Newborn Cloth Diapers

Newborn Cloth Diapers

My bestie Janelle (or in “Borbie” terms “Nelle”) asked what kind of diapering we would do until Jaeda was big enough to fit into our Smartipants. I was seriously considering buying some newborn cloth diapers, since we’re pretty sure we’ll need them again…someday (don’t get too excited just yet; give us some time, people!). Well, […]

Fingerpainting

Fingerpainting

We’ve had lots of crying the past few days. Those beautiful pearly whites bursting through gums are to blame. So I decided we needed something fun, something new, something…messy. source Corban preferred to chew on Purple Lady. Mr. F. had a blast squeezing the jellied paint. He’s had lots of practice squeezing bananas…all over my […]

Recent Craftiness

I’ve been having a blast with my sewing machine these past several months. Here’s a little peek into some of the craftiness: I sent this butterfly to my 7th grade math teacher who is not doing well physically. I hope it brightened her day! Burp cloths for Baby D with towels for the back; super […]

Early Christmas

Early Christmas

We celebrated Thanksgiving (that post will be next…yes, I realize it’s out of order, but it’ll be okay!) with the Hutchens this weekend. And Corban’s birthday (which will be next, next). And Christmas (which, in case you haven’t caught on is right now!). I have been sooo excited for this year’s gift-giving and have been […]

Domestication 101

Domestication 101

I’m not ashamed to say that I’m a stay-at-home mom, a housewife, if you will. I love the smaller focus on my Lord and my family. I don’t feel overwhelmed with pressure to accomplish certain tasks. I have ample time to read, play, love, cook, think, talk, laugh, clean (yes, that is a perk for […]

Sewing: Success at Last

Sewing: Success at Last

James can’t stand using our store-bought wipes. And for good reason. They’re pretty awful. I’ve been promising to use my leftover baby blanket fabric to make new wipes for about, oh, two months or so. It’s just that me and sewing aren’t always on speaking terms. But today I decided to just do it. Aaand […]

Baby Food of the Mushy Sort

Baby Food of the Mushy Sort

Exciting news: we started Corban on solids last week! Okay, so it’s only once a day, but still, he’s not a newborn anymore. We’ve decided to try our my hand at making his food ourselves myself. It’s not that difficult, but really we’re just hoping it’s more cost effective. We’ll see! He love, love, loves […]

Cloth Wipes

Cloth Wipes

When we decided to go the cloth diaper route, we thought we’d throw in cloth wipes for fun. (?) I mean, I’m doing diaper laundry as it is, so why not! We got these wipes from our registry at Babies R Us. Had we read the reviews (it’s just cloth, people, what could go wrong??), […]

Choose your own adventure.

Janelle and I have this thing where we like to take our husbands on really super amazing double dates. Well, what better time to do that than when I’m on maternity leave and she’s on Christmas Break? Here’s how it went down: The Game: The boys didn’t know the topic or the reason. They were […]
