Coffee Filter Butterflies

Do you remember making these back in Pre-School?! I came across a pack of coffee filters in our cupboards while I was cleaning, and thought what am I supposed to do with these! We used to have a real coffee maker but now we have a Keurig. I decided that they could just go in […]

Potty Training: 101

I swear, this was probably the most challenging part of motherhood to date LOL. I think I expected it to be a little easier than I thought so maybe that didn’t help me. I also felt like it was more emotionally draining than I thought it would be as well. But when I look back […]

Paint Tape Snowflakes

It’s that time of year where I need to find fun things to keep us busy INDOORS. As much as we love winter and snow, we also miss being able to get outside every day! I decided to check our craft basket and find something we could do. It was a huge success and I […]

Favorite Baby Items (Happy Eight Weeks Payton Jeanne!)

It’s hard to believe that Payton is eight weeks old! It’s been a whirlwind becoming a mom of two. Each day is different, and some days are better than others of course! I’ve had several moms ask me what some of my favorite things are that I use for Payton, so I decided to make […]

Helping You and Your Toddler Transition With a New Baby

It’s been three weeks since our little Payton entered this crazy world! It has been quite the adjustment being a stay-at-home mom with two kids, but I think we are finally getting the hang of things. I will be totally honest, for the first couple weeks it was absolutely “survival mode.” As in one day […]

Payton Jeanne: Birth Story

“For this child I have prayed, and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart.” 1 Samuel 1:27 The last week of my pregnancy I was pretty grouchy… just being honest! I was so uncomfortable, barely sleeping, and the waiting game was driving me a little nuts. I kept telling myself I knew Payton […]

Binky Training: 101

First of all, if you are about to try and ween your little one off of their pacifier (we call Carter’s his binky), I am already sending prayers. This process has had me just as exhausted as Carter was! But we are starting to get the hang of things, so I’d love to share a […]

Tips for Bringing Your Toddler to Mass

I wish there was an exact answer on how to keep your kids fully entertained during mass when they are so young!  But I will say there are tips and tricks that can help your little ones stay sane during church.  Jeff and I were nervous about bringing Carter to Christmas Eve mass because our […]

Carter’s First Haircut

I think my first-time-mom syndrome kicked in just a bit on this one.  For the longest time Carter’s hair has been getting in his face constantly, and it was driving Jeff nuts.  I never had a problem with just swiping it out of his eyes, but Jeff thought it was getting too long.  We decided […]

Finger Painting

Even though there is no snow by us quite yet, it sure feels like winter.  We were cooped up inside yesterday, and our usual toys and books were starting to bore Carter!  I looked around our house to see what else we could do and I remembered we had some finger paint in our craft […]
