Chipotle Bacon 7-Layer Dip

This Chipotle Bacon 7-Layer Dip is a “twist” on a classic favorite dish of mine. In my opinion, adding bacon, avocados, and some spice can easily transform a dish into something amazing! If you’re a bacon lover than you know that adding bacon to your favorite dish can make that dish absolutely delicious.

The Chipotle Bacon 7-Layer Dip requires no cooking or baking and is a perfect dish to serve at party or any social gathering, or a family movie night on the couch.

Celebrating Milestones The Second Time

Celebrating Milestones the Second Time

As a mother of two children I've learned that baby's firsts even the second time around are just as special. Achieving a new milestone both big and small should always be celebrated. With each child, a new milestone can be a different experience unlike the others. Each child is unique, each will have their own personality and each one is special. Often each child will reach a milestone at different times in their lives. Even to a veteran mommy, those unexpected milestones at unexpected times are a fun surprise.

Baby's first tooth or teeth is an exciting time .... and it can also be a time of many tears for both
baby and parents. The teething process with both my children were very different. Emma Lee
had both her lower central incisor teeth before she was three months old. It was as if they had sprung up overnight. As a new mommy, this was one of our very first milestones in a long line of more special occasions. With the teething came lots of biting, chewing, fussing and sadly some pain. I kept teething toys nearby along with Baby Orajel™ Naturals to provide pain relief for my baby girl.
