Fun Valentine’s Day Photos

Valentine's Day Photos

Happy Valentine's Day from Jake! Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to take some silly, cheesy photos and you know I can't resist a good photo shoot. Last year I got these great photos of Jake when he was one and turned them into postcards for the family. We had so much fun that day as a family and I knew I wanted to do something again this year. Only problem is that photographing a two-year-old is a whole new challenge! I mean when I ask him to smile, I get this weird contorted face,...

Holiday Style from Borrow Mini Couture

Remember last year when we featured an incredible online designer children's clothing rental service that's perfect for special events? Well, the site, Borrow Mini Couture, has been completely revamped, has added six new designers AND carries boys clothing now! We all know how fast our little cherubs grow and it doesn't always make sense to invest serious dollars in an ensemble that they'll only wear a time or two. That's where Borrow Mini Couture comes in. You can outfit your kiddos for a special occasion in their rented insured pieces for a fraction of the price...

Scooting Around Town with the Stokke Scoot

I love getting out and about with Jake on the weekends. He's at an age where even a garden center holds magical treasures and fun around every bend. From sniffing bright flowers to playing with wind chimes a visit for him is pure joy. He's also at an age (almost 2!) where he wants to walk on his own a lot and be independent. Which is great!  Except for when he tires out, or slows me down when we're rushing, or just plain changes his mind because dang he's almost 2 and that happens ALL...

Our Boden Fall Family Style & Giveaway

It's rare that I find a brand that I like for both myself and the kiddos, so when I do, I get all kinds of excited about it! Being a busy mama, one stop shopping definitely has its perks. Boden, for instance, offers super stylish fashions for you AND your wee ones! Now that we've changed seasons, Megan and I are in the process of updating the BonBon babies' wardrobes for fall and winter. Those crazy cats of ours are shooting up like weeds! When we were offered to chance to pick a few things from...

Family Vacation and Turning Uno

For the past week you may have noticed that it was a little quiet on the "Megan" front.  That's because I slipped away for a family vacation to unplug for a bit.  It was the first time all three of us have traveled on a trip together other than to see family and it was great!  We decided to head to Cancun, Mexico because we had been there before and knew it was a relatively easy trip.  Also, if you wait for it, you can get incredible deals, which being just before the high season we were able to...

Halloween with Westfield Family

Who doesn't love seeing little ones all decked out in their oh so cute Halloween costumes? I think they are all just ridiculously adorable, so we decided to go to the Westfield Family Spooktacular Costume Contest with our own wee kiddo. There was only one issue however. Jake flat out refused to wear his lion costume that I had so carefully selected. Sure, it was a little snug and included a furry head piece, but I was pinning my hopes on having our very own first adorable Halloween on that costume. In the end though, rather...

Westfield Family Day with Sportacus


Last weekend I was so excited to take Jake to our local Westfield Mall in Annapolis for KidFest, a totally free day for kids that featured the characters from LazyTown along with several other family friendly activities. Even at just 9 months he was totally enthralled with the event and we, along with my friend's family, had a wonderful time! While Jake is still a little young to really understand cartoons, he had no problem fitting right in and making himself pretty comfy with Sportacus, the main LazyTown character who promotes exercise and healthy eating. Maybe it's the mustache or that awesome...
