Sleeping Training: Our First Week

At three months old, River was sleeping 10 hours most nights. Yes, ten hours of complete, uninterrupted sleep. When I’d tell people this, their jaws would literally drop in disbelief. I wasn’t really doing anything to make this amazingness happen, so I’d just kind of shrug and admit to being lucky. I truly thought Riv […]

Eight Months

We’re getting uncomfortably close to that one year mark and I’m trying really hard not to freak out. Riv is seriously the most fun EVER right now. He’ll pretty much laugh at anything and when he does, he throws his head back and giggles until he can’t catch his breath. I feel like I say […]

Review: Luhvee

I was provided this free product in return for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Like most people these days, I’m terrible at printing any of my eight thousand digital photos. I used to make it a priority to order photo books every year, but I’ve slacked off big time. Recently, […]

Black Friday

Some of these are affiliate partners, which means I may earn a small commission if you purchase certain items.  Thanks! I’ve been getting a bunch of emails about all of the deals today so I figured I’d share some of my favorites, as well as some top picks from each. Nordstrom I’m loving the sleeves […]

Six Months

Sam and I have been talking non-stop about this looming milestone. We can’t believe we’re already a half of a year into this whole parenting thing and kinda, sorta getting the hang of it. When we first brought River home, three months seemed far away, but six months seemed like a lifetime. It literally makes […]

Review: Tubby Todd

For the past couple months, Riv has suffered from eczema. It’s mostly on his stomach, but we’ve also found affected areas on his back, neck, and the inside of his elbows. It started out as small patches and gradually grew to cover large areas of his skin. It didn’t seem to bother him, but as […]

Five Months

I’m happy to report that the last month has been just as fun as the last one and the one before that. River is more alert than ever, which is fun to watch but also makes feeding quite interesting. He’s more concerned about what’s going on around him than actually eating anything, so I have […]

One Year Ago Today

It was exactly a year ago that we found out I was pregnant. I’ve been thinking about this day for a while now and finally found the note in my phone where I had kept somewhat of a journal during those first few months. I considered re-writing it all to make it more concise, but […]

How To Get a Passport for Kids

  So last week, we finally went and got River’s birth certificate. It only took us five months. We’re expecting our parents of the year award to arrive any minute now… We legitimately didn’t know we had to do anything and I guess just assumed the birth certificate fairy would take care of us. Well, […]
