Painting!

For his entire life, the kiddo has loved exploring how paint feels on his body. When he was little he used to “wash his hands” with paint.  This year he is painting our wrapping paper for Christmas gifts (we love adding personal touches to things), and he had the time of his life laying down on the rolled out wrapping and painting with different parts of his body. I snuck this pic while he was laying down on his stomach and essentially making a paint “snow angel” while giggling to his heart’s content. Read more »

Glimpse Into Our Parenting Style

Keaton and I put a lot of effort into making sure we are parenting in a mindful, fun, nurturing environment. Right now we are reading The Whole-Brain Child to help us navigate some bumpy waters that come with being 3. It’s been so helpful! It even has a section at the end of each chapter for the kids to learn the concepts Read more »

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

We have spent the weekend doing Christmas prep and it’s been a blast! One of the traditions in our family is to take Christmas pics of the kiddo every year. We have one from each year framed and it’s so fun to watch him grow up Christmas by Christmas. This is a tradition Jessa’s mom did for her and her brother growing Read more »

Books!

We LOVE books! Many of our chosen family do, too. Today our friend Auntie Meisha stoped by with her kiddo to drop off a present for ours! It was a book about finding his name. Meisha read it and her daughter acted the whole thing out by her side. It was so thoughtful!! Read more »

Thanksgiving Prep

Thanksgiving is a tricky holiday for us because we love the elements of gratitude and sharing a feast with family, but we want to be mindful of what it represents for Indigenous Americans. For now, we focus on everyone doing their part to show love through acts of service to prepare the meal, and learning about/honoring Read more »

Pies!

Busy weekend for us! Taking a break from Jessa’s show (it’s performance week for the high school show I choreographed) to make pies with Keaton’s family! Well, everyone else made pies while Jessa and the kiddo swam in Grandma’s pool. Read more »

Thrifting day!

It’s important to us to reduce waste and give our son open-ended toys made from natural or recycled materials. We hit the jackpot today at our local thrift shop! Got all of these treasures for $20! As you can see, the kiddo could hardly wait to get playing. Read more »

Mom/Kiddo date!

Keaton and I each take turns making sure we get quality one on one time with the kiddo. Today I got to take him to the Museum of Natural History! He especially loved the dinos Read more »

The Kiddo Can’t Wait.

The kiddo is so excited to be a big brother! He drew this picture of a big brother and baby fish to give to baby once they’re home with us. Read more »

Birth Parents Matter!

Real talk: as a birthing parent you are so important to us!!! We have obviously never had an unplanned pregnancy (but that would be crazy, right?!), but we can imagine it comes with a lot of potential guilt and judgment. That feels unfair. We know we can’t change that everywhere, but we wanted you to know that isn’t the Read more »
