We actually celebrated Thanksgiving twice this year – once with each family! My in-laws hosted the weekend before Thanksgiving, which was a good test run on how L would eat. I whipped up a batch of sweet potatoes with cinnamon and almond milk for him and sautéed some green beans with garlic and mushrooms and… Continue reading Baby’s First Thanksgiving
This past weekend, we decided to go to the North Carolina zoo. We hoped we’d get to see everything but were realistic in our planning, knowing that the chances of an 8 month old sitting through 5 miles of walking over 4+ hours wasn’t likely. We took our umbrella stroller because it would be lighter… Continue reading First Zoo Visit with Baby!

Traveling was tougher than I thought it would be but there were no major issues. My feet were a little swollen once I got… Continue reading 25 week bumpdate!
