Our schedule has been very busy lately with work, traveling, church, soccer and school back in session. Sometimes it’s difficult to keep up a healthy lifestyle when you’re juggling so many things.

Kidstir Cooking Kits: Educational Fun in the Kitchen

Kidstir Cooking Kits Review

I love it when I come across something that excites me this much.  I can’t express enough how enthusiastic I am about Kidstir cooking kits.  This last month, Judah and I had a blast together in the kitchen where he learned cooking skills through his personal cookbook from Kidstir. Kidstir is a start-up company, run […]

Can you believe Simon is almost one year old!?  He turned 11 months on March 17th, and now we are just a couple of weeks away from his first birthday! Here he is at 9 months (since I haven’t done an update since he turned 8 months old). And, 10 months. Still no teeth!  What […]

Tots in the Kitchen: Build Personal Pizzas

Let your kids build their own personal pizzas by SeededAtTheTable.com

Let your kids build their own personal pizzas, while you spend priceless face-to-face moments with them. Face to face time in the kitchen with my kids is very important to me.  It’s one of the reasons I re-branded last February, and it’s also the reason when we were looking for a house to buy last […]

We traveled for two weeks in November for a theology conference in Baltimore followed by Thanksgiving in North Carolina.  Judah was […]

Halloween Judah

Have you recovered yet from Halloween?  Our trick or treating was just last night, because of the nasty weather on Thursday.  Because of that, paired with all of the other fall festivities we’ve been attending, we are somewhat thankful Halloween is finally over. Don’t get me wrong.  It was fun.  And, we have a TON […]

We drove up to Michigan for Ben’s fall break and spent time with my family, enjoying the beautiful fall that only Pure Michigan has to offer.   What did we do while there?  Let’s take a quick look… Judah got some quality kid time with his little cousin. We attended a fall festival in my […]

Today’s post is an unusual and special post.  I wish I had more time to put into it, because it is honoring the most important person in my life – my husband, Ben.  I made him Oatmeal Creme Pie Ice Cream Sandwiches. Thanks to the hard-working Amanda (I Am Baker), a group of bloggers and […]

Simon is 4 Months Old!

Yep, this is definitely delayed as Simon turns 5 months old next week. Oops! And, this was the best shot I could get of him for his 4 month “photo shoot”. Anyway, we are having the time of our lives with this little man. He is such a good-natured sweet boy. Best yet? He likes […]

Saturday Seeds + A Word About Bullies

Preschool

Judah started school this week.  His first day, he was excited, then nervous, then excited again, then scared again.   On the drive there, he mentioned how Daniel Tiger was scared about school, too.  That seemed to help. When we arrived and walked into his classroom, his fears immediately subsided once he met his nice […]

Ok, seriously, is my baby boy already over 3 months old?  What happened to my little newborn?? Simon is already 1 1/2 weeks past his 3 month birthday.  He is wearing 6 month size clothes (still some 3 months, too) and has lost some of his hair.  :)  He is the sweetest little thing in […]

shattered iphone

I did it.  I shattered my iPhone. Last week, after five fabulous long years of owning various iPhone models, and after approximately 5.6 billion times of dropping each of them with no damaging results, I finally broke the screen. It looked like a spiderweb and, fittingly enough, I felt like I was caught in a […]

Judah’s Big Boy Room

Big Boy Room

Judah’s big boy room reveal is finally here!  His room was one of the first we completed in our new home, because we wanted to make sure it was done before Simon arrived.  It was very bare bones to begin with, because we didn’t have a bed for him!  Before we moved into our house, […]

Happy 4th of July weekend!  We celebrated Thursday night by shooting fireworks at a friends’ house.  What did you do? Last weekend my parents drove 13 hours from Michigan to visit us for just two days.  They are freaks, I know.  But, I also love them and they are the best grandparents in the world!!  […]

Simon is 2 Months Old!

Judah Simon 2 Month

Simon is growing so quickly! How can I slow down time? #nevergrowupsimon Last week he had his 2 month check up, shots and all.  We actually have to go back tomorrow for more shots, because I have this idea in my head that if my baby is given more than two shots during one visit, […]

Simon is 1 Month Old! + Very Cute Video

Simon really turned one month old on the 17th, which means I’m a little late with this update.  I’m not sure if I’ll do updates every month, but it is kind of fun to share with you and keep this little journal of his growth. He is growing like crazy.  We haven’t had a doctor’s […]
