Putting together the kids Easter baskets was so fun. These are the things I absolutely love doing. I think its more for me then for the kiddos, and an excuse to grab a few of those items I’ve been needing wanting to get them. I thought I would share so we can come back for next year & get some reminders/ideas! How adorable are these baskets my cousin MADE. She is so talented. You can purchase them by contacting her through her Facebook page HERE. She also made the adorable little bunny for Clare.
Here are just a few…Continue Reading >
Somehow Easter has come and gone and it’s a week later. I don’t think I’ve ever been so tired as I was the afternoon after the Easter craziness, and the rest of the week. Its been a crazy busy month.
Levi was so excited when he woke up and the Easter bunny had come and left some baskets of goodies for him and sister. We tried to hype up Easter to him and tell him how Jesus died for our sins but he would just stare at us in confusion. Then come Sunday morning he was running throughout the house…Continue Reading >
It seems like photographers just don’t take enough photos of their OWN lives & children. I hear it all the time, so I know that I am not the only one. Even if you are not a photographer, it happens! Its just a little odd when you have this awesome camera and are hired to take photos of your clients babies and then here you sit with no professional photos of your own children. I kick myself for not taking enough of Levi but with the whole ‘new mom’ anxiety and what not, it just didn’t happen as much as it…Continue Reading >
I can tell you guys one thing, I do NOT plan on having 6 kids anytime soon. Holy moly. This past weekend my mom and I watched my sister Tara’s kids while her and her husband were in Arizona on vacation. [Ages: 7, 6, 3, 2, 1.5, 7 months] We more so tagged teamed it because we both had to work. At one point we had all 7. YIKES. I will say it wasn’t near as bad as I had worked it up to be in my head prior to the weekend. I just kept thinking in my head,…Continue Reading >
I envisioned this past weekend going much differently then what actually took place. That seems to happen a lot doesn’t it?! Friday morning I headed off to Ikea with my friend Alisa. We had planned this trip months prior & I just love talking about something for so long and then actually DOING it. Feels so good. So we met up super early & drove the two and a half + hours to the maze of a store. Which I love.
The day was awesome & I really feel like we moved at a good pace! We…Continue Reading >
I’ve been excited to share for awhile now Levi’s 2nd birthday party we had the day before his birthday. Still hasn’t hit me we have a TWO year old in the house now! Some days I’m like, ‘yup … terrible two’s is in full swing’ but then again, I feel like its more like terrible one + a half.
Something I actually really enjoy is planning & putting together little birthday parties. Pinterest parties some call them. I honestly just LOVE planning them and it has nothing to do with ‘what people think’. In fact, most of my family could…Continue Reading >
We’ve had our little Clare in our lives for almost seven months now! But I still wanted to do a six month post because I feel like they need to be six months for a little bit before you can update on what they’re like at six months! Does that make sense? I cannot believe we have had her in our lives for over half a year. I swear she was born last month but then again, she just fits in our little family so well, it feels like she’s been here all along. Having two babies back to back,…Continue Reading >
Hello Monday! Our to do list is long but we’re excited for the week over here … but still dreaming about this weekend. We spent it up north at our cabin in northern Michigan and although it didn’t snow as much as we would have liked, Levi still had a great weekend. If this little guy gets to be outside at all in a day, he’s one happy camper. Our trip up there, which is a three hour drive didn’t go as good as we would have liked so we stopped for an hour and had some dinner to give the…Continue Reading >
Our little Levi man turned two on Monday, I just don’t understand how that happened already. Matthew and I talked about how it gives us both anxiety to think how fast the last two years have gone by. I wish I could freeze time. I love this age. We’re in a fun spot with both kiddos, Levi makes us laugh DAILY and I’ve always been obsessed with 6-9 months too which is where Clare is.
I wanted to make his birthday special and not like our every day here at home, because my fellow stay at home mom’s can…Continue Reading >
The title pretty much sums up our weekend. I swear Saturday was just one of those days where I felt like I changed 872 diapers. Poopy ones. You know you’re having a shitty day when you are walking around and think, holy crap, my coffee breath can’t be THAT bad?! And look down to see a bunch of poo on your boob. Sweet. We kept our spirits up though and didn’t let these poopiness effect our moods of course. For the most part, we spent the snowy weekend at home, snuggling + playing all while I’m trying to edit in…Continue Reading >
