Heat Waves and Biker Babes

We just introduced Dr. Seuss at our house and it's going quite well. I picked up two books at Target that were on sale for Dr. Seuss' birthday, "Hop on Pop" and "Green Eggs and Ham". Will really enjoys Green Eggs and Ham, and I can really relate … Continue Reading

Breastfeeding Twins: Our Year in Review

The Twins are One!

Moving is hard, period.

This isn't the first move for Alex and me. We moved here from Indiana a few years ago and while it was difficult to leave there, I could never imagine how much harder things would be this time around. Saturday we were fortunate to have some friends … Continue Reading

I am The Crazy Lady

I am convinced that most people are really only a few steps away from chaos and craziness at any given time. Today I ventured over into the crazy side, or maybe I've always been there. We are moving 8 hours north to PA in less than two … Continue Reading

Review: Covillow Breastfeeding Cover & Pillow in One with Giveaway!

I have often been seduced by the beautiful patterns of nursing covers and the whispers of modestly breastfeeding my baby in style. However, the majority of nursing covers that I have tried to use have failed to deliver in the areas where I needed the … Continue Reading

Jamie’s 2011 Christmas Picks for Tots

At 2 1/2 and 10 months, I still get the pleasure of picking out toys for my kids because they can't read yet and have limited outside influences on their play choices. For the past couple of months, Will has been obsessed with "Mighty Machines" aka … Continue Reading

Making a list, checking it twice

In anticipation of last weekend's toy sales, I started putting together the boys' wish lists for Santa and family members who wanted to buy them gifts. They aren't quite old enough to be able to write their own, so I thoughtfully clicked through … Continue Reading
