Preparing my Body for Baby #2

Monday, February 18, 2019
This post was written in collaboration with Ava Women, however, all opinions are my own.

I have always wanted at least two kids. Our first little man came into our world two and a half years ago, and not only have I never experienced such love, but it only affirmed my desire to continue to grow our family.

That said, conceiving the first time around wasn't as simple as we had imagined. After months of wacky cycles post birth control, a discovery of undiagnosed Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and countless negative pregnancy tests, we were finally blessed with those two pink lines.


My Favorite Podcasts for Moms

Monday, February 11, 2019
One of my favorite ways to spend any "alone" time I get is listening to podcasts. Be it at the gym, on a solo car ride or while simply lounging at home, I relish in the opportunity to listen to others and learn from their wisdom and life experiences. Many of the podcasts I'm loving lately, are geared toward the various facets of motherhood and cover a whole range of topics from child development and learning, to health, to fostering a gospel-centered home. I am so grateful to the women who have put their heart and soul into sharing their knowledge with us, so I thought I would spread the love and share a few of my personal favorites with you all today.

1. Mom Enough: A podcast featuring mother/daughter duo Dr.'s Marti & Erin Erickson that offers parenting tips and research based advice on a variety of topics related to raising kids today.
