Madelyn’s first birthday party

Madelyn’s first birthday party

Happy first birthday to my tiny, perfect niece! I'm still in a little bit of denial that she's already one. When you're a kid, time feels like it draaags on for everything...you have to wait so long before you're old enough to stay home alone, to get your license, to live in your own place. [...]

Nine months of Jameson

Nine months of Jameson

Jameson has officially been in the outside world for as long as he was inside my tummy. I can't believe it! Only three more months and we'll have to start counting our baby's age in years. That's so weird to me! I don't like it. I don't like it one bit. I'll probably switch to [...]

Hospital & Postpartum Survival Kit

I've been meaning to write this post for, oh I don't know, eight months now. I came up with the idea almost immediately after Jameson was born and really wanted to put it together as a way to hopefully help some future mamas. But, you know, I got busy aka distracted. Life, amiright? Anyway, better [...]

Tips for flying solo with a baby

Tips for flying solo with a baby

Jameson and I recently got back from a week-long trip to Georgia for a visit with some family, so I thought I'd write up a little something with some tips and tricks I learned from the vacation - specifically, my advice for flying alone with a baby for the first time. Granted, I did fly [...]

Eight months of Jameson

Eight months of Jameson

Happy eight months, baby boy! There are so many things I miss about the newborn stage (all those sleepy snuggles, itty bitty baby cries, those slooowww blinks and yawns), but every new month just gets better and better. I always say that I wish Jameson would stay this small (and part of me really does [...]

Letter #10

May 6, 2016 Dear Jameson, Almost eight months old already?! I'm not sure where the time is going. But I'm having so much fun with you. You are the perfect little sidekick! We do everything together. If I have some errands to run, you come with me. If I go to lunch with a friend, [...]

Georgia 2016

Georgia 2016

Phew! What a week! Jameson and I (along with my sister Stephanie and her daughter Madelyn) just got home from a six day vacation in Georgia to see my dad's whole immediate family and introduce the babies to everyone. We had such a great time (even though it also really wore us all out) and [...]

Seven months of Jameson

Seven months of Jameson

Life with this little boy is absolute bliss. I guess that's how most mommies feel, but I'm secretly convinced that Alex and I got the best tiny bff out there. 🙂 Seven months is such a blast with Jameson! He is the silliest, sweetest, jolliest, and most fun little guy ever and I just feel [...]

What’s in my diaper bag

What’s in my diaper bag

+ diaper bag: Ju-Ju Be B.F.F. + nursing cover: Covered Goods I thought I'd do this fun little post really quick for any moms-to-be out there who are wondering what exactly they'll actually need in their diaper bags (I used to way over-pack mine haha). Jameson is almost seven months now so I pack a [...]

We had brunch in the morning with Alex's parents, attended our church's special Easter service in the afternoon, and then ended the day at my parents' house for a delicious dinner! I hope you all got to spend time with your loved ones, I hope [...]
