Celebrating Our Way

It’s so cliché, but it’s the truth; babies grow up way too fast. My little girl will turn 2 this week. I can remember so vividly the day she was born. It was a magical day that added a new ray of light to our lives. She has made our family even more complete.

Magical Moments from Macks' Eighth Month

Eight months has passed since I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy. It’s hard to believe that just eight short months ago I could hold him in my arms while he slept peacefully without making a soung. Now he’s on the move, chatting up a storm, and very rarely will fall asleep in my arms. It’s crazy how quickly these months go. Just as you begin to embrace a moment, it’s gone.

This month was full of milestones for Macks. He started crawling, pulling himself up, and two of his teeth popped through. With him on the move so much, it’s made it hard to get photos, but I managed to get a few and wanted to share my favorites.

These Wet Bags Are Perfect for a Change in the Weather

Well, it finally happened. The glorious summer and amazing weather we’ve had in the Pacific Northwest has finally turned. As I look out the window, the rain is falling, the traditional red and orange tinged leaves are dripping water onto sidewalks, and morning headlights are reflecting off the sheen of water covering the pavement.

But in this neck of the woods, that doesn’t stop us from braving the outdoors, even with Baby. With these Bumkins wet and snack bags, we’re ready to tackle the elements.

The Cup She Absolutely Can't Do Without

Kids have this way of clinging to the things we least expect. My kids just love certain cups. My daughter especially loves her Minnie Mouse sippy cups made by The First Years. If her drink is not in the right cup, her entire day can go wrong. 

How Our Toddler Helps Us Donate Toys

My kids have a lot of toys – you might even say they’re a wee bit spoiled when it comes to toys. That’s what happens when you have grandparents around who love you and want to grant your every desire. (We love you, abuelos!)

I don’t really mind that my kids have a lot of toys. They have fun and entertain themselves playing with their toys all the time. But sometimes it gets overwhelming. We don’t have a large house and when the toys start taking over every room, I start feeling a little suffocated.
