Harlow was given a denim shirt dress when she was about 5 months old, it has turned out to be one of the longest lasting items in her closet. With each little growth spurt we find a new way to wear it, and it’s a staple with every stage. Here are a few of the different ways I style the little denim shirt dress to last. READ THE FULL POST

I hope your weather is much brighter and warmer then ours: it’s grey, chilly and fall like here. But it’s Friday, so it’s a great day!!

Yesterday,  I caught the kids jumping on King’s bed. I resisted my instincts and ran to grab the camera instead of rushing them off. Sometimes I just need to go with it and let them be crazy. Turns out, letting them jump wasn’t such a bad idea –  the bed had no bounce, so they got bored pretty quick. I know photos with action blurs are usually not perfect enough to post, but sometimes the unperfect is better then perfect.

One of the cutest little toddler tricks (in that giant bag of cute tricks all toddlers have), is the jump. I love watching them get SO into it – they get down really low, and they make a point of grunting as they BURST into the sky! Giant smiles and loud laughter as they “land”, they just cannot believe how much air they got! A good 99% of the time their feet never leave the ground, but we still cheer and tell them they just about touched the clouds they jumped so high! I love it!

Please take a second to learn about this wonderful cause, spear headed by the lovely Adriel from Mommyhood Memos – help by spreading the word or donating.

Bloggers for Birth Kits is a simple initiative from the Mommyhood Memos to rally bloggers to reach out and help other moms in Papua New Guinea. These moms may live in a different nation to you, speak another language, look a little different, or have a very different lifestyle… but they are mothers with the same heart – mothers who desire to deliver healthy, thriving babies just as we do. Because in rural Papua New Guinea… 1 in 7 women die in childbirth and that rate is simply unacceptable.

Please read the Mommyhood Memo’s original post to learn how you can help.

We love to play hide and seek, usually it’s a family affair. Lately the kids love to play on their own, and boy is it ever ridiculously cute to watch – usually they hide in the same 4 spots over and over again. The best part is, even though there is a little hand or foot sticking out in the open – both King and Harley play the “I can’t find them anywhere” game. They learn fast.

I know my kids are really great at hiding, but can you spot them in the pictures? I followed them around through a weekend game and snapped a couple photos.
