Dropping the Swaddle.

You guys, we dropped Knox’s swaddle last week. (AKA we stopped swaddling him at night in his crib, and let him sleep in just a sleeper…it takes babies getting used to since they’re not wrapped up tight mimicking life in the womb anymore.) I know it’s silly, but all of the sudden it feels like his 18th birthday is right around the corner…

(I know, I know, it’s not…but how old does he look sitting up in his Bumbo????)

Just like moving Knox to his crib and his own room, I made the decision spontaneously, so anticipating it wouldn’t make me anxious or overly sad.

Watch Knox Grow // 3 Months

Knox 3 month Collage

Well, we are officially through the “Fourth Trimester,” as I’ve heard it called. And although Knox is a really good baby, I can understand why the first 3 months received that nickname.

A Bible You Can Cuddle.

I have always LOVED to read. When I was younger I remember being so engrossed in one of the Harry Potter books, (at one of those really intense, “will Harry get killed this time??” moments,) that when my mom opened my bedroom door, I jumped off the bed and the book went flying from my hands. I love getting so lost in a book it felt like you were living life in those pages.

I know so much of our culture spends its’ time in front of the TV, but I want him to experience the creativity of picturing what the characters look like, instead of that information being easily provided for him on a screen.

A Different Kind of March Madness.

I do realize that by using the phrase “March Madness” in the name of this post, it may give the impression that it has something to do with basketball or sports in general. It doesn’t, sorry. It’s actually about something I have decided to do for the month of March, that may seem like madness to some people (including me! Ha!)
