Chiropractic Care For Newborns And Nursing

Chiropractic Care For Newborns And Nursing

This is something that I feel very strongly about and want to share with you!  Remember my post on getting kids adjusted along with pregnant mamas?  Well, this just got taken to a whole other level. Chiropractic care saved mine and Sophia’s nursing relationship! Knowing full well that I went to get an adjustment every … Continue reading

It’s A Girl!

It’s A Girl!

Introducing the newest crunchy baby: Sophia Audrey, 8 pounds 1 ounce, 21 inches long, and happy and healthy! In case you didn’t catch the news on facebook or Instagram, we had another baby girl!  Like Emma, we waited to find out the gender of this baby, and I have to say I was excited to have … Continue reading

Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta Encapsulation

It’s about to get crunchy up in hur…so bear with me.  Don’t worry, I promise not to show actual pictures. I know you’re probably thinking, ‘Please tell me you’re not about to talk about eating your placenta, are you?’  ‘That’s disgusting!’  I know, I know, I was there just a short while ago, but I have … Continue reading

A Beachy 3rd Birthday

If you recently saw my Instagram pictures, you know that we celebrated Emma turning three a few weeks ago, on July 24th.  I’m still not sure why I never shared anything about her 2nd birthday and the ‘totally awesome twos,’ but I didn’t.  It has been a blast to watch her grow into a little girl over the … Continue reading

The Squatty Potty

The Squatty Potty

Let’s talk potty posture. Ya’ll know I’m no stranger to a little potty talk (see here and here), so let’s get another issue out there.  This one is pretty crunchy (much like the DivaCup), but after the initial ‘c’mon, this is crazy talk!’ and a little help from Emma’s stool, I think it’s legit.  I first saw … Continue reading

Decide What’s Important To You

Decide What’s Important To You

…and your family. We met up with some friends last week (who happen to be workout freaks) and I could tell the wife was itching to pick my brain.  She knows I’m Paleo and that I cook all.the.time.  So while I was sitting on the couch, she came to sit by me and asked, “Jess, do you really … Continue reading
