I began my baby registry and had to put it away after the first fifteen minutes because I was so overwhelmed. The opposite happened the next time I logged on to start my registry—I was sucked into this black hole of baby gear and it took me 7 hours to find my way out!
I’m convinced I was brainwashed while it this alternate universe. I’m not a person...

I thought naming Baby Bean was going to be the fun part. I’ve had the perfect baby names up my sleeve even before I knew I wanted babies. When it was time to put them on the table, I came up empty.

Is it okay that the next person to tell me that I look like I’m about to ‘pop’ should watch out because I might have to ‘pop’ them in the face? Is it okay that when my husband tells me I look beautiful, I...

Baby Bean arrives in just a few months and as a first time momma, I’ve got a lot of questions. Luckily, I have a vast support group that I can turn to when I need advice. How many bottles do I need to buy? What kind of stroller should I get? Do I need a bassinet or just a crib?
For the most part, it’s great advice but every once in a...

I love that we live in a melting pot of cultures; white, black, brown, orange (I live in LA, so I’ve seen ‘orange’ people) — so many different kinds of people and we can’t wait to expose Baby Bean to all of it. But...
