Our Perfect Day

There are very few days when we can just throw caution to the wind and spend the day exploring as a family. We always have something going on that keeps us from really being able to venture out on the few free days that we have. When we do get those rare days of complete freedom to do whatever we feel like doing, it is magical.

Our Top Toy Story Picks

My little boy is a lover of all things Toy Story. From the first time he watched he has been obsessed with it all. I can’t blame him — it is one of my favorites, too!

Here are some of our favorite Disney Baby Toy Story products that we know all of our fellow Toy Story lovers will enjoy.

A Fun Book Exchange

One of Baylor’s most favorite things to do is sit down and read books before bedtime. First I read to him, and then he takes over and reads them back in his best baby jibber-jabber.

Recently, a friend of mine invited us to join her and her little girl in a book exchange. Of course, we jumped at the opportunity, because there is nothing more fun that connecting with moms and babes in a new way.

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.

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.”
