Emory on all fours

January is 2/3 over already and I have yet to get back to regular posting. If you follow along on Facebook, you may already know one of the reasons. I am tired. Baby Emory, like all my kids, had a sleep regression right at 4 months. However, this kid’s regression has been longer and far worse than either of my other children. I think it is the combination of the age appropriate regression paired with hitting several motor milestones within {Read More}

Happy New Year!


Whew! I don’t know about you guys, but we had a busy few weeks around here! I tried to spend more time “unplugged” and didn’t even sign into my blog for nearly two weeks! We spent some much needed time hanging out as a family, watching movies (both with and without the kids), and getting little things done around the house that I have had on my “to-do” list for months. I also am reading a book for fun, which {Read More}

Three Dogs, Two Cats, Two Preschoolers, One Baby, Autoimmune Diseases, Preschool, Food Allergies, & a Partridge in a Pear Tree…


It’s been a while…I know. This whole mom-of-three thing has been keeping me busy. I have so many things I want to share with you, yet life has been crazy and hasn’t let me had time to do any blogging. But I hope to slowly get back into it here soon! In fact, I actually wrote a blog post the other day. It’s about my daughter and her juvenile arthritis. Unfortunately, it’s not a great update…which is part of what has {Read More}

Please Excuse the Mess as we Redecorate


Happy Tuesday! You’ve probably noticed it has been pretty quiet around here. Baby Emory is almost a MONTH old (can you believe it!?) and we have been just spending time getting to know him and adjusting to life as a family of 5. So as you can imagine, blogging has not exactly been a priority 😉 I mean, would you be able to blog when this sweet face is begging for your attention? However…what I HAVE been up to the {Read More}
