Over the past week or so, we’ve been working on transitioning Blair to her nursery. After all, I worked so hard preparing her room before she arrived… might as well get some use out of it, right? When it comes to transitioning Baby to the nursery, a band-aid approach works best for our family: move all sleep to Baby’s room at the same time.

Christmas Recap 2017 [First Christmas as a Family of 4]

Breakfast with Santa Kansas City

Our first Christmas as a family of four is officially in the books! And wow, this holiday season was a complete whirlwind. For starters, various combinations of the kids and I were sick for about the first 2 weeks of December.

Of course, I still wanted to do all of our favorite holiday traditions with the little ones. We just had to cram everything in super fast once we were all feeling better!

Christmas is a week away… which means it’s time to share our DIY family Halloween costume, because why not? Look, I have 2 little ones. Hence, why I’m posting Halloween costumes in December. But when they’re as cute as this Ms. Pac-Man and Ghosts costumes ensemble, I can’t let the season pass by without sharing. [And by “season,” obviously I mean “the last 3 months of the year,” which is totally a season in my book.]

My birthday is at the beginning of October, so it’s the perfect time for some fall family fun! Since we’ve had little ones, my birthday tradition has been to visit the pumpkin patch. Well, I have another birthday tradition too: a cookie cake. Can’t forget the cookie cake!

Fall is my favorite season, and I have lots of fun doing all the “basic” fall activities with my little fam.┬áThis year, we visited a local pumpkin patch specially geared towards little kids. Colton was able to do almost all of the activities without help, which was awesome!
