baby J turns 2!

Well, the day has come. It’s TODAY actually. Today is Baby J’s birthday. He’s two. I don’t even know where to begin except to say that I love this little stinker more than words could ever describe. He is such a light in our lives. He was such a surprise and quite literally the best … Continue reading

finding balance

I’ve kinda disappeared off the face of the planet again for the last several weeks and with good reason. I needed some ME TIME. What on earth is that, you ask? It’s time that this mama needed to take for herself and for her family. At the end of March, I went to Disneyland with … Continue reading

frustration

There are some days where I am just SO frustrated, and seemingly for absolutely no reason whatsoever. Today was one of those. Although, today, it was for a reason. I substitute taught today in second grade. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE teaching, and the little ones are cute and all, but they’re pretty restless … Continue reading

overcommitted

I really struggle with saying “no.” I always have. I always want to be the person that others count on to show up and do what’s needed. I always want to be the go-to person that takes care of everyone else and is considered “selfless.” It occurred to me recently that my “selflessness” is really … Continue reading

a sick toddler and lots of cuddle time

a sick toddler and lots of cuddle time

I’m convinced that it’s one of the most challenging things in the world to have a sick child. I couldn’t even begin to imagine losing a child (and I pray for those of you that have), but the pain of watching your little person go through pain and suffering is heartbreaking. This week, Baby J … Continue reading

It’s been a few months since I’ve written and with good reason, those little things called the holidays. We are always super busy during the holiday season (who isn’t?) and so the thing that ended up getting neglected was this blog as we worked, served, baked, cooked, and hosted. I apologize. Anyways, being that it’s … Continue reading

where does the time go?

I’ve been thinking about where my time has gone recently. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was walking down the aisle to say “I do” to Mr. Wonderful. I feel even more like yesterday, I gave birth to Baby J. But nope. Those things have both happened quite awhile ago. I think … Continue reading

This week has been full of its ups and downs, as most are. Our dear friends welcomed their sweet baby boy into the world, we came home from a weekend away, and we also all got sick, meaning that we’ve had a fussy Baby J and a tired mama and dada. That’s all part of … Continue reading

birth and new life

birth and new life

As a couple of our close friends anticipate the arrival of their son, I have been thinking a ton about pregnancy, birth, and the new life that is about to come into this world. Folks, baby fever is in full swing over here, and that baby isn’t even born yet. I get teary thinking about … Continue reading

why we cloth diaper

why we cloth diaper

Initially, we didn’t have any real interest in using cloth diapers for Baby J. Let me rephrase that, Mr. Wonderful didn’t have any real interest in cloth diapering Baby J. He was so opposed to it. To be honest, I can’t blame him. Washing poop??? REUSING diapers? Really?! It sounds horrible, right? Well, it was … Continue reading
