Celebrating Half-Birthdays

I’ve been noticing a trend happening that many families are embracing – the celebration of baby’s half-birthday.

5 Things I Miss About the Newborn Stage

I never truly appreciated the newborn stage until I had Macks. When you’re a new mom, you learn as you go. Everything is new. But with Macks being my third child, I knew what was coming next (or at least I’d like to think that I did.)

Chalk it up to Pinterest and its extensive pregnancy photo pins. I knew I didn’t want anything elaborate. Just something sweet and simple that would be easy to complete each month. I found the perfect little chalkboard that made it all possible. Notice how I wasn’t limited to one location with my fun and mobile chalkboard prop for my month-by-month pregnancy pictures.

Motherhood: The Hard Part

It’s taken me weeks to be able to sit down and put these words to the keys. Motherhood is hard. Really hard. While I love sharing with you all the magical moments, sharing the tough stuff is what makes all of this real. Being a parent isn’t a walk in the park. It gets tough.
