Baby in Bloom: Springtime with Judah!

Now that the warmer weather has finally arrived, we are thrilled to be able to take Judah outside to enjoy this beautiful, blooming springtime. In addition to Judah’s first flight, we had an extra special opportunity this weekend when we got to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom for the last weekend of the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. It was a positively stunning display and was the first time really since Judah was born that he got to see and experience the beauty and warmth of early springtime.

Here are our favorite photos from our lovely morning visit to the cherry blossoms!

Finding The Time To Simply Play

I have been having a really hard time with time. It seems like there aren’t enough hours in the day. It seems like just minutes after we wake up the day has passed and it is time to go to sleep and do it all over again. All this means is, that I am struggling to slow down and find the time to really have special playtime with Baylor. Not that we don’t play but I haven’t been able to make playtime super special like I normally do.

Packing a Diaper Bag for Two: Tips and Tricks

Recently I realized that in the next couple of months I’ll be packing a diaper bag for not only one, but two little ones. My daughter is still in diapers and also requires some toddler essentials when we’re out. And a newborn? Well…newborns require a lot of gear. I started feeling a little bit overwhelmed at the prospect of packing a diaper bag for two kids – would all of that stuff even fit in one bag? So, I decided to do a trial run and pack my bag with all the essentials for a newborn and a toddler, and it ended up being a great success! I definitely had to pare things down from when I had my daughter and would bring along everything except the kitchen sink for even a simple outing to the grocery store, but I think it will be much better this way. I still managed to pack all the essentials to keep myself prepared, but not over-prepared. I figure, I can always leave some emergency rations in my car! Take a look in my bag and see what I packed along with a few tips and tricks!

10 Tips For Taking Baby To Disney

When I first saw that my cousin, Jacquelyn of j&j brusie photography, had taken her three-year-old son and not-even-four-month daughter on a Disney vacation, my first thought was one of incredulity.

What? I thought to myself. A baby to Disney? That would be torture!

But as it turns out, Jacquelyn and her family had a wonderful three-day trip to Disney–instead of the squalling, whining, exhausting fest I would be prone to imagine (I’m a fearful kind of mom, I guess), their family got to experience the fun and magic that makes Disney the stuff of memories that last a lifetime.

And although Jacquelyn is the adventurous, calm mom that would think of taking a baby to Disney in the first place, she also is passing along some tips for other moms for making a trip to Disney with baby picture-perfect.
