Family vacation week began with our first overnight trip since Shiloh was born. (Last trip was the beach before Asher could walk or talk). We picked a safe and comfortable option: spending the night with cousins. Asher vaguely remembered playing with Luke, so he was fairly excited about a sleepover there. The next morning, we…

I’ve been coming to Stone Harbor, NJ almost every year since I was 10. It’s a quieter town that is great for families. We brought Asher two years ago before he could walk or talk. I was 9 months pregnant at the time. So glad that’s over. The boys slept a good portion on the…

Asher helped bake blueberry muffins with lemon glosting (from Trim Healthy Mama) this morning after reading Jamberry (library book about berries). He ate half a muffin too. That’s a huge win. He usually hates the cake texture. We’re studying a unit on food as part of the Busy Toddler’s Playing Preschool curriculum.

Asher has food issues qualifying him for a feeding Specialist soon to work on his willingness for anything beyond french fries and granola cereal. We’ve had success at Chic fil a and Windy…
