• Olivia Ronnie: 5 Months

    HOW is it possible that I am already typing this post? Next month, Olivia will be 6 months old and we will be halfway to her first birthday. I’m always pretty future-focused but right now I would be fine with time standing still a little longer. top left photo by Anne Casey Photography Size: Olivia is mainly wearing size 3-6 clothes, almost out of size 2 diapers and her chubby little feet don’t fit into several shoes I had for her. Eating: Breastfeeding like a champ! We’re starting solids next month when she is 6 months and I am excited to see how she likes it. We’re going to try…

  • Showering New Parents: The Perfect Baby Gift

    This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GetJohnsonsBaby #ChooseGentle #CollectiveBias #Ad Even though a little fear set in before we arrived on this journey of parenthood, I absolutely love this season of life and I couldn’t be more excited to have so many friends along for the ride. We’re thankfully sandwiched in between some of our closest friends with having a baby, which means we’re able to experience some things after others have lived it and also watch others have their moment after we do. It’s been fairly emotional for me to see our friends become parents now that we…

  • Olivia Ronnie: 3 Months

    Something weird is happening with my blog. Every month from the 25th until the 1st, it’s down because of bandwidth. I don’t have the time to find a solution so from now on I am getting all my posts finished before the 25th…except in this case, this should have went live on August 28th and I forgot…whoops! The saying that the nights are long and the years are short is really true! I can’t believe how quickly we reached 3 months. It feels like Olivia has been in our lives forever but also for such a short amount of time. Since I didn’t do a 2 month update (#momfail) these…

  • My Favorite Instagram Shops For Baby

    I am on my phone all of the time, especially during middle of the night feedings. There isn’t much more to do when you have one hand, a baby on your lap and no light besides the dim nightlight. So how do I pass the time? SHOPPING (or window shopping at least)! I have found some amazing Instagram shops and I’m really excited to share them all today! There are countless shops out there these days, but these five are by far my favorites. I love the brand behind the photos and products and supporting these families is so much better than a random product from Target (even though we…

  • 101 in 1001 FINAL Update!

    I can’t believe it has already been 1001 days since making my 101 in 1001 list! It’s been a lot of fun not only checking things off but seeing how things have changed in the last 2+ years. I love having a list to go off of that is goals for various facets of life, but also to keep track of how my life is going. I updated my final list below, and I would love to know if you finished off your list as well! I am clearly been awful with blogging and don’t have much time to read others blogs lately, so let me know in the comments…

  • Newborn Essentials | Must Have Newborn Items

    Creating our baby registry was by far the most overwhelming experience during my pregnancy. How do you know what you will need or what is just a gimmick? What if your baby doesn’t like something and you need to try something else? We wanted to be over-prepared instead of under-prepared because Amazon in 1-hour doesn’t work in our neighborhood quite yet 😉 These items are the can’t-live-withouts, the must have newborn items for our first 6 weeks of Olivia’s life. Some of these things may not work for your baby, but they were all essential to keeping our sanity. Baby Susher– we ended up buying this 2 weeks into newborn living…
