Sourdough Pizza: Our Friday Night Tradition
Last week’s post was pretty long, so I thought I’d keep this week’s a little more brief and share about our Friday night tradition–sourdough pizza! Making homemade pizza on Friday nights has been a tradition for us off and on over the past few years. I got out of the habit of making it while pregnant two years ago, but sometime last year we decided to bring it back. It makes meal planning just a little easier for me if I always know I can automatically plug in sourdough pizza for Friday night every week.
Visiting Disney World While Pregnant: Our Disney Babymoon
Today’s post is a throwback to nearly two years ago when we took a babymoon trip to Disney World while I was 22 weeks pregnant with my son. I read so many blog posts like this one while we were preparing for our trip, and I thought I might as well throw my own experience into the mix. Even though our trip was a couple years ago, much of our magical Disney World trip is still fresh on my mind. My husband and I knew we wanted to take a babymoon trip, but honestly we were a little hesitant at first to try visiting Disney World while I was pregnant.…
Our First Road Trip with a One Year Old
After the crazy year we had in 2020 of never really leaving home, we didn’t get to take our first road trip with our one year old until a few weeks ago when we made the 6.5-hour drive to visit my grandpa in Ohio. I’m not sure if we actually did things right or if we just got lucky with this particular road trip, but it went surprisingly well! Let’s talk about what we did to prepare for our road trip to make it as easy as possible for my husband and me, as well as for the little one.
What We’ve Learned from Cloth Diapering Our First Baby
I first became interested in cloth diapering long before I was even pregnant with my son. I think I saw someone on Instagram talking about it in their stories, and I filed it away for later. Early on in my pregnancy, I posed the idea of cloth diapering to my husband, and he was immediately on board! I did a deep dive into researching all the ins and outs of cloth diapers, learned a ton, and did a few things right and a few things wrong. You can learn so much online about cloth diapering, but the most important lessons come with your own firsthand experience as you discover how…
Books I Read in June
Last week I talked about the board books my son has been loving lately, but this week I want to share the what I read in June! These are the sort of posts that make me so glad I decided to move away from this being a food blog and to focus on motherhood instead. (Don’t get me wrong though–the recipes are still here and in my husband’s opinion, they’re still good! I think this sparkling blueberry lemonade might be just the right treat to accompany your summer reading.) Not every book I share will be directly related to motherhood, but some will be!
Board Books My 16 Month Old Loves
I’ve always known the importance of reading to kids from an early age, and since I’m a big reader myself, it wasn’t hard for me to make reading with my son a habit beginning when he was a newborn. He’s enjoyed books since he was tiny, but lately I’ve seen his interest in his board books grow even more. Often, he wants to spend 30 to 45 minutes at a time engaged with listening to the stories, looking at the pictures, and turning the pages. It has been so sweet to watch his love of books develop, and I so enjoy our precious reading time together each day.
