Mikette–Happy Hour

Mikette–Happy Hour

Hey guys! Friday after work I got to go out and be MegGoesNomNom at Happy Hour for a bit, instead of just being BabyGoesNomNom’s Mama. Okay, I’m always BGNN’s mama and I love it, but sometimes it is nice to get and do some things sans-toddler as well. A co-worker joined me in checking out … Continue reading

Denny’s + Baby’s First Haircut

Denny’s + Baby’s First Haircut

You guys, I miss sleeping in. It’s pretty much an impossibility with a 14 month old who loves waking up early (thank goodness he likes getting up closer to 6:15 lately compared to 4:00-5:00am as a younger baby!) I know one day it’ll happen again. Love that kid. One thing that makes the weekend early … Continue reading

Fall Fun with my Cutie

Fall Fun with my Cutie

Do you ever just really feel like you won the jackpot? With this kid, I do. Somehow we ended up with the cutest, sweetest, funniest happy little guy. That’s not to say we don’t have challenging and frustrating moments each day, but at the end of each day, I really just feel like I don’t … Continue reading

Trying the CEO Burger at BurgerFi in Ann Arbor

Hello friends! Guess what I have for you today. A restaurant review! It’s been a while, I know. Heading into the unknown with a 13 month old can be a little daunting sometimes, so our restaurant adventures have been tamer and more infrequent as of late. However,  BurgerFi recently invited the family in to try … Continue reading

J’s First Birthday Party!

J’s First Birthday Party!

A couple weeks ago we had a party to celebrate J’s first birthday at our house. Since we moved into our new house last summer, this was the first real big gathering we’d had, so it was sort of a housewarming for us in a sense too. Though most of the party took place in … Continue reading

Jack’s Perfect Pumpkin Oats

Jack’s Perfect Pumpkin Oats

One of J’s most frequently consumed foods – since starting solids! – has been oatmeal. This kid has always loved oatmeal and eats it at least 5 of 7 days per week. Probably when he was around 7 months old I began giving him oatmeal. I milled the whole oats in my blender until they … Continue reading

A Day in the Life–10 Months

A Day in the Life–10 Months

I personally love reading other bloggers’ “Day in the Life” posts to get a glimpse into their lives. I find it especially interesting to read these recaps when bloggers have little ones at home, to get a peek at what life might be like when our 10 month old is older, or to reminisce about … Continue reading

Summer Funnin’

Summer Funnin’

It’s been a good while since I’ve posted any life updates on here so I thought I’d pop in to share some fun summer moments we’ve been having! Father’s Day – I bought the huz and baby J matching shirts: Player 1 and Player 2 (huz is a big gamer!) We also went out for … Continue reading

Homemade Baby Food

Homemade Baby Food

As anticipated, I’m here to write a post about homemade baby food. When Jack turned six months almost old, three weeks ago, we began solids. We chose to follow our pediatrician’s advice to hold off on solids until he was six months old. His food first was avocado, pureed with a tiny amount of water. … Continue reading
