This boy. He is the light of my life. Seriously. That smile, those eyes, the chubby little fingers that grab on to everything the comes near. His teeny tiny nose, his soft fuzzy hair. I love him more than I could ever explain. And he sure loves me too.
Today is twelve weeks since this sweet boy came into our lives. His smile makes me smile a thousand times a day. Last night, I got to smile at him at midnight, again around one, again at two, then three, four, and five AM. I got up at 6am and gave him to his
I don’t know if I will ever have a spare second to blog again, but tonight I’m determined to get this boys birth story written. The big boys are camping with Ryan, and Mathew and I have the house to ourselves. I have peace and quiet for the first

Ok kiddo. It’s ok with me. Message received loud and clear
This pregnancy has flown by faster than I can believe. I’m 34 weeks right now, which means this kiddo could be coming anywhere between 3-6 weeks from now. I wanted to document every bit of this experience as I know this guy will be our last baby, but life, morning sickness, gestational diabetes

It only took us 5 years but we finally had a successful (peaceful) trip to the library. The boys are growing up! Our usual trips would end with someone standing on a table or building a fort out of pillows and librarians giving me “the look”, but this time everything worked. Maybe

Hi! I'm Suzanne. I'm an unconventional and optimistic homeschooling mama, learning about life along side my two (soon to be THREE) wild boys and totally awesome husband. I am passionate about real food, natural health and holistic nutrition. My kids and I are gluten free (and part dairy/egg/soy free). I also love photography and writing. Someday I would like to make a career out of all those interests, but for now this blog is my creative outlet to share what I learn and do along my way. I hope you enjoy what you see!
