An Open Letter to All Expecting Mothers

At a baby shower I attended today, there was a little card on my plate that read, in squiggly, pink script, “Your Advice to the Mother-To-Be”.

You’d think that as a new mom and blogger on everything pregnancy and motherhood-related, I’d have mounds of advice to give… right? But I…

Lay me back to sleep

I am a back sleeper. I try not to be, because I am more likely to snore when I sleep on my back (sorry, honey!). So, I try to sleep on my side, but I know that at some point during the night, I will roll over to my back.…

Six Fortnights

7,776,000 seconds.

129, 600 minutes.

90 days.

12 weeks.

3 months.

Little Bear is 3 months old. It’s funny how difficult it is to remember a time without her.

Though she hasn’t been with us for very long so far it feels like a lifetime, in a good way. I mean, clearly, if I think about it I can remember before her and…

Why I Look Forward to Baby Number Two

6 Things I Miss (3).jpg

Once you’ve had your first child, the second baby conversation starts to happen… often.

You think about timing, age difference, and things like “is our home big enough?” or “can we really handle two kids?”

But let’s be honest: now that the hard part is over, you just wonder how in the world you can go through the first six months all over again (lack of sleep and raw nipples especially), but, at the same time, you don’t think it’s humanly…

Letter to My Clingy, Cranky, Teething Child

Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 9.28.24 PM

knew I shouldn’t have gotten used to the great night sleep, perfect, clockwork naps, and how amazing you were doing with independent play the past few months… I knew that.

But I did… I sort of took it all for granted. That’s how well you were doing!

Until, of course, that nasty molar popped in a few months early.

This week has been rough on Mommy, you know. Between your ravenous appetite (most days you almost eat…

In need of a lactation boost?

As a breastfeeding mom, I understand the frustration when it comes to your milk supply. I mean c'mon! Breastmilk is liquid gold in our eyes. Like many moms, I would spend so much time online looking up how to increase my milk production. We all remember the first time our milk comes in. We are full, engorged, and our bed seems to be like a 'milk puddle'. I came across many products online but one that stuck out to me that I was able to order was Mrs. Patel's. Mrs. Patel's is a growing company… Continue

Why I Wasn’t Ready To Be a Mom

We were out in New York City with friends when we decided we were ready.A packed bar downtown, the kind of place you forget. We’d both had way too many nights like this one: too many watered down vodka sodas, nights spent shoving through the crowd, competing for the bartender’s attention.

This wasn’t the scene for us anymore, it was easy to see.

I don’t remember…

Teething Essentials

13450932_10100293262528465_4588418572177776565_n

My little man is four months old already. How the heck is that possible? I swear last month was February. We can't possibly be nearing the end of June right now, can we?! I've learned a lot the last four months about my little guy. He is quite a bit fussier than his big sister. He does NOT like his carseat. He's not crazy about the swing. He is chubby and pudgy in all the right places. He loves to be held...all the time. I call him my little hot tamale because he puts off…

He's Here! He's Here!

Sorry for my absence, but I've been buried in tiny diapers, toddler tantrums, and baby snuggles for the last week. Our little guy arrived last Tuesday morning at 9:31am and life has been whizzing by ever since!

0216161513a-1

This is Bowen James and he is 7lbs 1oz, and 20 1/2 inches long. I don't want to say he is the perfect baby, because I know it will bite me in the butt later, but he kind of is. He's the sleepiest, hungriest, cuddliest little babe and he is the perfect addition…

Diaper Bag Essentials



Baby day is getting closer and closer. We are only a couple of weeks away and he pretty much could make his entrance into the world anytime now. My hospital bag is packed, baby's bag is packed, and now I'm turning my attention to my diaper bag. I'm so used to packing for a two-year old, I have to retrain my brain for packing for a newborn....they need so much stuff! I'm…

Baby Stuff We Loved So Much We're Using It Again

Since I'm about to have this baby, and I'm not really able to do many projects, I thought I'd do a little post of my favorite baby things that we really, really used the first time around and that we plan to use again with baby number two. There is so much baby stuff out there these days, and we found some of it unnecessary. I'm focusing this list on mainly newborn baby needs. It's funny to see all the lists of what you need for baby on different sites, because every baby is so…

Wrap that baby up in a box

The biggest shock after having our son is that after four days the hospital was letting us take him home.



Despite the baby prep classes and recovery time from my C-section and the video the nurses insisted that we watched, it seemed really soon. As in: We don't know what we are doing yet - are you sure you…

Newborn Milestones - Growth

Originally posted at Just Playing House. 

Newborn milestones are exciting! Seeing the new baby grow, learn new things, and experience the world. However, for this mama, they are also sad. Sienna is our 3rd baby. She will also be our last. So with every new milestone, I am reminded that it is also the last.

Today I began the sad process of cleaning out our newborn clothes. Sienna is now 4-months old. Only recently did she…

Why I Hate My Husband At 3 AM.

Originally posted at Just Playing House.

It's 3 AM (or any other time in the middle of the night). The baby starts crying. She is awake for a bottle. I lay there for just a second to let my body get used to the idea that I'm about to wake up and climb out of a comfy bed. Ugh!

The baby is still in our room so I don't have to go far. She cries a little bit as I change her diaper and get her bottle ready. I usually sit on our bed…

Baby's First Bath

Okay so you've carried a growing human in your belly for 9 months and gave birth to the most beautiful purple baby you've ever laid your eyes on. The fear of labor is gone, the fear of ripping your vag, among other things, is gone too.…

Couponing To Save Money On Diapers

So many diapers, wipes, and diaper cream in our future. It is a bit daunting when you look at how many diapers babies need between birth and potty training... which happens around month 4 right :)



If you consider that babies use an average of 10 diapers a day for the first 5 months and 6 diapers a day for months 6-12, in the first year of his life Oliver will use around 2,912 diapers... I just peed a little bit.



I decided to start early on…

Setting A Bedtime Routine With A Newborn

It took me about 4 weeks to settle into a night time routine with Oliver. However, since we started, it has been FANTASTIC! I wish that we had started our bedtime routine much earlier. I don't think it is ever too early to start. Before I share what we do at night, a quick disclaimer: I DO NOT stick to this every night... We are human! There are nights that just don't go as planned. I am ok with having off nights, but we try to do our routine whenever…

Dear New Mama...

Becoming a mom is a whole bag of mixed emotions (whether you want to admit that or not). You're excited, anxious, terrified, happy, sad, panicked, overjoyed. Those two pink lines throw your mind into overload as you think about every possible thing you will experience and learn on this new journey. 

Our daughter was a surprise. A BIG surprise, but, we were ecstatic. And terrified. Utterly terrified.…
