My Two Kids

My baby is 7 months old today! WOW! I thought time went fast with our daughter, and now with our second baby it's going even faster. I can't believe it's been 7 months since we brought him home from the hospital...where does the time go?! In just a few short months he will be 1 and our daughter will be 3. It's hard to believe, but at the same time, is very exciting! I love nothing more than watching them grow and hit new milestones all the time.

Kaelyn is still talking up a storm and loves to strike a conversation with anyone she meets. Scott and I always say she'll have no problem making friends when she enters school. She's mommy's little helper and LOVES her little brother to pieces.

Kaden is SO close to crawling. He gets up on his hands and knees and has even gone forward a little bit. He gets frustrated though, and falls to his tummy. Within no time he'll be all over the place I'm sure. He's also starting to babble which is so cute. He loves to try and copy what we do and say.

I love my two kids to pieces. I feel very blessed to be their mom.

This is a guest post by Marian Garland

One of the best shows available for children right now is " iCarly ." This show depicts the life of Carly, the main character on the program with her own television program. Carly and her best friend run their own television show. I love watching this program on direct tv with my kids, because it teaches them that great success can come with hard work.

What I also like about this program is how it teaches children to have an entrepreneurial spirit. This program inspires kids to be bold and daring. I also like this show, because as a parent, it inspires me to adapt to technology. The main characters are always using technology, like online videos and websites, to relate to the community. As a parent, I am inspired to also try to use technology in positive ways like Carly and her friends. Parents will enjoy watching this show with children for what they can also take away from the program.

Another reason this show is great for children is because it does not rush kids to grow up too fast. I think this program is great for kids ages 8-14. The show does not pressure kids to engage in bad behaviors, but rather reinforces how good it can feel to do the right thing. Overall, I highly recommend "iCarly."

Father's Day

We had such a wonderful weekend! Scott got to go golfing with my dad for father's day which is something they both really enjoy. Then Sunday we just relaxed...all took naps and enjoyed the day as a family. We don't get too many weekends where we can just relax, so it was nice that we finally did. Father's Day was wonderful and a day I hope Scott really enjoyed too. He deserves it...he's a terrific dad!

Dream Family Vacation to Kissimmee

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Kissimmee Tourism. All opinions are 100% mine.

After such a long and cold winter, hubby and I have been seriously discussing going on a great family vacation. I'm the only one out of the family who has been to Florida, so that's top on our list. In researching places and things to do...I came across Kissimmee. As a child, I was able to visit the Kissimmee area several times and just loved it. It's known as the heart of Florida and being right next to're sure to have plenty to do between the beaches, theme parks and more!

What makes Kissimmee the ideal vacation spot, is that it's close to everything! Whether you're looking to spend a day at the beach or go to Florida's amazing theme'll find a little of everything. In just the short time I've been planning our vacation so far, I've already come up with an itinerary of things I would definitely want to do while we were there.

I'd love to visit Walt Disney World again for sure! It's such a magical place for young children and one I know my kids would absolutely love! There's so much to do there, and it's certainly a vacation memory that would last for years to come.

I'd also want enjoy a little shopping and eating in Celebration. I've been there once and loved the feel of this place. I think my hubby would just love it!

Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park is also a place I think would be great to take the kids!

As far as a place to stay, I haven't quite decided, but think it would be great to stay at the Radisson Orlando Celebration Resort! It looks beautiful, is close to a lot of things and has a lot of great features.

I am really looking forward to the possibility of making this dream vacation a reality! The things to do and the places to stay are absolutely endless. It will be a vacation to remember always...that's for sure! If you'd like to plan your dream vacation to Kissimmee, visit here today!

6 Months Old!

Is it really possible that my baby is 6 months old already? We took him to get his 6 month pictures last week and it sunk in just how fast the time is going. In 6 months he will be 1 year old already (and Kaelyn will be 3!). WOW! His pictures went fantastic...he's such a smiley little guy! I love where we go to have them done, because they give us a CD with all the pictures and a full copyright release so we can use/share them as we wish.
