The bit of work I was doing significantly slowed, and then came to a stop for a while, and we’re supposed to be social distancing and staying home anyways. Since Mauricio works in the healthcare industry, his…

    Flying with a (not so) lap infant

    So we recently tackled a major travel journey with our almost 2 year old. We flew to Mexico. With Oliver. As a lap infant. Meaning he didn’t have his own seat on the plane, he was just on our laps. Just like it sounds right? We had done this once before with Oliver, when he was 3 months old. No…

    2019 Reflection. 2020 Goals.

    Road Trip/Lagoon

    Okay everyone. I know it’s been a long time since I’ve updated you all, but I’ve been busy soaking in the summer with my 1 year old! This summer was 100% different than last summer.

    Baby Led Weaning

    Oliver is 14 months old now, and he eats like a champ! We are pretty lucky with him in general, but eating has always been a breeze. Oliver was exclusively breastfed until he was 6 months old, then I started introducing foods, while still breastfeeding. When Oliver was about 9 months old, my milk supply dropped substantially and we started…
