Meet the Newest Addition

Meet the Newest Addition

She finally came! Sunday, June 5th at 6:08 in the morning, Eleanor Rosamund Grace made her 9 pound 3 ounces debut into this world. :) Labor went well and fast and Joe was absolutely amazing at encouraging and being a strong arm to lean on and willing hand to hold. This past week and a half, we have been learning a lot about Eleanor and she about us
Six Months Later

Six Months Later

Hello World, I know, I know, save the comments on how long it's been...lets see....six months? I know because our darling little Eleanor is about to be a half a year old! I can't believe it. Time has flown so fast. However, I have now made a new commitment, (inside story, kinda a dare) and there will be more content coming here soon. I also plan to
5 Ways to Keep Baby Happy in the Car

5 Ways to Keep Baby Happy in the Car

Hello World! Sorry for the late post. My family and I were on vacation last week, and this blog is not well-read enough to merit taking time out of that to write a post. :) That being said, since we spent a good deal of our time in the car, I have figured out many ways of keeping our little free-spirited 7-month-old relatively happy in the car. Hop
Sensory Games for Eleanor!

Sensory Games for Eleanor!

Hello World! Well...I know it's been a little over a week. I wanted to write this post on Friday but what with a huge cookie order, writing has been put on the back burner. But still, not too bad considering a year went by once between posts. ;) So, the other day I was browsing Pinterest and came across an activity I thought Eleanor would like. Bas

Ditching New Year's Resolutions for Life Resolutions, Part One

Hello world! The eighth of January has rolled around and with it, resolve to keep resolutions is fading fast. I know, because it's what has happened to me year after year in the past. This year however, I didn't make any. Through a combination of not having enough time, and not wanting it to be just a New Year's Resolution but a Life Resolution, I

Teething Tips-How to Survive

Hello World! So Eleanor is now fully in the stages of teething....I know, rough. Symptoms include heavy drooling, gnawing on anything she can get her hands on, sore bottom, Nagasaki nappies, and two tiny little teeth poking out from her bottom gums. I have heard that if we, as adults, were to go through infant teething, we would not be able to stan

How to Ditch New Year's Resolutions, Part 2

I'm never going to yell at my kids again! I will read my Bible every day... I will change my outlook on life! We will spend more time together as a family. All these resolutions sounds great and wonderful! But they are again, point blank statements and leave no room for grace. No room for grace means that eventually, one day, all chaos will break l
Lovely Liquid Lipstick

Lovely Liquid Lipstick

Hello World! Today, I am going to review the Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick. I have been interested in liquid lipstick for a while, but I hadn't mustered up the courage to actually buy one until the other day. Some of the worries I had were that I wasn't going to find a cheap drugstore one that would deliver, that it would dry out my lip
