Milo is just about to be 9 months old, and so far he’s visited four countries (Portugal, France, Japan, and a quick stop in Spain), taken two long-haul flights (14 and 13 hours) and three flights to Europe. That’s a lot of time in the air — and a lot of time dealing with time change / jet lag. The #1 question I’m asked when it comes to flying with a baby is how in the world do you manage a 14 hour flight?Β To be honest, it’s really not all that bad.

A Weekend At Home

A Weekend At Home

There’s nothing more important to me than spending time with family. As Milo grows up, I want him to know his aunts, uncles, cousin and of course his grandparents. We’re so lucky to live close to my sisters, my parents, and Matt’s brothers. After a busy few weeks of traveling (more to come on that very, very soon!), it was so nice to have an easy weekend at home with my sister, Carolyn and her new (!) husband, Tom.

As I’ve mentioned, the transition from pregnancy to motherhood is unlike anything else. It’s amazing and filled with more love than you can grasp, but it’s also the hardest thing I’ve ever done. There is so much ‘homework’ during pregnancy surrounding labor and those first few weeks. But what comes next?

We’ve been having the most amazing, spring-like weather and it has me feeling so excited for spring. I know, I know… I should be excited about winter (present moment, right?) and I’m getting there. These photos are definitely helping. The snow was beautiful well it lasted, but I can’t say that I’m sad that it melted away without weeks of salt and ice.

Thank you so much for all the kind encouragement on my last post. Navigating motherhood has been a challenging (yet rewarding) experience and it feels so good to share how I’m really doing. I’d love to continue the conversation since I think there’s so much good to be shared between us. We’re all just doing our best!

This past November, we took Milo on his first international trip. We wanted to visit my grandfather in FranceΒ so they could meet and we decided to add Portugal to our itinerary. We had never been and it had long been on my wishlist of places to visit.

Wow. Has it really been six months since I’ve last posted? It’s crazy how time moves with a newborn baby. It felt like time was suspended those first few weeks – nurse, pump, offer bottle, burp, change diaper, snooze (me and babe), wake up in a worried state that I missed something.Β Waiting for anything to go wrong.
