A Vintage/Anthropologie Inspired Little Man Baby Shower

Fox Cake

I’m excited to share this vintage, Anthropologie, little man inspired baby shower with you all today! Back in April a sweet friend of mine was going to be having a baby boy. I wanted to help plan/style the party. Since Tish (my friend) is a lover of all things eclectic, and is a photographer, it made sense to combine the two loves and create this dessert table. We wanted to bring an indoor nursery outside and created a faux wall to help feature the desserts. We used family pictures, art, “G’ for baby Greyson, and a DIY deer head (my […]

My Cochlear Story: Part 2

Dr. Wayne Grudem

(…yup!  He’s wearing my microphone!) Back in April I had the privilege of hearing Dr. Wayne Grudem speak on the Gifts of the Spirit.  While he was speaking, I was struck by a comment he made.  He said, “Many people will seek medical healing, but they won’t seek spiritual.”  As my husband and I were driving home, I realized that I had been doing the opposite.  The Spirit revealed to me that I had completely written off medical healing because of the two previous attempts. The next day, my husband was giving Dr. Grudem my FM System (an assistive listening […]

The BEST baby shower gift for 1st time mommies

IMG_3133-1

A little over 2 1/2 years ago Greg and I welcomed Asa into the world.  He has been a joy and a wonderful addition to our family.  A few months before he was born a friend threw a baby shower for me and we were fortunate to have many friends and family shower us with gifts.  Everything from diapers and wipes to clothes to highchairs and a car seat/stroller combo were included in the gifts that were graciously provided for us. If I remember right, every one of those gifts was used and cherished in its time.  There is one […]

Jesus Storybook Bible

A lot of my friends are pregnant right now.  Some of them are going to be first-time mommy’s (Yay!) and some of them are on their 2nd or 3rd (or more!)  So on Fridays I want to share a few of my favorite things (this week is dedicated to baby stuff)… here’s the list! 5. Ergo Baby Carrier.  I didn’t actually find this until after Asa was one, but it is GREAT.  It can hold babies up to 40 pounds or something crazy like that.  I needed to have Asa on my person when we were taking a trip to […]

Asa is 21 1/2 Months Old!

Aaahhhh!!!  Almost everyday I think about how my little baby is becoming a sweet little boy.  I can’t believe in less then three months he will be two years old.  Where does the time go? I’ve been thinking about potty training lately.  I don’t know if it is too early or what, but I’m getting seriously tired of diapers.  I’m tired of changing them and tired of spending money on them.  Any tips and/or suggestions? I’ve also started planning Asa’s 2nd birthday party and I am SO excited.  I’ve been scouring the net trying to find ideas and have found […]
