Happy Halloween!

I love Halloween costumes that are a little bit different.  For example, one year I dressed in all gold, carried a pickaxe, and a burlap sack full of gold nuggets. What was I?  A gold digger of course! This year we had a little too much going on with baby Olive’s early arrival, so I […]

Toddler Tantrums

Charlie has been really difficult the past couple of weeks.  Up until recently, he rarely threw tantrums and when he did, they were usually mild and we were able to easily distract him.  But he’s thrown some epic tantrums lately for seemingly no reason, and I’m left wondering what happened to my sweet little boy?

I need to buy some more winter clothes for Charlie, so I thought […]

The Ultimate Baby Registry: Bathing and Changing

These are some of my favorite products for bathing and changing Charlie: 1) Diaper Pail – We actually used the Baby Trend Diaper Champ with Charlie because it didn’t require special bags like most other diaper pails.  But once he started eating chunky solids, the diaper pail smelled horrible because it held so much we […]
