Every pregnancy is different. Every baby is different. Every child is different.
These are things we hear as moms and expecting moms, and while true, it doesn’t necessarily sink in until it’s experienced. At least for me it didn’t until my second precious daughter came along.
My dear Lily has done her best to make a distinction from her big sister since day 1!
Her sister was born before her due date, Lily was born a day late. Her sister was very active during the day but slept like a champ at night, whereas Lily was incredibly mellow during the day and sleep was definitely NOT in her vocabulary. Her sister has always been pretty good about eating and trying a mix of fruits and vegetables, and that Lily isn’t having it!! HA!
She will eat fruit (not all of them) and not touch a single vegetable, and (like her father I’m told) boycott most everything that’s placed in front of her during mealtime. It’s frustrating to say the least, but this mama has options with the help of Happy Baby’s Clearly Crafted™ Pouches!

Mother’s Day is right around the corner! Is it just me or have all the holidays snuck up on us this year?
Either way it goes, I’m very excited to celebrate this special day, not just for myself but for all the wonderful mothers I know!
I am truly blessed to have THE BEST mother in the WORLD, and I am surrounded by so many beautiful and encouraging maternal figures in my life. I am also rejoicing with the mama’s to be, and am excited for anyone who may be celebrating this special occasion for the first time!
Everyone seems to get a bit frantic about finding the right gift for that special lady in their life, and whether you are still looking for something suited for that new mom, your sister, a co-worker or a friend, IncrediBundles has options for everyone!!

My family and I just enjoyed a wonderful night out. We went to Disney on Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment, and had the best time!! Due to his work schedule, my husband and I rarely have a family night out during the week, and we couldn’t wait to see how our daughter’s reacted to the show.
Truth be told, we were just as giddy and excited as they were, and it did not disappoint!
Motherhood to me is one of the most important and fulfilling aspects of my life. I mother with my whole heart and fiercely try to remember the gifts that have been placed in my life.
Our journey into motherhood was not the easiest, yet, without making light of what we went through, I now understand why all the events needed to fall the way they did. It has given me a stronger purpose to be their mom.
Easter is mere days away, and it seems everyone is in preparation mode. In this household there will be gift baskets, egg decorating, a special dinner menu, and we’ll be attending the (extra packed) church service this weekend.
All things I look forward to, but I’ve also been in search of ways to better emphasize the importance of this holiday to my girls.

Don’t get me wrong, bunnies and treats and egg hunts are fun, but as a celebration of the day Jesus rose from the dead, Easter means so much more. It symbolizes forgiveness, rebirth, and God’s saving power!!
It’s a time to contemplate, mourn and rejoice, and this year my girls and I have been reading My Easter Bible Storybook by Precious Momentsto help illustrate what this day is truly all about.
