Like a snowflake, everyone has different parenting styles. Instead of judging and criticizing, we need to embrace this difference and we would be much better for it.
Take peoples comments like a grain of salt, because after all, you are the mom/dad, not them. This is something I struggle with and I know I am not alone. It’s hard to get criticized, Continue reading Parenting Styles
I have been totally M.I.A lately and apologize, but I have had such a creative block and honestly I have just been soaking up all of my babe before he turned the big ONE! From party planning, his 1st birthday party to our little family vacation and even starting a new “job”, we have been quite busy over here. Not to mention a little regression on the whole sleeping through the night thing [please send coffee]. Anyways, for anyone who wants to read all about what we have been up too, keep on reading! Continue reading Parker’s 1st Birthday + Family Vacation
Well hello! It’s been quite some time and I seriously can not believe I finally get to write this blog. Yep, as the title suggests, my son has finally slept through the night! It’s been a long time coming and we are so beyond proud of him. So, how’d we do it?

Alright, dads/gentleman this is geared towards you *hint, hint* and of course us mother’s, because who doesn’t like to splurge once in a while?

Are you sitting down, good. I have always kind of hated my birth story. I felt like my body betrayed me. I kept thinking “why”… Continue reading Parker’s Birth Story
Okay my sweets loving mamas, do I have some goodness to share.
I stumbled upon Paleo Bakehouse as an Instagram ad (thank you!). I was instantly drawn by the words “gluten free”. Yay, a gluten free monthly subscription of treats, um where do I sign up? Continue reading Paleo Bakehouse
Mama don’t fear-meal time tricks are here!
Starting solids was…lets just say different. My babes HATED IT and I am sure I am not alone on this. He would gag and turn his head in refusal. It was quite hilarious but also very frustrating. Our doctor recommended to us that we should start with a green veggie, so we did, we choose to start with broccoli. He loved it until he didn’t. One day he was so into it, then the next, he would cry like no ones business. It left us extremely confused. Continue reading Our food journey-starting solids
I know…diapers. Riveting, right? But hey, late night, early morning, mid-day, diaper changes are going to happen. It’s something that all parents are familiar with. There is like a gazillion diaper brands on the market, but it’s honestly trial and error when it comes to finding out what type or brand you like. Continue reading Let’s talk diapers!
Mama’s (+ Dada’s) this ones for you.
Creating a baby registry was probably one of the most difficult things for me. There are soooooo many baby products on the market and it’s really hard to focus on what’s actually needed/helpful and what’s just “cool”. Especially trying to do all this while prego, forget about it! Continue reading Baby products I wish I knew about sooner
Happy New Years lovelies! To sum up 2017 in a few short words is easy. But explaining how insanely difficult yet beautiful it has been, is much more hard. So I will say this… Being pregnant and becoming a mom, I am forever changed and better for it. And I am so, so dang grateful for all my accomplishments last year.
