Curiously, with every baby I have had, their baby hood seems to zoom by faster and faster.
By the time we had our fourth baby, I swear I blinked and she was already almost two months old–how did that happen?
It was about the time when I figured out how fast time really does go by that I finally got around to setting up my daughter’s baptism–and of course, as most things go with kids, things didn’t exactly go as I planned.
From the time when I was a small child, I always loved babies. I had so many baby dolls with tons of accessories — from strollers, to blankets, to pacifiers. So, of course, one of my favorite parts of preparing to have a baby in our home was filling out the registry!
There are so many options for gifts to put on the registry. Here is my list of 10 popular items I’ve seen on registries and links to buy them from Disney Baby. Check them out!
Getting ready to travel with children during the holidays feels a bit like an Olympic event. The prepping, the packing, all the other people — everything about it makes it feel like an epic undertaking. We’re gearing up for our big Thanksgiving travel plans, and I’m not going to lie, my heart starts beating a bit faster when I think about it.

I feel so fortunate that my husband’s parents and siblings are such wonderful people, especially after some of the stories I hear from friends about their strained relationships with in-laws. And thank goodness they are, as we now live 10 miles from Chris’ parents in a small town in Arkansas.
It is such a blessing having them so close. My boys absolutely love going to “grandma and grandpa’s house” and spending time with their 1-year-old cousin Phoenix. And we finally have people to babysit our little guys so we can have date night!
