My Indonesian Home Makeover Part 7: Making a Nest for Baby Bird

If there was one room I was most excited to put together when we moved, it was our baby girl’s room.

Surviving [and Loving] Overseas Flights With a Baby

Looking back, this is probably one of the easiest ages to fly with a child. I didn’t have to worry about kid friendly snacks or drinks. At almost four months old, all she does is breastfeed.

Portrait of a Mother-To-Be

But I did want to share these stunning maternity photos my husband & I had taken once arriving back in the US. Our good friend,… Continue reading Portrait of a Mother-To-Be
