Lily Mae: One Year

Today’s the day. My baby girl is ONE. I can’t believe how quickly this year has flown by! It doesn’t feel like a year has gone by. I feel like I JUST had her. I remember where I was so clearly one year ago, and now being here a year later feels just as surreal… Read more »


Lily Mae: 11 Months

Lily is on the move! It’s official: she’s crawling! Lily kicked off the month of July going from rolling to crawling. It was so special to witness it firsthand, and it just reaffirmed why I’m doing what I’m doing to be home with her. Since she is on the go nonstop, we’re gradually baby-proofing around… Read more »


Lily Mae: 10 Months

June was another busy month for Lily! Her two top teeth came in, so now she has a total of four teeth. She’s also added many more words to her vocabulary: Hi/bye. She’ll wave while saying these too, and it’s so cute! Wow Why. I always try to give her an explanation when she says… Read more »


Lily Mae: Nine Months

Wow, a lot happened for Lily this month! Not only did she go through a major growth spurt, but she had TWO of her bottom teeth come in AND she’s rolling! I’ve pretty much stopped putting her in any kind of baby container and letting her roam (and roll) free. This little girl is going… Read more »


Lily Mae: Eight Months

Another month of quarantine with this little chunk! It’s crazy to think that we’re living through a time that we’ll never forget but Lily will never remember.

Communication with our friends and family has relatively stayed the same, although it’s been hard for my parents who… Read more »


Lily Mae: Seven Months

Seven months AKA the month we were quarantined but to her it’s just like any other month. ๐Ÿ˜‚ No seriously, we’re quarantine rockstars because going anywhere with a baby is a huge thing, so I’ve embraced that delivery/order online life hardcore. Plus, I’m busy taking care of her and working on my business, so being… Read more »


Lily Mae: Six Months

How are we half a year already? My precious little girl is growing so fast! ๐Ÿ˜ญ I just boxed up all of her 3-6 months clothes because my child is a six-month-old trapped in the body of a nine-month-old. She’s rocking clothes 9-12 month clothes these days and is a whopping 25 lbs! Girlfriend is… Read more »

My Complete List of Baby Must-Haves

Who knew someone so small could need so many things? Not to mention there’s so much stuff you think you need that you end up not using and visa versa. At six months in, I can say with certainty that these are the items we’ve used and loved so far. If I could do my… Read more »
