All the Babies

I have to say there are so many lovely kiddos in my life.  Be it my grandbabes or Princess Emma or our brand new baby SJ who arrived yesterday.  So happy to finally get to meet him.

Of course with kiddos the instinct is to protect and provide for them.  It seems to be automatic to me.  So every time I grow close to a child I start thinking of what I could do to help make their life easier.  Currently I wish I could give SJ a calm loving bedroom for him to come home to.  This is the one I would pick if I could.
I love The Very Hungry Caterpillar so much.  It lets me know how much life is ever changing.  This is a set up that will be coming to the Pottery Barn soon.  Watch out for it.

Another bedroom I love would be for Princess Emma.  She recently moved into her pink bedroom that Other Mother and Papa have been working on for her.  Don't you think this would work out too?

Another item I want to share soon is the new Dinosaur Train book, Dinosaur Train Lift the Flap “Let’s Go To Volcano Valley,” from Reader’s Digest.  It will be on my list for my Grandbabe.  He loves Dinosaur Train and Buddy.  Add in the books that they read every night, he would be very interactive with this one.  It is a perfect present for him.    I am excited that the grandbabes will be coming to visit with me very soon.  It has been over a month.  I think I am going into nonnie withdrawal.

What do we plan on doing?  Well I have a large collection of rocks here at my home.  It was built by a mason.  And some of the most interesting rocks are right here in my back yard.  So I thought that in honor of National Recreation and Parks Month we would do a rock hunt.  Add in our lil pool for water time, it seems we can cool off too!  Summertime is here and what better way to spend the summer with family and friends than on an adventure to visit one of our national parks and/or recreation destinations. July is Park and Recreation Month in the U.S., and the theme for this year’s celebration is “Rock Your Park.”  Since we can not do a major trip, I thought a 'stay-cation' right here would work.  What do you suggest we add in? 


  1. From my dear niece,Milligan Heather: Congrats on the newest grandbabe're idea for the two bdrms are great ideas've always had a creative sense about you..Have a great day ..xoxoxox..HMM

  2. I saw a craft the other day was to take rocks and heat them up in the oven and then use crayons to color on them. I have not tried this yet but they looked really cool.

  3. Here is a link to that craft Tammy told me about.
