About Us

My photo
Shawn, originally New Yorker, transported to Tennessee for a few years, chased the love of his life in Iowa, only to move her back to Tennessee. Rachael, small town Iowa girl that traveled the globe to find her love in Tennessee. Little did we know how much our lives would change when Little Miss Magdalyn Joy entered the world. Join our journey through the unknown of Maggie's medical issues, known truths of God, and the nuts and bolts of life.


B-day gift ideas

We in no way expect gifts for Maggie's birthday.  With that being said, I know many people have asked and will still want to get her something, but she is so difficult to buy for.

I've been trying to brainstorm some good ideas that could be useful.
We've finally moved up in diapers and are needing to be stocked up on a few things.  I will try to provide as many details as possible for you to plug into Amazon.  Any print is fine (and it's kind of fun to see all the fun prints)
One Size Elite FuzziBunz cloth diaper
Diaper covers.....(velcro or snap) 
       Bummis Diaper Cover Medium (15-30 lbs) (super brite or super whisper wrap)
       Thirsties Diaper Cover Size 2
OsoCozy Unbleached Prefolds, size 2

Some sort of camelback hydration pack (i think Costco has them too), with a bite valve (i'd like to try something like this for her this summer to see if I can get her to use it)
Sensory Exploration toys...particularly if they are really sensitive to touch/easily activated....can be tricky without her having hardly any hand control
Leap Frog Activity pads...i saw these at Target the other day and I think she would do great with them!  Other friends have said they are easy for our specials to access.

As far as clothes, she just switched into 24 months and about size 3-4 shoe, but really, I think we are set on clothes with all the great hand-me-downs.
Could maybe have another swimsuit, or some fun summer shoes, hairbows.  But really probably doesn't need much in this department either.
Again...We are so blessed and she doesn't just need stuff because you feel you need to get a gift.  Just spending time with us, loving on her is the best gift!!!!
