Little Mover, Big Changes // Adjusting To Life With A Spirited Child

January 1, 2017

I’ll be the first to admit it — Our first born, Ari, did little to prepare us for the wild side of parenting. See, he has always been very cautious and mild-mannered. Certainly, our second child would be just as chill, right? Wrong. Oh, so, wrong! Miss Bea is a handful — has been since […]

September 4, 2016

Getting excited over seemingly ‘small’ milestones was something I laughed at before having kids. But now? Now I rejoice in watching my kids grow and learn new things. Every parent does!
