With summer coming to a close, we’ve been working towards knocking everything out on our summer bucket list. With kids in tow, summer has taken on a whole new meaning. I love seeing the season through their eyes and leading them on adventures.
While there’s technically only one month left of summer, it takes a while for the South Carolina heat to get the Fall memo. While I’m hopeful that cooler temperatures are just around the corner, you’ll find us using these tips and tricks to stay cool…
Picky eating is so common in toddlers, and something I see daily at work. As a pediatric dietitian by day, I spend a lot of time with picky eaters and have been able to apply what I teach moms and families at work to my family at home. We’ve seen a lot of improvement in our picky eating, so I wanted to share my tips and tricks here with you guys as well!
I can’t believe it’s already been 11 weeks since our little love joined us. How!? Time flies by and is such a thief. He already is so much bigger and looks SO different. There are moments he and Piper look like twins at this age, and other times they look totally different. For a while we said he was Piper with brown hair, but now he’s looking more and more like his own little person. I’ve always said that Piper looks and acts like her Daddy, and Fields’ looks, and I think will act, more like me ;) A mama’s boy!
My fabulous friend Sophie was going to take pictures for us at his birth, but since she didn’t make it to the birth (read his birth story here), we had her come take newborn pictures for us, and I’m so glad we did! I know I will cherish these pictures forever. Plus, I need proof to know that the newborn stage actually happened because those first few weeks are all a blur and I pretty much don’t even remember them ;), haha.
Slowly but surely our playroom is coming together, and I wanted to share a little progress with you guys today! One of my favorite parts of our house is our large sunroom. For the longest time it was the dog’s space, since it was easy to put up a gate and contain him from the rest of the house when we needed. When he went to live with another family (still miss him so much!), we knew we wanted to turn the sunroom into our playroom. It is huge, so there is also a sitting space I’m working on decorating on the opposite end of the room, our laundry closet, and a separate nook that is Piper’s “kitchen.” Since there are so many separate spaces in this room, I’ve kind of been focusing on one at a time when it comes to decor.
