Fall Bucket List

So, I’m really excited for fall. Like I can’t even describe it. Fall always brings back great childhood memories for me like trick-or-treating, Thanksgiving dinners, football games, Black Friday shopping, going to the state fair, and pumpkin patches. Since Squish is finally old enough to realize what’s going on and enjoy going to do stuff, I…

Baby’s First Easter Keepsake

Wether this is your little monster’s first Easter, or one of the many more to celebrate, making keepsakes is always a fun way to remember such a special holiday!  I like keepsakes that I know will keep for years to come, and that I can use to decorate every year. This way I can look…

FabFitFun Spring Box Review

For the past week I’ve been commuting an hour to take an 8 am to to 5 pm life, health, and accident insurance class. Sounds fun, right? This was also Squish’s first week at daycare. So, to say it’s been a long week is a slight understatement.  Thankfully my little monster loves his new teachers,…

Baby’s First Easter Basket

It can’t seriously already be March.  It just can’t.  OK, maybe I’m just refusing to acknowledge the fact that next month is April and my wittle baby is going to be ONE. I’m going to chill over here in denial land a little while longer, thank you very much.  While the thought of my bitty…

Over the Weekend

We had a pretty interesting weekend over here in Squishy-monster land.  Squishy and I went to Hattiesburg with Tory and her daughter for the Dance Teachers United convention. It was really fun and so great to see all the young girls enjoying something they love so much!  I love getting to go out of town…

Over the Weekend

We had a pretty great weekend here!   Nana and Big Daddy came to town Thursday to get their king cake. Just kidding, Nana had a doctors appointment here in town so I made them a king cake to take home. Anyways, Friday night we all went out to eat at El Sombrero, our local…

My Little “Bum”pkin

These pictures were so much fun to do!  I saw this adorable picture of a baby with a pumpkin painted on his butt on Pinterest a while back and have been patiently (haha) waiting to do this with Squish.  So last weekend I finally got everything together and took Squish over to my friends house…

Halloween DIYS

As I might have mentioned before, Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday! And with this being Squishy’s first Halloween, I’m double excited!  We spent this morning driving all over town for supplies, but after Kroger, Hobby Lobby, and THREE trips to Walmart we finally got everything we needed.  We did two crafts today: Halloween “bum”kin painting and…

Squishy is SIX MONTHS OLD!

Today was a big day for my little monster! Not only is he SIX months old (NOOO 😭), he had his six month check up, too!  He now weighs 15 lbs and 5 oz and is 27 inches long! He had to get four shots today, and it broke my heart. It hasn’t gotten to…

Munch Mitt Review

Over the past few weeks Squishy has been teething like crazy and wanting to chew on EVERYTHING! One issue we’ve been having is that he hasn’t quite mastered holding something while he chews on it. He can pick it up and get it to his mouth, but will drop it after a few seconds. This…

Breastfeeding is HARD

 Breastfeeding is the most natural thing in the world.  What? Are you on crack?? I’m 99% sure whoever said this never actually breastfed a baby. Ok so maybe it IS the natural way for your body to feed your baby, but it definitely doesn’t come naturally to everyone. There’s a serious learning curve for mama…
