Livi and bell

“I don’t know what Bell-bell’s going to grow up to be. I’m going to be a doctor.”

“What kind of doctor?”

“Um…. well, I want to be a dentist.”

“What’s daddy’s job?”

“To work out.”

“Hahha. Does he teach people how to fly airplanes?”

“Oh. Yeah.”

“What’s mommy’s job?”

“To work out. And clean up stuff.”

Thanks a lot, kid.


[While listening to “Hello” on the radio while driving]

“What is this song?”

“It’s ‘Hello’ by Adele.”

“Adele makes me so sad. This is a very sad song. Will you change it?”


[Switches the station and “My House” by Flo Rida is playing]

“Oh yeah. This is much better. This is a party!”


[While watching Grease LIVE which I totally realize is not the most kid-appropriate movie, but she loves singing and dancing.]

“You just missed Rizzo sing. She was so good.”

Happy 3 months, Penelope! (+ an Owlet giveaway!)

Guess who is 3 months old? That’s a quarter of a year! I can’t even. Miss P is still smiling like crazy, babbling and cooing to her heart’s delight, and chewing on her hands like they’re a delectable treat. I’m convinced that she’s teething because she is always gnawing on her hands, but the ped […]

end of a swaddle era

I think the time has finally come, because we have a Houdini on our hands. To be real, I kind of suck at swaddling. You’d think that by kid #2, I’d be almost pro level, but no. I wrap her up like a delicate flower and 4 seconds later, arms are out. I’ve gotten a […]

Things that have helped

Hi friends. I wanted to say thank you again (SO, so much) for all of your kind comments on last week’s wine date post. The prolapse situation has felt extremely isolating, and I have been sad about it since I was first diagnosed at the ER. I had no idea that it was something that […]

two and through

This post was inspired by my friend Emily’s post, Thoughts on Three. They’ve been debating about adding another kiddo to their family. While I would love to have allthebabies, we’re two and through over here. 😉 It’s funny because as soon as you have a baby, particularly when both of your kids are the same […]

Coping with baby’s reflux

Drink a glass of wine and pray to reflux gods. The end.  If only it were that easy… 😉 One of the questions I’ve received quite a bit lately on our journey with P’s reflux has to do with the emotional side of the situation. It’s usually a variation of the following: “How are you […]

Penelope is 2 months old!

Hi time, where did you go? It’s hard to believe that that what was once a tiny, snuggly squish has already emerged into her own person, with a distinct personality, smiles for days (!), and is so much fun to have around.  Here’s what’s happening at 2 months:

Breastfeeding round 2

Is officially over. This is something I have mixed feelings about. For one, I’m really happy to be able to eat food again, but it sucks (<— pun?) when you can’t feed your baby the way you would in an ideal world. All in all, I’m thankful that I have the resources and medical help […]


“Let’s read my non-infection book.” “Your non-infection book?” “Yes, the one about butterflies.” “You mean your non-fiction book?” “Yeah, that’s it.”   Me: “Let’s get something for P. She looks cold! Her teeth are chattering.” Liv: “Mom, she doesn’t have teeth.”   [drops something] “Son of a nutcracker!”   [At the petting zoo] “Goats don’t think […]

My PDB (Post-Delivery Body): Round 2

Quite a few of you have asked if I’m going to write about my post-delivery body this time, since I wrote about it with Liv. Here we go; although I can’t guarantee how regular this series will be. 😉 I haven’t really had a lot of time to think about my body post baby. I’m […]

Family: Happy 1 month, Penelope

It’s hard to believe this little lady has only been out of my belly for 1 month (+ some change) when it feels like she’s been in our family forever.  It’s been one of the most challenging months, but also one of the most fulfilling. Even though it’s a bit of a blur right now, […]

Home for the holidays

Hi friends <3 Hope you’re having a great morning and enjoyed a wonderful weekend.  In the spirit of keeping it real… (Sweet snuggly baby, blotchy eyes from crying, and a cold sore because my immune system is officially giving me the middle finger)
