party of five

I feel like I’ve been living a lie the past couple of months.  Blogging has been sporadic at best, and while summer time definitely does mean more activities and things going on, it’s not the real reason I’ve been away more.

At 16 months I don’t really think of Zoe as a baby anymore.  She’s walking, talking, independent and already sharing her opinion (loudly) whenever she gets the chance.  She is so full of personality!  The only area that’s still baby-like is her mouth.  The girl only has one tooth!  She had her first tooth (a […]

unnamed

I don’t know about you, but I have such a tough time figuring out gifts for my mom and dad.  Whenever birthdays, Christmas and mother’s/father’s day rolls around I’m usually left scratching my head on what to gift.  I like to give thoughtful gifts… sometimes handmade items or I’ll get the kids involved too.  It’s […]
