Annabelle’s First Boat Ride

Hey, hey! How is everyone? Did you have a good weekend? Ours was a mix of sun and rain for the most part, but that’s ok. Friday night we had our good friend who lives in New York City stop over, Saturday Aaron headed out for the Pen’s game while I stayed behind, and Sunday was spent all day glued to the blog. I’m working hard on categorizing posts and making sure things are ready. Of course we’ve run into {Read More}

Annabelle: 7 Months

Another month has gone by and I find myself wondering how that’s possible! I love this girl more than anything and treasure the time I do spend with her. This past month has been my favorite (I probably say that every month, though…) so let’s take a look! She is in 6-9 month clothing, and in some 3-6 month things. It’s more winter clothes and long sleeves that she is in 3-6 because her 6-9 doesn’t really have those! Likes: {Read More}

Tips for Flying with an Infant

We flew from Pittsburgh to Houston and back a few weeks ago, with my (then) 5 month old. The biggest thing I can tell you is to start making lists and keep them handy for everything you think of! Here are some other tips for flying with an infant that worked for us: Clear out your diaper bag and only pack what you need for the flight. We had toys, a few diapers, two burp clothes, 2 bibs, formula, and {Read More}

Annabelle: 6 Months

6 months. A half year. I cannot believe it. Aaron and I realized she was going to be 6 months the weekend before and we both got a little sad! I can’t believe she’s been with us this long, but can’t remember life without her. I was trying to remember pregnancy the other day when talking to a friend and it seems like so far away! Stats: Height: 26 1/4 in Weight: 18 lb 6 oz Head: 43 cm She {Read More}

I’m Done Breastfeeding

This is a sensitive topic to many, so please know that I took all things into consideration.  When we found out Annabelle had reflux, there are a million things out there on how to help it. From holding baby upright after feeding for 30 minutes, to propping up the crib, cutting things out of diet, etc. I tried all of those. I hated seeing Annabelle in pain and knowing she was getting worse and not better was terrible for me. {Read More}

March Fitness Goals Check in

I cannot believe March is just about over. Only a few days and we’re already into April! I am really hoping that winter is gone and we have moved into spring. I know snow can come in April, but I won’t complain if we skip right on into the nice weather! Since it is the end of the month, I thought it’d be a great time to check in with the fitness goals I set for March. March Fitness Goals March {Read More}

St. Patrick’s Day Pictures

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Every holiday is a good holiday to dress up and get pictures taken. I wanted to pop in real quick and just share a few I took of Annabelle for the holiday!

Annabelle: 5 Months

Back again for a 5 month baby girl update! Time is flying by! She doesn’t go back for her next appointment until 6 months so I don’t know her measurements. She wears size 2 diapers and 3-6 clothes/ 6 month clothes! Her sleepers are getting tight in the toes, though. I swear every time I wash her clothes, they shrink even more! Eating: She eats every 3-4 hours. She gets 4 oz in a bottle when I’m at work, and {Read More}
