If I had to sum up being a mom in only one word it would be amazement.
I’m sure you are thinking of all the words why pick amazement, but that is simple-children are amazing. As adults we look back at our childhoods and fondly remember birthdays, holidays and special people who played roles in our lives. As we get older and finish school and begin our adult lives we tend to lose sight of what we loved most as kids. Then the day comes when we have a child of our own, in my case a 4 year old daughter. Having her in my life has opened my eyes to so many things that over time I tended to overlook. As our lives get more complicated and busy often the simplest and sometimes special moments do not get the notice they should.

When I knew that we were going to be giving our at-that-time 18-month-old daughter a baby sister around the time of her second birthday, I was nervous. As a stay-at-home mama, AppleBlossom was what my world revolved around. How in the world was I going to be everything I needed to be to keep her happy and provide for the new baby? I need not have worried. They are natural sisters and obviously each other’s joy.
The first sign was when we were in the hospital only a few hours after OrangeBlossom’s arrival and she went on an adventure to the nursery for a bath. AppleBlossom was alert and looking around and demanding that she be told where her baby sister was. OrangeBlossom was hers from the beginning and she is in charge, I just happen to be here.

Spring is here! The weather is warming up, the flowers and trees are beginning to bloom, and the days are longer. So what better way to bring in the season with your little one than with some fun springtime activities? Check out a few fun ways to celebrate the new season below!
Make hand flowers
Capture this special moment in your baby’s life by tracing his/her little hands on colorful paper. Once you’ve traced their hands a few times, cut each one out and tie, glue or staple them onto a plastic straw for a fun springtime bouquet. You’ll be sure to treasure their tiny “handmade” flowers for years to come!
Excite your little one by taking baby to a local petting zoo. You’ll love watching their reactions as they get to meet, pet and interact with different types of animals. Be sure to bring your camera!
