Two Years

Fruit Baby Poem
My amazing sister wrote these beautiful words for my son when he was still growing inside me…before we knew he was a boy, before he changed our lives forever. Each week, I would update her on his progress…”This week, he is the size of a berry,” I would say…”This week, the size of a plum…”

My baby boy turns two years old this weekend, and my head and heart simply cannot believe it.

Happy Birthday, my beautiful boy. Happy Birthday.

Triple Nerd Score

Scrabble Decor
I love Scrabble…always have, always will. At present, we have no less than four different versions of the game in our home, including the iPad app and the fancy schmancy Onyx Edition. Did I mention that I love Scrabble? It turns out, I am not alone in my love, as evidenced by all of the amazingly creative Scrabble reincarnations that are out there. I am especially smitten with some of the ideas for the home; sweet, customizable, and with a generous helping of nerd. Just my style.

Organic Buying Guide
As a family, we try our best to buy (and consume) as much organic as possible…especially now that we have little ones to think about. Admittedly, this isn’t always as practical (financially and otherwise) as one might hope….I often find myself wondering if my trips to those wondrously intoxicating (and expensive) organic grocers will be in lieu of say, our little monkeys’ college educations. I kid. Kind of.

That’s why I was very happy to come across the above. The EWG recently published its most up-to-date best and worst lists in terms of pesticide laden fruits and vegetables, and estimates that we can reduce our exposure by 80 percent simply by knowing which foods typically have the highest pesticide residue, and therefore should be bought organic. As some of the worst offenders also tend to see the most action in our home, I am happy to know that our organic efforts really are worth it…and to have a good guideline for prioritizing while wandering the produce department.
