Development Milestone – Where did my baby go?

Throughout pregnancy, we track baby’s development and focus timing in short trimesters. After baby’s born, we watch as the developments speed by.

Baby and I have planted flowers, her father coached her first ever attempt at soccer, and our latest adventure was attending cooking school. Our local Whole Foods Market has a fabulous [...]

The Year of the “Big”s

Two years ago, I wrote a post to my daughter, PP, for her 2nd birthday. I was inspired by other fellow bloggers that wrote birthday wishes to their kids. I think it is such a sweet gesture & something that you can keep for your child. So this year, I wanted to write about PP’s ”big” [...]

Connecting: Now and Then

My girls and I do a lot of things together. We connect through every day activities; we cook (KK stirs), we clean (Emmers does laundry – hooray!), we eat together (sometimes not very neatly), we shop together, etc… In a lot of ways, I think it’s easier to connect with them now, mainly because, well, [...]

Bundles, Bumps & Babies! #3

Huskies are a Girl’s Best Friend!   Look at this pair!  Ever since “Ms Amanda” arrived home from the hospital 18 months ago, she and her best friend “Jax”  have been inseparable.   For those of us who are first time expectant parents, but already  ”pet parents” it is often a worry to anticipate the introduction of the new bundle to [...]

Falling in Love – How young is too young?

Being so close to Valentine’s Day, it seems very fitting that we share this story from Graco’s extended family member, Shawn Byrne, Director of Supply Chain. You may remember Shawn shared a very funny first day of kindergarten with us here. So when I heard the latest excerpt in the book of excitement that is [...]
