DIY “My Dad Rocks” Onesie

My Dad Rocks Onesie

I whipped up a quick onesie for Ryder so that he can show his love for "dada" on Father's Day! I used a existing image found in the Cricut Design Space library and then added the "my" text. Like I said, super simple to do and "dada" loved it when he saw him wearing it for the mini photo shoot!  The best part is that I can add a few of the photos from our mini photo shoot into Jon's Father's day journal for this year! Supplies: Cricut Explore Cricut Design Space Cricut Iron-On … [Read more...]

Cruising With A 1 Year Old

Cruising with a 1 year old - everything you need to know before hitting the high-seas with your tot!

Earlier this year, I shared our experience of cruising with a 6 month old. Last month, we took a 4-day cruise to celebrate Ryder turning 1 (and us keeping a tiny human being alive). Today I'm excited to share cruising with a 1 year old. Holy smokes, there is a huge difference between the two age ranges. Especially if your 6 month old is not mobile (like ours was at the time). The other week I shared a free printable check list that you can download that will help you pack for a cruise when … [Read more...]

Last week Jon, myself, and the baby escaped life for 4 days and went on a cruise to Mexico. If you follow Sew Woodsy you'll remember that we took Ryder on his first cruise when he turned 6 month's old. We decided we would give it a try again now that he is a year old. Boy, what a difference 7 months makes. Since posting about cruising with a 6 month old I've had a lot of people ask if I have a free printable Cruise Packing List for Babies & Toddlers. I finally created a printable for … [Read more...]

Whale 1st Birthday Party

Awesome ideas -->> Whale 1st Birthday Party Ideas

I can't believe it's been a month already since Ryder's 1st Birthday. Seriously, where does time go? In our typical fashion, we threw a rather large party to celebrate keeping another little human being alive for a year. The longest yet shortest year of my life! Now that I've survived the first year I can't imagine my life with out Ryder. I love the current age he's at. I love watching him learn and grow daily. He is so perfect and just completes us. Enough of my emotional babbling... I'm so … [Read more...]

12 Months of Ryder

12 months of ryder

Ryder turned one almost 1 month ago and I've yet to share my coveted month-to-month photos. I opted to not do the paper stickers on a onesie and just edited the photo and placed text on the photo using the Rhonna Designs app on my phone. This made taking a photo each month a whole lot easier. I also didn't really stick with the same background each time. I wanted his photos to represent his personality and what he was starting to do. So here we are in all his glory... my little itty bitty baby … [Read more...]

DIY First Birthday Onesie

DIY first birthday onesie

I knew even before Ryder was born that I would be making him a onesie for his birthday. I mean let's get real I've made him quite a few cute custom onesies. Why wouldn't I make him one? And then fast forward 6 months after he was born, and my friend Darci opened up a cute Etsy shop, The Kitchen and the Cave, and was making the cutest first birthday onesies and shirts. I loved her designs, so I opted to not make his and have her make him one. And then Jon found out and guilted me like no one has … [Read more...]

DIY Easter Bunny Onesie with Name

DIY Easter Bunny Onesie with Name 4

Two weeks ago, in the midst of first birthday craziness I decided I needed to make Ryder an Easter onesie. Not want... but a need. This was the first time I had cut fabric using my new Cricut Explore. I have cut fabric for years now on past Cricut machines, but I was always having to battle with figuring out the perfect number settings. Well, not any more my friends. If you cut fabric often on your Cricut and still haven't upgraded your machine this is the time. The Cricut Explore cuts fabric … [Read more...]

10 Magic Kingdom Tips with Babies and Toddlers

Top 10 Magic Kingdom Tips with Babies and Toddlers

Last weekend, we had a "staycation" and spent the weekend at Walt Disney World. I was attending a food blog conference for my food blog; Katie's Cucina and I was able to bring the family along. We spent 2 nights at The Grand Floridian Hotel and 3 days at the parks. Although we live in Orlando, we have yet to take Ryder to the Magic Kingdom. He's been to Epcot (Food & Wine Fest) and to Hollywood studios to see the Osborne Family Christmas Lights. Jon and I were both very excited to bring him … [Read more...]

15 Newborn Essentials

15 Newborn Essentials

Being a new parent is tough enough. It can be overwhelming to sift through all the baby products you really need. I'm sharing our top 15 Newborn Essentials! I started writing this post last year when Ryder was only a month old. Now that he is almost a year old I feel like I'm so much more knowledgeable than when I was a new mom to a 1-month old. You will receive so many gifts and most you will use and some you won't use. I wanted to share what we felt was absolutely essential for … [Read more...]
