We recently had the opportunity to review the Go! Go! Smart Animals Zoo Explorers Playset which has been a huge hit in our house, especially when Parker’s friends come over to play. I was thrilled when VTech reached out to work on four additional product reviews and a special giveaway for all of my Cherry Blossom Love […]

16 Thoughts in Parker’s 28th Month


Dear Parker, I can’t believe another month has come and gone. I know Mommy has been busy taking care of Caity and hasn’t had as much time to play with you. Thank you for being such a good little boy and understanding. Iv’e been doing a lot of thinking over the last month about your first […]

Caity’s One Month Update


  It’s hard to believe that we brought Caity home from the hospital a month ago already. I suspect that is mostly because the days seem to run together lately.

Parker’s 27 Month Update


As expected this past month was pretty hectic and a little stressful at times. We spent the month trying to get as much done as possible, visiting L&D a few times, and trying to savor every moment we could with Parker. We had quite a few people come to visit for Labor Day which was […]
