Let’s Rock n’ Stroll

I never knew that strollers had evolved so much over the years. I have always used and loved our existing stroller brand with both Harper and Noa, but since partnering with Babies’R’Us Canada, I was given an opportunity to venture out and see what else was out on the market. Plus, it’s important for me (and all of us mamas) to stay up to date with what’s new and exciting in the stroller world because so much is changing all the time. From size and weight to prints and patterns, the stroller game is no joke!

My Journey From Bump to Baby

As many of you have read in my posts, my journey to baby #2 was not an easy one. WhenFirst Response asked to interview me to dig deeper into my story, as part of the “This is My Journey” campaign with Today’s Parent, I knew it would bring out a lot of emotions. This campaign is intended to share women’s unique pregnancy journeys to help provide support to other women and families to know they’re not alone.

But this time around, Harper and I set aside the running shoes and trainers and we’re focusing on rain boots instead!

6-Weeks Postpartum. Now What?

This is me 6 weeks postpartum. My body is softer and my skin is looser; sure, I'm excited to get back to my fitness routine, but I just made a beautiful little human which took 39 weeks to bake, so I'm in no rush whatsoever. Although this week my OB told me my "recovery was quick" and that I was allowed to get back to the gym, I am still following my own advice about taking it slow. Here are some tips to help you ease back into it too.
