Smoothie Bowl

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

I’ve instituted a new plan in the freezer! I try to feed Nathan almost all organic fruits and veggies. It’s something that’s important to me–no worries if it’s not important to you. The rest of us have what we can afford…sometimes it’s organic and sometimes it’s not. Many days the little guy manages to chow down […]

Having a new baby gives me the opportunity to rethink my decisions on parenting and schooling. It’s interesting to me my thoughts as I think through things I did for James and what I want to do or change for Nathan. I am leaning toward more “unschooling” for the very early years but I’m not […]

This Makes Me Insanely Happy

Friday, March 27th, 2015

    This little pile near my front door made me smile yesterday. Big boy shoes and little boy rain boots and his rubber ducky. I’m not sure why the rubber ducky isn’t in the tub, but apparently it needed to be by the rain boots. I’m so very thankful for my two precious boys. […]

Toddler Food Ideas

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

  I’m no toddler feeding expert, but I read when James was a baby that children pick up their picky habits between year 1 and 2. So with James, I worked very hard to help him learn to eat all kinds of good food when he was 1. I’m doing the same with Nathan. This […]

Pin It

18 months

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

  I often get a huge smile and thank God for letting us have this baby. It’s hard to believe he’s been here for 18 months already. 18 months of smiles, snuggles, and sheer joy! Thank you, God. He’s a very precious blessing to all of us. (big boy is too!!)

My Little Book Lover

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

Our little guy LOVES books. He’s often in the corner by his book basket chattering away as he looks at his books. Today, he brought his Itsty Bitsy Spider book to me and said, “sun!” to show me the page about the sun coming out to dry up all the rain. I love that he […]

Smoothie Cubes

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

We like smoothies around here. I think they’re a great way to get lots of nutrients into kids and they taste good too! Lots of times, we make yogurt smoothies but more recently, I’ve been making homemade kefir and use that for smoothies. Nathan loves smoothies and I love seeing him slurp them down knowing […]

16 Months

Monday, November 10th, 2014

  This little guy is 16 months old already! I realized that I hadn’t shared a picture of him for awhile so I wanted to rectify that. He wasn’t very cooperative with the photo taking. He grabbed his bear and said “Bee uh” (how he pronounces bear). He was throwing it around and crawling all […]

This Makes Me Happy

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

I’m not necessarily happy because I have Little People all over my floor. I’m happy because of the pudgy little baby who loves to play with the Little People. We’re so very thankful that God chose to bless us with him. He makes us laugh every day……and he leaves his Little People all over the […]

Traveling With Baby

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Photo credit: FidlerJan from We don’t take too many road trips and the ones we’ve taken have been short–a couple hours or less. When James was a baby, we flew for all our vacations. Baby Nathan went on a 3 hour road trip with my sister and I in the early summer but that’s […]
