Pregnant with my third baby, we have decided to find out the sex of our baby before birth. We did this with our first two babies (both girls) and really enjoyed being able to know and plan and connect with our babies in the last few months of pregnancy. It seems to me though, that more and more couples are deciding to wait to find out the sex of their baby until birth. There are plenty of pros & cons for each scenario, of course. Even though I completely understand the reasons for wanting to wait, finding out ahead of time was for sure the best decision for us! Click to read through the reasons to find out and reasons to wait…

I’ve made it a personal mission in our home to eat as local as we can; as healthy as we can, without going on any fad diets or sacrificing on taste. We love food around here and I’m a self-confessed traditional food junkie. Traditional as in getting back to the roots of delicious, REAL food.
Which is why I don’t think that Halloween has to mean denying our little ones of some delicious treats, especially when there are ways to make them without all of the sugar and empty white carbs! I’ve put together some of my favourite recipes and a couple of my own, from my family to yours! Whether you’re celebrating your baby’s 1st Halloween or if you have more than one crawling and/or toddling about, these are the treats that you can feel good about letting them indulge in, yourself included. (Stage 3 eaters and up.)
Have a happy, safe, delicious and most importantly magical Halloween!

My husband and my son like to go to the park together. It is quickly becoming their little tradition. When he came back the other day with a bunch of adorable photos, I just had to ask him about this special quality time they share. Here are his responses…

Ok, so this may not be the most life-changing parenting advice you’ll ever hear, but I guarantee you’ll appreciate it: VISIT THE ZOO IN THE FALL!
Yesterday, our family took a little trip to the zoo. We were crossing our fingers for nice weather and lots of animal sightings, and boy, did the zoo deliver! It was a perfect day for a zoo trip! The weather was beautiful. (In the 60s!) The zoo was NOT busy at all. There were no lines. And the animals were gladly in display. In other words, a fall visit to the zoo is the way to do it!

Mommies are wonderful and we talk about them often. Moms do a special job that no one else can do quite like they can. But Daddies are pretty wonderful too, and it’s nice to take note of the special things that they do also. Like this past Friday night when I went out for a girl’s night with a friend, and my husband took our daughter on a special date.
