Mom Monday {7 months!}

0comments

Mommy tales:  I cannot believe Greyson is already 7 months old! How did we get here so fas?  We introduced solid foods at 6 months. After a rocky start she took to most everything I gave her. Until about a week ago when she decided she didn’t really want to eat solid foods at all. Come to find out her bottom 4 teeth are all coming in at once. The teething pain really kicked in last night. She cried for close to 2 hours while trying to get her to go to sleep. I finally tried massaging her gums with my finger (something I found while frantically googling “how to soothe a teething baby”) I am not sure if she was just exhausted by that time or if it really did the trick but she fell asleep shortly afterward. She woke up again in the middle of the night crying but put herself back to sleep a bit after. Overall though Greyson is such a happy baby. Constantly smiling and bringing joy wherever she goes. So grateful for this little one. Happy Mom Monday friends!

Friday Fun {Piper Grey Life}

0comments

Well I am just getting back in the swing of things, returning from 3 months of maternity leave. There are such mixed feelings about going back to work especially as a business owner, since Wiley Valentine is my other baby. But most of all I am super grateful to have the flexibility to work in the office some days, at home others, and bring Greyson with me when I am in the office. As I flood my camera with photos of my two princesses, as well as healthy recipes and all things kids and family, I decided to start a new instagram account, PiperGreyLife, for those that wanted a bit more of that. You can follow along here.

Mom Monday {Welcome Greyson Sam}

Hello my friends! Sorry for my absence. My little bundle of joy arrived 6 days early, and it’s a girl! I couldn’t believe it as I was so sure I was having a boy the entire pregnancy. Piper is beyond excited to have a little sister. We named her Greyson Sam, and we are smitten. Here are a few shots from our newborn shoot with the amazing Andrea Patricia Photography.

Mom Monday {Big Sister}

0comments

As we prepare for our little arrival, I have received lots of different ideas from parents on how to introduce Piper to her little brother or sister, and how to make the process easy and fun for her. I think we are at an advantage in terms of Piper’s age (5 years). I think Piper is at a great age to welcome her little baby with open arms. Now that said, I am definitely expecting some bumps in the road, and would love to know your advice as mothers. What did you guys do to help ease the transition?

Mom Monday {We’re Growing…}

Soooo…it’s finally time I let the cat out of the bag…I am expecting!! I am so beyond excited for our growing family and for Piper to become a big sister! After quite a journey it’s hard to believe we are finally here, or half way there to be exact. To answer your question, we don’t know what we are having and we are keeping it a surprise like we did with Piper. It was actually not that hard to wait with Piper, but with our second this seems to be quite a bit more challenging. Any of you wait to find out the sex? I have to admit I do love those gender reveal parties…but no, staying strong…we will just have to wait to find out.
