New Years Day & first day in pigtails.
The day I planned her cake smash photos for her first birthday... she rubbed Vaseline all over her hair! Tip: Dawn Dish Detergent gets it out! This is also the year we learned all about packing healthy meals for our growing daughter.
A fever to ring in her birthday... but that amazing cake just made everything better!
Laundry, laundry, laundry.
I learned a lot after posting this photo of our fridge. My Facebook friends immediately & kindly let me know the dangers that lurked inside those cartons. It led to a lot of time researching the benefits of each of these. I had no idea how unhealthy large amounts of soy can be for you. We haven't had any of these products in our home for a year now. No soymilk whatsoever. We've drifted away from almond milk (although I don't have anything against that tasty drink!), and we don't even get fat free or 2% anymore-- only whole milk for this family. We also get a different brand of milk to avoid high temperature pasteurization, which can deplete healthy nutrients. We may pay a little more for our milk now, but we definitely get the best bang for our buck health-wise. It's no longer just liquid, it's nourishment.
Unexpected beach vacation blessings.

Gymnastics class! She was great at it.
And many, many adorable faces.
