Happy New Year!!  I finally have the time and energy to write about my recovery after giving birth to Ever.  Yes, five and a half months later!  First of all, I am obviously not a doctor and I am just sharing my experience for things that helped me...  I am no authority, but if anything ...

I was so inspired by our night at Lulu's house that I embraced my inner domestic goddess, made my house a Halloween sanctuary and whipped up some culinary delights for Mary and Napper.  Baby Ever is still on the sauce so he didn't get to sample my creations, but he did enjoy a swim in ...

So we've had Lulu Powers thrust high upon a pedestal since we laid our hands on her vibrant and inspiring coffee table book, Lulu Powers: Food to Flowers.  At the time we were working on our own book (stay tuned...) and literally everything out of our mouths was, "Well, you know how Lulu does it ...

Not sure what says Happy Halloween like a bunch of babies all dressed up in costume?  Thanks to the moms and babies in my baby group for letting me share the cuteness.  Ever is paying tribute to his Leo astrological sign in a lion cub ensemble...  He also quite loves Katy Perry's "Roar," much to ...
