I'm Kristin.  I am a wife, aspiring designer, Christian and for now a SAHM.  My husband and I are parents to three kids- Dylan Archer, Kyler Jude and Noelle Rose. I created this space to document my family's adventures and lessons I've learned along the way.  The Mom Jungle is a modern interpretation of both the family newsletter and scrapbook.

We now have a FOUR year-old!  Normally, I love party planning and designing an event with a cohesive theme and menu.. this year is a bit of an anomaly.  In addition to the struggles of pregnancy, my parents are selling their house, we were sick, and my father-in-law has a two week work-stint in Mexico.  Therefore, we are doing some small mini gatherings [we've had one low-key celebration with my parents] and will have a little shin-dig with my in-laws and another outing with Dylan's best friend.  I figure, next year we will be in full-fledged friend birthday party-mode, so we'll enjoy this chill birthday with our happy, l̶i̶t̶t̶l̶e̶ dude.  Justin and I gave him Lego Junior, a train set, shoes and a Peppa Pig giant colouring book.  He's thrilled with his presents and we are thrilled with the joy he has brought us!  Thank you for making me a mama #mrdylanarcher!

  • Favourite current toy... Dylan's new dump truck

  • Favourite all-time toy... his Lightening McQueen Car & Curious George [thank you to both sets of grandparents]!

  • Favourite past-time: bubbles, playdates, painting, and biking outside when the weather his nice

  • Current Obsession: water towers

  • Current Phrases: constantly telling me he loves me and that I am his best friend #thesweetest

  • He loves to talk about the baby, wonders about its clothing-situation, wants a "boy baby" and is relieved that another baby doesn't mean we are giving Kyler away [he was very concerned]!

We LOVE you Dylan! Happy Birthday!
