Why Haircuts Are a Big Topic of Conversation in Our House

Our son was born with a serious head of hair. Flock of Seagulls type hair. So much so, nurses at the hospital were stopping by our room just to see the baby with “all the hair.”

Needless to say, haircuts are quite the topic of discussion in our house.

The Golden Moment I'd Been Hoping For

Today I came out of my bedroom to find my two little girls in the living room, lying on their stomachs next to each other, with a big animal book spread out in front of them.

Liam’s Spiderman Party

My son recently turned 3 years old. Originally I wasn’t going to have a big party for him, since we’ve had big parties the past two years (a nautical first birthday and a safari second birthday). Throwing parties takes a lot of work, so I was planning on keeping it simple this year — but then he ever so sweetly asked if he could have a Spiderman party, and I couldn’t say no!

Thank goodness Spiderman is pretty popular right now, so planning it was a cinch. I was able to find a lot of Spiderman goods at our local dollar store and we chose to have pizza (easiest party food ever!) for everyone to eat. Since it’s also summertime in Miami, we decided to have a lot of outside water games for the kids to enjoy, including a big inflatable water slide.

Liam is recently obsessed with superheroes and his favorite is, obviously, Spiderman. It really warmed my heart to see my son so happy.

Check out a few snapshots from Liam’s Spiderman party.

Telling My 4-Year-Old I'm Having a Baby

I don’t really remember telling my oldest daughter that we were having a second child. She wasn’t quite two when we found out, and I’m not sure she really understood the whole thing (although she loved going along to hear the baby’s heartbeat at all my doctor appointments).

But this time, we knew she’d understand what we were talking about.

And we really hoped she’d be excited.

My Little Mover

Thanks to Disney Baby for sponsoring this post and giving me Huggies Little Movers Diapers for free.

My daughter, at 16 months old, finally found her courage and took her first steps. I can’t tell you how excited and surprised we were when she finally decided to let go and take those steps towards her daddy. We knew for a while that she must know how to walk. She would walk all over the house, but only holding on to someone’s hands. If there was no hand to hold, she refused to budge. But something clicked recently, and she decided that she would give it a try.

When she walks, her face is priceless. She’s so happy and proud of herself. She’s the cutest little mover I ever did see, so we snapped a few photos of her walking around the house in her Huggies Little Movers diaper. Thankfully they give her the freedom to move around and explore without us having to worry about her diaper slipping off. (Don’t you hate it when that happens?)

She’s also constantly pointing to the Mickey and Minnie on the diaper and saying, “Minnieee.” She’s a fan!
