Our first Christmas as a family of 3.

Last Christmas, we surprised our family with holiday cards announcing our pregnancy. It was my favorite holiday memory sharing our secret with those closest to us, but actually holding our little girl really takes the cake for best holiday memory.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I've been keeping a journal to Hen, because that's what I do. I write everything down. It feels good to get those words out so they don't threaten to drown me with their weight. I wrote her this little entry for her first Thanksgiving.

Hen's Birth Story

During our prenatal classes, our teacher wanted us to create a birth plan. I was and am anti birth plan. I don't believe in making plans for things I can't control. It simply makes me anxious and sets expectations. When I have expectations, the type A in me springs forward. My birth plan was simply this, "Only Quinn is allowed in the room. Don't tell me to calm down."

My birth plan came true! I realized after having a baby that Hen's birth story was a battle scar and one I'm so proud to wear. While I stand by not having a birth plan - I want to share the story.

Baby Shower Time!

Hello blog viewers! My name is Shelby and I'm Courtney’s little sister. If you didn’t already know, Courtney is pregnant with her first child, Henley Reese. Since Courtney is normally the one throwing parties for our families it seemed a little wrong for her to be the one to throw her own baby shower…so that’s where I came in.

Baby B Photos

Last weekend my sister took photos of the bump. I love how they turned out; it's hard to believe this is my sister's second gig ever!

Juice it up!

My cravings all seem to be suspiciously falling onto my fave foods list: spaghetti, pizza, pb&j, + ice cream.  I've also been craving fresh juice.  BUT non-pasteurized juices are no-gos for mommas to be.  Luckily I discovered Bundle Organics.  They are a juice company that's pasteurized + delivers.  I ordered a 6 bottle starter mix with 3 juice options.  This is now a must have in my diet.  I don't even have a favorite juice, because all 3 are yummy even the kale based one.

Western Family Day!

When I interviewed for my role at Square Root one of the questions was "How will you engage all the employees with kids at events?" - Me: "Family day!". I made good on that promise last week! My first Square Root family day was a success! I blame pregnancy brain + swollen ankles for the lack of photos

When tackling a registry I wanted to keep my registries to 1-2, but wanted to get all the adorableness from Etsy, practicality of Amazon, and ability to register for Land of Nod, Ikea etc.  Enter Babylist!  You can add items from anywhere + you can add favors like home cooked meals!  Both mobile and desktop versions are easy to use and install.  It's a must for any mommas to be that want something more than the traditional garb.  Here's a peek at my Babylist + I have one at Buy Buy Baby.
