  • Stuff Lexi Says: 27-30 months Edition

    To me this was the cutest age for sayings, because of how funny the sentence structure sometimes was and the words she used. Then at exactly 2.5 years she suddenly started…

    I don’t know if this will work for everyone, but we have come up with a calming technique that really helps diffuse an upset that is about to turn into a tantrum. Around…

  • Beach Evenings with Friends

    It’s summer now, so it’s almost too hot to go out, even in the evenings except on cooler days. It should  cool down in a month or so, but in the…

  • 2nd Birthday Party Outfits: Swan Lake
