Mornings with a Two-Year-Old Rebel

Baby Juliza is 2 and a half years old now. Old enough that I may have to stop referring to her as “baby” Juliza soon. You would think that sometime during that period, she would have learned how to sleep. As in all the way through the night. Not halfway. Not a quarter. But all… Continue reading Mornings with a Two-Year-Old Rebel

DIY Face Painting for Halloween: Baby Cheetah

Now that I have kids, I really get into Halloween every year. That usually manifests itself as homemade costumes for them, like this year’s DIY Doc McStuffins for baby Juliza.

For years, they have been my family’s go-to products for our hair and skin, because we… Continue reading Shea Moisture Baby Products are Our Faves

Stock Up for Baby for the End of the Year

If there’s one thing I wish I had done, it’s stock up on diapers before we brought baby Juliza home from the hospital. Of course, she was born unexpectedly three weeks early, and we initially planned to do cloth diapering (let’s just say that didn’t work out), but still. I would’ve saved myself a lot… Continue reading Stock Up for Baby for the End of the Year
