Having our this bundle a few months ago and getting back into a breastfeeding routine has been both amazing, yet stressful at the same time. With both other kids, I had major milk supply issues. I couldn’t even nurse Landyn past three months and I had to really work hard trying everything in the books to increase my supply when we learned Lavery suffered from a dairy and soy allergy. Thankfully, I was able to surpass my struggle and nurse Lavery past her first year. With Lakelyn this time around, my milk supply has been amazing from...

Deciding which diaper route to take was a little harder the third time around than either of the other two times. When I was pregnant with LC, I really just did what other people I knew did.. with everything; especially diapers. Cloth diapering never really crossed my mind. Actually, I lied. It crossed my mind and after a quick internet search I thought, “No way!” and ran as far away from that topic as I possibly could. I thought cloth diapers was still the clothes pins and folded cloth and I didn’t find much telling...

I would say summer is officially here.. whether the calendar says so or not. It’s HOT. It’s literally sweltering lately here in the Carolina’s, so we haven’t gotten much outdoor time in other than a few short trips to the pool lately. Today, my little lady and I had some fun on the trampoline while her baby sister napped and big brother read some books. This girl can jump… and she HAS to, to get out some of that energy she has built up from spending so much time indoors in a last ditch effort to stay somewhat...

Now that school is out, this mom can finally BREATHE. This first month with three little kiddos around has been a learning experience for me. Trying to figure out how to tend and care for the baby while I spend time with the big kids has left me feeling like a clown juggling eight balls and barely able to keep them all afloat. I’m not going to sugar coat this whole three kids business… it’s hard! BUT… thankfully, I’ve found a few products that help make the adjustment just a little bit easier. Enter the Soothe...

Well, to say we’ve had a crazy few weeks in our house would be an understatement. It’s been one thing right after the other these days, so we were so looking forward to a nice relaxing Memorial Weekend. We kicked off our weekend last weekend a little early on Thursday with a fun picnic at our preschool… and to go with that, came a new outfit for our little fashionista! Getting dressed each morning is a battle with our little diva child. She always has to be in a pretty dress or a complete meltdown occurs, so when I pulled...

I feel like we’ve spent our entire month of April indoors. The Carolina’s has seen some serious rain lately and we haven’t been able to enjoy that gorgeous spring sunshine we know and love for quite some time. However… we did get in a few hours this week to soak it up and show off some fun new fashion while we’re at it!   My little fashionista has an opinion on everything, but nothing more than what she wears. It’s a battle every morning if I don’t have a “pretty dress” waiting...

  Back when I was pregnant with my first, if you had told me I should look at organic anything; I probably would have looked at you like a deer in headlights. I was absolutely clueless on so many things the first time around and did many things I would do differently now. Then, when I had my daughter, I started to do some things differently. This third time around, I feel like I finally have a full grasp on how I plan to navigate this parenting journey we’re on. One of the biggest debates I dealt with this pregnancy (and trust...

  Two weeks everyone! I cannot even believe that we will be introducing our new baby girl to the world in just about two weeks! This pregnancy has completely flown right by and I’m left here in these final weeks with my head spinning as we try to be sure everything is ready for her arrival! One thing on my list for this third baby I never used with our second is a pack and play. I ended up borrowing one so often when Lavery was a baby, I decided it was a pure necessity this time around. Not to mention the nursery is upstairs...

  These final weeks prepping to bring home a new baby are exhausting, stressful, and busy; yet exciting all at the same time! I still can’t believe I’m getting ready to welcome a second daughter into the world, and all things pink and frilly are not any less fun to stock up on than they were the first time around! I’m so excited to be packing up cute little dresses, headbands, and bows in her diaper bag and even more exciting to accessorize in style with a few of my favorites from Itzy Ritzy!   I am in LOVE...
