12 lessons from my first year of parenting

It's been a hot second since I've written something for my blog. I've been in sort of a writing slump the past few weeks, honestly. I have all these ideas of things I want to write about but then Jameson goes down for a nap and I have to choose between writing for my blog… Continue reading 12 lessons from my first year of parenting

Jameson’s First Birthday Party

Two Saturdays ago we celebrated the Jimmiest Jam turning ONE with some of our wonderful friends and family! I've actually been trying to write this post for several days now, but my site has been acting up and it's been taking forever to get it all finished. But I think we're good now. 😉 We… Continue reading Jameson’s First Birthday Party

12 months of Jameson

Can you believe it?! We're here! One whole year with this sweet baby boy. I don't fully believe it yet, even though yesterday was his birthday and all the announcements and pictures from the day he was born keep popping up on my Timehop. Somehow I still think this must all be some kind of… Continue reading 12 months of Jameson

A Day With Jameson, At home, Life with Jameson

Jameson is almost one!

Our baby boy's first birthday is fast approaching (next Monday, how?!) and we wanted to do something special as a family to celebrate his first year of life and all the wonderful ways he makes our lives better. So yesterday we had a photographer friend (Marissa Adams, of Lux & Arrow Photography) come to our… Continue reading Jameson is almost one!

DIY // Front door makeover

Yay!!! I finally finished my first home improvement project for our new house and I'm so excited about how it turned out! Ever since I can remember it's been a dream of mine to live in a house with a red front door. And even though our new house has almost everything on my dream… Continue reading DIY // Front door makeover

Jameson Monthly, Life with Jameson

11 Months of Jameson

Things are getting interesting around here. 😉 Now that Jameson is walking like a pro (well, like a drunken sailor. But still much better than he was last month), he's getting a lot more independent and a lot more outspoken about what he wants to do. Part of this is not so fun (e.g., he… Continue reading 11 Months of Jameson

CA 2016 // Laguna, Disneyland, + California Adventure

We just got back from our five day stay in California and I couldn't wait to write up a summary of our vacation! Partly because I don't want to forget anything, and partly because I just have a deep love for these pictures and wanted to share them as soon as possible. I took Jameson… Continue reading CA 2016 // Laguna, Disneyland, + California Adventure

A Day With Jameson – 7.19.16

A few years ago I came across a series of photos on Pinterest of a little boy named Grant. The series was called "Life with Grant" and the photos were simple, everyday moments captured beautifully by his mother. Completely natural and unposed. It stuck with me all these years, and today I want to share… Continue reading A Day With Jameson – 7.19.16

The call to motherhood

In the Spring of 2014 I held my breath and opened an email from Arizona State University. This was it, everything I had been working towards since my freshman year of high school when I decided, quite definitively for a fourteen year old, to pursue a career in Speech Pathology. It all came down to… Continue reading The call to motherhood

Ten months of Jameson

Ten months is so much fun! I thought I would be more emotional as we get closer and closer to Jameson's first birthday, but I'm honestly just loving every new stage. Each month is better than the last and I love seeing Jameson learn and experience new things. Alex says this is his favorite stage… Continue reading Ten months of Jameson
