Top of the List

This little boy was on the top of my gratitude list this year. It is amazing to be privy to the small changes and things he learns each day and I feel so blessed to be his mother. I'm feeling equally blessed to have Ben by my side through it all because parenting is as hard as it is joyful.

I hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving surrounded by loved ones and hopefully it involved quite a bit less sickness than ours did. Both our poor weekend guests got sick and we're just praying Lincoln didn't catch whatever it was. It means there are LOTS of leftovers and our whole holiday was pretty low key but it was great to have company and an excuse to take naps each day. ;)

P.S. This plaid top doesn't wrinkle so its bee on repeat since I last shared it a couple months ago + I'm loving the quilted detail in these boots (plus they're on sale).

An Update

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nutrimom for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

So I promised a few weeks ago when I talked about a new program I was starting called Nutrimom that I would keep you updated (first post here). I've been chatting (via phone) + messaging with my nutrition coach and Annie is fantastic! She got to know me and Lincoln and we talked mainly about our eating habits (Nutrimom has seven core pillars including healthy eating, healthy feeding, taste development, hydration, sleep, physical activity, and stress management but I'm mainly focused on eating/feeding because that is what I'm most concerned with right now). Over the next few days I'll be sending pictures to her of what we eat (super easy using the app) so she has a fuller picture from which to give me meal plans and tips.

I've also been reading articles on their site (they have SO much good info) about introducing foods to babies and it reaffirmed the importance of introducing Linc to a wide variety of tastes and textures in these first few months of eating solids. Right now he mainly eats what we eat for dinner so that really means making sure I'm cooking a wide range of things. So, any favorite recipes I should try?

I'll keep you posted on how the logging of the food goes and the implementation of Annie's Personal Coaching tips but I'm excited to be accountable for what we're eating and to get some ideas on how to branch out a little bit. I'm also looking forward to learning a bit more about their specialized nutrition products they have for every stage of baby development from conception through year two. They have a subscription box and a few samples arrived which Lincoln loved (although I'm still trying to teach him to eat out of one of those squeeze packets by himself). They also have prenatal dietary supplements and great nutrition bars to help women + baby through pregnancy which would have been great to have around this time last year.

Congrats on surviving Wednesday...can it just be Thanksgiving yet?

Unusually Warm

We've had an unusually warm week for mid November so on Sunday we enjoyed what might have been a final leisurely family walk outside where at least one of us was barefoot ;) Our little Lincoln has turned into such a little person these days and I love it. I love the way he tries to get our attention by smiling, clapping, or laughing (he's got his fake laugh down) and how happy he is to see us. I also love finding him tucked away in his room "reading" to himself. When I do, there's a 50% change the book is upside down :)

I hope you're having a wonderful week! 

my skirt: LOFT (on huge sale now and only available in xxs, xs, and s - but it is my favorite purchase of the season AND has pockets so...get on that).
