James Reilly – One Month Update

On July 8th, James turned one month old! Similar to Dean, I am going to keep an online "baby book" - It is much easier for me to type these updates than it is for me to write them into a book for …Continue Reading

DockATot Review

This is not a sponsored post. I purchased our DockATot Deluxe+ and was not provided any discount from DockATot. If you’re a new parent, you’ve most likely heard the hype surrounding the newest magic sleeping bullet for babies. The DockATot boasts some pretty impressive online reviews – Babies sleeping through the night (like 12 hours […]

Time for a change!

Tomorrow, July 8th, marks ONE month since James arrived in our world. Where does the time go?! I would say that I had a fairly easy pregnancy… actually, I take that back. No pregnancy is EASY, but I had zero health complications and for that I am grateful. I was pretty nauseous until midway through […]

Weekly Cleaning Schedule

Do your stress levels rise when your house is a mess? Personally, I hate chaos in my home (I am learning to adjust with two little boys!) and I feel much more relaxed and happy when my house is in order. Is my home always spotless? Hahahahahahah <– Sorry, I got a good laugh out […]

James Reilly – Newborn Photos

Doesn’t everyone love an adorable collection of newborn baby photos? Yes? Because he’s my kid and naturally I think he’s cute, I thought I’d share James’ newborn images from his photo shoot last week. They were taken when he was 5 days new and our photographer, Rochelle Shucart did an incredible job. She’s taken all […]

That day had come […]

Baby #1 vs. Baby #2 – Pregnancy Differences

They say each pregnancy is different. I’m not sure who “they” entails, but from my experience – even with babies of the same gender, the saying is totally accurate! Baby Boy #2 has definitely given me more of a run for my money than Dean ever did… I’m nervous this is a foreshadowing into his […]

Still Pregnant…

Oh, hi! Remember me? Becky, the blogger behind Olives ‘n Wine? Yes? No? It’s been 5 whole months and boy do I have a lot of updates to share with y’all. I’m due with Little Brother (LB) TODAY, June 5th. Personally, I think my due date is closer to the 9th… we shall see! With […]

Baby Boy #2 Wishlist

We are excited to welcome Little Brother into our family in June! I was (not-so) secretly hoping for a second boy – I had images of bunk beds and a baseball-themed room and brothers in my head, PLUS boy meant we didn’t need any new baby items. Although, let’s be real, if it were a […]
