When you have the same sex child for number two, you do not get another shower or a sprinkle. You do however get the chance to buy the things yourself that you wish you had registered for the first time. For me, this meant placing a focus on convenience and sleep. Before Tommy, we were […]

Pregnancy Update: Week 39 | Baby #2

Happy early 4th of July! I took off last week to spend some quality time with Tommy and we 100% enjoyed it. Now that Dad has joined us in Cape Cod, I am of course the second choice but I am OK with that because it meant I got to sleep in today. I wanted […]

1st Time Mom vs 2nd Time Mom VIDEO

At a prenatal yoga class, a first time mom asked me if it was easier the second time around. Bahahahaha… “What? No! Now, you have a toddler to keep up you on your toes when you used to be able to sit back and relax!” There are many differences between my pregnancies as I’ve alluded […]

My Ultimate Baby Registry Guide 2018

Registering for your first baby is overwhelming. I kept asking people for suggestions but tried to be a minimalist, and ended up with a few hits but ultimately, I returned a few things and then bought things with my store credit as I learned what kind of baby Tommy was and what I truly needed. This was […]

Tommy Update | This is Two

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Tommy update and I’ve been getting a ton of questions so I thought I’d share a little update on the things you guys are interested in. Huge disclaimer: I am a first time mom. I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m just doing the best I can. This […]

How My Obsession With Fitness Has Evolved Since Becoming a Mom

Today’s post is sponsored by Zappos. At 29 weeks pregnant with Tommy, I ran a half marathon in San Francisco. Now at 29 weeks again, I don’t know how I did it. I know why, but I don’t know how my body was able to do it. They say you can continue doing whatever you’ve been doing […]

Pregnancy Update: 24 Weeks

Panic has begun to sink in at 24 weeks pregnant. My last update was a month ago at 20 weeks and while I still feel like not much has changed, a lot has. Baby Baby is the size of an eggplant which feels larger than I am. I guess it depends what kind of eggplant […]

Gender Reveal Baby #2…

While some people choose to wait 10 months to find out the sex of their baby, I’ve always known that I am too impatient to be one of them. Luckily, Nick is too. I wanted to be able to plan when it came to Tommy. I also can’t stand surprises unless I know they are […]

The Perils of Social Media While Being Pregnant

Second time around, I have been much less stressed about the baby being safe and healthy. I’m drinking coffee, I’m forgetting to take my prenatal vitamins and I’m not as paranoid about waking up in the middle of the night if I’m sleeping on my back. However, I haven’t been totally relaxed. How can I […]

Celebrating Tommy’s 2nd Birthday

Tommy turned two on Friday and unlike last year, I didn’t take a million pictures. I barely captured it at all. Who am I because I’m certainly not a blogger?! We started his birthday with a trip to the doctor for his 2 year check up because I am a terrible mother and didn’t realize […]
