These are a few of my favorite things (updated)

I am very loyal to brands and products that I have found work for me and my family. If it makes my life easier (or makes me laugh – which is just as important!) I will use it over and over again. These are just a few of the things that get me through the…

Buncha Farmers to the rescue!

“Not Pura Vida!” Words uttered after pulling Pura Vida out of the wash this week  This week my heart sank as I pulled Pura Vida out of the wash to find it had a lingering stain. Not a clue where this could have come from, I am usually very careful with my no longer available…

My Heart and Soul

Emily & Nick: My Heart and Soul  To say Emily loves music is an understatement. When she hears a song ends she will stop whatever she is doing and will enthusiastically clap her hands. Her excitement can be seen in her face during our first MamaSteph performance but I think it started in Utero when…

World Breastfeeding Week

I thought breastfeeding was supposed to be the most natural thing in the world. I assumed it would come easy and that it would be something I could control and that would end on my terms. Like most other things, I quickly learned that breastfeeding worked best when I just went with it and followed Emily’s…

MamaSteph smiles

MamaSteph smiles  This was our very first visit to see MamaSteph, am amazing woman who sings and preforms for kids of all ages. Its blurry because it is hard to take a good photo while containing a bouncing 5 month old. This may have even been the first strum of her guitar since Emily was hooked…

No clothespins? No problem! Sunning made easy

I decided to sun a diaper recently after a diaper came out of the wash with stains leftover from a particularly messy diaper change. Sunning is a natural (and free!) way to remove stains and sanitize cloth diapers. It was a rough spring with pollen so this was the first opportunity I’ve had to sun outside and…
