WHEN THE FOG CLEARS // Finding a way through postpartum depression

March 15, 2017

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). I felt… prepared. […]

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 […]

Dear Ari // Happy Birthday

October 16, 2016

Dear Ari, I’m not going to say something cliché about the years flying by; because, honestly, as quickly as they do, the days sure are long, dude. I have to say this though — Going from being a self-proclaimed “never-going-to-have-kids” chick, to finding out I was pregnant with you? That rocked my world. Your daddy […]

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 […]
