Disneyland With A Baby

Disneyland With A Baby


disneyland_with_baby

Right now I'm sitting at the table drinking a big cup of coffee, and Charlotte is taking a long nap. Charlotte and I flew home yesterday after spending four really fun days in California! My husband is working down there at the moment, so while it was a bit nerve wracking to fly alone with a baby, it was really nice to see him for a few days.

I didn't originally plan to write a post about our trip, but this morning I kept re-visiting what went well, what I would change, etc. So I decided while I'm clearly not a seasoned expert on traveling with a baby, maybe what I share can benefit someone else preparing to embark on an adventure with a little one!

Charlotte's Nursery

Charlotte's Nursery


Ok y'all, I am JUST now sharing pictures of Charlotte's nursery. I know, I know, she's 9.5 months old and it's hardly a "reveal" at this point. Oh well, you win some you lose some!

At the beginning of my pregnancy I said that I wanted a neutral nursery, regardless of gender. Well, that all went zooming out the window the minute I found out we were having a girl. Suddenly I was searching for everything pink and floral I could get my hands on!

I loved putting together this special space for Charlotte. I wanted it to be warm, cozy and feminine, but also didn't want it to feel overwhelmingly "pink".

This crib is from Pottery Barn, and I like how simple it is. The nursery furniture trend right now seems to be dark wood, but I opted for white because I wanted the space to be classic and bright. Unfortunately this crib isn't available anymore, but I also love this option. To be quite honest I love pretty much anything Pottery Barn puts out!

First Snow & Mulled Wine

First Snow & Mulled Wine



This past week it snowed for the first time this winter. I have to admit that I wasn't super stoked about it, because it makes driving so much more stressful. What totally made up for that though was the fact that it was Charlotte's first time seeing snow!

Obviously this will be much more exciting in future years when she can actually play in it. I'm already taking notes of the best sledding hills in the area!

A Day at the Orchard & Apple Bran Muffins

A Day at the Orchard & Apple Bran Muffins



A few weeks ago, Jordan and I decided to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather, and pick some apples from our local orchard. The leaves were just starting to change, and we experienced the first real chilly weather of autumn.

While apple picking seems to be a trendy thing to do these days, it's something I've done with my family for the past few years. It's a great way to get out into the fresh air, and a really cost effective way to buy organic apples!
