Our Trip to Hood River, Oregon
We recently returned from a trip to Hood River, Oregon. Now that we’re a family of three, it’s funny to see how much our criteria for evaluating travel destinations has changed. While good food and beautiful scenery are still high on our list of priorities,...

A Year
In just a week, our baby is going to turn one. How has it been almost a year already? I’m somewhat at a loss for words, so instead of a sappy essay on motherhood (which I’m sure I’ll write later), here are my favorite pictures from Will’s first year. Also, ...

In Her Shoes: Christine Tang, Founder of Kira Kids
If you follow fashion for the onesie-wearing set, then you’ve certainly seen Kira Kids. Known for clothes that are at once playful and cool (think rompers with rollerskating unicorns), the line for little ones is often spotted on celebrity tots like Beau (o...

Oh, The Places You’ll Pump
My husband and I recently went on our first trip sans baby—two nights plus one red-eye for a wedding on the other coast. Maybe it’s because I’ve been a non-mom for way longer than my baby has been on this earth, but I found it surprisingly easy to slip into...

Blurry But Merry
On Christmas, my husband made fun of me for posting the above photo on Instagram. He said it was blurry. I couldn’t disagree but said it was merry. Then, I realized that sort of summed up not only our Christmas but the majority of our year with a baby: blur...

Eight Months
It’s hard to believe that my baby boy is eight months old. This age is so fun. I want to remember all of the little details, from his bedtime babbling to his favorite books. I keep a one-line-a-day diary , but if I were craftier, I’d love to make those mont...

Will's First Birthday
Celebrating Will’s first birthday was all kinds of sweet. My main goal was to soak up the day with him and reflect on our first year as a family of three. Will’s birthday fell on a Thursday, so Nick and I took the day off from work. We decided it was time f...

Small Style: Eye of the Tiger
There are a lot of challenges that come with being a first-time parent and one of them is not spending ALL of my money on baby clothes. I mean, I have 18 years to fill my son’s college fund but possibly only a couple before he can voice opinions about his w...

A Man's POV: Lessons from Paternity Leave
In October, I returned to work after 12 weeks of paternity leave and I just can’t WAIT to be king. Oh, sorry, that’s Will’s favorite song. In less than three months, it overtook Faith Hill’s “Where are You Christmas” and Megadeth’s “Holy Wars” to officially...

Oh, What Fun
We’re getting ready for our first Christmas with a baby in the house. Based on his unfounded love for anything that crinkles, I think the unwrapping of presents on Christmas morning is going to blow his mind. Until then, we’ve been having fun going about ou...

Crawl So Hard (plus a discount!)
It’s official: I can no longer plop my baby down on a play mat and trust that he’ll still be there after I’ve grabbed my coffee. He recently mastered crawling and couldn’t be happier about it. He especially loves to abandon his designated play areas and plo...
