Every night, when I get our baby ready for bed, I slip her into her favorite pair of footie pajamas–and I can’t help but smile.
Year after year, baby after baby, there is one memory that will always come to mind when I think back on this time of raising my children.
And that’s how much I love a good pair of footie pajamas.

My kids have always had sleep issues. I don’t have the kind of babies who drift easily off to sleep. I have the kind of babies that you have to rock and nurse and hold and maybe, just maybe, if I’m very careful, I can place them in the crib and tip-toe backwards out of the room before they wake up.
The holidays are here and if you’re anything like me you’ve already been decorating for Christmas, getting all of the holiday movies out of storage and delighting in eggnog lattes. :) To continue the holiday spirit, I am sharing 30 baby name ideas with you inspired by the season!!
When it comes to raising our son and doing household chores, my husband and I try to share the workload as evenly as possible–from tag teaming diaper changes, feedings, to early wake-up calls. Of course, there are some days when my husband comes home exhausted from working 24 hours, so I’ll take on more of the work (and vice versa). But overall we have found a system that works for us.
Here are some ways my husband and I divide childcare duties and tips when it comes to sharing the work:
It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving nearly a week away. While I am carefully planning our Thanksgiving menu, I’m letting my little one’s get in on the Thanksgiving fun with some decor for their kids’ table. My girls love to paint and I am planning a fun and interactive kids table for them on Thanksgiving Day (I’ll share more next week) so I wanted them to help me personalize their table with some fun placemats.
These were not only fun for them to make (and get their hands dirty) but they will also double as a coloring mat for them during Thanksgiving dinner.
