I am such a sucker for needing some routine in my life to feel normal, productive and happy. As some of you parents know out there, it’s sometimes really hard to have any normalcy in your life with children, especially babies. So with a 3 year old and 7 month old, I have finally hit a comfortable stride and have… Read more →
I’m 4 weeks into this lovely postpartum phase with baby girl #2, and I must say so far, that this second time around is MUCH more enjoyable than the first time for me. A lot of that has to do with all the preparation (mental and physical) that I did before hand. My mental preparation this time was the most… Read more →
As I approach the latter stages of pregnancy and mentally prepare for baby #2, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I will change or do differently with my second baby. Of course it’s easy to make plans and hard to actually follow through with them, but at least this list can serve as a guide or reminder for me… Read more →
I’ve been baking baby Lowe numero dos (#2) for 19 weeks now, It’s crazy to think that we are almost half way there!
I feel fortunate to continue practicing yoga throughout this pregnancy because I’m also teaching prenatal yoga, so I’m constantly trying new things and getting new ideas for my classes. It’s so wonderful learning through the world of prenatal yoga, teaching it and practicing it myself, seeing what feels right for my rapidly changing body.
Soaking in these beautiful Summer-like Fall days before winter comes, hoping to be able to practice outside for many more days to come!
On another note – Isla is mostly practicing her savasana in this video, although her interest in yoga has been growing a lot lately. A book I’ve found to be very good at getting a toddler to participate is called Good Night Yoga which she loves doing before bed with me.
Enjoying this hawt weather, practicing yoga on the deck and feeling the sun on our faces.
We love summer! And Isla loves her “gymnastics” (aka balancing on a board).
Happy Monday Y’all!
Lia + Isla
I bought Isla a lion Halloween costume last year even though she was only 3 months old. Obviously she didn’t trick-or-treat last year, but I did put it on her for about 2 minutes, in which time she screamed until I took it off. This year it was a little more successful with the costume. We prepped her with her… Read more →
Isla and I had the best morning together today. I am so enjoying this age – she is curious, inquisitive, generous and I couldn’t be more proud to see her becoming this awesome little human. Today we went to a baby and mom yoga class offered free for Peterborough Breastfeeding Week. She was the oldest one there but… Read more →
We started signing with Isla at about 6 months, and around month 10, we finally started seeing results. It was a minor investment of our time, staying consistent with it and now the payback is huge! She started signing milk at around 10 months, followed by more and all done. I found that these 3 signs were all we needed… Read more →
This smoothie recipe came out one of the deepest shades of green, but that didn’t affect how sweet and delicious it was! A few edits I would make after making this once: Add another cup of water to make it smoother Add a few cubes of ice to make it cool (or substitute a frozen fruit) Don’t add the greens to… Read more →
Time seems to slip away more than ever now that we have a little one. The first few months are a total blur, brought to you by lack of sleep and getting to know a new little human. Everyone who knows me well, knows that I speak openly about my struggles adapting to my new life in the first 6… Read more →
