It Goes So Fast

I know it’s probably the most common parenting cliche there is, but it’s true. It all goes by so fast. I should know this. Margot is my 3rd baby and so this should come as no surprise to me. Yet here I am again, sitting in my unbelief that she’ll be 1 year old in a matter of weeks. How did this happen? How am I almost out of the infant stage, once again?

Introducing a Sippy Cup to our Exclusively Breastfed Baby

Little Miss Margot is just shy of 10 months old and has never taken a bottle. There just wasn’t ever a reason for her to. As a stay-at-home mom, I’m always near and thankfully, I’ve been able to breastfeed her since she was born. Now that she’s older and eating some meals with us at the dinner table, we wanted to introduce a sippy cup to her, so that she could have water with her food. While breastmilk is still her main source of nutrition, I’m no longer nursing her on demand or as often as I was the first few months of her life. 

5 Reasons I Love Having 3 Kids

I’m nearly 10 months into being a mom of 3. And I’ve got to say, it has taken some getting used to. With your first baby, everything is new and different, but totally wonderful.

Sleep becomes a fond memory of the past. As hard and exhausting as it all is, 3 kids has been amazing. Here are 5 reasons I love being a mom of 3…

The Face of Pure Joy

Is there anything better than watching your babe explode with joy?! Little Miss Margot is over the moon with her new Lion King Drop ‘n Roar Simba toy. As soon as I put it on the floor and let her play, she started squealing! It plays some music and Simba and Zazu both say a few things. Her favorite part though, was watching the balls slide down the slide and come out of Simba’s mouth! Pure joy!
