Learn the top signs to teach your baby that they can use before they are able to speak in words.

Previously I was a speech therapist, so I was really interested in teaching my baby early signs for them to use before they could actually use words.

10 Top Signs to Teach Your Baby

As a Speech Therapist, I value  being able to communicate with your baby as early as possible. Babies are born with innate language centers in their brain and are already learning and distinguishing sounds in the womb!

As a baby grows and develops they are quickly picking up on new sequences for meaning as well. For example, when you are developing a bedtime routine, your baby is learning the sequence that happens before they go to sleep.  read more

First Sewing Project for Annaleigh – Easy Burp Cloth

Since the obvious first thing to do when you find out you are having a girl is to go shopping or make something… I decided to try the latter. I am by no means great at sewing. I do have a serger that makes a lot of projects easier.

English: A Brother overlock serger machine.

I am very timid when it comes to starting a project by myself with no previous instructions (maybe fear of failure???). I saw on Pinterest some very easy burp cloth tutorials that I figured I could probably try with little disappointment.

I had some flannel material I bought on sale probably a year ago with no idea what to do with it. I have plenty of blankets left over from Aidalyn, so Annaleigh is probably okay in that department – she will also be a summer baby and won’t need as heavy blankets as Aidalyn. So a burp cloth it was!

Here is what I did with my appliqued flannel burp cloth:

I cut two rectangles of flannel. I sewed the right sides together with my serger leaving about a 2-3 inch opening to flip it. Below is me top stitching the burp cloth after I flipped it over.IMG_0130

I cut out an applique that I free handed of a bird body, wing and beak. I just top stitched it onto the burp cloth with a wide and tight stitch.



And here is my finished project! If I would have thought everything through, I would have appliqued first. Then I wouldn’t have applique stitches on the reverse side… oh well. IMG_0138 IMG_0141


And this is the obligatory belly shot for the week! I am somewhere between 16 1/2 and 17 1/2 weeks in the picture. Feeling pretty good this week, which is a great change.

Hope you all are well!! What else are some easy sewing ideas for babies??? read more

Home for a Baby – Adoption

Adam and I have always had a heart for adoption.

Adam’s aunt and uncle adopted their only son, Henry. My brother in law‘s family adopted two little girls, Selena and Stephanie, almost 10 years ago. Adopting for us isn’t a new idea, we’ve been talking about it for years.

We believe as Christians, the act of adoption is one very close to what God did with us. God loved us enough to welcome us into his family and call us his. We would love to be able to welcome a child into our home and make them a part of us, share our name with them.

Adam’s aunt was able to have a private adoption. Her pastor heard about a baby that was conceived to two students not ready to start a family. He knew that Auntie always wanted children of her own. Within a few weeks, Henry was brought home and was named a Wiygul. He is so perfect for their family – you would never know he was adopted!

I dream for when it is my turn. We started looking at adopting with some different agencies last summer. After getting bogged down with all the paperwork and fee schedules, we decided to postpone the process. In my dreams, we will just find a baby who needs a home and be able to open up our home for them. I pray it will be match that only God can make (just like Henry’s match).

What are your thoughts on adoption?
