Nothing compares to celebrating the holidays with children. Most of us remember the days of excitement, wonder, and expectation that filled our childhood days with joy. Scott and I are so grateful to celebrate the upcoming holidays with our two year old son, Chase. Even though, I fear, this may be the last Christmas without the pressure of hunting down the unreasonably popular, most-requested toy. So, for those of you who do have children old enough to make such requests (in some cases, demands)… This Kids Gift Guide is for you.
Lawd, help me. Chase is turning two, in a few weeks. Scott and I have already observed behaviors that can only be explained as “The Terrible Twos”. Now, I’m no expert. I have only been around children and babies for many, many years. I think the terrible twos can manifest in many different ways. And, there is no one size fits all description of it nor remedy for it. In this blog post, I’m going to share some general things I’ve learned about this critical stage of life. And, how I am literally praying my way through it!
Baby Blue is now fifteen months old! And that’s how long it’s taken to complete his bedroom makeover. As you may recall, Scott and I have done quite a few bedroom makeovers throughout the past five years. (Six makeovers for two bedrooms. But, who’s counting!) So, I guess you can say we’re slowing down a bit. However, Baby Blue finally has his very own, little boy bedroom. With a transportation theme! From firetrucks to motorcycles. Dump-trucks, trains, race cars, and seaplanes. It’s super fitting, since Baby Blue is all about, “Go! Go! Go!”
Oh, Boy! Baby Blue is ten months old! So much is happening, lately. Milestones, precious moments, and memories in the making. Scott and I (along with our loved ones) are celebrating Baby Blue’s ten month birthday with gratefulness, humility, and joy.
You didn’t think I’d leave out the family, did you? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which comes only once a year, is one of the best sales for good reason. Last week, I shared some of the 2018 Fall Fashion Trends for women, along with my top picks from the sale. The week before that, I shared my personal picks, including some classic pieces that are most popular. So, today, I’m providing my top picks from the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for the Men, Kids, and Home!
Wow. Somebody pinch me. This baby boy, who was barely the size of a football, just eight months ago, is already turning into a little person! I can’t believe that Baby Blue is eight months old. Here is an update on the little boy that is completely melting our hearts…
