Pieces you can wear during and post pregnancy

During pregnancy, the thought of wearing maternity clothing sounded awful. Of course I wore maternity jeans towards the end (these were my favorites) but when it came to dresses and tops, I tried so hard to find things I could wear during pregnancy and also after. My logic was if I was going to have to spend money on clothing for the short time I was pregnant, that I at least wanted to be able to wear the pieces after I had the baby!...

Baby Ralph’s New,New Schedule

This is my third baby Ralph schedule update and I can honestly say that this schedule is my favorite. I first shared his schedule back in October and then and updated version in the middle of January. We used his first schedule from birth – 5 1/2 months old, we then switched to this schedule and used it from 5 1/2 months – 7 1/2 months and then right around the 7 month mark, Ralph changed his schedule (we knew this would happen) to the one below....

A few weeks ago we took baby Ralph on his third trip. Prior to his trip to Los Angeles, we took him to Miami (he was 6 months old in Miami) but before that, the last time he had been on a plane was when he was just 7 1/2 weeks old. After his very first trip, I did a full blog post on tips for traveling with a new baby (you can read it here) but after the last trip, I got lots of questions for tips and tricks!...

Baby Ralph’s NEW Schedule

At the end of October I posted Baby Ralph’s schedule that we had been using since day 1 (you can read it here). While this schedule was literally INCREDIBLE when we hit mid December (a little over 5 months), Ralph was just not having ‘bed time’ anymore. He would still keep to his schedule during the day but once that clock struck 7 pm and it was time for his last bottle he was not interested in eating but all of the sudden became quite the social butterfly....
