4 baby/toddler purchases I’m so glad we made

August 17, 2015

If you have children, I don’t have to tell you that babies nowadays require SO. MUCH. STUFF.  I chronicled the items that were my saving grace the first three months of motherhood in a post here and there have been many, many purchases since that I’ve loved, but the things that have made the biggest…

an art print every little girl needs on her wall

July 22, 2015

I know you guys are probably over all the art posts (and if you follow me on Instagram, the pictures of Lydia’s gallery wall), but I just couldn’t resist telling you all about this little gem I picked up for her a few months ago!  I just had to have it, not only because the…

being present with my baby girl

May 28, 2015

I’ve been really bad about blogging lately but it hasn’t been for lack of subject matter because anyone who knows me, knows I can ALWAYS find something to talk about! I’ve been having a bit of a tough time trying to juggle everything lately – being a momma, working part time and holding down the…

April 22, 2015

If you’ve been following along here for a while now, you know that Lydia’s nursery is my favorite space in our house; it’s so hard to pick one favorite thing in her room because I love everything so much, but I have to say, the gallery wall was the one thing that finally made it…

It’s safe to say that Lydia’s nursery is, hands down, my favorite room in our house.  It gets the most light, is so bright and happy and in the evening when we’re reading books and winding down, her coral ceiling glows.  We spend a lot of time in here reading and playing (and picking out…

chic toy storage

February 10, 2015

For someone with MAJOR OCD and overall anal retentiveness when it comes to organization and order, it goes without saying that some things required some major adjustments the moment Lydia came into our lives. Now that baby girl is older, I’m facing a different set of challenges, namely, trying to corral the myriad books, puzzles,…

January 5, 2015

Happy New Year!  I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and are off to a great start in 2015!  Christmas for us this year was MAGICAL.  Even though Lydia is too young to remember any of it, we will never forget the look on her face when we turned the tree lights on for…

lydia’s turning 1!

December 17, 2014

In less than two weeks, my baby girl will turn ONE.  How that happened so fast, I do not know, but I try hard not to think about it as just the thought of the impending day reduces me to a blubbering mess.  Please tell me that has happened to you, too? My entire family…

loving lately for lydia: zara baby

December 4, 2014

One of the million and one fun parts of having a baby girl is that momma gets to play dress up all day long!  Having the first grandchild on my side, and a girl at that, has resulted in Lydia having a wardrobe and shoe collection that rivals my own.  If you follow me on…

lydia’s nursery

November 19, 2014

Well, friends, I think it’s finally time I got my bum in gear and posted pictures of baby girl’s nursery!  Since Lydia’s ten months old now, I figured I’d better post pictures of it before it’s time to change it into a big girl space.  To be fair, the nursery was 99% complete before she…
