My Favorite Baby Products

When I was pregnant with our first, registering for baby products was pretty overwhelming. I did a lot of research and turned to blogs to gather opinions and build our wish list of items. It was very helpful reading through what other moms found necessary vs. unnecessary because there are so many products and it […]

10 Month Update on Our Little Man

Alright, technically Emory is 11 months at this point, but better late than never. Our little man continues to grow and learn from his big sister. He’s still so sweet and has seemed to get even sneakier as time goes on, and as you can tell from the pictures, he’s still our little garbage disposal. […]

Eight-month Update On Our Little Man

Every time I start to write one of Emory’s updates, I glance through my past updates on him and each time I want to ugly cry!! How is our baby so big already (also a repetitive statement in each of these update posts)? I thought time with our first flew by, but this, this is […]

SIX-MONTH UPDATE ON OUR LITTLE MAN

Time is moving fast, but I’m pretty sure our Emory is moving faster. He’s calm, but he’s so sneaky and quick. A ninja, really. Grabbing at spoons when we feed him, pulling at his sister’s hair (in a playful way of course) and trying to crawl and pull up on some of his toys. And […]

Our Little Man Has Arrived

Emory Ellis was born at 9:34 p.m. last night, weighing 8 pounds 1 oz and nearly 21 inches long. Even with his cone-shaped head, he’s as cute as a button and we are absolutely smitten with him. He looks like he has my husband’s good looks already. 🙂 Everyone is doing great and we can’t […]

Shopping List for Baby #2

With baby number two coming in three months, I’ve started thinking about items we’ll need/want to accommodate two kids, as well as products that will make our lives easier with a toddler and a baby. I did a lot of research when registering for our first and thanks to our gracious family and friends, we have […]

Monthly Baby Pictures

Ahhhh the pressure we (moms) put on ourselves to get a photo of our child to turn out perfectly each month. I can’t tell you how difficult the last 3 months were trying to get our daughter to sit still for a photo – some of the candids we took were very interesting! So many […]
