Hello friends! It’s been absolutely too long. I miss blogging (and vlogging), but have somehow too easily put this on the backburner. I’ve allowed myself to get caught in the daily routine of having two young children, and all of my downtime is unashamedly avoiding nearly everything that requires thinking of real effort. But again, I miss this. I miss you guys. I miss writing … Continue reading Full hearts in Seattle…
From London to Seattle… let the adventure begin. Continue reading London- it’s not goodbye
I’ve been wanting to write this out for awhile now, but never knew exactly what to say. I’ll just start from the beginning… BACK STORY I grew up knowing that it was impractical to have an “unnecessary” amount of stuff. I moved [on average] every three years growing up… sometimes more often and sometimes less. I stayed in the same general city for a good ten … Continue reading our journey towards minimalism
As with my post on cloth diapering, this post is written due to popular demand. I’ve sent basically the same long message to many friends and acquaintances after they’ve followed my [and Harvey’s] journey from waking up countless time at night (yes! countless! some nights I lost count after 14) to sleeping 12-13 hours at night. From birth, Harvey would wake up on average every … Continue reading Gentle Methods: Baby Sleeping Through The Night!

I have also included a cheeky bonus item! —TOP FIVE NATURAL BABY PRODUCTS— 1. CJ’s Butter [nappy/diaper cream] I … Continue reading TOP 5 natural baby products
It seems like just yesterday our life was totally different and it was only us two (Tom + Andrea)… It’ so true when people say “your whole life is going to change when your baby is born”. Everything changes! OVERNIGHT! Some changes are very fun and easily adaptable while others have been a bit hard to adjust to. But of course, it goes without saying that everything … Continue reading Harvey’s (and mummy’s) 6 month update!
-In the Kitchen- I may just have one amazing husband, but my hubby has taken over some of the meal cooking ever since I got pregnant and now that we have a baby. My friend just got a George Foreman Grill and Griddle and said it was life-changing. If your hubby also likes to make you breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings, this grill & griddle will make … Continue reading Top 10 for Dads
-Baby Mocassins- Has anyone else fallen in the trap of baby shoes? I know, I know, they grow out of them in about thirty seconds, but their cuteness is overwhelming. I love soft newborn shoes. These mocassins by Freshly Picked have great reviews for their durability and are raved about for staying on the foot. They are quite expensive, especially because they will be outgrown quickly, … Continue reading My Wishlist- Top Ten for Harvey
