    Toddler Fall Lookbook 2017

    One of my favorite parts about Fall is the fashion!  Not only do I love to dress myself in the latest Fall trends, but I love to dress my little man in them as well!  I thought it would be fun to make a little lookbook full of some of my favorite fall clothing pieces for him, as well as my top places to shop!

    FALLing in Love

    To say that fall is my favorite season would be an understatement.  What’s not to love about fall?  I love the smell of the crisp air, comfy knit sweaters and knee high boots.  I love the beautiful changing leaves and pumpkin spice everything!  Here is a list of reasons why I love fall! 1.FASHION Fall fashion is my absolute favorite.  Over-sized knit sweaters paired with leggings is my go-to.  I also love myself a good flannel and a pair of boots.  Knee high socks are also a staple for me.  I just love the cozy feeling of fall clothing!  They are perfectly comfortable  for cozying up on the couch, but also transition…

    Life with a “refluxer”

    Before having your baby, everyone tries to prepare for the hardships to come.  The sleepless nights, endless feedings, lots of poopy diapers, and crying.  All babies cry, right?  I knew within the first few days of having Jackson that something wasn’t quite right. When I would feed Jackson, he would often gag on his milk.  When I would burp him,  he would make this strange noise and then start gasping for breath, and then immediately cry.   This wasn’t your typical “I’m hungry, tired, or fussy” type cry.  This was different.  My baby was in pain and I knew it.  Jackson would cry all day long, and the only comfort…

    Beautiful Mess

    Ladies…let’s get real about motherhood. I’m a first time mom, and on social media, I look like I have it all together. Reality: motherhood is a beautiful mess. Since birth, my son was diagnosed with acid reflux.  It’s so bad to the point where he has been on medication for it since he was 4 weeks old.  So, because of his painful reflux, he would never sleep, would cry constantly and needed to be held 24/7.  On top of all of that, I was dealing with postpartum anxiety.  I live over an hour away from family and was constantly calling my mother hyperventilating because my son wouldn’t stop crying and I…
