Baby's Day Out
Posted by Selena Burgess
With our first, we were so excited at having finally getting pregnant after being told for years that we couldn’t have babies. Our excitement was so huge that we just had to know if we were going to have a boy or a girl. No surprises. Having a baby was enough of a (much welcomed), surprise.
With our second however, things were a little more relaxed. We decided to wait to find out and with that came the purchase of gender neutral baby clothes and other necessities. If you, like me, are waiting to find out if its a boy or a girl, then these gender neutral picks from the Hundred Acre Wood will have you smiling and totally prepared for the arrival of your precious new baby!

During September through November, my daughters and I spent three months abroad in Palestine. It wasn’t anything I’ve ever done before, but I was appreciative of the opportunity and excited about the adventure. It would be Zaynab’s first time ever visiting there. During this past year, she traveled around the world to many amazing new places. While in Palestine, we stayed with my in-laws living in Jenin for majority of the time. Every couple of weeks or so, we’d get the opportunity to visit my sister living closer to Jerusalem, an hour and a half away. Exploring the old city of Jerusalem is one of my favorite things to do, so I was incredibly eager to share that experience with Z for the first time. Adventure awaits!

Our annual family Christmas tree hunting adventure is one of my favorite traditions that we do each year, and this year was no exception. It was even more fun than last year since Fern was old enough to run around and participate in the tree choosing process. She loved the tree farm, running around touching every tree and even hugging them. Yep…my daughter is a tree hugger. Check it out:

The day before Thanksgiving, I packed up the kids and headed out to a local family farm. On the agenda was visiting the field of sheep, where a few new baby lambs had just been birthed, and learning about how chickens are raised for eggs and to eat. I went with the notion that the older kids, ages 6 and 8, would be the most interested in the farm, but it turns out Hayden was the one who seemed to get the most enjoyment out of watching the animals. Here’s a little peek at our day on the farm.

Fern’s second birthday is right around the corner in January. We were trying to think of an extra special way to celebrate, and what better way than hanging out at the happiest place on earth? Yep! We’re going to Mickey’s house!
