Baby in Bloom: Springtime with Judah!

Now that the warmer weather has finally arrived, we are thrilled to be able to take Judah outside to enjoy this beautiful, blooming springtime. In addition to Judah’s first flight, we had an extra special opportunity this weekend when we got to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom for the last weekend of the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. It was a positively stunning display and was the first time really since Judah was born that he got to see and experience the beauty and warmth of early springtime.

Here are our favorite photos from our lovely morning visit to the cherry blossoms!

7 Travel Tips We Learned from Baby's First Plane Ride

This was a big weekend for Judah: his very first plane ride! We flew from Boston to Baltimore to spend the weekend celebrating Judah’s great-great uncle’s 85th birthday. My husband and I are both pretty seasoned travelers and we had no idea what to expect when traveling with Judah by plane. Turns out, it wasn’t nearly as bad as it could have been, and Judah was a champ about the entire weekend.

Here are the 7 most important things we learned about flying with baby that we’ll be sure to keep in mind for his next flight… hopefully a flight out to Austin, Texas later this spring!

Nature-Themed Baby Names Inspired by Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh: he’s more than just a silly ol’ bear: he’s a beloved, classic institution of childhoods around the globe! I love all of the classic Winnie the Pooh stories and films, full of magical adventures with his friends in the 100 Acre Woods. The stories of friendship, love, bravery and compassion make everything about Winnie the Pooh a universally-loved children’s character; combined with the setting of all his adventures in the 100 Acre Wood, Winnie the Pooh serves as a wonderful inspiration for nature-themed baby names.

Here are 25 nature-themed baby names inspired by all the magic, wonder and springtime sweetness of Winnie the Pooh!
