Orchardbaby Boutique Update

Basics Collection from
Thanks for stopping by! I thought I would do an update on how our shop Orchardbaby Boutique is doing. We've been having so much fun with creating and making items for all the little ones! I don't think Kenzie or myself ever imagined this is where we would be at this point in our life. Married to brothers, raising kids as stay at home mamas, and sewing mini creations for your little ones. Of course our days are filled with so much more, but when we find the time away from wiping noses, sweeping up breakfast off the floor, and snuggling with our precious babes, we turn into little sewers, and its pretty awesome!
We just launched a new collection in the shop called the "Basics Collection". Bringing you the basics for your trendy babe! Hoodies and pants are handcrafted with a super soft french terry knit. The cuffs are made with a soft and stretchy black and white striped cotton knit. All seams are serged for a professional finish and added durability. This line of "basics" will keep your little one super stylish, while allowing ease and comfort, that you and your babe will BOTH love! Here are some pictures from the collection, which you can purchase through our shop at

And Then There Were Three!

Sorry we have been MIA for the last few months. Kenzie and I have both been staying busy with our new business and online shop Orchardbaby Boutique. This adventure has been both exciting and time consuming, but we are having so much fun with it, and we would love for you to check it out! 
Anyway, I am here to share some very exciting news! I am so thrilled to tell you all that Daniel and I are expecting our third baby. For those of you new to our blog, we currently have a daughter who is almost three and a son who is one and half. I want to make sure I write down and keep track of this pregnancy, and feel like this is the best way to do that. I hope you guys enjoy these little updates from time to time, and hopefully we can make some time to do some other posts, as well.
How far along: 14 Weeks + 2 Days
Total weight gain/loss: At my last appointment I was down 2lbs, however I'm sure that won't be the case at my next appointment. 
Maternity clothes: Maternity jeans, but mostly still regular tops, but getting close to busting out the maternity ones!
Sleep: It has been fine so far! Lack of sleep so far, only has to do with Simon, my youngest son. Hah.
Best moment this week: The kids had a sleepover at Grandma's house! Definitely a much needed and appreciated break.
Movement: I THINK I felt little baby flutters this week!
Food cravings: Subway! Specifically, their sweet onion chicken teriyaki sandwhich.
Gender: We will find out in early November!
Belly button- in or out?: In
What I miss: I never got any morning sickness, so that was amazing. I was pretty tired during the end of the first trimester, and I have been getting a bit more energy now that I am into my second trimesters, so that has been nice.

I hope you all have an awesome week! Stayed tuned for more updates along the way, and thanks for joining us for this new season of our life!

Camping Theme Party Ideas by Orchard Girls Blog
My little mister Simon turned one on May 21st! He is such an amazing little babe, he needs to stop growing so fast though! Bah. I decided to do a camping theme for his party, and I love how it turned out. Here are some pictures from the party, enjoy and be inspired. This party was a lot of work, but I actually had a lot of fun getting everything ready and putting it all together.

Here is the three layer cake I came up with. I made the little tent out of fabric and little wooden sticks using hot glue. I bought the little lamp at Hobby Lobby in the little dollhouse section. It is my favorite piece! Also on the cake are kit kat campfire logs with melted red and yellow candies for the flames. The campfire sitting logs are tootsie rolls, and sitting on those are two toothpicks with mini marshmallows.

We also had a few water activities and small pool set up for the kids, as well as a little bounce house that was a huge hit! We had a lot of fun with family and friends. We are so thankful to everyone who showed up and was a part of the party! We had a blast eating food, playing yard games, and playing in the kiddie pool!

Simon's 11 Month Update

A little late to posting this, and I completely missed his 10 month update. Simon has grown leaps and bounds over the last few weeks! The last update I did was when Simon was 9 months old. Since then  a lot has changed. So let's jump right in...
Simon weighs just under 21 pounds, I don't remember how tall he is. His next doctor appointment is his 1 year check up! AHH! I can't believe that.
Sleeping has been pretty good overall. He usually takes two naps a day, sometimes just one. It all depends on what errands we run that day. A morning nap between 10-11, for about an hour. Then an afternoon nap around 3/4 for about an hour. Sometimes he is just not about that nap time life and will skip his afternoon nap. We all suffer! haha. Simon goes to bed at 8:30 and will wake up just once in the night to nurse, then goes back to bed. It will either be around 3 or sometimes he doesn't wake up til about 5 then goes back to sleep til about 730/8am and wakes up for the day.
We've definitely got an eater on our hands. His breastfeeding schedule has definitely slowed down. He usually nurses about 6 times in a 24 period. Usually about 8am, 11am, 3pm, 6 (sometimes skips this one), and 830 for bed. He also eats breakfast, lunch, and dinner with us when we eat, and a snack here and there.
Well, we have a walker! So there is that. He started taking a few steps around 10.5 months and is walking all the time now, and prefers it to crawling. That is the biggest milestone in the last two months for sure. He doesn't really say any words yet, besides mama, dada, and I think he tries to say night night. But that's about it. He also gives high fives and kisses, which is adorable!
He has a lot of new teeth! He now has 4 on top and two on bottom, which is so crazy to me! Adeline was just getting her first tooth at this age.
His first haircut also happened! It was bittersweet, but his hair looks much better now and he did a great job.
He also had his first major injury! :( Simon dove off the couch and fractured his wrist! Poor baby, I felt so bad for him. He had to wear a splint for two weeks, but that is now off and he is back to using that wrist.
These two are quite the pair. I love that they are already so close! They love hanging out with each other and just being together. Simon a lot of the time thinks she is playing with him, when in reality she is just trying to get away from him! Hah. They've started to actually play together, today they were throwing and rolling the ball back and forth! I hope they stay the bestest of friends. Don't worry, I know hard times are ahead, but I can dream, right? :)
 We love this little guy and can't believe he is already almost one! It just seems like yesterday that he was born, time is sure flying by!
Have a great evening! :)
