As we finish up Baby Week and count down the weeks until his arrival, I thought it'd be fun to give you a little tour of Jackson's nursery! The "nursery" is actually the master bedroom closet, which is the perfect size for a crib, a toy box and a skinny Ikea wardrobe to hold his…

Nursing babies and dairy intolerances

Her first taste of ice cream...after which she threw up all over me. Amy recently shared her experience with discovering that her kids have "hidden" dairy intolerances. Based on the number of comments she got and the questions I got on Instagram when I mentioned that I'm getting ready to eliminate dairy from my diet…

Preparing for Baby with a Freezer Full of Meals

While most of my preparing-for-baby tasks have more to do with the blog or house projects, freezer cooking is on my list as well, and I finally got a plan typed up so that I can (hopefully!) knock it out in just a day or two in the next month or so. I'm sharing the…

Preparing for Baby with a Freezer Full of Meals

I fully believe in the benefits of freezer cooking, and I honestly wish I was better at actually doing it. Unfortunately, as many times as I've thought about it over the past six years, the only time I've ever actually pulled it off is before having a new baby. Before our last two babies were…

Simple Summer Maternity Style

Let's be clear: a fashionista, I am not. Most of my clothes are hand-me-downs from my mom and sister (both of whom are very fashionable), and I'm perfectly okay with just having a few outfits that I really love and feel good in. And truthfully, most days at home during the summer find me in…

When I was pregnant with our oldest daughter, I devoured as many parenting books as I could get my hands on. I'm pretty good about taking the advice that makes sense to me and leaving the rest, but I'll admit I was left a bit confused by all the conflicting advice in various books and…

The Great Family-Size Question: How Do You Know You’re Done?

  • Post author:
  • Post category:Parenting

I always wanted 5 kids. (Well, except when I was little and I wanted 9!) But I thought we would have 5, and I was sure I would never feel done. Then, a funny thing happened. While I was in labor with #4, I thought, "I don't think I can ever do this again." I…

Our Bradley Method Birth Plan

The following post is from Katie of Kitchen Stewardship: "I don't care if you stand on your head to push as long as baby is doing okay." It seemed like every time I saw my new OB-GYN, he reassured me that I could have the birth I wanted (unless there was a medical problem) with…
