lessons from a 36 year old.

I turned 36 on Monday and I don't know if it is the pregnancy or being another year older, but it was a bit emotional and very insightful. I posted about my "scary age" last year and some of the things I was thankful for -- and if I'm being really honest, cried...

second baby registry essentials.

I've got to be honest, when I had several people ask me about a registry for Baby Boy, I was kind of shocked. Do people create registries for second babies? Did I want to create one? Was I going to have a "sprinkle"? Was there a point to a second registry? And yes --...

what I learned in year two of parenting.

Well just like that Adelaide is TWO. I know it sounds so cliche, but I honestly can't believe it -- it seems like just yesterday we were talking about her first birthday. If you're a parent, you know that the unsolicited advice is never ending, but one piece that...

another surprise! it’s a BOY!

Can you believe it? I can't! We were so excited to see that + sign on the stick and now we are OVER THE MOON to know that it's a boy! And I've got to be honest, this has been a hard secret to keep over the past couple of months ... Keep reading and I'll fill you in on...
