Baby Einstein Musical Motions Activity Jumper {Review}

Halli has been crawling for about a month now and she is starting to pull herself to stand.  I love this age, she is really curious and wants to explore everything.  This fun stage of exploring makes it hard to get things done without having to run over and keep her from climbing a side table, the ottoman, or trying to get somewhere she shouldn't.  I need to get things done like the dishes, but … [Read more...]

At our house we love reading.  Ever since Hayden was a little baby we would read.  We read during play time, we read before naps or bed time, and we even read during bath time with fun tub books.  I think because we started to read lots of books early and often Hayden now has his own appreciation for good books.  He is almost 5  and has been starting to sound out words and trying spell!  I about … [Read more...]

The holiday season is right around the corner!  Can you believe it?!  I like to get a jump on my holiday shopping now because I do not love shopping  packed stores, fighting crowds, searching for toys in unorganized chaos, grumpy or stressed out store workers, trying to park and all that.  Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like people fighting each other over the “must have” toy for the year.  … [Read more...]

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness: My Story {Megan}

I was so naïve.  I was so unaware of how common miscarriage was.  I knew a few people that had miscarried and I was sad for them, but I couldn’t imagine what that loss was like.  I never thought it would happen to me.  1 in 4 women miscarry, and in between Hayden and Halli I would be the 1.  I have been running the idea of sharing my story for months.  What to share, what to leave out?  Do I … [Read more...]
