Easter photos

Howdy friends. We had a very nice, low-key, non-religious Easter at our house. It was all about the bunny, baby. Genevieve got to wear her hand-me-down Easter dress for a little while. Until I worried it was a little chilly … Continue reading

Taking paci to college

Howdy, friends. You know what’s really mean? Trying to take your toddler’s pacifier away. I know because I tried last night. I don’t know what came over me. I had a baby with a fever (and a double ear infection, … Continue reading

My baby loves TV

Howdy, friends. So, it’s no secret that Philip and I were pretty strict with our son, Jack, and his television time. Except a few times when he was really sick and I turned on “Sesame Street” for a few minutes, … Continue reading
