A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

The Monday Snapshot – Spikey!


From the day Matthew was born, we’ve spiked his hair down the middle like a mohawk.  One of the nurses in the hospital did it and we fell in love with it – it was so cute and gave his hair lots of volume when it would eventually lay down.  Brushing Matthew’s hair was one of my favorite things to do when he was tiny, and he loved having his hair brushed.  He doesn’t love it like he used to, but he still likes it plenty and lets me spike it after every shower or bath.  The spike doesn’t last long now that his hair is filling in, but when it’s there, I just love it!  I rarely catch it in photos so when I do, it’s special  🙂

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. AH!! So cute! I love when babies have the mohawk hair. He’s getting so big now, won’t be able to call him a “baby” much longer though!

  2. LOL, what a great look! That’s a good pointer about it giving his hair more volume too. 🙂

  3. so cute! I love his lil fauxhawk!

  4. I love it…I do that to kids all the time in the nursery. I even did it to Raegan, but the hubs wasn’t as into it as I am….He’ll get over it…Cute adorable awesome picture!

  5. LOVE LOVE LOVE baby mohawks! Maybe someday HGB will have enough hair to look as cute as his buddy up there! 🙂

  6. Baby mohawks are the best!!! And it definitely suits Matthew! What a cutie.

  7. I love little boys with a mohawk!! That is adorable!

  8. Mohawks rock! What’s he trying to eat there!!??

  9. I always do this to Sofi’s hair, too, but it’s finally starting to get just a tad too long to really stay up like it used to. Sigh. One more thing to remind me of passing time… Matthew is so cute!!
