Newborns are so snuggle-y and adorable, so it’s no wonder why people want to stop by for a visit when you bring you new bundle of joy home. But life with a newborn can also be a tiring and overwhelming time for a mom. Some new moms want all the visitors they can get, while others prefer to have

I absolutely love the way Iris’ room turned out. It’s simple and neutral with whimsical touches and soft pops of pink. My favorite thing in the nursery is the song lyric sign hanging over her crib. Iris was named after my mom and my grandma (who passed away when I was 12, but I was very very close to her). Iris’ middle

Iris and I got to fly out to Cincinnati a few weeks ago to visit P&G headquarters, home of Pampers diapers. We learned about the science behind Pampers diapers, what makes them great, and how much thought Pampers puts into their diapers. Up until that trip, I didn’t know much about what goes into making a diaper. I knew I liked

OUR BEDTIME ROUTINE WITH A TODDLER & BABY

By | parenting | No Comments

Bedtime, every mom’s favorite time of the day, with nap time being a close second. Haha! Just kidding. I love when my girls are awake too. But I also love that they are good little sleepers. One of the biggest reasons I think they sleep so well, is because we have a consistent bedtime routine. Bath, lotion, books, songs, sleep. We use

A mom carries her baby for 40 weeks. She deals with the aches and pain of pregnancy, the emotional roller coaster of changing hormones, and the stress of being responsible for another human. She deserves to be treated to something just for her. The baby will get a lot of gifts at the baby shower and when he/she is born. Mom will sacrifice buying something for herself so she can buy diapers or wipes or an adorable outfit for her little one. So why not

I’m three months into being a mother to two kids (Iris 3 months and Hazel 22 months), and I’ve got to say, it’s way easier than I expected. It’s been so much fun and I’m really loving it! That’s not to say that it hasn’t had its struggles, but I think

If I’m being completely honest, this makeup routine probably takes me more like 7 minutes, but 5 minutes is a better title. Haha! Before becoming a mom, I used to take a lot longer to get ready, but now, I barely have enough time, so I’ve had to take some steps out of my routine (no more fancy eyeshadow) and find little tricks to make applying my makeup faster. Like using the

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
