She’s a Big Girl Now

Our baby girl isn’t such a baby anymore. She walks, talks, and makes her opinions known. She entertains us with her games. We know her favorite toys and get excited every time she adds another word or two. She loves to dance and enjoys jumping at the indoor trampoline park. In two short years, she has developed into such a smart, energetic little girl.

Christmas Magic

Cassandra just turned two. She’s a typical toddler–full of energy and wonder. The world is an exciting place for her. Each new thing is exciting and worthy of her exploration. This holiday season has been no different. She has become our little investigator, making sure each holiday tradition meets with her approval.

Taking Care of Mom (or Dad)

Admit it! No matter how much you love your kids, it’s not healthy to concentrate on them every moment of every day. I can already hear the groans of some of you. “Why have kids if you don’t devote your life to them?” And, I agree – one hundred percent. I also think that some time devoted to your own interests makes for a much more interesting and able parent.

Balancing Act

I will admit it. I’m an overachiever. I grew up in a home where excellence was expected and I worked hard to meet those expectations. These days, I’m in charge of my own schedule, but old habits die hard. I work hard at my job and often balance different types of jobs. Even when I’m home, I’m doing something. I always have a project of some sort brewing.
