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...

My Take on Lactation Cookies
After I had a baby, Pinterest started showing me recipes for lactation cookies. I was intrigued. I’ll admit it: They had me at cookies. Well, it turns out that lactation cookies are just regular cookies with a few extra ingredients that may also help nursin...

First Family Vacation: Carmel, California
In early August, we took our first vacation as a family of three. Since this was our maiden voyage with the baby, we kept it somewhat local, making an easy drive about two hours south to beautiful Carmel. We stayed at Carmel Valley Ranch , an expansive prop...

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...

Mother-Son Style: Geometric Prints
Before I found out we were having a boy, I’d been dreaming about sugar and spice and everything nice, including the clothes. Oh, the fun I would have dressing my mini me! She and I would master the adorable art of mommy-and-me outfits! So when the doctor sa...

My Favorite Nursing Cover
The biggest shock to me as a new mom was what a game-changer nursing is. Everything from my schedule to my shirts suddenly revolved around my baby’s appetite. At first, I stayed behind closed doors whenever my baby might be hungry. Although I was more comfo...

Clean Beauty: Summer Favorites
During my pregnancy, I made a huge effort to baby-proof my beauty routine by cutting out some controversial ingredients (more on that here ). I wasn’t sure if I would keep up a cleaner approach to cosmetics post-pregnancy, but I actually find it just as imp...
