FRYday: Santa Barbara

By Emily. Hello! I writing this from Santa Barbara as a guest of our fam at  Zappos! We were one of their top performers this year and so we attended #CJU16 with them! Pretty cool! At the time I was the only one that could make during their dates and even though having an infant typically would get me a pass, I knew it was important, so here I am! Raleigh has been so good but man am I worn out! It’s not easy traveling solo with a baby. It’s also funny how certain cities and airlines people are just … Read more

mesa, vista, uppa!

By Emily. I know I mentioned earlier that I really took my time choosing and researching a stroller system this time around. After two kids I had a really good grasp on what I wanted, didn’t need, and wanted to try out. I chose the UPPAbaby Vista System and am actually obsessed with it. The first thing I knew I wanted to try was a bassinet. Anytime I saw a baby in theirs they always looked so peaceful and comfortable and I loved the idea of having that restful sleep be more of a portable and mobile option, too! I was … Read more

nursing notes

By Emily in partnership with ErgoBaby. I have spent a LOT of time nursing the last couple months and while I sometimes wish for longer arms to wrangle my mischievous older two (who now have realized I am partially immobile and can get away with a lot) I am loving the time I get to spend just Raleigh and me. Depending on how wakeful Raleigh is I either get some much need work done: shoot off a few emails, put up a social media post or take my “nursing notes.” Or if he’s awake: I honestly do nothing but stare at him. … Read more

city select SALE!

The City Select was the very first high end stroller that I purchased after Sunny was born. My friends and online reviews raved about it. And now, I’m the one preaching! This stroller is fantastic. I went with black, because I think it looks chic for a double stroller (which trust me, that’s HARD to find). I started with it as a double since both my boys were little. They LOVED that the seats could both face me as I pushed them. As they grew, they wanted to face each other. When the giggling and playing got to be too … Read more

potty training 101

Oh, potty training! Amongst ourselves it is in the top ranking for our least favorite tasks as parents. Keeping your cool and being a constant source of positive encouragement, while trying not to pull your hair out? Where is our Oscar? We teamed up with Lysol to brainstorm our best potty training tips. Our middle boys are all four so it wasn’t that long ago that we traversed this terrain, and to be honest we still deal with accidents at night on occasion, so we’re for sure not out of the woods! Potty training takes a long time, and sometimes … Read more

Meet a Small Fry: Aiden

So honored to have Michelle Gilbert, mother of Aiden here talking about Angelman’s Syndrome! Salt Lake City has a walk this next month check it out here:  Angelman Syndrome Foundation’s National Walk. Welcome, Michelle! My husband and I started a family in 1997 with the birth of my oldest son, Shawn. Working in Kansas City, I balanced my time between work and family. But when my youngest son, Aiden, was born in 2004, I had to put everything on hold due to his unexpected medical obstacles. During the first year of Aiden’s life, he was always sick and was frequently hospitalized … Read more

new baby favorites

By Emily. Now that I am about a month in with Raleigh – and hindsight as they say is 20/20 – I wanted to share the items that are actually saving my bacon on a day to day basis. It can be so different for every baby, and that is what I love about reading these types of posts! I think as parents we learn very quickly to adapt. It’s a survival method, right? We adapt so well that we often forget that certain aspects of taking care of a baby don’t need to be so hard. So many times … Read more
