It’s The Great Pumpkin, Joey Marie!

8 October 2016 / 20 Comments

Throw the confetti and bring me some cake cuz the blog is finally live! YESSSSS. A very special thanks goes out to Madeleine over at The Daily Mark for setting this up for me. You are amazing Madeleine and congratulations on your babyyyy!

I’ve never really been the blogger-type but as I’ve been receiving so much mail from our fans, it’s been motivating me to get this going so I can connect with everyone. The blog will act as a journal with updates of what our family is up to as well as a place I can post about things I love and are inspired by. It’s been difficult keeping up with all of the fan mail everyday and replying back so I’ll be also using this blog to cover questions and topics that come up frequently.

So with that, here’s the first post! Like almost all mothers in America, I wanted to take Joey to a pumpkin patch this fall. Seriously though, what is it with mothers and pumpkin patches? UH EVERYTHING. After watching Joey get so excited about touching hay and feeling the different pumpkins around, I want to do this everyday! Man, I love October. I posted about the Miamily hipster carrier on Instagram the other day and I have to say, I love it. There was some concern about it being ergonomically safe and it totally is safe! It comes with a hip seat that supports the hips so that the legs aren’t just dangling. My favorite part about it is taking the top part off so that Joey can literally just sit on it like a chair and just explore her surroundings. We’ll most likely take it with us while trick-or-treating this year!

Joey’s Halloween costume is pretty much set but Allen and I still have to figure out ours! Stay tuned for pictures!

    Your pictures of Joey (and hysterical puns) bring me – as a first-time mom – so much joy. Keep spreading your sunshine. The world needs more of it.

    PS. My daughter is actually going to be a tuna roll for Halloween. Inspired by Joey’s The Wishing Elephant onesie, I ordered one. 😀

    • lauraiz says:

      Hi Christine! Oh my goodness. Is there any way I can see this precious costume on your daughter?? Aren’t their costumes the BEST?? So awesome! Thank you for writing to us. 🙂

        Sorry for the double post below! I was experiencing issues with the comment submission that day – my comment didn’t appear at all on my end that day.

        Yes, would love to share the pics of our tuna roll with you! :). I’ll send them via DM on FB, if that’s possible.

        PS. Also, I had not heard of “Stranger Things” until I saw Joey’s Eleven costume (yes, I live under a rock). I Googled it, read the reviews and have no idea how I missed this show (as it’s exactly the type of show we love). Debating over whether to get Netflix for this & others…..

    • lauraiz says:

      Thank you Andrea! Where are you from? The word “mum” made me wonder haha. Australia?? Thank you so much for your sweet words. Yes I’m learning so much about parenting and being a stay-at-home-WORKING-mom. It’s tough but I’m getting better at it day by day…or at least I hope I am haha! Love that you’re a preschool teacher. You must have such a blast working with the cutest kids all day! Thank you for writing! xo – Laura & Joey
