I’m sure we’re all familiar with this scene: You’re trying to change your baby on the changing table and your little one has a different idea. They are playing, wiggling, and fighting to get free from the dreaded changing table. It takes all your energy to keep them on their back just long enough to get their butts cleaned, then they’re flying past you trying to swan dive off the table again. Exhausted and defeated, you throw the pants on the floor and say “just forget it”.

You guys! We all know how much of a bow obsession I have! Lucy has so much hair and I just love to do it up it pony tails and pigtails with all types of different bows. Big bows, small bows, satin bows, metallic bows! I just can’t get enough. So when I found Sutter Sisters bows, my heart almost exploded. Not only do they have the cutest bows ever, but they also provide a MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION! Now you can have bows sent directly to your house, every month! My dream come true!

Starting solids can be an exciting, yet stressful time for you and baby. Most moms start the transition to solids somewhere between 4-7 months, but it’s important to look for signs that your baby is ready to start solids. You never want to start them too early. Some of the signs you can look for are:

First off, I want to start with an apology for being off the grid the past two weeks. I feel terrible about missing my weekly post and updates on my social media sites, but between a vacation, hospital visit and some family issues, things have been a bit hectic around here. I meant to have this post up the week after the cabin, but life got in the way, so here we are.

Having a newborn is a tough time for most parents. Especially if you’re a first time parent. There are so many products on the market these days, it’s hard to know what you actually need and can get away without.

Doing a photoshoot can be scary, but doing a maternity photoshoot is a whole other story. I’ve modeled just shy of a decade, and I was still so nervous when it came to every maternity shoot I did. It’s a time where you feel most vulnerable and not yourself, so feeling sexy and confident can be a bit difficult.

When Once Upon a Farm asked me to do a one week trial and review of their product, I was a little skeptical. I usually make all of Lucy’s food myself so I know exactly what’s in it. It’s surprising to see how much sodium, sugar and crazy additives are in baby food, even the trusted brands we all know and love.

If you know me, you know I am a book fanatic. From the start I have always planned to make my children love books as well. So far, I’d have to say, I’m doing a good job! Lucy loves book. She follows them and you can tell she is really engaged. She loves turning the pages and she always laughs along and has so much fun. We have a lot of different books, but of course she has her favorites.

Last Friday we took a last minute trip down to Carmel/Monterey along the coast. Aaron had some business down in Carmel, so he invited us to tag along! Lucy and I were so excited! It was going to be her first time there! So we packed up Lucy and hit the road!

Everyone’s always asking me what our diaper bag necessities are, so I figured I’d write up a list and share all my favorites! Being a new mom, I’ve learned that having a fully stocked diaper bag can turn a potential disaster into a small hurdle. And every mom can use a little win from time to time, am I right?
