Holidays just keep getting better and better. As Audrey grows, so does her ability to engage and appreciate different traditions at each holiday. This past weekend we celebrated a beautiful Easter with our family. We hunted Easter Eggs, played with family, talked and babbled all the way through church (this child was not very reverent!) […]
You’re pregnant or you just gave birth to your baby boy or girl. Your child is the center of your world and you want the absolute best for him or her from the very start. But where do you start? On Saturday, May 3, Woman’s Hospital will host its semi-annual Baby Grand event to […]
After driving 12 hours with a 6-month old, I wasn’t sure how the rest of our road trip would go. If you missed the driving part, check out the first blog about our road trip here. I worried that Audrey would be thrown off her schedule, that she wouldn’t sleep well in the hotel or […]

But with dyes, chemicals and other non-organic ingredients in those pre-packaged foods, many moms are choosing to make […]
So, no one told me how impossibly cute and amazingly challenging introducing food can be! Our little Audrey has entered a new phase – solid food. Boy, oh boy.
It feels as though we are entering a stage with Audrey that every day there will be something new, something different and something exciting. We are out of the newborn, lie around and sleep most of the day stage, and we are moving into the “something needs to occupy her attention AT ALL TIMES” stage! […]
Well, we did it. We survived our first baby illness. Little Audrey had the flu and was such a champ the whole time! You wouldn’t have even known she was sick had it not been for the fever. She smiled through the doctor appointments, giggled through the lab swabbing her nose for RSV and flu, […]
