The first two weeks with Margot were so easy. Ok, so waking up 2-3 times each night left us feeling a little tired, but she slept all day and barely cried. We were on that new parent high – completely obsessed with this tiny, perfect person. We’re still obsessed but …

I’m not sure how it happened but Margot is already one month old and I got some time at the computer today. She’s napping in her bassinet but just made a little noise so I’ll probably need to take a break or five. This should be interesting. July 6th was …

I’ve done a pretty terrible job at documenting this pregnancy, averaging less than 1 post per month and not really sharing regular updates. But here’s the thing: I am so, so excited to become a mom and cannot wait to meet our daughter. Had I spent every day throwing up …

It’s no secret that I don’t have a lot of color in my home. And yes, I plan to stick to a (mostly) neutral palette in our next home because that’s just what I like. But with a baby coming, there’s naturally going to be some color in my home …

A few months ago, my mother-in-law generously offered to throw a baby shower for me (and her granddaughter-to-be) and I couldn’t say no to celebrating our baby girl. We got together with family and friends on Saturday and it was so special having everyone come together – more so than I …

Now that I’m 24 weeks into my pregnancy and finally past the 18 weeks of the most brutal exhaustion I’ve ever felt, I thought it would be a good time to recap a few lessons I’ve learned the past 5+ months. I never want it to seem like I am …

I’ve always wanted to be a mom, but it wasn’t until very recently that I felt close to being ready. And I’m not sure you’re ever really 100% ready anyway since a few days after we got back from our honeymoon, we talked about maybe holding off for a few months to …
