Baby Steps with Baby Food

I've been a little hesitant with introducing my daughter to solids. It's my first time being a mom and I've been really trying to listen to my daughter's pediatrician.

My Not-So-Great Teenage Years (Part 1)

It was the second year of college and I always felt so sad; physically present but not there mentally or emotionally. Was it depression? I had no idea, but it was a feeling that suffocated me. I thought it all started during my senior year of high school, however, I realized it started way before that.… Continue reading My Not-So-Great Teenage Years (Part 1)
