RASPBERRIES FOR ZOE


Do you know the book, "Blueberries for Sal"? I read it to Zoe every so often and when we were going raspberry picking I just kept thinking of this book. More berries were consumed than picked (whoops), and luckily we didn't loose Zoe to any bears. However, we did lose her to some horses. It felt like we were in Tuscany out in the middle of no where in the blazing sun and then we turn down another vine path and standing right there are the prettiest horses! We had this little hidden pathway and horses all to ourselves. So magical! Here's to a magical summer!

My happy guy. He could eat raspberries all day if you let him. He took picking so seriously, and kept telling me how important it is to "not pull, they should just fall off." 

Thanks for sharing your half eaten, warm raspberry Zoe 😶😂

Sneaking berries. She thought she was so clever 😉

This horse was obsessed with Zoe. She kept following us everywhere we went. It was super cute. Zoe kept feeding her grass, and she was so proud of herself! I took a million pictures of them two but I'll spare you with just these few! 

 
Those rosy cheeks are just about the sweetest. She's just like her daddy and gets red faced so easily when she is hot. And no matter what she always gets dirt on her face. Fingers in mouth ALWAYS!

See you next year Remlinger Farms. You're our favorite!

LET'S BE HONEST MAMAS: Technology with Kids


Life update! I feel like Zoe has hit the terrible two's early. She's still the funniest, craziest, happiest, talkative, little bundle of joy ever, but homegirl has got a sassy side. Welcome those throwing, hitting, kicking, rolling on the floor screaming tantrums. Luckily nothing out in public (like the grocery store) just yet, but man those toddler tantrums are real! So much of her tantrums come from her not being able to express herself just yet. Because she's so independent she wants to be able to do things all on her own and when she can't she just gets so frustrated with herself. And I don't blame her, I'm the same way! Another trigger for her tantrums is the phone. As soon as she sees a cellphone she wants to play with it immediately. If we let her she could watch videos of herself alllllll day long! I basically hide my phone until Zoe goes down for her naps or when she goes down for the night. Which brings me to today's post!

It's another Let's Be Honest Mamas post (you can read all about that and how it started here). A big shout out to our girl Hannah for bringing us together! And today we are talking all about technology with little ones. Of course the use of technology with kids is such a personal opinion, so please when you read on know that what I have chosen to do is what works for me and my family! Okay, now that that is out of the way let's get to it.

MADLY WISH


I wish that you could hear her laugh through these photos. She has the best laugh!! My baby girl is a full blown toddler now and I have to say I love it! As much as I miss little baby snuggles, seeing her personality blossom is just the greatest! Just a little bit about 19 month old Zoe. She is obsessed with wrestling, being chased, tickles, throwing balls, everything about being outside and playing with rocks and dirt. We bought her her own little baby doll and stroller and now she's all over that too. I even came downstairs to find her pretending to change her baby's diaper. It's amazing just seeing how Zoe observes and absorbs everything around her. She loves to say "dadadadadadadada" alllllll day. She also says "baby", "daddy", "puppy", "go away" (not sure where she learned that from, ha), "what's this?", "ball", "mama" (only when she's really sad), ummmm, I know she says a few more things but I'm drawing a blank right now. She's a dream baby going down for naps and bed time. She just gabs and gabs to herself until she falls asleep.

Speaking of sleep, isn't this the cutest crib sheet you have ever seen? They are from Madly Wish! They are so soft, vibrant and stretch to fit all sizes for crib mattresses. Make sure to check out their other pieces here, because they are seriously the greatest! Also their customer service is the bees knees!

Make sure to "read more" to see more pictures of Zoe rolling around!

WE'RE GOING ON A PICNIC









This has definitely been the rainiest year in the PNW that I can remember. Bursts of sunshine have been few and far between, but any sign of good weather you can bet we are out the door. Zoe is such an outdoor girl, rain or shine she's happy. The other week we hit the low 70's (which felt like heaven), so we took our little family on a picnic to the park. Apples are on constant repeat at our place so apples it was. Love my little family!
