Ada’s Munchkin Meals – 15 Months

Hello, there! Ada and I are back for another Munchkin Meals hosted by Brittany at a Healthy Slice of Life. The deets on our family: ¬†Ada is now 15 months old, she breastfeeds about 4 times each day, we’re a vegetarian family, and we’ve taken a baby led weaning approach to solid food. Before I … Continue reading

Ada’s Munchkin Meals – 13 Months

HOLY TEETHING, BATMAN. … Before I get into it, let me say thanks to Brittany at A Healthy Slice of Life for hosting another Munchkin Meals. We’ve been MIA for the past few months due to many reasons, so it’s nice to be back and stretch our Munchkin Meals legs. If you’re hanging around for … Continue reading

Ada’s Sensory Table

Ada’s Sensory Table

As I had mentioned before, for Ada’s first birthday Tom and I created a sensory table for her. It was a pretty easy DIY job, and Ada’s enjoyed it so far. Since spring was (theoretically) around the corner (this is Minnesota after all), we planned on keeping the sensory table outside on our covered balcony … Continue reading

Breastfeeding is a Man’s Job (Sorta)

Breastfeeding is a Man’s Job (Sorta)

Ada and I have a successful breastfeeding relationship (that…fingers crossed…will last until at least age 2). It was probably around 3 months when breastfeeding became more predictable and, as a result, awesome. In the US, breastfeeding images, support, and articles focus on the mother and baby, and rightfully so — we ARE the main event. … Continue reading

A Wedding Weekend

A Wedding Weekend

My sister Bridget got married this past Saturday in a beautiful Catholic ceremony and a reception at the glamorous Calhoun Beach Club. I was my sister’s matron of honor, Tom was the best man to our now-brother-in-law Mike, and Ada got to be just cute. Surprisingly, she survived until about 9:30 at night and crashed … Continue reading

Ada’s 1st Birthday

Ada’s 1st Birthday

On Monday, Ada turned 1! We held a big shindig the day before her birthday, and I promise to post all the details of her birthday bash soon (waiting on some photos). In the mean time, I thought I’d write about what we did on the actual day of her birthday and what we gave … Continue reading

Ada’s Day – 11 Months

Ada’s Day – 11 Months

Lot’s of radio silence around here lately. With a trip to Mexico for a friend’s wedding, contract work deadlines looming, not to mention some big events coming up (Ada’s 1st birthday, sister’s wedding, visit from in-laws), things are pretty hectic around here. It’s hard to believe Ada is less than two weeks away from turning … Continue reading

Secondhand Saturday

Secondhand Saturday

Although I love thrift shopping for furniture and housewares (it’s actually a sickness), I’ve never been one to thrift for clothing. Except for that one phase in high school where I sought the most ironic t-shirts possible, I’ve never had the patience to sift through a bunch of clothes, many of which haven’t been washed. … Continue reading

Ada’s Munchkin Meals – 10 Months

Ada and I are back for another Munchkin Meals, hosted by Brittany at A Healthy Slice of Life! If it’s your first time checking out what Miss Ada eats, I’ll let you know that we’ve taken a baby led weaning approach with her and that we are a vegetarian family. This month, Ada is 10 … Continue reading

Ada’s Day – 9 Months

Ada’s Day – 9 Months

Yeesh — Ada turns 10 months in a couple of days (!) so it was high time I wrote about her day at 9 months. Lots has changed since I last wrote about her day. Ada is now crawling at high speeds and pulling up on her knees anywhere. Her curiosity has grown exponentially, as … Continue reading
