I didn’t really have a theme in mind early on for my son’s first birthday party and was open to any ideas that crossed my path. I had originally thought about doing a cars theme, not the movie but just the whole concept of the vehicle because he LOVES wheels and toy cars but I talked myself out of it knowing he’d probably enjoy this theme when he got a bit older. I stumbled upon the dollar section at Target in early summer and it was full of camping decor items. I was instantly sold! They were so cute and the value for the items made it worth it, since I didn’t have to spend tons to get a bunch of stuff. My daughter has also been big on playing “camping” in our family room lately so I figured it would also be fun for her!
12 months came and went on October 21 and I’m still in shock! October was a busy month for me planning this guy’s first birthday, going back to work and adjusting to new schedules for our family.

He was bigger at birth than sissy was and hasn’t slowed down since; they are currently only four pounds apart! Since Ever was a bigger baby, we very quickly made the switch from our infant car seat into a “big boy” car seat. If we didn’t already own an infant bucket seat from our daughter, it probably wouldn’t have made any sense to get one for our son as we barely used it. When I first bought our bucket seat I didn’t even realize that you could get car seats which are made to grow with your babe, all the way from infancy to childhood. The Safety 1st Grow & Go Air 3-in-1 Car Seat is just that. Continue reading
On September 21, baby brother turned 11 months old! The fact that we are almost at 12 months old already is blowing my mind. This last year has flown by and has been such an incredible experience as I’ve watched my two little ones interact together.
Baby brother turned ten months old on August 21. It was a busy season for us as we prepared for fall and the changes that come with summer ending and a new season beginning.
To our sweet girl,
Watching you grow this past year has been incredible. Two was such a wonderful age as I watched you become more independent, yet still cautious as you explored the world around you. Continue reading
