Gift-Giving Made Easy

 

While having coffee with a girlfriend last week, I saw a beautiful, unique 'save the date' wedding announcement on her kitchen counter.  It was extremely creative and tasteful! Geez - what do you get someone with such exquisite taste?  I'm sure the couple has a gift registry somewhere fabulous ... so, when you have the time to explore the vast selection of uniquely Louisville gift items, and come on, save the dates are sent out months in advance, I think one should do so.  Hometown couple or not, a gift from Louisville Stoneware, Flame Run, Glassworks or Dover House Antiques is always a good choice.

Milkmakers Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed.

Emily Kane came up with a solution to a dilemma most of us moms have dealt with at some point during our breastfeeding times—how to boost breastmilk production! Her solution is in the form of  delicious “lactation cookies” called Milkmakers.  A recipe that combines oats, brewer’s yeast, and flax seed is just what a nursing momma needs!
We’re giving away a 1-month supply of lactation cookies, and here are 3 ways you can enter to win (just leave a separate comment here for each entry):

1. follow Today’s Family Every Day (one entry)
2. follow Today’s Family on Twitter (one entry)
3. like Todays Family on facebook (one entry)

This giveaway runs through midnight on 3/6/12.

See Official Rules for details.

Update: Our winner is Spears (comment #2).  Congratulations!  We've sent you an email.

Support for Local Moms


Being a mom is hard work. So, it is always good to find other moms with whom you can share war stories and show battle scars. Here are just some of the many local groups that offer support for moms:
 
The Birth Care Network offers a Moms Group that meets the third Tuesday of each month at Babyology at 3934 Dutchman’s Lane from 10:00am-12:00pm. Moms and their young children are welcome.
Mama’s Hip at 1559 Bardstown Road hosts a New Moms Group every Monday and Wednesday from 12:00-2:00, as well as an all-age playgroup on Thursdays at 12:00pm and Fridays at 11:00am.
There are three local MOMS Club chapters. The Louisville East chapter meets the second Monday of every month (10:00am) at Ascension Lutheran Church. The Oldham County MOMS Club also meets the second Monday of every month (9:45am) at St. James in PeeWee Valley. The Southeast MOMS Club meets the first Monday of every month at Hunsinger Lane Baptist Church. All chapters offer playgroups, MOMS Nite Out events, and community service opportunities.
Members of the Mother’s Center of Louisville meet at Hurstbourne Baptist Church once a week for multi-age playgroups. There are also two or three other weekly activities planned for moms and children.

A {Grand} Baby on the Way


To some, this picture might resemble a newly-discovered galaxy, or maybe that solar storm we’ve been hearing about lately. To our families, however, it really IS a picture of a little bit of heaven. We are counting down the days to the birth of our third grandchild — my son, Ryan, and daughter-in-law, Kiara’s first child. This is the baby’s ultrasound at 31 weeks. Isn’t she beautiful?

Watching my youngest son becoming a parent, I am reminded of his baby- and toddlerhood. The constant mischievous twinkle in his eyes kept us on our toes. He was always on some over-the-top adventure, which often led to the extreme limits of our patience. As a new Daddy-to-be, Ryan still possesses his youthful playfulness, wild imagination, and energy. Ryan is also a very loving son, and we are looking forward to his qualities of sincerity, respect of others, persistence, and conscientiousness being nurtured in his little girl as she grows. If she also inherits that mischievous twinkle in her eye, too, watch out!

Ryan has chosen his soul mate in Kiara, who is bubbly and vivacious, and also very full of energy. We are extremely happy they have found each other and that they are expecting their first child. They have the baby’s room decorated and ready, and the excitement grows as they have begun their parent-to-be classes this month. Kiara is now on her maternity leave from work.

Stay tuned as we count down the days for their beautiful baby to arrive!
