Mmmmm that's a perfect morning in my books :) Looks delicious. Thanks for coming by outnumbered - I have been nannyless for a week but had to work this week - now is my time to stay at home. Working full-time without a nanny has definitely been a challenge...I've been so busy I haven't posted at all this week! Hopefully tomorrow I will find some time :)

This is great! Congrats on having another post on Momversation. Did you submit your post to them or did they come & seek you out? YAY! I never did the pop in the bottle, but apple juice for sure. My sis only gives her child water & milk. That is serious dedication on her part. (Needless to say, it's her first!!)

Love the buffet, it's gorgeous! I also agree with chair being kick ass. : ) My late Grandmother (whose birthday would have been today) gave me quite a few of her old antique furniture pieces. I love what she left for me...and while it was comforting for her while she was alive to know her furniture was being put to good use & was being cared for, it's now a great comfort for me to have her things in my home. Even now when I open her buffet or china cabinet doors, the smell of the wood brings me right back to her old apartment. I love love love it. Great post.
Sooooo sweet! You are a super woman, birthing babies in a birthing centre! WOWZA. My baby's name is Sam too :) Love it. So what made you stop at 5? We have 3 and I'm wanting one more but my hubby isn't sure. I'm practically a geriatric OB patient...so I figure we better make a decision soon. Happy Birthday to your Sam!!
