My Baby is a YoBaby!

YoBaby Yogurt

My baby just turned one this month! Can you believe it?! She's the baby of our family and I refuse to call her a toddler just yet. She's still OUR baby! As with her brothers and sister I always read labels, try hard give them things that are healthy for them and try to do the things that are best for them but also work for our family. Annie's birthday cake was the first time she had the taste of anything sweet. We all need treats once in a … [Read more...]

Happy Halloween from Baymax and MOGM! #BigHero6 #MeetBaymax

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! It's a cold and rainy day here in Michigan but I took the kids to an indoor event earlier today. We also took them Trick-or-Treating last weekend so they've had their fill and won't be going out tonight. We are, instead, having a family movie and pizza night! I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Halloween and hope your little ones are enjoying the day! (If you've not heard about Baymax and Big Hero 6, read about it … [Read more...]

Family Time WW

It's been quite a while since I've posted a Wordless Wednesday. Since Annie's birth things have been busy and I've been adjusting to three little ones. I (sometimes) think I am getting my routine down. ;) I wanted to share some recent pics of the kids and hubby! Top left: Addy and LA at the park last week. They had so much fun and I'm so glad the weather has finally gotten nicer! Top right: Annie on Mother's Day at nearly 3 months old -- yes, … [Read more...]

Annie’s Unexpected Hospital Stay

Annie under Lights

If you read Annie's birth story, you know that she was kept in the hospital longer than we expected. We were planning on being released Wednesday morning. We were planning on being released together but that did not happen. For the first time as a parent, I experienced how heartbreaking it is to be released from the hospital without your baby. I was released Wednesday morning, as expected. Although I stayed with Annie I was still pretty upset … [Read more...]

Welcome Baby Annie!


Well, I've been offline for over two weeks now. I announced on Instagram that baby Annie arrived but I haven't posted about it. Our precious baby girl arrived February 17 in the evening. We've been on a roller coaster ride since, but she's absolutely amazing and we are in love again! In the weeks leading up to Annie's arrival I experienced false labor about 3 times. I was really hesitant in waiting it out at home too long because of how fast … [Read more...]
