3-Day Potty Training With Free Printable

Potty training is most parent’s least favorite part of the early years. In my experience, each child trains differently. Some children are excited and ready to train, while others are pretty reluctant. We have been trying to train our toddler for some time now. Just the other day, I came across this awesome 3-day plan and knew I had to share it with you here…

Adventures with First Foods

We just started Macks on solids at the beginning of the month. At six months, I thought he was really ready for solids. He was always reaching for my food and trying to put it in his mouth and took a huge interest when he would sit with us at the table during dinner time. 

8 Beginner Chores for Toddlers

As your baby grows, they become more and more of their own little person. With that, comes learning about responsibility and taking care of yourself. With our girls, we have tried our best to teach them how to clean up after themselves, at a pretty early age. Somewhere around 18 months, our girls were old enough to understand the basics of chores, and could easily do them with our help. If you are wondering where to start, consider one of these eight chores…

Magical Moments from My First Summer as a Father

This summer has been unlike any other! While the weather has been amazing here in the Pacific Northwest (not always a guarantee), I’ve also spent my first summer as a father. It has exceeded every expectation I could have ever hoped for.

We’ve spent family time at the park, started swimming lessons, taken family trips, and watched as my son grows up right before our eyes. We’re just weeks away from celebrating his first birthday, and he’s steps away from walking.

It truly has been an amazing summer — here’s four reasons why.

Magical Moments from Macks' Sixth Month

Macks is six months old! This month brought so many favorite moments for me. I’m watching as Macks is forming his own little personality. He loves to be held, entertained by his sisters, and is just starting to figure out how to be mobile. I’m treasuring these last few bits of summer that I have with all three of my children before two of them go off to school. I know that Macks will miss having them around during the day because he has really loved all of the things that they do to make him laugh. Most of my best memories of this month are with Macks and his sisters playing with one another. Check out some of my favorite moments from Macks’ sixth month!
