A Little Boy this Fathers Day

Matt and I are always busy, struggling with balancing demanding work schedules as attorneys and quality time with Max, but I think we are doing a good job so far.  Max seems to be thriving in daycare, and honestly, we call it school when we talk about it because they have a designated curriculum daily, and … Continue reading A Little Boy this Fathers Day

This Momma’s Drama – Baby’s First Haircut 

We finally did it. Maxwell got his very first haircut. Matt and I would go back and forth as to whether Max should get his hair cut, with each one of us changing our mind at different times.  At one point I think Matt was set on Max growing his hair long like a little … Continue reading This Momma’s Drama – Baby’s First Haircut 

When Life Gives You Lemons

I think the saying is "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade," or something like that.  Sharing our journey is another way that I can help turn a negative into a positive. One in eight couples struggle to build a family. My husband and I are one of those couples.  I share our story in … Continue reading When Life Gives You Lemons

Hello Mr. Rabbit

We had lots of bunny rabbit shenanigans over the last week getting ready for Easter, and we didn't even have to leave Winter Garden. Last weekend Max did a great job with his first Easter egg hunt, even if he was a little bit bashful with the furry man of the hour. He gathered so … Continue reading Hello Mr. Rabbit

My Little Dirt Kid

Somehow overnight Max no longer seems like a baby in any sense of the word.  He's saying more and more words every day, happily pointing to his "nooooooooose" in the middle of his cute smooshy face and spouting off the usual "no" and "mine" for good measure.  No worries though, the little baby hugs and … Continue reading My Little Dirt Kid

Daddy’s Tennis Clinic 🎾 (McEnroe is my Spirit Animal)

I got my husband tickets to a tennis pro series that was coming through town shortly after the new year as part of his Christmas present a few months ago. Matt grew up playing tennis, and it's a sport that he still loves watching and playing today. Part of the package  included a practice session actually … Continue reading Daddy’s Tennis Clinic 🎾 (McEnroe is my Spirit Animal)

Baguette? 🥖 

Don't trust a quiet house. Just a little snippet of daily life.  I'm not the cook in our family because my husband is amazing in the kitchen, so much so that I would rather stay in and enjoy his meals instead of eating out most any place.  Yesterday my company had the day off, so … Continue reading Baguette? 🥖 

If Not For Colorado

I couldn't bear to part just yet with my littlest man for a whole week, so we took him along with my parents, on a ski trip to Colorado this week. The full significance of taking Max to Colorado didn't become fully apparent to me until the plane started its descent and I saw the … Continue reading If Not For Colorado
