The A-Team Visits The Zoo

Alex and I are always happy to be the “Plus 1” on Amber’s Zoo Pass. Today the boys wanted to run around much more than they wanted to be in their strollers (and I can’t blame them). Although they enjoy looking at the animals (and feeding the goats), I think they really love the outside…

I’m Addicted

I already knew this, but am finally admitting I am addicted to 1154 Lill purses. Amy hosted a party a few weeks ago and I couldn’t come home without a new bag. My newest bag, the Susan, arrived last week. It’s a wonderful bag in general, but a fantastic diaper bag. The inside lining is…

Fantasy Football Draft Party

Wade has played fantasy football for the last few years with friends in Atlanta. This year he decided to play with some local guys. He organized the group and planned a party tonight at our house for the draft. I requested that wives and kids tag along so I wouldn’t be too lonely. Alex and…

A Whirlwind Of A Day

We started the day with a trip to Chicago. First stop was Grant Park to see the Buckingham Fountain: Then we walked to Millennium Park to see Cloud Gate (otherwise known as The Bean). This was actually the reason for the trip. We also stumbled on a children’s play exhibit and tried out all the…

Happy Friday

Alex started today a little early, but was content to play while I tried to wake up: Then we both took a morning nap and Alex woke up super happy: We did our usual morning run to the gym and grocery before lunch and afternoon nap. Then we took a trip to the park. Alex…

Free Range

I love to read – fiction. I’m not a big fan of non-fiction, self-help, or even parenting books. I read the pregnancy, baby, parenting books I was given (I read anything if it ends up in my pile). I’m a really laid-back parent who deals with things as they come. I’m of the opinion that…

    I’ve always admired your parenting style. Sometimes, when I feel like I’m too stressed or hovering too much, I take a deep breath, think about your blog and let Dru try something out (not overly dangerous, of course).

    I am telling you, on a side note, that you HAVE to read the Hunger Games series. I really think you’d love it!

How To Make Cookies With An 18 Month Old

First taste all ingredients (He tried to go back for seconds with the butter). Then the mixing. Alex quickly figured out how to change the speed and I couldn’t leave it going to take a picture. Here he is still trying to figure out why it stopped: Then one last taste to make sure nothing…

Play Date!

Alex had a rough night last night – teething is no fun. He and I both took a 2.5 morning nap. We woke up to an invite to play with Abram and quickly headed across the street. Alex insisted on bringing his soccer ball, but quickly abandoned it for the guitar. The playing moved outside…
