Vacationing with a Babe

Baby Travel

Our trip to Key West was not only fun, but actually relaxing.  This got me thinking about what made this Florida trip so much better than the last Florida trip when Emerson was 6 months old. Below are a couple of thoughts on what made our vacation enjoyable with an energetic 15-month-old in tow. -I used to have the mentality that accommodations are not that important because I didn’t spend much time in the room.  Now? Accommodations are the most…

The Best Baby Stuff

Baby Shopping

Now that I’m a year+ into this whole baby thing, I wanted to compile a list of the gear that we can’t live without. Uppababy Cruz stroller – I’ve tried the Nuna Tavo, Maclaren umbrellas, and BOB (which I love for running) and nothing beats the features and maneuverability of the Cruz. Back when I was loading it in and out of the car, it was super easy to fold, relatively light weight, and so easy to use with the…

Day in the Life: 15 Months

Baby Brooklyn Life

When did Emerson become a toddler?  We’re finally starting to get into a rhythm.  Here’s a peek into our new life in Brooklyn: 7:25 – I wake up when Matt gets in the shower and rejoice that we’re in the 7’s.  Emerson has been waking up at 6 the past two weeks, and I’m so thankful for the extra sleep. A few minutes later, I hear Em and Matt goes to get her while I make tea and peanut butter-ize…

Day in the Life: 11 months

Baby Life

It’s been a while since I wrote a day in the life post and life is different now! My 4 month post was from a stay-at-home day, so I thought I’d write this post based on a work day. 5:30 – Matt is leaving for the airport. I’m not sure if it was a coincidence or a noise he made, but I hear Emerson wake up. Even though she’s not eating much breast milk these days, she still wakes up…

9 Month Update

Baby

It’s time for another update, aw this girl and been out in the world as long as she was growing in the womb! The most exciting thing is that Emerson started crawling just before her 9 month birthday! She’s moving all over the house and putting everything in her mouth. I don’t know how she can spot a small speck of dirt from across the room, but she’s been eating hairs, old crumbs, leaves, and other disgusting things that end…

6 Month Update

Baby The Working World

Hi Friends, How’s it going? Here’s our 6 month update: We had some major regression this month – both with falling asleep for naps and staying asleep at night. The good news is, we’ve been doing some sleep training to help with the wake-ups, and Emerson has slept through the night (well, until 5am) a few nights in a row this week. While this is definitely something to celebrate, she did this back at 3 months, so it only feels…

Day in the Life: 4 Months

Baby Life

Hello! How about a day in the life post? My non-work days look a lot different than they used to…but I love it. It’s funny how I remember playing house and playing with dolls when I was little, and this is always how I imagined my adult life. Emerson pretty consistently cries or wakes up around 5:30 or 6, but if I feed her or bring her in bed with me, I can usually get her to sleep until about…

RSV & NYE

Baby Life Ramblings

Hi friends. I know it’s been a while! We had a fabulous Christmas down in Austin with our families, and a nice stay-cation once we got back. Then Emerson came down with a cold that got worse, and we had to spend some time in the hospital. It was just a common respiratory virus (RSV), but apparently it can be dangerous in little lungs and little noses. We were a bit surprised to be admitted to the hospital, and we…

Visitors

Baby Life

We had a fun week of visitors last week – Matt’s sister was in town for work and got to meet Emerson for the first time, and my mom came back to visit towards the end of the week. We took Matt’s sister, Chelsea, out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants – HG Supply. We always enjoy the bowls there, and I had my first cocktail since giving birth! Emmie loves to sleep in the Solly wrap, and…
