Baby Memories

Your baby grows up quicker than you think, and you'll want to remember every memory. These easy scrapbook and memory-making ideas will help you record every milestone.

Celebrating Our Way

It’s so cliché, but it’s the truth; babies grow up way too fast. My little girl will turn 2 this week. I can remember so vividly the day she was born. It was a magical day that added a new ray of light to our lives. She has made our family even more complete.

Magical Moments from Macks' Eighth Month

Eight months has passed since I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy. It’s hard to believe that just eight short months ago I could hold him in my arms while he slept peacefully without making a soung. Now he’s on the move, chatting up a storm, and very rarely will fall asleep in my arms. It’s crazy how quickly these months go. Just as you begin to embrace a moment, it’s gone.

This month was full of milestones for Macks. He started crawling, pulling himself up, and two of his teeth popped through. With him on the move so much, it’s made it hard to get photos, but I managed to get a few and wanted to share my favorites.

How Our Toddler Helps Us Donate Toys

My kids have a lot of toys – you might even say they’re a wee bit spoiled when it comes to toys. That’s what happens when you have grandparents around who love you and want to grant your every desire. (We love you, abuelos!)

I don’t really mind that my kids have a lot of toys. They have fun and entertain themselves playing with their toys all the time. But sometimes it gets overwhelming. We don’t have a large house and when the toys start taking over every room, I start feeling a little suffocated.

8 Things My Baby Would Rather Play With Than His Toys

As the little brother, Macks has inherited all of the toys that his sisters played with when they were his age. I’ve only had to buy him a few toys to add to his collection. Now that Macks is sitting up on his own and crawling everywhere, it’s so much easier for him to get around and get to the toy of his choice. The only problem is that, even with a room full of toys, he still chooses to play with everything but those toys. I don’t know what it is with babies and playing with any household item they can get their hands on, but Macks proves that he doesn’t need toys, he just wants what’s laying around.

Here are Macks’ top 8 list of things he’d rather play with than his toys:

That Magical Moment

From the moment I found out I was having a second daughter, more than two years ago, I’ve dreamed of my little girls playing together.

I grew up with two younger sisters, and I have years of happy memories playing kickball in the backyard, playing paper dolls for hours on Saturday mornings, and pretending to go to gymnastic camp (thank heavens we didn’t have a dining table for years, so we could cartwheel across the dining room to our hearts’ content).

I couldn’t wait for my girls to have similar experiences.
