What about guns and play?

What about guns and play?

We were recently at the local public library hanging out in the kid section and Adelaide was running around with another child that looked to be about the same age as her (almost 3).

An Oregon Wine Tour

An Oregon Wine Tour

My two best friends on the Oregon Coast are also kind of like my big sisters/life mentors. They are slightly older than me and definitely wiser and more settled in their own skin.

Baby’s First Haircut

Baby’s First Haircut

I guess at 15 months, I should probably stop calling him a baby, huh? I’ve always said that if I had a boy I wouldn’t let his hair go all mullet and girly but I’ll tell you I totally get why so many parents let that hair grow and grow. I procrastinated cutting those sweet(…)
