Coloring Is A Serious Thing

Mabel Crayola Coloring

There’s one thing that Mabel doesn’t joke around with….coloring. She’s all business and no smiles. But she did manage to fit some time into her serious artist’s schedule to bite a few tops off of her crayons.  Ugh…I wonder when my child will stop chewing on random things?   Her artwork currently consists of little random […]

A New Item For The Shop

I’ve been a slacker when it comes to posts this week.  I’ve been busy with odds and ends but I’ve also been experimenting on my sewing machine.  I’ve been long overdue for adding new items to the shop…so I decided to have some fun! What have I been working on?  Camera strap covers! They aren’t […]

Say Cheese!

A super quick post… I took these last Friday…and they made my day! I had gone outside to take some photos for a review I’m going to be posting this upcoming week and turned around to see that Mabel had made her way to the glass door.  She saw me and started giving me her […]

Our Afternoon Stroll

It’s been a while since we’ve gone on a walk around the neighborhood.  It’s either too hot or too cold…and today the weather was perfect.  I brought my camera along since it’s always a good time to take photos.    Not to mention that lately I’ve been feeling like Mabel is growing up way too […]

Queen of Her High Chair

Mabel is the queen of her high chair. She rules with an iron fist…well a clumsy fist that drops food all over the floor…something that hasn’t gone unnoticed by Bruce. I guess she already has a royal subject, at least until she runs out of food.   

Mabel’s First Fourth of July

Mabel's First 4th of July

This past Wednesday we celebrated the 4th of July and it was Mabel’s first!  We had planned a quiet day of family time and fun.  We would have loved the chance to celebrate with more of our family, but as most of you know, we are a military family and do not have a lot […]

I’m Doing It – Photo a Day: JULY


I’m finally doing it.  A photo a day for a month! I’ve been seeing a lot of blogs doing this recently and was just introduced this morning to this particular challenge after seeing that Lindsey over at Mom & Wife is going to participate too.  Seems like fun and something easy enough that this momma […]

Guest Post – Haley from Just the Little Things


I can’t tell you all how excited I am to introduce Modern Mommyhood’s first guest post ever!  Over the past few weeks I’ve gotten to know Haley from Just the Little Things after falling in love with her photography skills and her adorable little daughter, Clara.  Her daughter recently turned 1, and I asked her […]

Time Flies When You’re Four Months Old

Baby Growth Photos Month by Month

I honestly can’t believe that little Mabel turned 4 months old a few days ago (June 14th).  Where has time been going?  It seems just like yesterday that she had her pudgy newborn face with smooshed features.  And look at her now.  She’s turning into a little lady.  : )  The photo above makes me […]
