“Everyone Poops”

There is a children’s book out there called “Everyone Poops” by Taro Gomi. Well everyone poops except my kid! Yes, this post is all about baby poop. I have officially become one of those moms. So Austin has been eating solid foods for a few months. Now, Austin has never been “regular”, but after starting […] Read more…

Sticker Charts

I love sticker charts! No, not for Austin (yet. . . ), but for me. I love that you can use sticker charts for anything and they visual show accomplishment. It started when I was in high school. Well, I am sure my mom was doing sticker charts for me long before that, but I really […] Read more…

Swim Lessons

Last night was Austin’s last swim lesson for the summer. We will probably start back up in the fall, while in the mean time Aaron and I will continue to bring him to the pool to keep him comfortable going in water. Since he is so young, we learned techniques to do with him until […] Read more…

Easter Weekend

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I know we did. It was pretty busy, but we had a lot of extra family time which is always nice! All though the Easter Bunny skipped our house this year (Austin is a little too young to really appreciate it) we did start off our holiday […] Read more…

Friday Favorites #2

We made it to Friday, and Good Friday at that. I am so glad that Aaron gets a long weekend for the holiday and we get to spend a little extra time with him. Anyway, it’s time for some of my favorite things from this week. Eyeshadow: Did you know that you can apply eye shadow […] Read more…

Music and Babies

Today Austin and I went to a Kindermusik class. It was a free trial class that they had been calling me to schedule for months, so why not try it out. Now having been around music all my life, and even working for Gymboree Play and Music, I understand the importance of music and development. […] Read more…

Productive Morning = Productive Day

Mornings can be hard, especially if I go to bed way too late or Austin has a wakeful night. How I start my morning is usually indicative of how my day is going to be. If I get up and turn the TV on while still in my pajamas, chances are I am not going […] Read more…

Baby-Led Weaning

Baby-Led Weaning is a method of introducing solids to your baby letting them “do-it” themselves instead of being spoon fed by adults. I started Austin on pureed baby food and spoon fed him, but after a month or two he was no longer interested in the spoon unless he could hold it and do it […] Read more…

Girls Night Out!

Saturday night was girls night out. After a productive day at home, doing projects around the house in-between Austin’s naps,  I had a nice girls night with some friends at Sarah’s Vineyard, a local winery. Nothing like an excuse to get dressed up and wear my fun, leopard print blazer from Victoria’s Secret. I have never […] Read more…
