A Variety of Flavor and Foods for Your Child to Try

A Variety of Flavor and Foods for Your Child to Try

Although every child is different, Birkley is loving all kinds of “sweet and salty” and spicy foods. Again these are not as meals but more for just trying out different foods and flavors. Birkley gets really frustrated if she wants to eat and can’t exactly […]

My daughter loves to run or at least pretend she’s running, loves to jump in her walker when sees others dancing or jumping, loves watching soccer, baseball, kids playing sports, throwing things, anything… I wish there was a place where they could let themselves be […]

Birkley Has Hit a Huge Milestone

Birkley hit a huge milestone. Three weeks ago she started getting up on all fours(well almost), pushing up on her elbows more…just getting stronger overall. I can see it when she’s on the floor and can feel it when she wraps her arm around me […]

Last Minute Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts

Last Minute Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts

Mothers Day Memory Vase
(Mother’s Day gift I made for my mom)

We are all about homemade gifts in our house. We love to be artsy and even if your art project doesn’t turn out the way you thought it would, I think it’s still the best when it comes to showing someone how much you appreciate them. With these ideas, they don’t take long and something anyone can do.

1. Iron on photograph on a tote – Buy iron on transfer paper at an office or craft store. Mom’s would love a cute picture of their kids or grand kids on their bag.

2. Memory Jar or Vase – I loved this. Think of a certain memory you have of your mom and add whatever you want in the jar. Found the idea on www.marthastewart.com.

3. Paint your own canvas – Craft stores carry all different sizes of stretched canvas. Use acrylic, watercolor or whatever paint you have and if your not an artist, paint stripes, polka dots, small flowers or any other simple pattern. You can glue a photo to it, pieces of fabric, buttons, or anything you find around the house.
