Self Care As A Mom

When I was pregnant, I don’t think I realized how hard it would be to take care of myself after having a tiny human to take care of. I am essentially the “primary caretaker”, which means I’m typically with Grayson all day and that is my main job and focus. Of course, Matthew helps whenever I need him to, but I’m usually fine doing mostly everything on my own. I often get questions on instagram about how I find the...

Baby’s First Pumpkin Patch

This post will basically be just a ton of hella cute photos, but who is complaining?!?! Am I officially a northern Californian now that I say hella? I had to document Grayson’s first time at the pumpkin patch. If you live in placer county, Bishop’s is the best! They have a GIANT pumpkin patch, hay ride, zip lining, corn maze, carousel, train ride, petting zoo, and so much more. First of all, how is my baby SO BIG?! He literally...

Grayson James: 8 Month Update

My baby turned 8 MONTHS OLD on October 28, 2018! He is so much fun, so social, loving, and hilarious. He is truly my best friend, and is showing me his personality every single day. Here are some of the milestones of Grayson this past month: He’s awake longer! I love this, because we can actually do more things. I’m still a slave to his sleep schedule, but it’s much easier to be flexible now that he can be awake...

Baby Milestones

  This post is in collaboration with Signature Care Diapers to talk about baby milestones. All thoughts and opinions are my own. CRAWLING. Mayday, mayday, my baby is crawling! Well, it’s more of an army crawl/schooch, but man, he’s already pretty darn fast and he’s not even on his hands and knees yet. Milestones are my favorite part of raising a tiny human. There is nothing more incredible than seeing your child learn new things, grow, explore, and hit these milestones. I...

Discovery Bowl: Sensory Activity for Infants

I’ve been trying to come up with new activities to do with Grayson to keep him entertained as well as to help develop sensory and motor skills. I feel like as a stay-at-home-mom, there’s only so much you can do with your baby! For me, it seems as if we do the same things and I feel like I’m not stimulating Grayson enough. I can’t take full credit for this idea, but I started doing a Discovery Bowl with Grayson...

Grayson James: 7 Month Update

I’m pretty sure I’ll say this every month and year until the day I die, but HOW is my little baby already 7 months? Insane. He seems so much older, alert, aware, and intelligent. His personality is shining, he’s super social, and he’s absolutely hilarious and makes me laugh all the time. He’s loving, cuddly, but also independent and knows what he wants. It’s amazing how much babies change each month. Lets recap on this past month! -Leap 5 happened....

Day In The Life

Good morning! Matthew got up to feed Grayson in the middle of the night last night, so I actually felt like I slept in a longer chunk. Although, even though he gets up, I feel like it’s still interrupted. Will I ever have uninterrupted sleep again? Probably not because I wake up to pee 700x in the night (not as much as when I was pregnant though)! 5am: wake up to pee. I told you. Go back to bed! 6:10am:...
