The Organic Family Cookbook – Review

The Organic Family Cookbook is a fantastic cookbook, but is much more than just a cookbook. Throughout the book there are “Together” tips that give great ways to grow, cook, and be “green” as a family. This cookbook takes being a family to a whole new level!

Thanksgiving 2012 – What I’m Thankful For

My husband posted about what he was thankful for last year, and I wanted to take a few minutes and write about some things that I am thankful for. I want to start by saying that I am thankful that I am just now writing this on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. My husband is currently driving us back from Tybee Island, Georgia where we spent Thanksgiving with family, so that is the first thing I am thankful for. I am thankful for the family that we got to spend time with. Abby enjoyed spending time with her family, but especially her cousin “Fennedy” and Uncle “Gornon,” who, as we drive back, she keeps asking for. I am thankful for the beautiful weather that we had and the delicious food that we had (a traditional Thanksgiving meal as well as lots of crab and fresh shrimp!).

Top Ten Books for Your Baby

Reading is so important to the development of a child. It is a great time to spend time with your child as they are learning new things. Starting the habit early is always a great and easy way to prepare them for school too! There are so many good books out there that it was really almost impossible to choose 10, but I just chose the ones that my daughter chose to read the most in her first year and a half of life. I’m sure you could add many to this list and we would love if you would comment with your child’s favorites. Also, check out our other post on 7 Benefits to Reading to your Child.

Children’s Consignment Sales in Louisville this Fall

I'm guest posting today over on with all of the local children's consignment sales this fall season. Back in February I posted about why parents MUST shop kids consignment sales, and I was glad to have the opportunity to share a post with all the sales. If you live in the greater Louisville Area, you need to go make a note of all the upcoming sales and save lots of money on clothes, toys, baby accessories, and anything you could ever need for your child.

Daily Baby Food Meal Planning

Some of you have asked what we do to get our food from the frozen "food cube" state to being ready for our daughter to eat. The answer is simple, and requires just a little planning ahead. Every evening after our daughter goes to bed, we wash the containers from the previous day. We found some great ones at Babies R Us that are small, have sections, and seal tight. They were perfect for sending her to our moms’ or to daycare for the day. But any containers will do. Here is a breakdown of what a sample day of meals may look like for our daughter
