Connor, Two Month Newborn Update

I’m sharing a two month update for Connor partially for myself and for others who might have a baby younger and wondering, what’s next? Maybe you have a baby the same age and curious if you’re getting more sleep than I am! While every child is different and there is no normal, I love being able […]

Boston Fitness Studios with Childcare and Classes for Moms & Babies

Finding childcare in Boston at a gym has gotten so much easier since I had Tommy. No longer are moms only able to workout at the big gyms but plenty of fitness studios also offer babysitting at select times. I wrote a post 2 years ago on this topic and realized it needed a serious […]

How Much Exercise Do You Really Need?

As a former gym rat who thought I’d get “so skinny” if I ever ran a marathon, I can tell you that the more time you workout does not directly impact how much you weigh or how strong you get. It’s about training smart. This should come as a relief if you are reading this postpartum or […]

20-minute End of Summer Family Friendly Dinner Idea

Nutrition is a science and our beliefs are constantly being challenged when new studies are published. Everyone is doing the best that they can with the information they are given. I don’t buy all organic food but I do try to buy organic when it comes to meat and dairy products. When it comes to […]

How much weight I have to lose isn’t weighing me down

It’s funny how things change in ways you never expected. I fully expected to be overwhelmed with two children but I’m shocked to feel rather stress free. Everything is a phase, I know that now. While both kids may be crying at times, Connor won’t remember and Tommy likely won’t either. One way I usually […]

I regretted that I didn’t document my labor and delivery with Tommy so this time around, I didn’t care how unpretty I felt, I shot video using my phone when I could. Here is my labor and delivery vlog… don’t worry, this isn’t a TMI post so if you don’t want to see a baby coming out, […]

Baby Safety: TurnAfter2 Campaign

As a social media mom, there are many aspects of my life that I share, but I am always very cautious to avoid being the target of any “mommy shaming.” Anything car seat related is always a hot button issue. Is the baby buckled in the right way? Is the seat secure? Is the child […]

Back To School Shopping Favorites 2018

For the first time ever, I’m looking forward to going “back to school!” Maybe it’s because I finally have a child old enough to go back to school. Tommy will be going to pre-school 3 days a week from 8:30-1pm and I am pretty excited although it is 90 minutes shorter and 10 minutes further […]

Postpartum Update: Nursing, Hormones, Tommy, & more

It’s been over a week since we became a family of four. I loved writing my birth story so I can remember it when Connor is older. I wanted to share a little today in regards to my own postpartum recovery, how Tommy is doing as a big brother and how we’re adjusting. Postpartum Life […]

My Postpartum Fitness Plan – My Time To Fly Again Is Coming

Sponsored by Zappos. I miss running. When I found out I was pregnant in October, I chose to stop because I didn’t enjoy feeling like I had to pee every 5 minutes. I was also pretty into the Peloton bike at the time. Fast forward to my third trimester when the warm weather arrived and […]
