4 WAYS WE SURVIVED INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL WITH OUR TODDLER

Phil and I recently took the plunge into international travel with Naiya.  Thanks to some very helpful advice we learned beforehand as well as some experimentation on our own, our trip went so much smoother than we ever expected.  Sharing some of our favorite photos from our recent trip to Prague as well as four ways we survived our 18+ hour travel days with our ever-moving toddler. 

FAVORITE SHOPS FOR BABY GIRL HEADBANDS

Since I was almost entirely bald for the first year of my life (before my #bighairdontcare came in), my mom would spend hours hand-making me bows.  Apparently, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree because as soon as I learned Phil and I were having a baby girl, I couldn’t stop building up Naiya’s bow collection too.  Thankfully, I’ve found so many bows I love online, I don’t have to spend hours making them myself (because those of you who know me best know that I would totally do that!).  

RED MIDI DRESS + BABY RUFFLES

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 outfit details and a little bit about our trip so far below. Excited to put together a full detailed Prague guide for anyone hoping to travel here in the future soon as well. Stay tuned!

ON TUESDAYS, WE WEAR PINK

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.
