Halloween 2009

This year we did a nursury rhymes theme. I didn’t let Xander get out of it either. LOL Except he “lost” his mouse ears.

Happy Birthday Virginia!

Yesterday was a big day in our home. Tiny Miss Vee turned one year old! Her day was absolutely perfect. We started the day with breakfast (whole milk yogurt) in bed. They are never too young to participate in our traditions! Then we picked up the house for her party and went shopping for last […]

Quick Update

I realize that I haven’t written an update here in a while. There is a reason for that. We have decided to sell our home and move to a new larger home. I have been working like crazy painting and dejunking and I probably will be doing a lot more of that for the next […]

Virginia’s latest weight check

I took Virginia in for her weight check on Monday. It had been 6 weeks since we last saw the doctor. I was hoping for over 15lbs but no dice. She is only 14lbs 13oz at 10.5 months old which is only a 7oz gain in six weeks time. She was sick, but the doctor […]

Featured Etsy Store

Virginia is not as fond of modelling as Rani is. LOL! She was so cranky! This is the first of several model shoots that she will be doing for Whimsy Couture’s new spring line. I LOVE these clothes! They are fresh and spunky and girly. Check out her store! Whimsy Couture

Thankful for Sickness

Today I was reading on Ginger’s blog and came across this poem With rosy cheek and droopy eye She hears her mamma’s lullaby. And snuggled safe to Mamma’s chest She breaths; She sighs; At last she rests. For some reason all the emotion I have been holding in all week just came spilling out of […]

10 months old!

I can’t believe baby Virginia is already 10 months old. The time goes by much much too quickly. It has finally warmed up here a bit so we were able to do some pictures out of doors. If you look closely you might be able to see her snaggle tooth in the last picture. It’s […]

New Pediatrician and a new tooth!

Virginia saw her new pediatrician last week. She had only gained 6 oz in 3 weeks but the doctor said while she is definitely petite, she looks and acts perfectly healthy. He too, wants to watch her closely so we will see him again in 6 weeks, but he is very supportive of me breastfeeding. […]

You’re Fired!

I had such a frustrating experience with my kids’ pediatrician today. I am sure you all know my struggles with Virginia’s weight and month after month of weight checks that leave me feeling inadequate and ridiculous. Today was the king of all inadequacies, the day I was told in not so many words that by […]

The Decision

I truly hope it ends up being the right decision, but I have decided not to pierce Virginia’s ears. I just don’t feel like the benefits outweigh the risks. Also I have prayed and prayed about it and it just doesn’t feel right. Thank you to all of you who shared your stories and experience […]

Photoshop Magic

I got the perfect picture to try this on today. I used photoshop to add little earrings to her ears to see what they would look like. What do you think? With or without? Without With

Infant Ear Piercing: What would you do?

OK, I am going to put this out there, mostly because I am trying to sort out my feelings on the subject but also because I am curious as to what others’ opinions are on the subject of infant ear piercing. For many years I have been against ear piercing for infants. I had many […]

Introducing the official Modern Expressions Blog! I am so excited to be separating the two blogs finally. This is something I have wanted to do for a while now but I just haven’t been able to get it done. It’s wonderful to have a format that allows me to display bigger images and I am […]
