Babies in Bloom Baby Fest Recap

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending and speaking at the Babies in Bloom Baby Fest in Northern California, about an hour from San Diego.  The entire experience was wonderful and I was having so much fun and living in the moment so intensely that I found myself forgetting to use my camera […]

A look at “Life After Diapers”

It has been about 8 months since Everett potty trained.  This time in my life can now be referred to as “AD.”  I suppose the previous 5 years were “DD” and pre-kids my life was “BD.” Life “BD” is nothing like “DD.”  Even though there aren’t diapers to wash, there is still plenty of other […]

Rosas Family Christmas 2013- The Video

Since 2010 I have made a video of our Christmas mornings as a family.  If you read the blog regularly you know that I take on the role of “historian” for our family, doing most of the photography and video.  Since most people don’t go back to watch the long footage of their videos I […]

To Grandmother’s House We Go!

Today we are off to Oma’s house in North Carolina for a quick visit.  It’s been about six months since our last trip so we are all excited to see family and friends for a few days.  That also means I’ll be away from my computer and taking a blog break until next week. I’m […]

The Family That Games Together…

Fletcher, my soon to be 5 year old, was my first baby.  He is still my cuddler and his happiest moments are always when he lays his head on my stomach.  He says “I love your tummy, mommy.” and lays there completely content.  There are times when he is being difficult and we are both […]
