Simon Says – Our Speech Therapy Experience

posted by Andrea | 05/26/2017 | 33 comments

As some of you may remember, Simon never talked (like literally never even said one word) until he was about 18-20 months old… and now we can’t get him to stop talking!

Today, I’m sharing more about our speech therapy experience, as well as some helpful tips and ideas for those of you with a “speechless” toddler in your life.

Simon is 3!

posted by Andrea | 03/7/2017 | 33 comments

Our sweet, silly, stubborn Simon celebrated his THIRD birthday this past Saturday… and we partied in true “Simon fashion” with a Firefighter birthday party complete with donuts, juice, and candy (all his favorite things).

Today I’m sharing a bit more about Simon, and a bunch of pictures from his party!

A Big-Boy Bed for Simon

posted by Andrea | 03/10/2016 | 15 comments

Now that Simon is officially 2 years old, we have started to talk about transitioning him into a “big boy bed”. We’re not planning to rush into anything, but we did want to get the bed all set up and in place so we’re ready when HE is ready.

Today, I’m sharing the new Leesa mattresses we got for Simon’s bed (and I have a great coupon code for anyone looking to purchase a new mattress!)

Simon is 2! (Plus His School Bus Party)

posted by Andrea | 03/7/2016 | 26 comments

My sweet, squinty-eyed Simon turned 2 on Friday and we had so much fun celebrating at his School Bus birthday party this past weekend!

Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite things about Simon — and lots of cute pictures of his party!

Simon’s Big Boy Room

posted by Andrea | 07/20/2015 | 14 comments

Simon literally “moved up” in the world… because he is now sleeping in his new big boy bedroom, which is upstairs by Nora’s bedroom.

The transition went pretty smoothly, and although we have lots more plans for this room, I’m excited to share our mini makeover (I still can’t believe it cost less than $150 to pull off!)

Simon @ 15 Months. Nora @ 3.5 Years.

Since Simon and Nora both recently ‘celebrated’ a few big milestones — and since they are changing SO much — I figured it was time for an updated post on my two crazy munchkins!

Feeding Simon: Why I Chose Bottles

posted by Andrea | 05/21/2015 | 44 comments

Now that Simon is almost 15 months old, I feel like it’s time to officially publish this post.

I’ve been compiling ideas and content for this post for over a year now — and I’m SOOOOO excited to finally be sharing it with you, especially since I’ve gotten many questions about how I liked using bottles with baby #2!!

Our Very First Family Vacation!

We made it… whew!

Our very first family vacation with kids and I didn’t forget anything, we had a lot of fun, and we all made it home safe and sound (I kind of feel like I deserve a medal or something!)

Simon’s Thomas the Train 1st Birthday Party

posted by Andrea | 03/10/2015 | 21 comments

Last week, Simon had a birthday… and this past weekend, we had the privilege of celebrating with him!

Although Simon had a double ear infection and I ran out of frosting for the cake, it was a very fun, festive, and frugal first birthday party — and lots of memories were made!

Simon @ 1 Year!!

Yes, you read the title of this post correctly — baby Simon is a whole year old already!!

Compared to Nora’s first year, I feel like Simon’s first year just FLEW by — after all, wasn’t it just last week when we took our squishy baby home from the hospital?

Simon @ 9 Months

posted by Andrea | 12/4/2014 | 21 comments

Maybe it’s the fact that the holiday season is crazy busy, or that Simon is the 2nd child, or that the months are going by SOOO fast — but I honestly almost forgot about today’s 9 month post!

It wasn’t until just a couple days ago that I remembered (while in the shower, of course) that… DUH, my little boy is 9 months old on December 4th.
