Here are a few other honest truths... To be… Continue Reading →

Eleanor and I have been on a baking kick lately. She asks to make muffins almost daily and immediately pushes her chair over to the counter so she's tall enough to lend a hand. It's been so much fun having some company in the kitchen, and having the extra baked goods around the house isn't [...]

You guys, I'm here to tell you that fall is the best! I spent all summer shielding baby Everly from the hot sun, but we're finally in my FAVORITE time of year with two little girls who absolutely LOVE playing outside!

two on the move

I already feel like so much has changed since I posted Everly's 6 month update! Kiddos at this age go through such big developmental leaps, that sometimes it's hard to keep up! Most notably, Everly is on the move! No, not crawling yet, but she can inch herself just about anywhere she wants to go. [...]

everly: 6 months


It's that time again! Little Miss Everly turned 6 months last week, and she's SO proud of the big girl she's becoming! Judging from how she tries to grab anything and everything off my plate, I thought she would be REALLY excited to eat solids, but so far she's more into getting to sit in [...]

When I put together my baby registry for Eleanor, I thought I had a fairly good idea of what products made the most sense for our family. I tried to make smart decisions, and overall, I was very happy with our baby gear. However, when I found out I was pregnant for the second time, [...]

Documenting my girls' lives is one of my favorite things to do. I take thousands of snapshots of my girls, but there's something special about having a professional photographer capture the moment. My friend and fellow Omaha blogger Ashley Nicole snapped some photos of us last week, and I'm in LOVE with how they turned [...]
