Baby Milestones

See which milestones to track as your baby grows, hear from other parents experiencing these firsts, and get great ideas for how to record each big (and small) baby event.

A Bittersweet Move

It’s never easy to say good bye to certain chapters of our lives. Especially the ones that bring us so much joy. I am so sad but also so excited to be closing one chapter of our lives and opening up a new one to make brand new memories in.

Oh Happy Day!

At the end of most days I find myself looking back on what happened during the day and wishing I would have done something differently when it comes to parenting Baylor. Sometimes it is pretty significant things and sometimes its the tiniest of details that I wish I could change. The great thing about kids is that they always have a way of reassuring you that you are doing the best you can.

7 Things My Little Girl Does That Make Me a Very Proud Mama

As moms, we always want to do what’s best for our kids. We also want them to do what’s best for themselves. It makes us feel like we taught them well and that they will be just fine when the day comes for them to go live their own lives (oh, how I dread that day).

Embracing the Unexpected: What My Son’s Birth Taught Me

When I was pregnant with Baylor I was a nut for researching birth plans, birth stories, and anything to do with what would happen during labor and delivery. I wanted to be as educated as possible, as I’m sure every first time mom does. I created a birth plan that was tailored to what my husband and I wanted to experience during the birth of our first son. I was so proud of it and adamant of going by it completely. Little did I know, my little man and my body had other plans.

Nearing the End of Our Breastfeeding Journey

If you had told me, when Judah was just three months old, that I’d still be nursing him at ten months, I would have given you a very dubious look, perhaps a doubtful guffaw. Our breastfeeding journey was still so new then, fraught with physical challenges and emotional obstacles. Now, as we’ve been weaning over the past few weeks, I can’t believe I’ve been breastfeeding Judah for this long. The fact that I’m taking my time weaning him reveals just how much I don’t want to end this unique connection I share with my son.

I truly never thought I would have lasted this long and now that our breastfeeding journey is slowly coming to an end, I find it hard to say goodbye.
