mom knows jack

Jack turned four last weekend, and we celebrated with pizza, cake, ice cream, balloons, presents, and MONSTER JAM! We had a total blast, and as of yesterday, we’re still recovering. My plan, (don’t laugh) now that Jack is four, is to start making him sit for practical homeschool lessons. We’ve been focusing on letters and […]

If you follow my Instagram stories you know that Jack and I took a little vacation with my mama and sissy in law to the Sonora area here in California. We stayed in a quiet little cottage not too far from civilization, but far enough to enjoy a babbling brook, trees, wildflowers, wildlife, sweet summer […]

They make heartwarming things like this for the NICU parents on Holidays. How amazing is that!? As if NICU […]

The past couple of weeks have been a little hectic. But the birthday party went off without a hitch (even if we did forget to put out the bubble machine.) Jack is still teething, that whole top row is coming in, poor baby.  Jack likes to feed himself table food more, and more every day. […]

The third tooth is peaking out this morning. Hopefully we can all get some much needed rest tonight, before the other top teeth make their appearance. My chore list is full this week, I have a lot to do before the birthday party this weekend.  🙂 ❤

Yesterday, my nephew Ryan went home after spending his spring break with us. Jack LOVES his cousin. They played together all week. It was the perfect distraction to help Jack keep his mind of his aching gums. Ryan is so good with his baby cousin, very patient. Even when Jack is climbing all over him, […]
