How We're Dealing with Tantrums

Things are getting a little louder around the house as Wyatt continues to find his voice — one hilarious noise at a time. (Anyone else experience deep growls from their little one?)

Our little guy is also starting to assert himself much more, so when he doesn’t get what he wants, he lets us know.

8 Reasons We Love Nighttime

After a lot of work, patience, and time, we finally have Soren sleeping from roughly 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. It’s amazing, especially going from waking up several times per night for months and months to sleeping through the night AND having a few hours to ourselves each evening. Getting Soren on a sleep schedule was tricky, but very much worth it.

These are the 8 reasons we love nighttime at the Wallace household:

A Big Sister's Love

It’s been a little bit over a month since my oldest daughter started kindergarten. Now that she’s in school full time, it’s just me and the two little ones for most of the week. At 2 1/2 years old, Avery is such an amazing big sister, but it’s only been in the past month that I’ve seen her relationship with Macks flourish.

Margot's First Foods

When I became pregnant with Margot, I planned on doing Baby Led Weaning when it was time for her to begin exploring solid foods. With my first two children, I made my own purees. It was fine, but it took a lot of time. The more I read about Baby Led Weaning, the more I was sold on the idea. It’s basically the idea that you skip purees and let little ones discover and try new foods on their own – a chunk of banana, a slice of apple, a cube of cheese, etc.

Recently though, I felt like Margot was ready for solid foods. She seemed hungry all the time and not entirely satisfied after each time I nursed her. To do Baby Led Weaning though, babies should be a little bit older, and able to sit up unassisted, etc. Margot is not quite there.

Last week, I went ahead and gave Margot her first food. I roasted a sweet potato in the oven and pureed it with a little breastmilk, to reach a smooth consistency. No surprise to us at all, she devoured it! She was so eager to eat and ate like a seasoned pro.

The Cutest Fall Themed Gender Reveal

Many expectnant mothers and fathers choose to find out the sex of the baby during pregnancy. Nowadays, it’s fun to come up with a creative way to announce if you’re having a baby boy or a baby girl. When my friend, Sara, posted this on Instagram, I knew I had to share it with you! It’s such a fun and festive way to reveal your baby’s gender!
