Flying Solo.

Today, our amazing Mimi flew back home with Papi after being with us for all of Payton’s life (and long before). It’s safe to say, we have mixed emotions about this. On one hand, I knew she couldn’t live with us forever and that one day I’d need to figure out how to keep Payton […]

Team No Sleep.

Payton turned 6 weeks yesterday, and her birthday present to me was a 6 1/2 hour stretch of sleep! Now granted, I didn’t sleep that whole stretch, but it’s a start. I had taken a peak at our Baby Wise book yesterday (which we quickly gave up on soon after she was born) and it […]

Pregnancy Must Haves.

I have spent countless hours searching for the best maternity clothes. What I’ve found? Don’t waste your money unless you’re buying jeans. Item 1: James Jeans Twiggy Maternity Leggings. I bought these about 3 months ago, and have absolutely loved them.  The under-belly expansion panels and skinny-yet-comfy stretch fit have been perfect for my growing […]

31 Weeks.

Time is flying by, literally. I was thinking this morning, “I should write something on the blog, it’s been a couple weeks.” Wrong. It’s been over a month. 46 days to be exact. Since the wedding, it seems like my life has been in fast forward. My husband, Andrew, got a promotion that is sending […]
