Baby stories — those I’ve got plenty of. From the “firsts” with my first, the unexpected with my second to the I’m-no-longer-surprised-or-grossed-out experiences with my third. As a third time mamá this time around I’m definitely more relaxed. You feel the hardships with the other two, but that “Mommy Bootcamp” has prepared you for anything this little one may throw your way — even with
My days are varied, often stressful and needless to say no two are the same but one thing that is constant is my mid morning break — my “elevensies” as the British say. It’s the time after breakfast and before lunch when you need a pick me up to shake off the craziness of the morning and truly settle into the day. Having lived in
Get ready, get BROODY! After the exhaustion, hard times, the crying, spit up covered clothing — at the end of the day babies are simply magical. Here is how we do bedtime starting with a warm bath, a gentle baby massage using Aveeno Baby Therapy Nighttime Balm, lots of kisses and lights out! I’ve loved doing baby massages since my son was born. Babies enjoy the
DO NOT REPRODUCE OR COPY IMAGES WITHOUT PERMISSION Shopping for baby girl clothes can be oh-so-dangerous! I truly enjoyed buying cute baby clothes for my first daughter and more recently (she’s 3 1/2) seeing her choose her own pieces as she develops her own sense of style. Now it’s Elisa’s turn to be styled by mami and Carter’s has everything we need from basics such as bibs, bodysuits
Fellow mom boss, blogger and entrepreneur Nicole Feliciano of MomTrends has taken the time to put her experiences down on paper in the form of Mom Boss: Balancing Entrepreneurship, Kids and Success.

Here she is! Meet Adorra, the new Maxi-Cosi stylish stroller with the Mico Max 30 Car Seat Travel System. She’s sleek, stylish, comfortable and versatile.

Yes, I’m all smiles because of my baby girl, but truth is I’m a hot (literally) mess! It’s been 2 months since giving birth and she being my first summer baby (the other two were in January) I have to say I’m NOT loving this time of year with a newborn — high temperatures, super long days, mosquitoes and the other kids are home for vacation.

She’s mine and I can’t stop staring at her! Elisa is my saving grace, my light, my everything. Amazing how she, my third child, has
I don’t claim to be a money saving expert, but I am money conscious. Times have been tough for a few years and being a one (steady) income household (my work varies depending on projects and clients and it’s not constant) we have to continuously change the way we budget our lives — sometimes month to month, other times at longer intervals.

No joke, I’ve been trying to sit and write this for days now. Any parent will know that having a newborn plus other kids can be INSANE. Throw in summer vacation and a massive heat wave that doesn’t let us be outside for too long to the mix and well… I’m a ticking time bomb. In partnership with Luvs and SocialStars. Tales of motherhood and cute kids are my own!
I’ve been trying to write and post this since Monday, but all things baby get in the way and frankly — I’m absolutely thrilled with that! Some days while the other two are playing or watching TV I’m doing nothing more than sitting, holding and staring at Elisa. Yes, STARING. Watching her sleep, smelling and kissing her. She is my addiction — I can’t get enough of
Soooo, I had a baby. YES! My labor had to be induced last minute due to my struggle with high blood pressure and in the end, preeclampsia. For her safety and mine, it was best to bring her into this world a bit early at 37 weeks — my daughter, Elisa María was born small but strong and healthy on the morning of July 2nd. Leading up to the
