  • Colorful things for kiddos is necessary (in my opinion) especially for leaning (duh) colors. But not everything needs to be neon. And not everything needs to be pink and purple. Above are a few favorite simple things. A couple at the top of my list are the utensils and bib. We own one bib. One. The size is adjustable, easy to…

  • Like any good set up, a friend introduced me to Noble Carriage (I’m forever indebted to you, Caitlin Flemming). I fell hard for Noble Carriage. It’s a one-stop shop for beautiful, fun clothing and toys that I feel good about Isla wearing and playing with. Whether it be lotion or fabric, I pay attention to what goes on Isla’s skin…

  • I had no idea Easter was fun. Enter Isla. She’s clearly too young to grasp what Easter is about, religious or otherwise, but that ain’t stoppin’ this mama. Basket and goodies, egg dying kit, and candy filled eggs have all been purchased. Between her birthday party and Easter, I may have lost my mind with decorations. But you only get…

  • It’s pretty surreal to be planning Isla’s first birthday. As I plan the party, I keep thinking about what I was doing a year ago – impatiently waiting, excited to finally lay eyes on this tiny person (like, a REAL person, I grew a human being, still so crazy). It was such an awesome time, there’s nothin’ else like it.…

  • Be mindful – I am very fortunate to be able to share a meal with Isla three times a day. That time is  something I’ve begun to really enjoy. We eat at the table and “talk”. Listening to her babble in between bites is becoming quite entertaining. I want to teach her to be aware of what she’s eating and…

  • These valentine bundles from Noble Carriage are the sweetest! Noble Carriage is the very best at curating creative gift boxes for the holidays. My inner 80’s child is freaking out over that unicorn bundle. I like that these sweet boxes are filled with things that your little valentine will actually use. I bought those Gray Label booties for Isla, she wears them…

  • Let me begin by saying this is my opinion, based on my experience. I fully respect and understand that everyone has their own thoughts and experiences that may be way different from mine. So, with that said, here’s how I see it – from pregnancy through the first year of motherhood, following my gut, using patience, listening to my OB…

  • Simple, modern baby clothing and accessories are becoming increasingly popular (thank god), but there are still some items that are harder to find, like pacifier clips. I’ve seen clips that are insanely ornamental, and the fabric ones can get grimy looking over time. I limit Isla’s pacifier use to nights, but there are times when we’re out at dinner and…

  • Isla’s been on several flights and driven cross country. She’s obsessed with books, so that’s been our saving grace. Isla’s a happy traveler, but babies throw curve balls all the time. She’s 9 months old, so her expectations of being occupied are high. And it’s not just the plane ride, it’s the time spent at the airport that little ones…
