Oh my goodness, this was a very highly requested post. Two under two is no joke, here. I hope you all know my intentions are not to write this as a “how to”, but how we are trying to manage life with two kids under two. What’s working for us, and what isn’t. My hope is that maybe I can teach you some tricks, and maybe you can teach me some too!? Read More
I have been getting a lot of questions about Nora’s birth story since my first delivery with Cam was a c-section. I will start out by saying that Nora’s birth was COMPLETELY different, and I am so glad I have been blessed with 2 very different birth experiences. Read More
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
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.

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!

The last time I did a post about nursing and troubleshooting your breast pump (see here), I got a lot of great feedback and even MORE questions. I decided I would compose some of the most frequently asked mama questions following my last post. These questions have everything to do with mommin’, nursing, biting, tantrums, etc. And I promise, I will keep them coming, as long as you all keep those questions coming!
Oh, what a whirlwind nursing can be. As a previous mother/baby nurse, and now a full-time mama, I have gained a lot of experience with breastfeeding, pumping, etc. I am, by no means, an expert; but I thought I would answer some of the most commonly asked questions about this topic.Read More
After going through a lot of trial and error with pumping, I would love to let you mamas in on a couple tips I’ve learned. I went back to work at 12 weeks postpartum and it was rough. Cam rarely had bottles before my return to work, and I was nervous about not nursing him constantly #momguilt.Read More
