Simple Crochet Baby Blanket

Simple Crochet Baby Blanket……Pregnancy nesting is a real thing.  Like, for REAL!  I now have single digit weeks to go before Baby #3 arrives, and the amount of stuff I am trying to get done in preparation is a bit insane.  It’s not even the typical scrubbing of baseboards and building furniture (that stuff is already done), it’s craft projects like crocheting blankets and newborn hats and making art for the nursery…in other words, the important stuff…

Third Pregnancy Bump Comparison Part 1

Third Pregnancy Bump Comparison…Just when we were getting the swing of life with 2 under 2, we are adding another baby to the mix, #3under4 here we come!  Our spacing turned out pretty fantastic—there are 19 months between Baby J and Baby K, and there will be 22 months (or less!) between Baby K and Baby #3.  We aren’t finding out the sex because we have a girl and a boy, so we have everything we could need either way…

Freak Show Circus Theme First Birthday for Baby K

Freak Show Circus Theme First Birthday……

My Baby Boy recently turned one and while I was drawn to the adorable circus and carnival themed parties I saw online, they just lacked that pizzazz I wanted for my birthday boy.  Especially because I had to live up to the Great Gatsby Themed First Birthday we threw for his big sister!  I knew I wanted something masculine yet cute, but also unique and maybe even a bit edgy.  I brainstormed our favorite travel locations and my mind was instantly drawn to Coney Island with its delicious hot dogs and ice cream and, of course, the Barnum & Bailey Greatest Show on Earth.  And thus was born Baby K’s Freak Show Circus themed first birthday party…

Night Wean a Co-Sleeping Baby

Night Wean a Co-Sleeping Baby…My little baby boy has slept in my arms since the day he was born. It’s been the most beautiful, comforting and lovely experience to have this special time with him. During the day my attention is split between him and his toddler sister, so I felt like this one-on-one time was really good for him. But, all good things must come to an end and I decided it was time to night wean my co-sleeper…

Dinos and Donuts 2nd Birthday Party for Baby J

Dinos and Donuts 2nd Birthday Party…My little girl recently turned two and we threw her a Dinosaurs and Donuts party!  She absolutely loves dinosaurs, and I absolutely love doughnuts, so it was a perfect combination. And it wasn’t even that hard to throw a dinosaur party with a feminine vibe…
