We celebrated a big birthday in our house last week! Our little man turned One! This mama was so excited, and went a little overboard… He may not remember this birthday, but I definitely will. What a wonderful, exciting, joyful year we had with our little buddy. He makes us laugh every day and brings … More Happy Birthday Jack!

These last few weeks have brought on a lot of changes for our family. I’ve had the opportunity to go back to work part-time (a part-time teaching gig, heck ya!) I was excited to be given this opportunity, however it’s been a big change. Jack has started Mother’s Day Out 2 days a week, and … More It’s Not Babysitting If It’s Your Own Kid…
Last weekend Jack and I surprised Jeff with a trip to Chicago for his 30th Birthday. It was really fun setting it all up and trying to pull it off without him finding out.

I would suggest making sure you have plenty of time to see the exhibit as well as the other … More An Afternoon With Matisse
If Jack isn’t in my arms, he’s likely in a baby carrier. When he was very little and struggling with reflux, he was most comfortable when I would hold him. I’m sure he grew used to it, but he just loooooves to be held. I suppose I don’t really mind the snuggles either…. Although I’m … More Baby Wearing

I’ve come up with a list of some great summertime activities to do with … More Summer Fun in OKC
We recently arrived home from a vacation on the beach in Destin, Florida. It was Jack’s first beach trip and I was a little anxious about how everything would go. Thankfully, it was a pretty smooth trip and I want to share some tips! It’s no secret that when you have kids you accumulate a … More Packing A Beach Bag For a Baby
We recently arrived home from our beach vacation in Destin, Florida. It was Jack’s first beach trip and he had a blast. He was a little nervous about the waves, but did so wonderful playing in his little tent. He only ate sand a few times (win!) and really was such a champ dealing with … More Beach Baby
