When I found out I was pregnant with Paige, my first task was to find a new OB as my previous doctor was no longer practicing.  A new hospital had recently opened not far from us and I knew they had a maternity ward so I started my search with the doctor’s office located at […]


Sibling Gifts from Baby

by Jill & Cathy on February 6, 2014

Having a gift ready from baby for his or her siblings is a great way to help prevent any feelings of jealousy when the new baby arrives.  Before Paige arrived, I spent time thinking about the perfect gifts for our 7 and 9 year old boys.  For younger siblings, I think it is important to […]


In preparation for Paige’s birth, I made thank you gifts for the nurses at the hospital.  I had seen small thank yous on Pinterest and loved the idea of giving something to the nurses that help with the baby’s birth and first days.  We had such a great experience at the hospital this time, I […]

It got us to talking about that trip to the hospital when all the excitement (and perhaps […]


Beatles Inspired Nursery Prints

by Jill & Cathy on December 1, 2013

Paige’s nursery is slowly being taken over by pink.  It wasn’t a part of the plan but after two boys, it just happened.  In an attempt to balance the overwhelming amount of pink, I created some prints to frame and hang, adding a little bit of Tiffany blue to the pink.  These files are jpegs […]


Cathy’s Pregnancy Must Haves

by Jill & Cathy on November 3, 2013

When you are pregnant for the first time, you are bombarded with ads and magazines that tell you everything that you MUST HAVE in order to survive your pregnancy.  You will be spending enough money once your baby is here, so it’s helpful to narrow that list down a little bit.  You want to spend […]
