Here's What You Need to Know About Getting Baby's Passport

Can you believe the holidays are sneaking up on us already? This winter we’re heading to Whistler, Canada for a big family trip including Grandma & Grandpa, my brother and his family, and us. It’s going to be an incredible time but it got us thinking about one MAJOR thing. Wyatt needs a passport.

Gone are the days of crossing the border with just a photo ID; now even he needs a passport. Which led to a some serious research about what exactly that meant. Here’s what I discovered when digging up all the things we needed.

4 Things to Know When Selecting a Guardian

Celebrating this first year with Wyatt has been an amazing experience! There have been so many wonderful memories and milestones that make us fall in love with him more every day. Which makes it impossible to think we would never be around for him. One of the last things on our minds (though it shouldn’t be) was making arrangements should something tragic happen to us.

The One Thing We Can't Shop Without

When my son was a baby, it was so easy to take him grocery shopping. He actually slept through most shopping trips. I would take the time to linger through the aisles and thoroughly enjoy the quiet time.

But then all of a sudden, around the time he hit his first birthday, he grew increasingly restless in the shopping cart. Grocery shopping was challenging, to say the least.

But then we saw it. It was no regular shopping cart–this one was special. This shopping cart looked like a race car, and my son loved it right away.

Fall is the Perfect Time to Start Family Traditions

I have to admit, this is probably one of my favorite times of year. I love living in a region where the seasons change, the air cools, and leaves undergo a beautiful transformation before piling up on our lawn. It’s also the time when families start thinking about traditions – new and old – as the holidays begin the not-so-slow creep up on us.

Why Technology Will Never Replace Actual Face Time

Technology is a pretty great thing. With my wife’s family living several states away, seeing and talking with them through video chat allows everyone to stay connected and still feel a part of Wyatt’s big moments as he grows. It’s convenient, fun, and super simple. But it still can’t replace one very important thing.
