Veggies  1 of 1

We’ve always been thankful that for the most part, Liv is an adventurous eater. She loves things that I didn’t enjoy until my 20s (like quinoa, artichokes, pho, chia pudding, and green juices to name a few), and I’m glad that she’ll at least try anything, even if she decides she’s not a fan. Don’t get me wrong, as we definitely have our picky days over here, but I think as far of the grand scheme of things go, she’s a very good little eater.

Occasionally, my friends will ask me how I get her to eat vegetables. The thing is, I don’t really “get” her to do anything. I try to make the food delicious, and something I’d want to eat, and usually if that’s the case, she wants to eat it, too. Another way to get a preschooler to eat something: make it for yourself. They instantly want it haha. 

Here are some of the things that I think have helped:

28 week ultrasound update


Hi friends! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was a great time spent together, but Friday morning was a mix of positive and not-so-ideal news at my ultrasound appointment.

Round 2! Slowing down a bit, but still going strong. <3 Second trimester is usually when things need to be modified for pregnancy, and I’ve found that with a few simple changes, I’ve been able to keep up my activity levels, teaching and workouts. I’m thankful that I still feel energized (for now) as I’m […]

When did your kid drop their nap?


Oh friends. Let us all get out our tiny violins, and join in a sad, melancholy tune:  I think we’ve reached the end of the napping era. (Sigh. The best. So glad I’ve been savoring every second.) I’ve alluded to this on the blog, but our sleep schedule has been off for a while. Liv […]

Registry must-haves

Baby registry must-haves and everything we're glad we saved for baby #2!

(the things we registered for and got a ton of use, and also stood the text of time!) One of the fun yet intimidating aspects of my first pregnancy was trying to figure out our baby registry and what we needed to prepare for Liv’s arrival. Of course, all a baby really needs is to be […]

  Livi: “I’m going to be a doctor.” Me: “What kind of doctor would you like to be?” Livi: “A brain doctor. Then I’m going to give you a shot.”    “I would NEVER, ever, in the whole wide world. I would never kiss a frog!”   “Mom, listen to me. Wait, listen. I said […]

Getting kids involved in the kitchen

This post is sponsored through my partnership with Bitsy’s Brainfood.  While we certainly go through our picky phases over here, we are very thankful that Liv enjoys a variety of foods and is usually up to try something new. Since she was little, we’ve tried to expose her to as much variety as possible, and […]
