Weekly Mantra //

February 27, 2017

Guys. Last week was a whirlwind! I had two events, continued my 14-day-straight working streak, and dealt with a plethora of toddler/baby related issues. It can only be summed up with the cliché of rollercoaster. Roller.COASTER. ya’ll. And because I was so busy with the ups and downs and loop-dee-loops, I had exactly zero time […]

Soothing A Colicky Baby //

February 12, 2017

In my (many) efforts to be a super-‘real mom,’ I’ve shared our struggles with colic quite a bit. Honestly, before becoming a mom — heck, even after becoming a mom — I had read and heard so little about the battle that is colic. It was discouraging, to say the least. We found ourselves knee-deep […]

Remy Bea’s Winter ONEderland //

January 25, 2017

Monday my last baby had her first birthday. I know! I still can’t believe it! Well, over the weekend we celebrated little Miss Bea turning the big O-N-E with a small party. (Note: It was really hard for me to throw a small party. We just don’t know how to do “small” parties in my family! […]

Little Mover, Big Changes // Adjusting To Life With A Spirited Child

January 1, 2017

I’ll be the first to admit it — Our first born, Ari, did little to prepare us for the wild side of parenting. See, he has always been very cautious and mild-mannered. Certainly, our second child would be just as chill, right? Wrong. Oh, so, wrong! Miss Bea is a handful — has been since […]

Remy Bea // 8 Months

September 30, 2016

I HAVE SO MUCH TO TELL YOU! Seriously. I just took a peek back at my 7 month post and the changes from then to now are astonishing. Let’s recap, shall we? She’s sitting up. I mean, she kinda was before. But now she’s 100% unassisted, no-wobble, sitting up. Speaking of no-wobble, she’s doing much […]

Meeting Our Milestones With Little Tikes //

September 4, 2016

Getting excited over seemingly ‘small’ milestones was something I laughed at before having kids. But now? Now I rejoice in watching my kids grow and learn new things. Every parent does! And it’s totally NOT silly! Newborns grow and learn at such a rapid pace, it seems as if they’re developing and hitting major milestones […]

Guys – SO much has changed in a month. And I cannot believe she’s already been around for over half of a year! Here’s a bit of a Seven Month Update: She still isn’t sleeping well. But most nights I can get her to sleep and have about 3 hours before her first feeding of the […]

Call Me Auntie! //

August 25, 2016

Last Thursday I hurried the kiddos into the car and packed up a couple of bags to make our way to Columbus. My sister gave me the good word that she was, indeed, in labor! She was a bit panicky because her water was leaking and the midwives were going to induce her — something […]

Soothing a Colicky Baby

August 19, 2016

All moms of newborns understand that their babies are going to cry. They cry when they’re hungry, tired, and have a dirty diaper, the waterworks are on. We understand that it’s really the only way they have to express how they feel. But no one can prepare you for those other moments — the moments […]
