When Breastfeeding Ends // a story of grief and pride

August 4, 2017

Disclaimer: I’m not advocating for only breastfeeding babies. Ultimately, it’s a very personal decision. I believe fed is best. Period. I’m just sharing my personal adventure with breastfeeding.

I’ve never shied away from talking about my struggles with postpartum depression and anxiety. In fact, while I was pregnant with my first child, Ari (now 4.5), I had a sneaking suspicion that I would be one of the 600,000 women in the United States each year to develop Postpartum Depression (PPD).

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 […]

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.

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!
