First Trip to the State Fair!

As a stay-at-home mom, I’m always looking for reasons to get out of the house with my boys.

Recently the Arkansas State Fair came to Little Rock, an hour away from where we live. My sister-in-law, who has a 1-year-old daughter named Phoenix, called me and asked if the boys and I wanted to go to the fair. Of course, we said yes!

We had a blast! Read on to see pictures of our little ones enjoying their first time at the fair.

Saying Goodbye to My Disney Baby Family

Nine months ago, I began a wonderful journey writing for Disney Baby. It’s been an incredible experience. I have learned so much about my children and myself in such a short period of time. I have had moments where I found myself looking for the magic in the simplest things, because that’s what Disney has done to me; they’ve encouraged me to see the magic in my day-to-day life. When I think about it, they’ve probably done that for you, too.  

Making Magical Memories... My Own Way

We live in a culture where we are constantly connected to others, and as much as I love keeping up with what my friends (and to be honest, even perfect strangers) and their children are up to via social media, it can be hard not to feel pressured to keep up with the Joneses… or however that saying goes. But, I’m not talking about pressure to have a nicer house or car, but rather the pressure to make childhood magical for our little ones.

When I see parents who make their kids amazing, elaborate bento box lunches with princess faces, or who hand stitch super awesome Halloween costumes, it’s hard not to feel like I’m doing it wrong. But, lately I’m starting to look at it differently, because magic is in the eye of the beholder.

Have a Magical Holiday at Disney World with Baby!

There really is something magical about Disney World. From the second you step foot through the gates, your world changes. The streets are always clean, the workers are always happy and helpful, everyone in the park seems to be having the best time of their lives!

And when they decorate for the holidays, it becomes even more beautiful! From the dazzling lights to the Christmas carolers, everything just comes alive in the holiday spirit. After all, it is called the happiest place on earth for a reason.

I know my two boys are going to love our first trip to Disney World. We don’t have an exact date nailed down yet, but I’m planning a trip for next year at Christmas. Christmas at Disney World has always been my favorite time. The parks go all out for each holiday, but there is just something extra special about Christmastime.

Read on to find out all of my tips for an AMAZING Holiday at Disney World.

When Baby Steps Turn Into Leaps and Bounds

“Adults are only kids grown up, anyway.”
- Walt Disney

At 13 months, our little guy is picking up on so many new things. From knowing the names of certain toys and stuffed animals, to picking items out of a collection of toys when you ask him, the development he’s going through is just so fast. And for a first time parent, it’s quite remarkable.
