Motherhood, it does more than change your way of thinking and it’s not just about the child you now belong to, or the club you’ve been inducted into. Your place in the world changes, your purpose becomes abundantly clear. No matter what you thought before that moment, no matter who or what you loved, no … Continue reading Welcome Home Mama Bear
A few months back, I read a post on social media that said something like “You only get 18 sweet summers with your children, this is one of those 18. Remember that.” I thought about that for a minute, and thought back wondering if my summers had changed after high school…I guess they had, though … Continue reading The Last Days of Summer
I’ve always had a love of reading, ever since I was a little girl, so it’s not surprising that I’d want my own little one to love books too. For that reason, and also because I think you’re never too young to get lost in a good book, I’m constantly growing her own little library. … Continue reading Building a library, one book at a time
When it comes to baby wearing there are plenty of options, in both structure and style. You can wear your babes with a sling that uses a built in ring, a wrap that you tie, or your classic click and snap carrier. I’ve tried them all, and at first often switched between our Cuddle Bug … Continue reading 5 ways baby wearing makes life easier

Ah the holidays. That beloved time of year where families come from near and far to get together and celebrate. It's a time for cheer, good food, and the yummiest of wines. A time for road trips and cramped guest rooms and, well, panic as you wonder how you're going to get through it all … Continue reading Prepping for a Holiday Road Trip
As a Florida native, hurricanes don't generally make me shake in my boots...that is until now. I want to say it's because of Allie and this strong urge to keep her safe. I want to say it's because Hurricane Irma is the stronger storm to brew on the Atlantic, well, ever. I want to say … Continue reading Weathering the storm, baby and all
Vaccinating your baby is one of the most important decisions you’ll face as a new parent, whether you choose to do it or not. If you decide not to, then you might spend a lot of time worrying about your kiddo being around lots of people and what air borne diseases they might contract, and … Continue reading The Vaccine Dilemma
It feels like a lifetime has passed since I turned 30 last summer. I now have a laughing, loving, drooling bundle of joy that I adore more than I could have ever imagined. My dream job turned out to be less than a dream, and my company turned out to have less than interest in … Continue reading Turning 31 – Happy Birthday to Me
I don't think I've partied on the 4th for a few years now, and I don't see that changing much. By party, I mean drink and light fireworks and all that comes with that. Last year this was around the time that I found out I was pregnant. I was just trying to figure out … Continue reading Happy Birthday America
I can't believe that the Tampa Baby Expo is in just a few weeks. I've been trying to contain my excitement since I bought tickets last month and now that we're just 19 days away, I can't hold in my excitement anymore. And yes, I'm counting the days...plus (in case you didn't notice) I added … Continue reading Baby Expo Here I Come
