A Family Beach Day

A Family Beach Day

Happy Monday!  We started the week off with a family run. It felt nice to get the legs moving for a 6 miler after eight full days of rest. I also got to try out my Milestone Pod for the first time and it was […]

Friday Favorites [6]

Friday Favorites [6]

We made it to Friday!  This week has felt both like it flew by and lasted forever. Our air conditioning pooped out on us last week so we’ve spent every day trying to manage the heat which generally means taking trips to Target to cool […]

What Lavinia Ate: 12 Month Old Meal Ideas

What Lavinia Ate: 12 Month Old Meal Ideas

Navigating what to feed your baby can be challenging. I tend to gravitate towards feeding Liv a simplified version (or smaller cut up version) of what Henri and I are eating. It just makes meal time a lot less stressful when you only have to worry […]

My Thoughts on Lavinia Turning One

My Thoughts on Lavinia Turning One

Tomorrow our little girl turns the big O-N-E!  It’s strange how time works… in some ways it feels like we were just anticipating her arrival on our drive to the birth center and in others it feels like she’s been a part of our family forever. […]

Avo-Nana Pudding: Feeding Fun with Num Num Inc.

Avo-Nana Pudding: Feeding Fun with Num Num Inc.

The first time I heard about Baby Led Weaning I was really intrigued by the idea. I mean letting your baby feed themselves frees you up to snack/eat your meal at the same time. Win, win! But when it came down to it Henri was a […]
