Changes
I've been thinking a lot about this space of mine. About my absence from it. About posting once a week, if that. About the dreams I had for this space.  Creativity. Rambling. Happenings. Life. It hasn't been anything of those things much lately. I'm consume...

On Pride
Gavin officially turned 14 months two days ago. And he's still not walking. Sure he can climb up the stairs himself. He'll push along his walker and cruise down the sofa. He will even humor me by walking holding my hands for a few steps. Then he lifts his f...

I almost cannot believe it, but one month and 4 days ago Gavin turned 1. A whole one year old. The biggest milestone he's made so far.  Doctors would say that we're in the clear for SIDS - which was my #1 fear the first few days of his life. And he can drin...

What Gavin Eats
Hi Everyone! I've been wanting to share this wonderfully simple recipe that Gavin LOVES! Especially for all you "baby lead weaning" mamas. This is one you'll be making so often, you'll have it memorized  - but also because there are only 4 ingredients. Gavi...

Our Sleeping Story
Gavin has never been a great sleeper. If you've been reading here for a while, or if you've ever talked to me in person - you know this. I've been tired for almost a year. I've learned to live on few hour increments of sleep. But even that wasn't the worst ...

Gavi's first snow!
This morning Gavin slept until a blissful 8:30 am. When he awoke, I went in, nursed, and set him down on the changing table to, well, you know, and I pulled open his shade so that he could see up at the sky.  When the shade lifted up I literally gasped. Thi...

Blahsville
As a full-time and working mom, I find it really hard to take advantage of treating myself.  I think it's the mom m.o. We, for some unknown reason, somehow as a whole silently agree that it's okay to but your family first and be some sort of martyr of fashi...

July the 4th
I was off work for Independence day, but Gavin didn't get the memo. We woke up around the usual 7 and fiddled around until about 9 when I had the genius idea to google "nashville fourth of july things to do". And up popped the hot chicken festival. So if yo...

DIY First Dance Word Art
About two months ago, I got really inspired about owning a home. Apartment living for the last 5.5 years had taken it's toll on my creativity, even if I am a designer for a living. I've always felt like not only could I not get super creative about my livin...

Bottle It
The other night we were sitting around the dining table, eating super. Gavin vigorously shoveling handfuls of food into his mouth wide open, but half of it ending up down in his bucket bib.  Then Dillan came along, as he always does and started sniffing aro...

Hooray
In about 10 minutes, Nathan and I will be out - without the baby! I have to admit I feel a little like a pro parent with my baby already down for the night, my hair up in a tip-top-to-knot, and even lipstick! This feels a little different than our typical d...

Space
The past few weeks have been crazy for the Merricks.  We've bought a house, moved, unpacked (well, sort of), renovated, tore it out, re-renovated, battled illness, eaten out waaaaay too much. We've felt crazy, we've felt out of control, we've felt a little ...
