Jack is 4!


It seems like it was just yesterday that Jack was born. We blinked and suddenly we have a 4 year old who has already become a big brother. My sweet, loving, smart and funny Jack turned 4 on January 11th. The boy who made me a mom will forever remain my baby in my heart and in my eyes.

Jack had a Lego party and celebrated his special day with friends and family


This year, with the help of Sticky Bellies, we decided to do something different to help commemorate Jack's birthday - we created a Birthday Poster! This fully customizable poster perfectly documents a child's important milestones, accomplishments, height and weight, favorite colors, foods, books and so much more!




The 24x36 poster is easy to fill out and the personalization options are endless. Use markers, glitter, stickers, and other fun embellishments to make this special keepsake your child's favorite.
*This keepsake product is not reusable as it is a matte paper optimized for flash photography.

Product Love: Plum Organics - Hello Meals

Dylan started eating solids last month and so far he has liked every single thing he has tried. He's had everything from sweet potatoes,  green beans, green peas, bananas, and even eggs (yolk only). While Dylan eats mostly homemade food, it's great to have tasty, natural dishes readily available. 

I recently introduced him to Plum Organics new Hello Meals. Plum Organics, a leading organic kids nutrition company, offers a wide range of nutritious, delicious meals and snacks for your entire family. Their products aim to help your entire family build healthy eating habits by introducing a diverse array of flavors, colors, textures, and super foods to your little ones early on in their lives. Inspire them to celebrate all the amazing tastes life has to offer. All their products are organic, Non-GMO, whole, and only simple ingredients are used whenever possible.


To his breakfast meals I added some extra blueberries and bananas for a extra dose of flavor. To  his dinner meal options, I added some extra veggies (broccoli and sweet potatoes) for  an extra punch of nutrition. Dylan devoured them all! Preparing them couldn't be easier. Simply add a hot water, any veggies, meats or fruits, stir, and serve.

Breakfast time! 

ABOUT HELLO MORNING AND HELLO DINNER 
Plum's all NEW products for baby, are the perfect way for little ones to warm up to new flavors and textures. Made with whole grains like quinoa & oats, organic fruits & veggies plus a hint of herbs or spices, just add hot water to create a quick, organic flavor-packed meal for babe! With two Hello Morning breakfast varieties and two Hello Dinner dinner varieties, Plum's Hello line is ideal for babies 6 months & up (stage 3). For older babies who have advanced beyond soft textures, the packets make great building blocks for a more complex dish.

Product Love: ciao! baby - Portable High Chair

What a busy holiday season it has been! We've been non stop since December 1st and as of yesterday all our festivities have ended - until Dylan's birthday in June, that is. I'm done hosting, planning and spending money for a while.  While it's always fun to celebrate with friends and family, it's sometimes gets a little bit crazy with two kids.


Since last month, we've been taking the ciao! baby portable high chair with us almost everywhere and it's been such a tremendous help! The Portable High Chair is a super convenient all-in-one, lightweight, go-anywhere chair that folds right up into its carrying bag.

Ideal for busy parents on the go, the chair can be used at family gatherings, camping, tailgating, on picnics, and while traveling. The ciao! baby folding chair has made our lives so much easier! Dylan weighed over 19lbs last month so carrying him around or holding him all the time is not always the best option. We've already moved him to a convertible car seat so bringing the infant seat with us was no longer an option. This portable high chair requires no assembly, it comes with a built-in cup holder and a clear vinyl tray cover, that easily wipes clean - it was the perfect solution.

Christmas 2014 - Part I: Personalized Holiday Crafts

As the new year begins, I can't help but look back at 2014 as one of the best of my life. This year we welcomed our second son. Dylan was born in June and filled a space in our hearts that on one else ever could.  This holiday season, I created a few crafts for ourselves and for our family that will forever help us remember how special this year was.

One of my favorite projects to date were the handprint snowmen ornaments my boys made. I customized the ornaments even more by adding some personalized satin ribbons using  my new LabelWorks Printable Ribbon Kit from Epson.
The Epson printer offers endless possibilities for personalization, from ornaments to bookmarks, wine glass name markers and gift bag ribbons, there is no limit to what you can create. Simply select from a variety of fonts, symbols, frames as well as the orientation of the text and instantly print and cut the perfect ribbon for your next project. 


Jack wanted their new ornaments to go on his tiny Christmas tree that sits on his night table. The ornaments looked perfect and the personalized ribbons made them even more special!
