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.

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

By | parenting | No Comments

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!

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
