Dairy-Free Morning Glory Muffins for the Whole Family

April 8, 2019

We continue to introduce new foods to Owen, always try to give him a little of what we’re eating, but despite our best efforts he’s been on a serious kick of fruit, yogurt and carbs for a long time. I’ve chatted with chefs and dietary experts, all of whom have been super reassuring that Owen’s eating habits will in fact change (he can’t eat this many peanut butter sandwiches for all of eternity) and that where we’re at isn’t as bad as it can get when it comes to toddlers and their pickiness. Parents of picky eaters I see you, I hear you, we will survive!

My Second Trimester With Baby #2: Weeks 13 Through 18

April 4, 2019

You guys, I have officially made it into that sweet spot of the second trimester where you’re feeling mostly good and let me tell you it is glorious. I mean don’t get me wrong, I still feel pregnant, but I’m so much more productive and just feeling happier and healthier in general. Even though I’m well aware that strong symptoms in the first trimester are a positive sign, I can’t help but use the word healthy when I’m speaking of no longer feeling sick.

Knowing When It’s Time to Pivot With Your Business

April 2, 2019

I’ve been feeling the push for quite awhile, but a few weeks ago it really hit me that it was officially time to pivot with my business. I have been disenchanted with social media for months, if not longer. I know a lot of you share the same discontent with the way you personally interact with these apps that we put so much time and energy into (and clearly we’re not alone, welcome additional apps to help you manage your usage). But as a business owner and one who despite my best efforts, put too many eggs in the old Instagram basket, this weight has felt unmanageable.

10 Ways to Make Parenting Less Boring

April 1, 2019

Zack and I talked about an article we read on one of our more recent episodes of Mom and Dad Made a Podcast about how sometimes, parenting is just boring. It’s a truth a lot of us dance around admitting, but you certainly aren’t alone if you’re not filled with joy from start to finish each and every time you play legos, line up seventy-five cars or complete a puzzle with your kids. I’m not saying it’s never enjoyable, but I am saying it can be boring to play with your kids. And I’m also saying that that’s okay. I believe boredom is important for both kids and adults alike, but I also believe that there are ways you can make your days at home a little less mind numbing.

Five Morning Sickness Hacks That Worked for Me

March 28, 2019

Now that I’m settling into the second trimester I am happy to report that my morning sickness has almost completely subsided. That being said my first trimester was rough. I experienced all day nausea, and toward the end of the first trimester and even into my second trimester I experienced some vomiting. It has been essential (even still) that I eat as soon as I wake up. In the first couple months it was also crucial that I ate lots of small snacks throughout the day rather than large meals.

What To Do in NYC with Kids: The New York Transit Museum

March 25, 2019

I am beyond excited to start this series for a number of reasons. First and foremost we love our city and sharing our favorite things to do here, especially with Owen. I realize New York City can seem really intimidating to live in or even visit with kids, but it doesn’t have to be. Over the past three years we have truly found some gems that make this city so much more approachable with little ones that I’ve been dying to share with you all. The second and kind of silly reason is, these pieces are so fun and natural for us to shoot. They give us a reason to get out of our usual routine and soak up what we love about our home, and most importantly, what our kiddo loves about our home!
