5 Things That Surprised Me as a New Momma


Just a few things I’ve realized over the last few months as a new Mom – besides the obvious parts, like loving the little chubby bubbie to death. I don’t think I’ll ever feel like I know what I’m doing 100% of the time – but I do feel like I have it figured out most of the time. and look – memes and somee cards. 1. Internet Friends (or “pretend” friends as my Mom and I also call them) {Read More}

Ford – 8 months


This kid has given us a run for our money this month. Bronchiolitis, recurrent ear infections, and now we are battling thrush. My poor kiddo. Otherwise, he’s been great. Even through all the sickness, he’s been a champ. No sleepless nights, no fits, he’s just been his normal happy little self. And he’s getting so dang big, I know I say that every month, but he really is. He’s SO long! Most of his clothes are too short on him! {Read More}

Ford – 7 months


How on earth is Ford already 7 months? This can’t be. Please tell time to slow down! It looks like he’s saying – “Guys, LOOK! I’m 7months old! S-E-V-E-N!” He’s such a cute little bunny! I swear his hair is starting to go red. Then I look again and it’s blonde. Maybe he’ll end up strawberry blonde. Either way, he’s adorable. He’s such a snuggler – which this Momma loves. Developing more rolls (so yummy!) Weight: No official weigh in {Read More}

He looked SO grown up! this darling bow tie & suspender set are from my friend, Jenny’s, Etsy Shop – DesignerGirls – Check it out! Seriously?! How cute is my boy? Ahhh! I just love him!

Ford 6 months


How is my little man already 6 months?! Time is just flying by. I swear I’ll be posting about his first birthday before I know it. Ford is such a sweet little guy. He is really starting to interact with us more and it’s just SO much fun to see him growing and learning new things. (but, at the same time, I wish time would slow down!) (side note: I started writing this a few days before Ford turned 6 {Read More}

Happy Valentine’s Day


  Happy Valentine’s Day! Love, FORD (and Ash & Diz, & Olivia)

Ford 5 months


This little man is growing up so fast! He is just such a sweet little guy. When he smiles at me, I swear my heart just melts. He’s starting to really interact with us more, he’ll grab our faces (hair, lips, nose, whatever he can grab) and pull (or pinch, yikes!) and sometimes even try to “kiss” us and chomp on our faces. For the first time I can finally see what people are saying when they say Ford looks {Read More}

My Breastfeeding Journey


I’ve honestly been trying to write this post for a least 2 months now. I don’t know why I’ve had such a hard time getting this written out. So – here we go. Alright y’all… I’m about to get a little personal and talk about breastfeeding so if that’s not your cup of tea… feel free to skip this post. When I found out I was pregnant I knew I wanted to try breastfeeding. I read a ton about breastfeeding {Read More}

Ford 4 months


My baby is 4 months! How is this possible?! I swear he was just born yesterday. As a new mom you hear “enjoy every little moment because they grow up so fast” and I used to think, “yeah, yeah, yeah” – but you know what?! It’s true! There are days when I wake up and get him out of the crib and I swear he’s grown an inch or two and gained a few pounds. I sure love this little {Read More}

Grandpa Garth

Grandma Marge 079

Just thought I’d share my Grandpa’s obituary. He really was such a cool guy and accomplished SO much in his 89 years. His services were earlier this week and everything went so well. We shared many memories, lots of laughter and tears. We will miss him dearly but I am so happy that he is back with my Grandma.   On New Year’s Day, Garth Ford passed away, surrounded by his family. He was born July 26, 1924 in Provo, {Read More}
