A few weeks ago we visited the Magic Kingdom as a family. It was Lola’s very first trip to Disneyland and our timing could not have been better given the happiest place on earth “just got happier.” Prior to giving birth we had decided that if we went to Disneyland we would at least wait until Lola was one or two. While our older daughter loves Disneyland (she’s just like her mama) we figured we probably wouldn’t enjoy it as much unless we waited. Additionally, given how difficult pregnancy was for me I knew attempting to go then wasn’t going to be in my best interest.

How often have you stopped yourself from acting like a complete goof-ball around your little ones? How may times have you gotten so caught up in the act of ‘grown-up’ parenting, daily responsibilities and the stress that comes along with it all?
Lately, those two down there have reminded me of how very important it is to just. Let. Go.

It turns out my baby is officially no longer a baby. “Pink” turned 2 last week. For some reason I was obsessed with the idea of planning a ladybug party. The thing is, I’m not all that crafty. (Pinterest gives me major anxiety!) Oh, I’ve got big ideas, but I know that when it comes down to reality, I have to keep it simple. So I did. And it the party turned out to be the perfect way to celebrate my sweet little ladybug.
If I could do these things, just about anybody can. Really.

For National Photography Month, I sat down with North Shore, Mass. professional photographer Kerry Goodwin to talk about her essential advice and newborn photography tips for parents when photographing baby and hiring a professional photographer to capture the magic of their newborn.

A few times a week after a long hard day of playing, all four of my little grubby monkeys go upstairs for a relay race of scrub-a-dub-dubbing in the tub before bedtime. Typically baby Paul is first, and he’s immediately followed by the older three, ending with my 8 year old taking a lukewarm shower.
When it’s all said it done, the kids are clean and the bathroom looks like a hurricane hit.
Baby Paul? He LOVES the tub. He kicks, he plays, he splashes and squeals. Honestly, the kid would slip and slide around in the water all night if I let him, and I probably would if I didn’t have three others waiting for their turn. Because of his tub love, I was super excited to haul out our favorite backyard blow-up pool for him to enjoy.
