Our Pick for Stroller/Carseat Combo

Bugaboo Donkey2 | Maxi Cosi Mico Max 30 | Choosing a carseat and stroller combo
One of the questions I get the most is: “What stroller and car seat combo did you pick?” I totally get why so many people ask because it’s a big decision – one that I researched a ton while I was pregnant! Ultimately, I decided to first pick my stroller, then pick car seats that were compatible (more on that later!)

Things I Want to Remember about Blake (on his 34th birthday)

Today is Blake’s birthday – he’s 34! Today he said, “Man, I’m old.” My response was, “No, you’re just right.” And I honestly feel like all of the sudden everything is just right. Instead of writing something sappy and vague, I decided to share some things I wrote down while we were still in the hospital. They were just some things I wanted to remember about Blake in that time, and I’m glad I wrote…

New Year’s Thoughts and a few Easy Resolutions

Stillwater Morning Robe | How to wear a duster
I’ve never been more excited or more anxious to start a new year! The last 4 months of 2017 was spent in the hospital with the babies, and then when we brought them home the holidays were in full swing. Blake’s been either off of work or working from home since they came home. We’ve fallen into a routine together and managed, but this week Blake goes back to work and all bets are off.…

That Double Stroller Life | Bugaboo Donkey2

Bugaboo Donkey 2 | Palms to Pines
Before we had babies, I didn’t think a whole lot about the big picture of it all. But for some reason, there were just a few moments I envisioned in my head that I was so excited for. One of them was a vision of setting up the nursery with Blake. I pictured being in the nursery together, painting and setting up a crib (little did I know there would be two cribs!) and was…

Baby’s First Christmas

Baby's First Uggs | Baby's First Christmas
Do you know a baby headed into their first winter/Christmas season? ‘Cause I know a couple and I’m having so much fun shopping for them ;). It was all triggered by a sweet friend who bought them their first pair of UGGs. You guys…baby Uggs might be the cutest thing ever! I rounded up my favorite stuff from Nordstrom for “Baby’s First Christmas”, inspired by those baby Uggs of course! Ugg Purl Knit Booties BABY’s…

Streamlining Holiday Shopping with some Cozy Gifts

5 cozy christmas gifts everyone wants
A few nights ago I woke up at 3am (to pump, duh). Normally I can fall right back to sleep afterwards, but this time my mind started spinning around all of the things I need to get done. The girls could possibly come home soon, our time in the hospital has put me behind on so many work deadlines, we are hosting Thanksgiving this week, and we all know how fast Christmas sneaks up after…

Pumping for Preemies & Choosing a Breast Pump

Medela Sonata - Choosing a breast pump
I’ve had so many messages and questions about breastfeeding/pumping, that I decided to try and answer them all in a blog post about my experience with it. People have asked me if I’m breastfeeding, how I’m doing it, what brand of pump I like, and what accessories I use – so here you go! Learning to Pump Just a couple of hours after my C-Section, with the girls in the NICU and me settled in…

The Hardest Days in the NICU

Hardest days in the NICU
During our stay in the NICU, I’ve been surprised by the things that have ended up being the hardest. I’ve also been surprised by the strength and love that comes during those times. Although things got scary, we were lucky to avoid what would be the very hardest day in the NICU – I can’t imagine what it would be like to actually lose a baby. My heart goes out to those NICU Mamas, and…

Getting Ready to Bring the Babies Home | Choosing a Bassinet

Choosing a Bassinet | Happiest Baby | SNOO
Now that the babies are doing so well and taking more and more of their bottles each day, I’m anxious to get things buttoned up at the house before they come home. To me, the most important thing to have ready is our bedroom, since that’s where they’ll be sleeping at first. So Blake and I set up our room with the bassinets we chose last weekend, and I thought I’d share it with you…
