nora’s newborn session

We had such an amazing time shooting our baby girl’s newborn session with the lovely ladies at Photogenics! I wanted to share with you a glimpse into our light + airy newborn session with Nora. Her pictures turned out perfectly and Cam was a (pretty) good boy while we were there! Let me know what you all think.Read More

my favorites// baby wraps

Since having Nora, I have been utilizing my baby wraps & carriers MUCH more than I did with Cam. Likely because I am having to chase around a toddler, keep the house clean and laundry (semi) caught up- so I need free hands as much as possible. In documenting all my time spent in baby wraps, I have received so many questions about which ones are my favorite, where to get them, etc so I decided to do a post for you all! Read More

what’s in my hospital bag>> second baby


After having Cam and completely overpacking my hospital bag, I realized what is important to bring to the hospital for delivery. I also feel that my years as a mom/baby nurse helps because I know what the hospital already supplies for you. There are so many things you DON’T need, also a couple essentials you don’t want to forget at the same time! I put together a perfect guide for all you mamas-to-be and it’s all about consolidation!

37 week bumpdate

OVERALLSTHERMALBRALETTE

First of all, I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! We all had a GI bug, so not living our best life for Christmas weekend. Not too much has changed since my last bumpdate, honestly! Well, besides the fact that I’m scrambling last minute to do EVERYTHING. Typical me, I guess. We don’t have her room totally ready, we don’t have Cam in his new room, we don’t have a name totally decided on, neither of our bags are packed, the base isn’t in the car, etc. we are really a spectical over here.

32 week bumpdate


Once again, another month goes by and I haven’t done a “bumpdate”. Some of you started asking why and honestly I just forgot! It’s been so busy around here with the holidays and BABY coming soon! Ahh! We are slowly getting things together around our house. It’s hard at the same time because I decorated for Christmas and will have to literally tear it all down so fast after, so that our house is fresh and clean and ready for baby girl mid-Jan. A couple of updates for you guys now!Read More

toddler boy gift guide + cam’s wish list


DRESS SHIRT // TOOL BENCH // SWEATER // JEANS + SUSPENDERS // STUFFED PUPPY // CHRISTMAS PAJAMAS //FUR POM BEANIES //CAMPFIRE KIT // SWEATER “OH DEER” // WOODEN TRUCK TOY (similar) // HUNTER BOOTS

With the season upon us, I thought it would be helpful for you boy mamas/aunts that I put together a guide with some toddler boy gift ideas. Everyone always says how “hard it is to dress boys” or how there are “so many cute girl things, but not enough boy things”, and I find them very wrong about that! I hope that these gift guides are somewhat helpful, especially during the holiday season. All of the things I am listing off have either been purchased by us for Cam, or on “his” Christmas list. I always get questions about where I shop for Cam, so hopefully this helps!Read More

last halloween as a family of 3




Is it awful of me to say I’m so sad this is our last Halloween as a family of 3? Cam is getting to be such a fun age to trick or treat with and I feel that the years are just going to get better! It will be fun to add in our new addition for halloween, but I always secretly feel guilty at the same time. This year was a blast! We had my parents over for chili, drinks, and scary movies after trick or treating with Cam. Check out his amazing costume below!Read More

28 week bumpdate


DIAPER BAG // JOGGERS // TEE

Okay- I asked if you all wanted to see another bumpdate and majority said yes! I’m still being a total slacker letting 8 weeks go by since my last, but life is busy! We have had some crazy ups and downs the past couple weeks that I’ll disclose at a later time, but for now I do have something SO exciting to share about this pregnancy (well for me it is)! Read More
