I remember when I was pregnant with Hazel, I was so nervous about doing everything right. Was I eating the right foods and taking care of myself the right way? Was I giving my body and Hazel, everything needed so she could grow and be healthy? I remember thinking, “I can’t wait for her to be born so I can stop worrying about her so much”. And then she was born and I realized that the nervousness

It’s crazy to think that we’ll meet baby sister in less than two months! Hazel is obsessed with baby sister (and all things baby). It’s so cute! The nursery is almost complete and Hazel always wants to play in it. When she sees baby clothes, she gets this cute high pitch

Before I became a mom, I had a list of things I’d never do as a mom. My mom and sister would tell me “never say never”, but I was confident in my nevers.

Kids grow up way too fast! I can’t believe how big and tall Hazel is getting! I know time will fly just as quickly with baby #2, and I want to be able to document their growth over the years. I’ve seen the tall wooden measuring stick growth charts at Pottery Barn Kids that cost $100 and love them, but didn’t want to spend that much money, so I decided

These past couple weeks have been so cold and windy. It’s miserable to be outside. When the weather is nice, we like to get out of the house to go for walks around the neighborhood, go to the park, etc. because it wears Hazel out and helps her to nap extra good. But with this weather, we’ve been cooped up inside more, so I’ve been trying to
