Reality really hit me hard a few days ago when I received my first purchase for Gabriella in the mail– How cute are these dresses!?!? (Both from Carter’s :) Receiving that package prompted these thoughts… We’re having another baby.  A girl!! But wow… Another baby. There’s going to be 2 little ones now… That means 2 carseats… 2 […]

I’ve seen a lot of different ways people do baby gender reveals & I knew I wanted something were everyone could participate, even the kids.

TIPS FOR NURSING ON AN AIRPLANE (WHEN YOU’RE A SCAREDY CAT LIKE ME)

When I found out we were going to be taking our first flight with a 4 month old the first thing I thought was, “Oh no. Gio won’t take a bottle which means I’m going to have to nurse him not just in public, but on an airplane. A stuffy, tight-spaced airplane, surrounded by people. Greeeeeat.” […]

WHAT’S IN MY DIAPER BAG (FOR A 16 MONTH OLD)

Now that Gio is older I don’t carry a diaper bag with me unless I’m going to be away from the car for a long period of time (visiting at a friend’s house or doing some shopping at the mall). On quick errands I’ll throw wipes, a snack & his sippy cup in my purse […]

CO-SLEEPING VS. CRIB-TRAINING + OUR CURRENT SLEEP SITUATION

Co-sleeping Since the day Gio was born (& for the first year of life) he slept within arm’s reach of me at night. When he was tiny, he was in a pack & play next to the bed. When he got older, he ended up just sleeping in bed with me. It was so convenient to […]

HOW I CRIB TRAINED MY SON IN 3 DAYS: NAPTIME EDITION

Sleep has always been a struggle for us… Getting Gio to sleep, keeping him asleep, etc. Even when he was a newborn he didn’t sleep much & I remember people commenting on how alert he was all the time. He’d take quick 10-20 minute cat naps throughout the day & that was about it. We […]
