From our family to yours

After using Tiny Prints for our Christmas cards last year, there wasn't even a question that I would use them again this year. Last year I remember signing our card with Jon, Ruthie, Ford, and Baby Sister April 2015... now our baby girl is almost 7 months old and we can't imagine life without her! ...more

Pajama Party (GIVEAWAY)

Yesterday Ford and I had so much fun hosting a midweek pajama party at Hat Creek Burger Company. Austinites have you heard of Hat Creek? It is the jam! ...more

Midweek Randoms

Well I am writing this post while lounging in bed because I have mastitis, yuck. I'm shocked because Lucy and I are on such a good nursing schedule and haven't had any issues the past 7 months. I knew it was happening because I had it when Ford was 5 weeks old so I called my doctor ASAP and got on antibiotics immediately ....more

Our God is Good

Oh my heart. It has been physically hurting watching the terror of this world the past week. I am not a political person and will never talk politics on my blog (or ever really) but I do want to speak truth and life amidst deep sadness ....more


My mom did such a great job saving special toys from my childhood that now my kids get to play with. The ticking of the wind up cuckoo clock and sound of the pull See and Say are so nostalgic! I can't wait until Lucy is old enough to get out my old Barbies and American Girl dolls ....more

Ford check in... 2 1/4 years

It has felt weird not to do a monthly update on Ford since he turned 2 and since he's changed and grown so much in the past 3 months, I wanted to do a little check in on our little dude. At the end of each day Jon and I lay in bed and recap all the hilarious things Ford said that day. We are constantly asking ourselves, "Where did he learn that?!" ....more

Halloween 2015

Halloween has come and gone.... Ford was quite stressed when I started taking down our decorations on Sunday... and yes I take down my decorations the day after or else it stresses me out ....more

Lucy's First Food

Today is a crazy day in Austin. It hasn't stopped raining since early this morning and there is flooding across our city. For a city who has experienced a multi year drought, it is great, but man it's intense! ...more

Lucy 6 months

Lucy Joy is 6 months old today and I really can't believe it. As of now we are closer to her first birthday than her birth day. Wow time flies when you are busy with babies (and also having fun) ....more

Trunk or Treat

One of the many things that drew us to our neighborhood was the community. We live in a super family friendly master planned community (basically every has kids or is now an empty nester and once had a house full of kids) that celebrates all of the holidays with parades, events, and community outreach. I am really excited about this holiday season with Ford ....more
