It is said that motherhood is the toughest job on the market, but the most rewarding. It is the job/title many of us yearn for. There are so many things that come with motherhood that many of us are unaware of until it happens.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas celebrating with their loved ones! We are in Seattle as it’s our yearly tradition to spend it with our dad who lives here. The weather here is such a nice change where we can bundle up, drink hot cocoa, and eat tons of delicious baked goodies. It’s so fun to see Kaia being so interactive this year and boy, she loves all the baked treats she’s been getting to eat. You should see her belly! Haha.
It’s no surprise that some of the best beauty and fashion come straight out of France. Catimini, a French children’s clothing company that has become an international brand just opened a few months ago at the new International Marketplace in Waikiki. They are best known for their playful and daring designs that are inspired by travel and cultural fusions season after season. These cute European inspired designer digs don’t come cheap, but they are definitely unique and the fun themes and prints are nothing like you have ever seen.
Two weeks after bringing Rhys home from the hospital we decided to bring on a baby nurse to help us take care of Rhys and show us everything we need to know about taking care of a baby.
