Our little munchkin is getting bigger and bigger! At 5 months she was talking up a storm, though we still can’t make sense of the words. She loves her animals, Barni and Benji, and even took a swim class. Read more →
As you can probably imagine, date night is few and far between when you have a new baby. Even when you have someone offer to watch the baby, the last thing I’ve wanted to do is go out to dinner. What I WANT is pizza delivered and to clean up our living room/bedroom, etc. I want to get caught up on the laundry. I want to vacuum and pick up toys. I want to make our living space less chaotic so that when we have the baby back, we aren’t tripping over things or riffling through the clothing pile to find something clean. I know my husband and I are long overdue for a night on the town, but we’re pretty happy right here at home for now.
Over the holiday weekend we had some time to ourselves so we decided to clean off the coffee table — wow, it’s so pretty under all the stuff piled on it — and kick back and relax with some wine and snacks.
Let me just say, Trader Joe’s has the best cheeses and crackers. We brought popped a bottle of our Jacuzzi Prosecco leftover from our wedding and drank out of our beautiful Tiffany’s champagne glasses that were a wedding a gift from a coworker. We received this gorgeous handmade butcher block from our friends at Childs & Co. that I used as the platter. Made from walnut, maple and cherry woods, this butcher block was the perfect centerpiece for our at-home date night.
Bri and Connor Childs, the husband/wife duo behind Child’s & Co., started handcrafting cutting boards and butcher blocks as gifts before realizing they should open an Etsy shop and sell them. I love supporting small businesses, especially small businesses in California.
The family-owned and operated Child’s & Co. wooden blocks make the perfect gift for weddings, holidays, housewarmings, or for foodies. Don’t forget to order one for yourself here! Follow them on Instagram and see their newest projects @childs.co.

This little girl has me wrapped around her fingers and has also engrossed my iPhone photo stream. Kinsley turned four months on December 30 and here are the ‘4 month’ photos that didn’t make the cut. Coming soon: 5 month photos!

This mama returned to work yesterday after three months of maternity leave taking care of my little girl, Kinsley. Even though we got out of the house a fair amount of time during my leave, my family and I didn’t get any of the fall bugs that were going around. We went to the doctor’s office multiple times for checkups. We went on walks outside, sometimes when it was wet out. We evn hung out with a 5-year old who was just starting to get sick. Still we all remained pretty healthy.
