Baby Gabby Update and Freckle Baby News




I can't even believe that my little Gabby girl is already eight months old. Even though I don't have a weekly progress photo for this little munchkin due to second child syndrome, I have kept her pretty well documented so far (see Instagram for proof...).

Parenting Bravely in a Frightening World




I don't know if worrying or being afraid compounds as we get older but I do know that fear is a side effect of birthing children. In fact, I wrote a whole post about it here before we headed off to Kenya with our 7-month-old. Today on Mombies Unite, Emily calls parenting "a constant exercise in bravery" and because her writing is exact and real and true, I'm not going to say one more word so that you can get right to hers.

Introducing HandMade Oh Baby

So I have been getting pretty excited about something lately and I can't keep my mouth shut so it's time to share the news with you!

Thankfully, today's post from Andrea at For the Love of Honey lays it out for us. Here are ten hilarious (and true) signs you may be a mombie. I'm hoping Andrea will publish a Mombie Handbook soon, but I can live with these helpful guidelines until then.

When I Say You're Beautiful - What I Want My Daughters to Know


I've had so much fun lately talking about clothes and accessories, trends and patterns both on Fashion Fridays and on the Wednesday link-up with The Blended Blog. I think style IS fun. I feel that we humans (and especially we women) are made to express something in all we do, say, and put forward. And it's fun. And it's silly. And we can laugh while we do it.

Wear It All - Week Four

Wait. It IS March, isn't it?

Feel free to abandon ship now if you need to. 

Also, I think this is the kind of post that results in a decrease in the mailing list. 

No judgment.
