• #ad Anyone else have kiddos obsessed with music? I am so impressed with how well Ben is playing his @babyeinstein Magic Touch Piano! The sheets of music are color-coded, so he matches the notes on the cards to the keys on the piano and it is so cute! I never played an instrument, but Jason played in the marching band through college and both of our kids love playing with instruments. I can’t wait to see if they decide to pursue an instrument as they get older! You can find this cute little piano at our favorite place, @target. #ignitecuriosity #babyeinstein #benjaminp

  • I can’t believe I’m officially in my third trimester for the (99.9% sure 😬) last time. It’s such a bittersweet feeling... getting so close to meeting the final member of our family, but to know I’ll never get to experience the joy of seeing the tiny heartbeat in the first ultrasound or feeling the sweet kicks (and punches and dolphin flips). Ice cream, sno cones and the AC are my best friends right now. It’s also crazy to me that I still have another season to go before we welcome this sweet baby at the end of Sept or early October! #photobyblaire •

  • #ad When your mom spends too much time in @target so you just jam out while you’re waiting. I usually make them put back whatever toy they’ve latched onto in the store, but this @babyeinstein Magic Touch Piano is so cute! It doesn’t have any keys or buttons – they actually press the wood and it makes noise. Ben keeps saying “Please open mama?!” so I can’t wait to get it home and let him jam out there, you know, with the sound on the lowest setting. 😂😂 #ignitecuriosity #babyeinstein

  • Happy Prime Day!! I’m so excited to be shopping all the deals today, how about you?? #ad Lucky for us, my fave @kindsnacks are on sale! You can stock up just in time for the craziness of back to school. This Caramel Almond and Sea Salt bar is sweet and salty with just 5g of sugar! It’s keeping me going while I shop all day. 😉 #kindcollective #bekindtoyourself #primeday #amazonprimeday
  • Blaire cleaned her room and made her bed today. I think it’s so cute when she makes her bed and carefully arranges her animals! She usually cleans her room once a week, Sunday is the perfect day to start fresh. The majority of her toys are in there, she gets them all set up how she wants and I just feel bad making her put them away! Do your kids pick up their toys every night? #happilytristahome

  • messy house, no makeup, and a kid who doesn’t want to wake up from his late car nap... meaning bedtime will be difficult. But what’s so different about that?! 🤪☹️ When your kids come out of your bed for the 1937 time tonight, just know you’re not alone. #happilytristahome

  • If you need me I’ll be here taking a nap. JK. I’ll be in the car, curled up with my maternity pillow eating milk duds... hopefully taking a nap at some point. And I already changed into a comfy tee and some shorts that won’t button for the 6 hour drive. 🤣🤣🤣 How’s your Monday going?

Dressing the Bump: Winter Weather


Thank you to Motherhood Maternity for sponsoring today’s post! All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Dressing a baby bump is seriously my favorite! I feel so much more confident when I’m pregnant… which I guess may be strange considering someone else has taken over my body and it seems like every day I have a new ache or pain. BUT, pregnancy is such beautiful and amazing thing and I’m so excited to be able to experience it again. 

Both times I’ve been pregnant at the exact. same. time. I am due just about 4 weeks later than I was with Blaire. Being pregnant in the winter means I’m not one of those girls who gets by my entire pregnancy by just wearing the flowy dresses already in my closet. I am the girl who breaks out her maternity jeans by week 10 and has no regrets. We were having a somewhat mild winter, which meant I was wearing dresses to work a lot. These past few weeks have been FREEZING, so now I’m all about the cozy sweater and support leggings for my winter maternity style.

Outfit 1: Sweater c/o Motherhood Maternity | Leggings | Booties c/o UOI | Handbag, Michael Kors, Sold Out

Motherhood Maternity Dress and Long Slub Cardigan

Outfit 2: Dress c/o Motherhood Maternity | Sweater c/o Motherhood Maternity, Sold Out, Similar here | Booties c/o UOI

I actually wore the dress and long sweater to my 30th birthday party a few weeks ago. This dress is SO comfy and it’s long enough it should fit up until the day I have this baby. I love sweater like this cozy tunic because I can totally wear the postpartum, too. One of my biggest regrets after having Blaire was that I had nothing to wear in between the awkward stage where your body is definitely not back to anything resembling its former self.

Were you pregnant in the winter? What did you wear to stay warm AND comfy? xo

    You look adorable! Both times I was pregnant it was the same season too! I actually had the same due date with both boys! Luckily one was early and one was late so they are 2 years and 1 week apart!

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
  • It’s that time of the year again... you were just packing away the summer clothes and then it’s all of a sudden 80°. What’s the weather like where you live? #blaireandben
