Sharing some of our favorite looks of the moment–the most adorable blue and white dress for Naiya and a red midi skirt for me. Blogging away from Prague tonight after a whirlwind few days. Sharing a short post today since our internet is so incredibly slow over here (#travelproblems) but I wanted to share the latest and greatest. Sharing outfit details and a little bit about our trip so far below. Excited to put together a detailed Prague guide for anyone hoping to travel here in the future too. Stay tuned!

ON TUESDAYS, WE WEAR PINK

Los Angeles blogger, RELish By Arielle and her daughter share their matching pink outfits

I feel like life is moving a million miles per minute! In case you missed my recent article here, Naiya has officially turned one! We threw a unicorn party for her at a local park with close friends and family and I may or may not have gone completely overboard with decorations and gluten-free, sugar-free cake. Yeah–I totally became that mom. Sharing a recent mom and baby outfit post with you today that’s all about all pink everything. Can’t wait to share Naiya’s birthday photos soon!

A LOOK BACK: NAIYA’S FIRST YEAR

And just like that, Phil and I are the proud parents of a one-year-old! The first time I held Naiya exactly one year ago last night (#imnotcryingyourecrying), my nurse handed her over to me and told me to savor the moment because I’d blink and the next year would fly by.  While I assumed that time would go quickly, in the insanely sleep-deprived, over-the-top stressful first few weeks of Naiya’s life, I never could have imagined just how quickly.  When she was first born, I often wanted to speed up time so that we could find our new normal. Now here we are, exactly one year later (at 11:40pm last night!) and I only wish we could go back to that first moment with Naiya to do it all over again.

5 HACKS FOR SURVIVING YOUR FIRST YEAR OF MOTHERHOOD

Los Angeles mom blogger, RELish By Arielle shares how to survive your first year of motherhood

Since Naiya is about to turn one year old later this week, I’ve been feeling overly nostalgic recently (I’m not crying storing her 6-12 month old clothing in the attic–you’re crying!). Hands down, this has been the most incredible, meaningful, pivotal and exhausting year of my life. I’ve never felt such extreme highs and lows in the same hour, let alone in the same week as I have this year. I’ve also never felt so happy, terrified and also so fulfilled all at the same time. 

5 TIPS FOR FLYING WITH YOUR TODDLER

It’s been such a whirlwind of a week since I last posted! Phil, Naiya and I flew to New York City for a wedding last Friday and we visited with friends and family throughout the weekend. Although we arrived back in LA on Monday, I feel like I’m still recovering! Traveling with our almost one-year old was so much more exhausting than when Naiya was a newborn (more about our first trip with her here). Likewise, along with today’s outfit post, I’m rounding up my Top 5 Tips For Surviving Flights With Your Toddler using all of the intel we learned along our trip. I know we could have used all the advice we could get before our trip so hopefully today’s post will help other families taking the travel plunge with their little ones in the near future.
