Birth and Fear

Birth and Fear // @ The Little Things We Do

If you were to ask me what the most important factor  in having a natural birth is, I would tell you that it’s getting rid of fear. {Fern helping out at my 34 week midwife appointment} When you’re pregnant there is one common theme when it comes to the advice others will bestow on you […]

That One Time I Actually Read a Book

That One Time I Actually Read a Book and It Was Fantastic // @The Little Things We Do

OK, confession time: the last time I read a book was in 2011. I know. It’s positively shameful. That last book was Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth and it was before I had Fern. The year is now 2014 and that’s just embarrassing. In my defense…I spend a lot of time at a computer for work, […]

What Fern Wore: FabKids // @The Little Things We Do

Awhile back I was invited to try out FabKids for Fern. FabKids is an online outfit subscription shop that was started by a group of parents (including Christina Applegate) and it’s actually really cool and different from some of the others I’ve seen – namely in the fact that it’s so affordable! The basic rundown is that […]
