Disciplining Toddlers – Is that even a thing?

How to Discipline a Toddler
Hi! So not to sound like an annoying blogger but…after I posted the below photo of Piper with a bag over her head, I literally had hundreds of messages from people asking me to share whatever advice I received ;). SO many people said, “I’m in the same boat, please tell me what you find out!” Anyways, it feels good to know I’m not alone! And neither are you – I’m here to help! I…

Cleobella #BellaBeauty Feature

Cleobella Mommy and Me Dresses | Cleobella Littles | Carly Campbell Photos
I love to get the girls a couple of pieces every season from Cleobella’s Littles collection. They’re so cute on, and they’re ones that I keepsake when the girls grow out of them. Angela O’Brien, the owner and creative director of Cleobella, is such an amazing, creative, genuine human. She honestly lights up any space that she’s in, and I’m so honored today to be featured as her latest “#BellaBeauty”. You can read the whole…

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

I’m really trying to plan ahead with holidays/gifting this year, because it’s so much more fun when you take the time and put thought into it instead of scrambling last minute, like I normally do! That being said, today is May 1st and Mother’s Day is fast approaching!! (It’s May 12th, in case you didn’t realize that yet! Ha!) I decided to post some of MY favorite ideas for Mother’s Day gifts this year. These…

Toddler Parent Hacks we are Currently Using

Toddler parent hacks
Anyone who’s seen me lately knows I’m tired (probably just by looking at me!) I honestly didn’t think having twins was that hard, until they learned to walk. Chasing them around now is exhausting, and if you look away for a second they’re into something dangerous. There are a lot of things that I’d do if I had one baby, but can’t physically manage with two. They don’t want to be in a stroller anymore,…

PTSD and NICU Parents

Birth story | Preemie Twins born at 30 weeks | NICU
Recently a family member sent me an article from the Wall Street Journal entitled, For Parents of Ill Children, a Growing Recognition of PTSD. As I read the article, I couldn’t help but cry. I felt so validated for so many feelings I’ve had over the last 18 months, and so much less alone to be able to put specifics words (and a scientific study) to those feelings. PTSD and the NICU PTSD in soldiers who’ve seen…

The Perfect Baby Gift | Still Novel

Since I’ve become so familiar with baby stuff/gear, I’m asked daily for baby gift ideas. Embarrassingly enough, this is a question I have a hard time answering. It’s tough to find something to give someone that they don’t already have, that they will actually use, and that will hold some sort of meaning. I was so excited when I received framed prints from Still Novel, because they’re so unique and special. When I received my own…

The California Super Bloom with Romy and Piper

This last weekend, both my little brother and sister ended up in town visiting. She lives in D.C. and he goes to school at the University of Utah, so having them here together was so special for me. We joked about how different their visits are now than they used to be – I feel self conscious about the fact that we move a lot slower with the babies. But I also take pride in…

Romy + Piper’s First Ski Day

Romy and PIper Skiing | Roxy Baby Snow Suit
We’ve been dying to get to the mountains with Romy and Piper this winter, and we finally made it. Blake’s been joking about how he wanted to ski with the girls – one in front and one on his back – and he got to make it happen! Saturday we took them up to Sundance Resort (if you’ve been a reader for a while you know this is one of our very favorite places –…
