A Mother’s Joy

(Here I am 39 weeks pregnant with my daughter, born in 2009.) A very wise man once said, "A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come, but as soon as she has given birth...
When I was young, I was the world's worst eater. Seriously. Think having a Pepsi a few times a day (being 6 years old!), endless bags of chips, candy, and one too many Happy Meals! After so many years...
I always enjoy when my children's grandparents, whether it be my parents or my in-laws, come into town for a visit.  In our family, visits from grandparents include chatting and catching up of course, but also a chance for...

Got Behavior Problems?

Life tends to have its ups and downs. Just when you think everything is great, you may be thrown a curve ball. My oldest is 5 and he has just entered his first year of elementary school. He tends...

Toddler Boys

I write this today, feeling like no longer a mother of an infant, but a full fledged toddler. It changed in an instant it seems, and now I am desperate for tips, tricks, book recommendations. I feel like I...

It's been so fun reading all of the birth stories!  My most recent birth story happened to take place almost 16 years ago, which seems so long ago, however;  reading all of these great stories took my right back...
I recently celebrated my 29th birthday. I have always loved birthdays. It's so fun to celebrate with the people you love.  One thing that I started doing for my birthday now that I'm a mom is getting freebies for...

Traveling with Children

There seems to be a love-hate relationship when I think about traveling with my daughter, for sure.  I love spending time with my family creating fun memories on vacation, but getting to and from there is always an interesting experience. ...
Patience is a topic that keeps coming up over and over for moms with young children.  This is definitely one of my major struggles as a parent.  My daughter Madeleine is three (“three and a half!” as she will...

Welcoming my Twins

The majority of pregnancies with multiples start getting "exciting" much sooner than those of singletons.  Because of this, my story needs a little intro leading up to their actual birth.  It was definitely a difficult time in my life,...
Before we announce the winner, I wanted to extend a special offer from Malia B Photography!  Even if you were not the winner of the newborn session give-a-way, you still can have a chance to have a session with...
Our daughter went to second grade yesterday. It really does just seem like yesterday that I held her scrunchy little newborn self in my arms and couldn’t imagine that time would exist outside that moment. While time escaped us,...

Struggling for Glory

This summer, Ellie (my 3 year old) got to take her first dance class! She dances around the house NON-STOP so I figured it was time ;) I did quite a bit of looking around to find a great...
It was two days before my due date. My belly swollen, feet tired, and that anxiety that only the last few days of pregnancy can bring, I was ready for Elijah, our second born child, to arrive. I had...

Welcoming Ayva

  OK, where do I begin? I guess I’ll start with a little background on my pregnancy with Ayva first.  The first trimester was rough, lots of morning sickness (or what should be called all-the-time sickness).  I lost a bit...
Most moms I know call the birth of their children the happiest day of their lives- I can't agree more. I met my older daughter on a beautiful, bright morning in the middle of the most gut wrenching time...
Corbin’s Birth Story My second baby was born in November 2011. It was a boy, and we’d already picked the name Corbin. I was planning to do a VBAC- my first baby, my daughter Madeleine, had been a scheduled C-section...

My Birth Story

I am honored to share my birth story, because even though to me it may seem very "plain" or "normal", I know every birth experience is very different and special to each mother. I had my son in the hospital....
One of the first big milestones in a baby's life is getting to try real food.  As a parent, there are a few options to consider with baby food, with the main one being:  Do you buy or make...
