Remembering Milestones with Milestone World

Hey guys! It's been a while since we last chatted. Let me explain my absence a bit. If you remember from this post I gave extra income ideas as I was playing with ways to make money since our family was downsizing to one income. Obviously when Sophia was born that happened. 

At the beginning of this year, I started babysitting at home and it has been a challenge as I'm use to Sophia's independence and when I finally have a breather I just want to curl up on the couch with a good book which is what I have been doing (many book reviews to come). However this has gotten me behind on my monthly updates of Sophia.

My little girl is 11 months old and I need to type up her 10 month post for last month and her 11 month post for this month and take her 11 month photo update.

When I was introduced to the Milestone World, I knew it was something I could benefit off of as we mommies tend to get busy. We obviously want to remember milestones but it can be hard to make time to jot it down in the baby journal or draft a blog post.

These Milestone cards have all the milestones  prewritten in each card for the toddler years (I can't believe my baby is going to be a toddler). At the bottom of each card there is a spot to write the date and bonus points if you get your kid in a picture holding the card but if not you still have the date and card to remember that sweet Milestone.



What I also like is the box the Milestone cards come in is durable and reusable. Perfect place to continue to store the cards instead of having to find a binder or another box. They also make Milestone cards for babies! While I would love to continue to do monthly updates for all my children, I think it'll be more realistic to get a pack of those whenever we have more children.

How do you remember your children's Milestone? Do you use Milestone cards?

Reading List | Spring 2017

I have been wanting to put together a reading list for the year but I still am not certain of all the books I want to read so I decided to break this up by season: spring, summer and fall.

You will notice I didn't include winter because if we are being honest, Houston doesn't know what winter is at least not in the last few years, haha.

Anyways, the books on this list should get me from now until May and if I stick with my intention of reading 12 books in a year than that leaves me with reading 5 books in this season. I have already started one which is One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp and I am blown away by this book. Kinda kicking myself for never buying it sooner as I have wanted it for years now. I will go into more detail about this book when I do a book review as I am planning on doing when I finish each book (I still owe y'all a book review for the Baby Led Weaning book as well).

The others on my list are:

These are in no particular order as I will read what I feel inclined to next and who knows I may even push one or two into the next season if another book grabs my attention.

Do you love reading or is reading something you have to push yourself to do? What books are on your list?
