yes! She knows that her "baby sister" is in there and can say the new baby's name which is just the cutest. No real concept that the baby is coming to live with us (obviously) but sort of gets that the baby is in my tummy. If my shirt rides up, she'll pull it down because the baby is "sleeping"

Safe to say that pregnancy the second time around is a different thing. First time around I could tell you the month and day count without a second thought. I knew what size fruit the baby was. I "needed" a... Continue reading

FRI-YAY! As mentioned last week, it was Camp Mama at our house with daycare closed. I realize how lucky I am to have a work schedule that's flexible and thanks to some prep work and emails at nap time (which... Continue reading

Over the years I have shared many a post about "green skincare." (The most recent was March 2014.) I've spent the last four years intentionally and unintentionally narrowing down the amount of product I use on my skin. Originally this... Continue reading

photo of Ellerie by Tara Whitney The plus side of the second kiddo is that you're over all the "extras." There is a better understanding of needs vs. frills. I bought super bizarre things for Ellerie (like so many sets... Continue reading

Everything I do with Ellerie these days (besides our book reading routine or trips to the park) feels about five minutes long. Her attention span is growing, but...she's two. I wanted to share a cute and simple project we made... Continue reading

around here we are still doing Whole30. Yesterday was day 10 and so far it's been good. Mostly it just feels like a challenge in meal planning. Which, for me, is really working out well. I don't know how I... Continue reading

thank you! Good question - I love the chair, but because we have the couch, it's not my go to sitting in chair. I can't say for sure that it would be the best place to curl up for hours. I'd hate to steer you wrong without enough evidence! :)

I think I've read three life changing books. I don't use that concept lightly. Harry Potter is great, but it didn't "change my life". Born to Run inspired me tremendously when I was running a lot but it doesn't effect... Continue reading
