16 Month Baby Update

Hi friends! It has been ages since I did a Riese update - apparently my last one was the 1 year update! Whoa. Now that she's 16 months old as of this week I thought I'd pop in today to share how things are going over here in toddler-land.

Florida Vacation Recap

Last week, Matt and I took Riese on a family vacation - our first big trip as a family of 3! We hadn't done any air travel with Riese yet and decided it was time to get brave and go for it. :) We spent a couple days researching (aka Googling "best vacation spots with one year old"), and decided we wanted to go somewhere warm and beachy, but stay in Continue Reading …

Baby-Approved Banana Egg Pancake

Thank you to the Egg Nutrition Center for sponsoring this post. If Riese could talk, and you asked her what her favorite food was, she would most definitely answer: "banana egg pancake!"

Batch Cooking + Baby Play Date

Riese and I had a fun adventure on Wednesday: a baby play date that also involved batch cooking for the week! I mentioned last week that I made a new mom friend, Anina Belle, at baby music class. She loves cooking and also has a blog, and over lunch last week we came up with the idea to do a fun cooking session together! It would be a Continue Reading …

10 Month Baby Update

Riese turned 10 months old on Monday! She is looking like such a big girl these days - it's weird that she is now much closer to a toddler than she is to a newborn. I say this all the time, but, ahhhh, cue the tears - my little baby is growing up! (I know, I know, wait until she's off to college, you say...) She loves knocking down blocks now so Continue Reading …
