Miss Emilia: 8 Month Update

Another month down! Can’t believe only 4 months until baby will be a year old. It’s going to fly by. Sleep – Wow this has been rough lately. I’m not sure what’s going on with baby but she went back to 2 night feedings most nights when we were down to 1 and the last two nights she’s been up for …

Why Jesus?

For weeks now I’ve been wanting to write a post about why I decided to become vegan and why we are raising our kiddos that way. I’ve been writing and rewriting this post in my head over and over. But while I was doing that one night, trying to fall asleep and not succeeding, I realized I’ve never written anything …

What I Ate Today – Mostly Vegan

As I’ve talked about in a few posts now, I decided to start eating vegan about 2 months ago. It honestly hasn’t been as difficult as I originally thought. Not to say I haven’t had dreams about devouring plates of chicken…but overall I’ve been able to come up with meals that have been satisfying and tasty. I have a lot …

Miss Emilia – 4 Month Update

Miss Emilia is not a newborn anymore! Crazy to think that she’s turning into a baby and even looking back at her newborn photos, she looks so different already. She’s getting more fun every day and interacting with us and things around her so much. I’m looking forward to seeing how she grows and changes each month. Sleep – Well …

Miss Emilia – 3 Month Update

The last three months have been the most challenging, yet most rewarding three months of my life as a mom. Transitioning from one to two kids has been rough. There have been some really amazing, blessed days and some really hard, dark days. Of course, I am so grateful for Emilia, my sweet rainbow baby, but newborn babies are rough …

Remembering Our Loss

April 6 marked one year since we found out we were losing our pregnancy at 11 weeks. That was the first and last time I saw that baby on the ultrasound and will never forget that moment. The raw heartache I felt when I realized that my dreams and hopes for that pregnancy and baby were now gone. Even now …

What I Ate Today: Breastfeeding

The initial weeks of breastfeeding is the hungriest I’ve ever been in my life. I remember feeling the same way with Enzo and this time is no different. I always thought being pregnant would make me hungry, but nursing a tiny baby round the clock while recovering from birth makes me one hungry mama! Below is what I ate in …
