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, […]

Friday Favorites // 9.29.17

This week was full of sunshine, summer-like temperatures, and a whole lotta teething. Riv is uncomfortable about 80 percent of the time, constantly shoving his hands into his mouth, drooling up a storm, and screaming more often than not. I feel like he’s only comfortable when he’s asleep. Poor little guy! Watching your kid in […]

One Shirt//Three Ways feat. PinkBlush

One of my very favorite things is mustard. I like it on my burgers, I like dipping my fries in it, and I like wearing it on my sleeves. Wait, what? Ok, sorry. I couldn’t resist. But seriously, I LOVE the color mustard. It’s a go-to for me all year long, but especially in the […]

Friday Favorites // 9.22.17

I’m a (shameless) consumer in every sense of the word. If I’m not reading The Skimm, watching TV, scrolling through Instagram, checking a million different apps, reading the news, or sifting through endless blogs, I’m either keeping my baby alive or fast asleep. I’m usually on information overload, yes, but I also feel like I […]

The Baby Advice You Never Knew You Needed

I’ve had a few slightly awkward run-ins with strangers lately and it got me thinking about all the unsolicited advice and strong-worded warnings I got, both while I was pregnant and now. One of my best friends is due in February and I can’t stop fixating on the fact that people are going to start […]

Four Months

Everyone told us that four months is the best age and I finally understand what all the hype is about. Riv is the sweetest little guy lately and is making us laugh more than ever. Everything is new and exciting for him and he’s become so curious about his surroundings. Whether he’s feeling the sand […]

Camping at Wishon Village

At the beginning of August, we took our first camping trip since Riv was born. Before you get too impressed, I should probably disclose that we were in an air conditioned trailer with a full kitchen and bathroom. And the other family we went with cooked all of the meals. And my sister also came […]

More Love, Less Hate

Last night, I posted about having a really good day on Instagram. Almost immediately, I felt a huge sense of guilt. While I’m relishing in the fact that my day consisted mostly of a giggling, well-rested baby, a large majority of the world is engulfed in pain, social injustice, and fear. Sure, I’m allowed to […]
