Hazel’s Tie Front Top c/o Pink Blush | Iris’ Floral Dress c/o Pink Blush

The arrival of a new baby can be a huge adjustment for a toddler. Hazel was 19 months old when Iris was born, and I was worried she’d struggle with the fact that she now has to share Mommy and Daddy. Especially because, being a stay-at-home mom, she has gotten 100% off my attention her entire life. So throughout my pregnancy and since bringing baby sister, Iris, home, we have made a conscious effort to

The earlier you start teaching your child colors, the better,  but don’t get discouraged if it takes a while for them to learn and recognize colors.

The newborn stage flies by! Your hear everyone say it but you don’t really realize it until it’s gone. When you’re in the newborn stage, sometimes it can feel like it’s going to last forever. The sleepless night, the crying baby who only stops crying when you’re standing up but all you want to do is sit down, the unpredictable day to day routine. It can be a tough stage to get through. And then in a blink of an eye, it’s gone. Gone are the sleepless nights (well, mostly), gone is the sound of newborn cries. But with that means so many of the

I struggled to find a crib mobile I loved for Iris’s nursery. Well, actually, all the ones I found that I loved were over $100 and I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that much on a crib mobile. So instead, I decided to make one. This crib mobile only cost me $15 to

When the weather is nice, we like to spend as much time as possible outside. There’s just something about being outside in the sun that really wears a kid out and makes them nap extra good, which this mama is a fan of. Haha! Of course, we do the typical activities like going for a walk, going to the park, and swimming at the pool, but it’s also fun to get creative,

Breastfeeding does not come easy for me. With both Hazel and Iris, I had to start supplementing when they were only weeks old. My body just doesn’t produce enough milk. It was really discouraging for me at first. I had planned on exclusively breastfeeding for a year, and it never even crossed my mind that it might not be possible. Everyone says

Sensory tubs are not only fun for kids, but they are also educational. As Bev Bos, a well-known early childhood educator and author, says ““If it hasn’t been in the hand, the body, and the heart, it can’t be in the brain!” Children learn through play, interaction, problem
