5 Things My Baby Boy Does That Melt My Heart

It might be the holidays, or perhaps the fact that my little baby will be turning two next month that has me all mushy gushy inside. He will do something so sweet that will have me on the verge of tears.

Oh Andres, please don’t grow up.

Here are 5 things my little one does that absolutely melt my heart:

Make Your Own Minnie Mouse Christmas Ornament!

Each year, I love adding a new ornament to our Christmas tree, and this time decided to go for a little Disney DIY project.

This Minnie Mouse ornament was super easy to make (especially since I’m not a big DIY’er) and my little loved the final result. Below are the simple steps on how you can create your own Minnie (or Mickey) Christmas ornament.

Our little guy had been sick all last week with a cold, including a fever two days in a row. The coughing and stuffy nose caused him to wake up several times throughout the night, at which point we just brought him to our bedroom so we could monitor him. He’s always such a happy baby and seeing his smile disappear for a few days broke my heart.

The Joy of Cousins

There’s something so magical about the bond my son has with his cousins. It always becomes much more evident during the holidays, when our family gets together. Even though he doesn’t see all of them as often, when they do, it’s like a sudden connection. It’s hard to describe for example, the joy in my son’s eyes when he sees his cousin Isabella. From the moment they get together, the fun begins.

Here are a few tips to getting the perfect toddler haircut in time for the holidays:
