Lions and tigers and strollers, oh my! Going to the zoo is a part of every parent’s life at some point or another and it was our turn. Clear skies, cool breezes, and tame animals filled our day as we walked through the Oakland zoo with Granna and Pop. Amused by all the animals, Nic... Continue reading


To all my plant-lovers out there! Lately I’ve been a little obsessed with plants. If it has leaves and it’s green, chances are I want it in my house. Since moving to a much sunnier place I have been trying to bring in more plants because I really love them and I love the way... Continue reading

Getting older is hard, especially when you just entered the world only 5 weeks ago. But, this week has been really good! Nic has had a couple new “firsts” this week and it’s been exciting to see him do new things. Matt and I have learned even more about Nic and realized that we can... Continue reading


Has it really been a month already?? I’m pretty sure I entered some kind of time warp or something because it really doesn’t feel like my baby is one month old!
