A Warm & Cuddly Costume for Halloween Night!

Last year, we celebrated our son’s first Halloween. After spending hours upon hours scrolling through Pinterest and online for inspiration, we finally decided on his costume—Winnie the Pooh! I feel you can never go wrong with this adorable Disney classic. It’s a great option for boys and make for the cutest pictures.

Favorite Pics from Macks' First Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

One of my favorite things about the fall is spending the weekends at all of the fall festivals that happen around town. This is our first fall in the suburbs, so we are taking full advantage of all of the festivities.

Last weekend, we went to a local farm so that my girls could pick out pumpkins and we could enjoy the gorgeous weather. I love the stage that Macks is at now, because he is so observant and always loves doing things with a lot of people around–and there is so much for him to see.

Check out some of my favorite photos of Macks at the pumpkin patch!

Six Things to Celebrate About Six Months with Margot

Our sweet Margot (pronounced Mar-go) Joan is 6 months old this week. Like every mother in the history of the universe, I can’t believe how fast the time has gone. No, but seriously. I swear I was pregnant with her for at least two years, and now she’s already 6 months old.

Can we all shed a tear really quick about the difference between these two photos!?!

5 Bilingual Halloween Books for Baby

October is here, and that means Halloween is coming up. I have always loved Halloween. I mean, who doesn’t love a holiday where you can dress up as whatever you want and get free candy?? Sounds like a dream to me. My whole family is definitely on board with this fun holiday.

Since we are also lovers of books, we try to read up on every holiday as it comes. It’s a great way to learn and have fun before the special celebration.

Being a bilingual family, I thought it would be fun to read some Halloween books in English and in Spanish that showcase different cultures. Here are some really good ones.


Counting Down to Her 2nd Birthday

Two years ago today, I was very pregnant and patiently awaiting the arrival of my second child. I honestly thought she might show up at any moment because I started having Braxton Hicks contractions in September. I was convinced that, although she wasn’t due until October 20th, she would make an appearance long before her due date. I was wrong.
