Babies!

As a veteran mama, now Grammie (Sheila), and new mama (Amberlyn), we have gathered together experience and research (surprise) and are wading our way through this adventure. We certainly don’t have it all figured out – and never will – as every baby is different and each new day is a new challenge.

We HAVE found baby products that are safe and non-toxic, figured out a few tips, and are trying to learn some more as we go. Being a parent, especially a new one, is enough work without trying to dig through millions of baby products and information. So, we’d love to spare you any footwork we can.

Pregnancy Tidbits

This topic is of very recent interest to me (Amberlyn), as I just had my first baby a few months ago. As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I started researching madly, questioning (as always) the cliches of pregnancy health. A conglomeration of sources, studies, and the pioneering wisdom of mommy bloggers before me guided me through pregnancy nutrition, supplementation, etc.

The main takeaway? Everything that enters your body now directly affects your baby’s development and future health. I certainly don’t have a thorough handle on it all. but I’m eager to share what I have learned.

Skincare and Beauty Stuff

Skincare au naturale… the labyrinth of products, all guaranteed to be safe AND effective… but usually leave you looking like a dermatologist’s nightmare, OR just leave you unknowingly still slathering hidden chemicals on your largest organ: your skin.

We have run this rat race of skincare madness and finally eliminated all chemicals from our daily routine, while managing to keep from sporting elephant skin. And to make it even better, our skincare routine is rather simple.

Interested yet? Well, we’d love to share!

Recipes on the Way!

We just straight up love cooking. And not just open-the-cookbook-and-follow-directions kind of cooking. Nooo… ware mad scientists in the kitchen. Our family jokes that we can never just cook from one recipe… we usually end up reading a bunch, referencing a few, and throwing our twist on them to create our own masterpiece. We also healthy-ize them – no processed foods, refined sugars and flours, or bad oils here!

Sooooo… this section of the blog is dedicated to sharing the results and successes of these adventures! Healthy, yummy recipes – tweaked so you don’t have to!
