It’s happening again Saturday! Grab your gear… and a kid… and join in!

We went mountain biking as a family!  This was my first time on the bike in the woods since… well since I stopped because I was pregnant with Issy.  JW and I are woodsy kind of people, you know, and we are all about the outdoor activities like mountain biking (although I am just a novice, JW is the super fly […]

Baby Eats: What’s there to be afraid of?

0

So one of the biggest questions I get from people when I explain that we are Baby-Led Weaning and skipped the puree’s, letting Issy feed herself since she started showing the signs is… “Aren’t you afraid of choking!”  …what do you mean.  Shouldn’t we all be concerned about our children choking.  It could happen at anytime, whether you are […]

Ok, so the next project wasn’t for me…

3

So after Issy’s new fall dress, I was determined the next sewing project would be for me… sometimes you just need a little something special for yourself, right…  well, it turns out Issy had an emergency need, so this new project took priority.  She needed a wicking shirt and asap; so says JW who sweats all over her […]

New Tunes: Slow dancing in the park

I love rediscovering old music.  Sounds I haven’t heard in a while and from a classic artist no less, Louis Armstrong.  When JW and I sit down to eat dinner, especially BC (Before Child), we often would rather pop on some music than listen to the tv… The Armstrong CD we have is definitely a favorite […]

I just want to be real with you all, it’s not all rainbows and sunshine here everyday.  Like the last few days…  I think we are going through a growth spurt, teething and possibly a touch of allergies… well heck I really don’t know what is wrong…  I keep asking her and all I get is the […]

Baby Eats: Sugar and spice and everything nice… um… I don’t think so

0

Ok, I am going to get on my soap box for a few seconds… just bare with me… you’ve been warned.  When it comes to feeding Issy, there are a few things I watch out for, but Salt and Sugar are at the top of the list.  Their doesn’t seem to be any hard rule on how much […]

Another new development

4

We have been on the crawl for a couple of months now.  After she started crawling it was not very long and she was pulling herself up on the coffee table, doors, me… everything.  We cleared all the tables and baby proofed the floor plugs, etc.  So she would motor from place to place, pull herself up, squinch […]

Sew crazy

3

I have been trying my hand at sewing for the last 6 months.  My mom sewed for us growing up and when I found out I was having a little girl, I have to admit, I was pretty excited to be able to do the same.  So thanks again mom, for showing me how to and […]

New Tunes: Get up, Stand up… it’s Bizness

Blew my mind… this song (and video!) makes it hard to stay in my seat.  I just want to get up and dance along with them.  The song is a great composition with african roots and awesome instrumentation.  Well you just have to listen for yourself… Tune-Yards:  Bizness If you are like me and watch it over and over again, you might […]

Just around the corner

0

The weather was great this weekend.  Showing us that fall is just around the corner, which means… evening fires… no bugs… and rocking on the back porch.  Ahhhh this makes mama happy. The dogs are pretty siked about the cooler weather too.  It’s almost like they get a boost of new energy with the change in season.  Buddy stopped and smiled […]
