Remy Bea // 1 YEAR!

February 1, 2017

Guys. I can’t believe we survived a whole year with this child! She has been challenging since her first days at home. She has pushed me to my physical and mental limits, but we survived. I feel like this blog post should just be titled “WE SURVIVED!” I’m not even joking. For those who haven’t […]

P.S. I Love JORD (and my husband) // GIVEAWAY

January 28, 2017

In keeping with my commitment to be as open and honest as possible here on my blog, I have to say that I had no idea how having children would change my relationship with my husband. See, Chad and I had dated for four years before we decided to get hitched! So we certainly didn’t […]

January 25, 2017

Monday my last baby had her first birthday. I know! I still can’t believe it! Well, over the weekend we celebrated little Miss Bea turning the big O-N-E with a small party. (Note: It was really hard for me to throw a small party. We just don’t know how to do “small” parties in my family! […]

That time I decided not to post about Remy Bea turning 11 months.

January 10, 2017

Guys, I’ve had a draft for Remy Bea’s 11 month update in process for, like, weeks. And… well, I just can’t. Because other than her being a lot more mobile as of late, not much has changed. Actually, here’s what has changed since her 10 month update: She is eating even more than before, which […]

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 […]

For those who have followed along to a couple of sporadic updates on Facebook and Twitter, Ari was admitted to Akron Children’s Hospital on Tuesday morning.

“Christmas just doesn’t work out for me.”

December 27, 2016

This, my friends, is a tale of Christmas. While I watched joyous friends and acquaintances posting pictures of their Christmases on Facebook, we were knee-deep in cleaning. I mean that quite literally, as I decided to wash the carpets in our house on Christmas Day. Because, well, our Christmas didn’t work. Heck, it never seems […]

Kringle’s Inventionasium // Christmas in Cleveland

December 13, 2016

A couple of months ago, at Ari’s fourth birthday party, my aunt brought up a local Christmas event she likes to take her kiddos to  — Kringle’s Inventionasium! And she invited us to join them. I wasn’t quite sure what this whole thing was about, but we were promised a fun, and memorable, time! Located […]

November 21, 2016

Oh, hi, Monday! On Friday night I happened to find myself alone, with my laptop for, like, an hour. So I started drafting some blog posts — the first of which was this here Weekly Mantra. Since I was riding on a high from our fun zoo day on Friday (holla, 73 degree day in […]
