Caught Snoozing! 13 Sweet Sleeping Baby Pics

Have you ever seen those photos of sleeping babies? They’re always in the middle of the playroom, asleep amidst all their toys, or they’ve fallen asleep during mealtime, sometimes even falling straight into their plate of spaghetti.

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…
