hey baby!

journaling through pregnancy

Happy Friday friends! I hope you have a fun and relaxing weekend ahead of you! No "bumpdate" this week, so today I'm just popping by to share one of my favorite parts of pregnancy - journaling to my baby! I wrote letters to Eleanor through my entire pregnancy. They ranged from doctor appointment updates to progress [...]

three cooks one kitchen salmon

This weekend, Erin hosted Hannah and I for a night of cooking and our January Three Cooks One Kitchen! Hannah has recently started eating fish again, so we decided it was the perfect opportunity to cook up something new - Taco Spice Rubbed Salmon and a spicy vegetable side. To be completely honest, Hannah and [...]

when colds strike

nyquil cold

Getting sick yourself is no fun, but there's one thing that's worse: when your husband and toddler are sick. Our whole family caught colds a couple of weeks ago and in a word, it was miserable. It's hard to see your little one be uncomfortable and possibly even harder to listen to your significant other [...]

morning resolutions

morning resolutions stonyfield

In effort to have a better run household in 2015, Jeff and I have revamped our mornings. We've realized that when planned correctly, they can be the most productive part of our day. Let's face it, after Jeff puts in a full day at the office and I chase a toddler all day, we're both [...]

bumpdate: 26 weeks

26 week pregnant baby bump

It's FRIDAY! And that means it's time for another "bumpdate!" I'm 26 weeks today which means the next time we chat about baby girl, I'll be in my 3rd trimester. Everything has been going very smoothly. I had a doctor's appointment last week, and baby was measuring right on track. I'm getting anxious to get [...]

a “special” snack

Sometimes our daily routine can get a bit monotonous - it's easy to get stuck in a rut and do the same things over, and over, and over. Special K gave Eleanor and I the chance to try out their brownies, and I knew they were just what I was looking for to change up [...]

I try not to spend too much time dwelling on the past, but today I thought I'd share a few of the things I've been thinking about when it comes to pregnancy. This is my second pregnancy, but I think this info might be helpful to first time and veteran moms alike. Overall, this pregnancy [...]

weekend snaps

Hello and happy Monday! We enjoyed temps in the 50's this weekend which is a pleasant change from the subzero days we've been having! We had another great (busy) weekend - I'll let the photos do most of the talking... On Thursday we hit up Toddler Time at Mommy Fitness again. Eleanor is coming out [...]

today I know I’m pregnant

today i know i'm pregnant

There's a funny thread on one of the pregnancy message boards I follow that always puts a smile on my face. Ever since we started connecting with each other around 6 -7 weeks, there has been an ongoing stream of "today I know I'm pregnant" posts. They range from bizarre cravings to not so funny aches [...]

becoming a mom of two

becoming a mom of two

In just 15 short weeks, my life (well, our whole family's lives) will change forever. We'll go from a family of 3 to 4. I'll go from a mom of 1 to 2. And while she's not in my arms yet, with every punch, kick and flip, my baby girl reminds me that she's already [...]
