In the kitchen with model meals

In the kitchen with model meals

Have you ever been so hungry but you're like "ugh, I don't feel like preparing a huge meal" or "ugh, I haven't gone grocery shopping and we have nothing!" or "ugh, nothing I make tastes good!" 

Well I have. Pretty much every day. So what do I do? I end up eating junk, snacking on whatever I can find, or something going out to get something that's fast and easy.

Favorite things: baby Einstein

Favorite things: baby Einstein

"Great minds start little." That's Baby Einstein's philosophy, and it's so true. Our babes, from the time they're born, are sponges, soaking up every little thing they see and hear and taste and touch. 

That's why we love the 3-in-1 Snack and Discover Seat by Baby Einstein (available at Babies R Us), because it encourages baby to reach developmental milestones like sitting up, snacking, and sitting with family at the table, as well as encourages learning, laughing, and family moments. There are 3 parts to the seat: Support Seat for the floor, Snack and Activity Seat with tray for the floor, and Chair Top Booster Seat strapped to a chair. It's super easy to move from one place to another around the house, and there's a soft and removable foam material on the seat which adds comfort and makes it easy to clean.

En La Casa | Fernweh Home

En La Casa | Fernweh Home

You know when you find a shop and you just have to have everything in it? 

Yeah, that's Fernweh Home. From the triangle shelves to the hanging nighstands, everything has me drooling. And! It's all made from reclaimed wood. Pictured here is the hanging nightstand and I love it even more than I thought I would. We only got one for now but we're planning to get another for the other side.  

We thought it might be too much with the hanging lights and hanging banner, but the hanging nightstand makes the area look clean and ties it all together perfectly.

Daily Harvest | easy organic smoothies

Daily Harvest | easy organic smoothies

Daily Harvest is a smoothie subscription service. You choose your smoothies and they're delivered right to your doorstep, ready to dump in a blender and enjoy. You choose from 6 or 12 smoothies weekly, or 24 smoothies monthly, with the option to skip at any time. No commitments. The smoothies are developed by nutritionists, with ORGANIC ingredients that are seriously amazing. At first, I was like, "how do they stay frozen en route to my doorstep?" The answer is dry ice. So you simply transfer them from the box to the freezer and dispose of the box quickly before your baby touches it. 

These smoothies are so good AND you can use the code letterstoever to get 3 free smoothies with your first order!

Ever Joy Eats | Baby Led Weaning

Ever Joy Eats | Baby Led Weaning

We started solids with Ever shortly after she turned six months old. She was obviously ready. She had been grabbing at our food and watching us eat and drink with awe for quite some time, but we wanted to wait until six months anyway. 

I've quite enjoyed the benefits of exclusively breastfeeding for the past six months (such as weight loss, and natural birth control, to name a couple ;)), and breastmilk will continue to be her main source of calories/food. Beginning solids is simply a way of teaching a baby how to eat like a human, getting them used to different flavors and textures.

Mom Style | Pink Blush

Saturday morning loungin' with some watermelon water that tasted of summer (that Ever desperately wanted to try). 

Another thing that has me so ready for summer is this dress from Pink Blush. Pink Blush is an online women's boutique. They're known for their maternity wear, but they have non maternity items too, and this dress happens to double as both. It's also nursing friendly, despite the high neck, because the arm holes are stretchy enough to pull open for easy access.
