Wordless Wednesday – She’s Sitting Up!

Annie is sitting up!

She actually started sitting up about two weeks ago but I'm just now getting around to posting this picture! It's our last experience as parents seeing our baby sit up for the first time! Bittersweet for sure! It's hard to believe baby Annie is six months old already! Where has the time gone!? … [Read more...]

Getting Back to the (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

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...]

Wordless Wednesday – Such a Joy and Honor

Baking Cookies

It's such a joy and an honor to be the mama of these little ones. I love every day with them. Every minute. Here are a few great captured moments from the past few weeks. . . Our new tradition this year was baking cookies on Christmas Eve and boy oh boy did they have fun! Here's a captured moment of LA enjoying the cookie cutting! <3 And this, my friends...is my little beauty during a special moment of smiles we shared. Her smile … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday: Christmas Tree and One Hat, Two Hat

Christmas Tree

With the way I've been feeling lately I've not gotten much done at all. We typically decorate for Christmas, at the latest, the weekend after Thanksgiving. We JUST got out tree up this past Sunday. Yes, only 10 days before Christmas. I'm so glad it's up though...I love Christmas decorations and I love watching the kids enjoy the lights and all! Here's a pic of the little ones by the tree: Yes, I took it with my iPhone and it was during the … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – My Little Ones in Firehats

Kids in Fire hats

We went out for lunch last week after LA's s doctor appointment. They place we went to had a fire truck/firefighter theme and the kids' meals came with these fire hats. They loved them. I tried and tried to get a good photo of both of them and failed miserably. They were both tired, hungry and grouchy so that didn't help. Here's what I did get:   … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – My Little Girl

Addy and her camera

Addy is nearly 20 months old. She's very active and intrigued by so many things. One thing she seems to love is the camera...and I don't mean me taking pictures of her with my camera, I mean she wants to hold the camera and do it herself. I took this photo with my phone so not the best quality, but maybe I have a photographer in the making here? And...am I the only mama who recycles big brother's pajamas for a little girl? I'm telling on … [Read more...]

(Not So) Wordless Wednesday at the Cider Mill

LA at the Cider Mill 2013

Cider Mills are a big thing here in Michigan. I never knew much about them until I moved here and found out that it is a MUST DO activity in the fall. My husband and I have gone every fall since we've been together and it's become a great tradition. We love taking the kids! We recently went and met my in-laws there. The cider mill has so much more than apples and cider...they have pony rides for the kids, a small petting farm, fudge, ice cream … [Read more...]

(Not So) Wordless Wednesday – Mitten Moms Conference

Adoba Hotel, Dearborn

This past weekend I went to the Mitten Moms Conference, which is a conference for Michigan bloggers. I was really looking forward to the conference as I don't know many bloggers in the area. After attending BlogHer in July (I still need to write about that, don't I?) I was pretty excited to see the differences between the large conference and this smaller conference. I can tell you that I LOVE smaller conferences so much more than large ones! I … [Read more...]

A Return of Wordless Wednesday

Addy sleeping

I've been a bit behind since I went to the Monsters U premiere but I am trying to get back into the swing of things so I am back with a (not so) Wordless Wednesday post today! We were out of town this past weekend and I went to check on Addy during her nap and found my little princess sleeping like this....leg crossed, arms behind her head and I thought it was adorable! Not the best quality pic since it was taken with my phone in a not so … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – Hearing Trains


We were at my mama's house this past weekend and my niece was there, too. She is three weeks younger than LA and seeing her with LA and Addy is just precious. They all have a blast and when they heard a train they ran to the door to watch for it! (They can normally see trains in the far back left of this picture when they pass.) I had to snap their picture, they looked too cute! <3 … [Read more...]

A Mother’s Day (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Lilac Tree

We went back to my hometown for Mother's Day to spend time with my mom. We had a great time and I wanted to share some pics with you from our time there! The lilac tree is something that I always relate to "back home". For as long as I can remember, my mom has had lilac trees in her yard. She's always loved the smell, the colors and I've come to relate them to her and home. <3 Both LA and Addy were off of their schedules while we were out … [Read more...]

(Not Quite) Wordless Wednesday

Addy 14 months

Here are some pictures we took this week of the little ones! Addy had her first Popsicle...she only ate a few bits and was done but had fun with it while it lasted! We also received our head bands from Michele at Two Brothers Blankets! We LOVE them!!!!  I am still working with her on keeping them on though! ;) We were finally able to play outside!!!  The weather here in Michigan has been less than pleasant up until the past few days … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – My Baby Girl

Beautiful Addy

I thought she looked so cute when she just sat down to relax in the chair! If you follow me on Instagram you've probably seen the photo on the right! I love it! She's been doing this thing with her lips for a bit now! Many times she'll say "uh-oh" and leave her lips in that position for a bit! It's darling! No, she doesn't have lip gloss on, it's one of the Instagram options when posting and it really popped those lips, didn't it!? ;)   … [Read more...]

Wise Sayings in Wordless Wednesday

How to love a child

I thought I would take a break from my regular Wordless Wednesday posts (pictures of the little ones) and do something a bit different. These are all sayings that have either touched my heart or made me laugh so I thought I would share! The little ones grow up way to fast. Enjoy them when they are little, have fun with them, love them. I love the reminders from this one! This saying comes in hand when parenting a teen! I actually sent … [Read more...]

St Patricks Day in Wordless Wednesday

St Patrick's Day Faces

I am Irish so I, of course, wanted to dress the little ones in adorable St Patrick's Day attire this past weekend! In fact, a few weeks back when we went shopping for their outfits there was one girly outfit and one t-shirt left on the rack. It was meant to be when I saw that the girly outfit was Addy's size and the t-shirt was LA's size! I was thrilled!!!   I wanted to get a great picture of them in their St Patrick's Day outfits. … [Read more...]
