Baby Number 3 // The First Trimester

December 18, 2017

It’s here! It’s here! The end of my first trimester has come and gone! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous every second of every day for the past 14 weeks. Despite never having had any serious complications with any of my pregnancies, there was something about finding out I was pregnant in […]

a Thanksgiving SURPRISE!

November 23, 2017

I’ve been keeping a HUGE secret. Like, bigger than big. And it explains everything, friends. I promise. And what better day to share it than Thanksgiving, right?! That’s right — Remy Bea will be a middle child as of June 2018! I know, I know. After Remy Bea was born in January 2016, I swore […]

Digging Deep in Motherhood // Opening Up About My Infant Feeding Journey

October 8, 2017

    From the moment Remy Bea was born, everything changed. Sure, that’s to be expected when having a second child; but I mean it in the way that my world was turned upside down — this child was unlike anything I could have ever imagined. But the one thing she was always good at […]

Our Summer in Pictures

Guys – something amazing happened this Summer — we had fun — and I stepped a bit away from this here blog.

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.

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 […]

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 […]
