Just Chillin': Adorable Disney Hoodies and Tees

I don’t want to be the one to break it to you, but fall is around the corner. The great thing about fall, though, is that we get to keep using a few clothing items from the summer if we get creative (and if they still fit). We can also use fall items in the summer for those unusually cool summer nights.

Disney Store offers an awesome selection of tees and hoodies that will have your little one looking cute this fall. Layers are always fun, and since we never know what to expect with the fall weather, layers are definitely a smart way to go. Check these out and find an adorable combo that will keep your cutie pie comfortable and cute this fall.

Our New Breakfast Favorite: Paleo Pancakes

I am not a great cook and have a really hard time finding inspiration when it comes to healthy meals for my toddler. I found a recipe on the ever faithful Pinterest while looking for paleo recipes for myself. It was a recipe for pancakes that had ingredients in it that I always have and seemed fairly easy. My type of recipe. I tried the recipe, not expecting much, and surely not anticipating that my toddler would approve. To my surprise, he loved them and devoured them.

Here is the recipe for Baylor’s new favorite breakfast, paleo pancakes.

Happy Birthday, Bee!

Bee turned two years old yesterday, and Ken and I celebrated by returning home early from a kid-free getaway to sing her three rounds of “Happy Birthday” over bacon and eggs and the love of her doting grandmothers.

We chose to forgo a party this year, and instead, Bee’s grandmothers spoiled her for a few days with sidewalk chalk and birthday lunches and trips to the zoo. She enjoyed tea parties in a new pint-sized picnic basket and practiced her letters and numbers in the setting sunshine…

10 Signs That Mommy Needs a Time-Out

Motherhood is a beautiful thing, but every once in a while I find myself absolutely exhausted, wondering where in the world I will find the energy to keep up with my kids. Motherhood has this way of tapping into every part of us. Moms have to mange a laundry list of responsibilities, while also finding the time to engage with their children in activities that are fun. It can be tiring work.

Becoming a "Big Cousin"

Our family is still on a serious high after welcoming my nephew to our family a couple of days ago. Our family is so close knit that a new cousin for Baylor might as well be a new sibling. A new baby means that he isn’t the “baby” of the family anymore. I worried he would have a hard time, but he is adjusting to all of this change like such a champ while also loving the new role of “big cousin.”
