  1. I came across a great idea for my 9 mo old boys now that the weather has really warmed up. Breastmilk popcicles! My boys LOVE them! I also found a recipe for breastmilk ice cream I want to try out as well!

  2. I loved the video and am glad to be thinking ahead for when I have baby #2 how nice it would be to have a place with a backyard (for all those reasons you listed).

  3. Summer activities include a state national park that offers not really a zoo but its a organization that helps local injured wild animals. They keep many of them for life (like the poor retailed hawk with one eye.) but they also release those that can. Its great to tour their park, the outdoor area is free, the indoor area is $3 for adults and $1.50 for kids. Its great, its cheap, its educational, and my daughter looks forward to going there every year. Then in September there is also an area where you stand on top of a balcony on a hill and you can watch the hawks migrate. Also our state offers “Free Fun Fridays” which offers a 3 month schedule where for one day the attractions around the area are free. Things like the Plymouth Plantation (an attraction where you visit a town that is completely made up to look like the village of Plymouth MA and everyone acts like how the Pilgrims would live.), Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Battleship Cove, just so many attractions completely for free. Its a great program and we love taking up our favorite attractions. Once baby gets here, I’m sure we will be stuck at home that summer as baby will be about Paloma’s age. But we luckily don’t live far from these attractions but we will just have to cut these visits short. Luckily, my parents lives just down the road and they have a nice pool for us to relax in.

    • Gotta love the parents with a pool 🙂

  4. I dont know what it is about this week, but you just look so lovely today 🙂 🙂
    As far as summer activities……we enjoy the zoo, the park, the state parks, kayaking, hiking, our six year old loves to fish, we plan to goto a kangaroo conservation center (been waiting 3 years for this because my oldest needed to be 7 years old and she will be in a few days), sidewalk chalk, hanging out at the farmers market and letting Angelina ride her scooter and me get some grownup time and let everyone hold our new baby girl 🙂 🙂 Geo caching….picnics in the backyard…also our library has loads to do in the summer…like magic show performers, jugglers, snake masters, ect…
    Thanks for that clip of Paloma…i was laughing and clapping…cheering her along…what a treat 🙂 🙂

    • Thank you so much for the kind words! After reading all your activities, I wish we could all spend summers with YOU! 🙂

  5. What podcasts do you listen to? I’d love to know & I am SO excited for you to begin your own!!!! 🙂

  6. Hi, I love your video. But can you also do a video of how you stock your fridge? I buy a lot of vegetables but I keep them in the plastic bags you put them in at the store. This tends to look messy in the fridge and it is hard to tell which vegetables are in which bag. Do you put them in bowls, or clear boxes or something? Please I need some visual advice! Thanks

  7. Hi there! I was just wondering what you do with all of the coconut milk?

    • n

    • Hi Nicolette! I’ve been dairy free since Paloma was born, as she gets fussy when I’m on dairy. Griffin was the same way – the sacrifices we make as mothers! So I use the coconut milk instead – in teas and other drinks, on the occasional bowl of oatmeal, in recipes. Just love it. BUT, the amount shown in the video was a big stock up – I don’t use it all in one week 🙂
