in this luscious burnt orange and slate gray and it’s a […]

The surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning – the first surgery of the day actually. We have to be at the hospital at 6 am which means we’re leaving home a bit before […]

Wordless Wednesday | Nursing, Everywhere But Home

airplane+nursing+600w

We’re on the go, often. And that means these babies of mine eat while we’re out and about. This month brings 12 months of Max breastfeeding. With the almost 13 months that Jemma nursed, that means I’ve been at it for awhile, and hence, I’ve accumulated a handful of some fun and adventurous photos taken […]
