Jude is officially 6 months old! I can't believe how fast these months have flown by! Feels like I was pregnant forever and now he's 6 months! Tyler's birthday was at the end of September so we celebrated Jude's half birthday and Tyler's 44th birthday together. We didn't do anything too special. Beca sent Tyler… Continue reading We Have A 6 Month Old!
Lately I've avoided and taken a break from blogging. Didn't feel like I had much to say honestly. Tyler still hasn't found a job and we were hurting in every aspect with just his very part time job. Some hiccups led to Beca and the girls still not moving yet. But difficult times do not… Continue reading Difficult Times
I haven't gotten too many negative responses to Jude's clothing. Part of that could be because he's still a baby and people just assume he is a girl. Jude, along with all our other children, are being raised to love all colors and that clothes are for wearing regardless of their gender. Let's be honest:… Continue reading My Child’s Clothes
On Monday the three of us traveled to Cannon Beach to view the solar eclipse. It was Jude's first time at the beach! My thinking as I was packing was that it would be warm and sunny. It is August! So this is how I dressed Jude. Well the beach was 52 degrees with wind! Oh… Continue reading Beach Day!
We went to the Portland zoo for the first time today! Some new friends invited us with a bunch of other moms. This was Jude's first time at the zoo. We certainly took the opportunity to wear a new outfit! How cute is that outfit?! Bruno the lion tagged along with us as well. We… Continue reading Zoo Day
When it comes to babies the easiest way to carry them is in some sort of baby carrier. Trust me! Your arms will fall off otherwise! Our family has tried a lot of different carriers in the past 4 months and thanks to Tyler's work being at a baby/kids store we are able to test… Continue reading Baby Wearing
I took a short break lately. I'm back now and will hopefully be able to keep up with this in the next month. Big news though! Beca and the girls are moving in with us in less than a month! Until we can find a big house for us all everybody is sharing a 800… Continue reading Hiatus
Our baby Jude is 3 months old! We're did the time go?! Feel like it was just yesterday I was holding him for the first time. 😢 Today I packed up all his newborn stuff and tucked it away for the next time we will need it. So many cute outfits. We had our 3… Continue reading Growing Up
When we were planning our first child I really wanted to go all out and do the minimalist route/all natural route. I had grand plans of an all natural home birth, cloth diapers, breast feeding, essential oils, etc. half those goals were accomplished! After Jude was born I went to put his first cloth… Continue reading Cloth Diapering
My Fourth of July's growing up were spent celebrating my mother's birthday. Last year we grilled out, played board games, and then Tyler and my brother Seth blew stuff up! Since we are halfway across the country now we had to figure out our own festivities. It was also my brother's dog Charlie's birthday!… Continue reading Our First Fourth of July
