How I finally got my baby to sleep

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? What worked best […]

Surviving Mother’s Day

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? This year is going to be my first official Mother’s Day. It is so weird to even type that out. Last year, I was uber pregnant and imagining how future Mother’s […]

Parker’s Birth Story

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”… Throughout my pregnancy I had only one birth plan in mind, I wanted a natural birth, no drugs, especially no epidural! At each check up appointment with my OBGYN, everything was […]

Paleo Bakehouse

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? Having celiacs disease has been a life changing journey […]

Our food journey-starting solids

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 […]

Happy New Year

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 […]

My baby doesn’t sleep!

I remember when weekends meant sleeping in, enjoying that mid-morning cup of joe while relaxing with my feet up, but…my baby doesn’t sleep! When baby doesn’t sleep, no one sleeps! Although, since I am exclusively breastfeeding and a stay-at-home mommy, I told my husband I would do ALL the late night feedings and diapers. Man […]

Dear Nursing Pillow

Motherhood, awe! The blood, tears and joy of my journey would not be the same without my nursing pillow. When Parker finally latched after what seemed like days of struggling, I couldn’t stop my emotions. I can’t believe he’s doing it! I can’t believe I’m doing it! It felt like the biggest miracle ever. This […]

Why I dont post full frontal pictures of my child

I love social media, it’s a great tool for communication, I can definitely admit that. I love being able to stay in touch with friends and family and I also like when people “like” and comment on my posts. That being said, I didn’t post a lot about being pregnant on Instagram or anywhere else. […]

Postpartum Body

Many moms-to-be don’t stick to their regular workout routines during pregnancy. If you’re one of those, like myself, don’t be so hard on yourself. Your body was created for an amazing journey, be proud of all you are and all of the stories your marks and scars may tell. I started to ween myself away from […]
