Baby Firsts and Milestones to Remember

Fourth of July Fun for Toddlers

Summer and Independence Day go hand-in-hand, don’t you think? I think summer would be unbearable without a grand holiday such as the Fourth of July, complete with fireworks, BBQs, and parades.

5 {Compelling} Reasons to Teach Your Child Baby Sign Language

My first baby, Sofía, learned many baby signs and still uses some of them at nearly 3 years old. Her younger sister, Bella, on the other hand, has learned very little and I regret not taking the time to teach her like I did with Sofía. Bella is probably the one that could use it… Keep reading →

Songs We Love: “Rain, Rain, Go Away”

I currently have a 2 year old (almost 3) and a 15 month old. Those ages are tough, let me tell ya.

Fruity Oatmeal Mix-Ins

-Read Part 1 or Part 2– Some mornings I get sick and tired of preparing food for my children.
