Lucky for us, having both boys so close in age reduced the amount of things I put on my registry, I only ended up needing a couple of things. We have tons of Axel’s clothes that will be used as hand-me-downs for Ander and all the funky gizmos and gadgets we got, too. But there were a few essentials I put on my registry this time around, that I hadn’t before.


Why a bassinet? When we first had Axel we were living in a smaller 1 BD apartment and had his crib right next to our bed in our room. There was no need for one and we had him sleeping in the crib from day one. It was honestly the best thing ever, there was no hard times transitioning him into his crib – he didn’t know any different.

This time around, we live in a larger apartment and Axel has his own room. But, in order to ease everyone into a smooth transition we put the Halo Bassinet on our list to have Ander close by the first few months. Especially if I will be breast feeding again – it’s the easiest thing. We just recently built it and can’t wait to use it! love the swivel factor of it.


Even though I’ve packed an outfit that Axel first wore in the hospital (for photo comparison purposes down the road) – I wanted Ander to have his very own take home outfit. This set from Monica & Andy is the absolute cutest, too! They are available in a bunch of different prints, but this tropical one was my absolute favorite. They are so soft and so tiny. It comes with 2 Grey tops with a matching pant, a printed onesie – with a matching swaddle blanket + beanie, plus a striped burp cloth. The absolute works. No need to pack anything else in my hospital bag.


Game changer. We purchased this one ourselves actually, before our summer vacation to Italy and it’s the absolute best. The pockets inside keep everything organized and in it’s place + the leather textured look is perfect enough for Adrian to rock it, too.


I’ve been seeing a lot about this cord-free silicone breast pump. I wish I would’ve had this when I was breast feeding Axel. Looking forward to having this on hand when I’m on the go or in the middle of the night when I really need to “let down” for comfort. Sorry guys, I know – TMI. Whatever. #Motherhood


Like I mentioned above, We’ll be having Ander in our room for the first few months in the bassinet. In order to not annoy either baby or dad during those late night feedings/changing sessions I thought this caddy was absolutely perfect. It has a small, dim light that would be perfect enough to light up the area and be quick ‘n easy change. Winning!


Now, I can’t say anything good or bad about these bottles because I’ve never used them. But they come highly recommended and I’m hoping that Ander will like them (when we need to use them). I plan on breast feeding for as long as I can – but there will be those days/nights where I’d rather switch him to stored breast milk for a little bit of a break….. or date night with Adrian.

What are some of your Baby Essentials? Would love to know!

Many women report no side effects. cialis in malaysia If you vomit within 2 hours of taking the levonorgestrel emergency contraceptive pill, you should contact your pharmacist about whether you need to take another tablet.

we're almost there.

there are so many things I could knit-pick (is that how you spell that?) about this photo like:

there are toys everywhere
my dining table is a mess
my feet are swollen
not wearing much of a fashionable outfit
etc etc etc

or, I can take it for what it is. three people. a mother and her sons. happiness. joy. excitement. and so so so much love.

we’re almost there and Ander, you’re almost here.

Cabin Fever

Ashley Sixto Artidiello Cybex Cloud Q

Being a “work-from-home” kind of mom, you sometimes run in to a Cabin Fever situation. Every so often, especially when the weather is cooperative, Axel and I head out the door to the nearest park for some time away from work and enjoy the fresh air. There are so many different kinds of parks close to where we live, it’s usually a quick power walk or drive away.

He’s in the stage where he wants to feel everything around him. It’s so fun to watch him run his fingers through the grass and look back at me with the biggest smile.

When I first found out I was pregnant, I was on the hunt for the perfect car seat + stroller duo that would be safe + functional. The Cybex Cloud Q was at the top of our list and honestly has been one of the most used products we own. I’m always on the go, so the Cybex Cloud Q car seat and stroller go with me too. And it won at all of my special requests.

1. SAFETY – It comes with two amazing safety features which keep me sane and concentrated on driving, instead of worrying about the nugget in the back seat. Telescopic Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P.) quickly absorbs side-impact forces and channels them through the flexible, EPS energy absorbing foam-lined shell – I never close the door without pulling this bar out. Also, at the base of the car seat in the car, theres a Load Leg that keeps the car seat in place if God forbid we get into a car accident. I’m telling you, this is awesome for peace of mind.

2. FUNCTIONAL enough where I could easily bring Axel with me anywhere: from a meeting, to the park or even a quiet dinner at our favorite local pasta spot and not lose points in the Cool Mom category. It easily clicks into our stroller base, so I don’t have to worry about the fuss of switching him into a stroller seat – especially when I’m in a hurry.

3. (Bonus Points) COMFORTABLE – I wish this thing came in my size. His car seat has a full reclining position when outside of the car which is the best thing to take advantage of when out at a restaurant and he’s a bit sleepy. #naptimeisthebesttime Where’s my nap?

So when Cybex reached out to me recently to talk about my experience with the Cloud Q, there was no hesitation on my part. If you know me, you know I’m always raving about this car seat and it’s awesome features. Plus, we get stopped all the time to ask where it’s from because of it’s really awesome and sleek armadillo-like canopy.

my very first mother's day

this year has been pretty fantastic so far, and summer hasn’t even started. I know it’s been a while since I last updated you guys here on my blog and a lot has happened: my business model has shifted – expanded my creative boundaries – learning everyday on what #MOMLIFE is all about – and just enjoying what’s ahead of me.


this past month I celebrated my very first mother’s day.

Axel (aka Mookie) is the best sidekick and he made me A MOM. if you follow me on instagram, you can definitely see what a character he is. being a mom is honestly the best thing I’ve ever been (also, the hardest) and I wouldn’t change it for the world. it may sound very cliche, but it’s the truth. it was really exciting to be celebrated this past mother’s day and enjoy my family.


we hung out by the pool, bbq’d, played dominoes, drank wine and enjoyed plenty of laughs.

a big thanks to for sending me this amazing dress. I felt so beautiful, comfortable and soo happy to be wearing my old belt (which I hadn’t been able to wear since pre-pregnancy – score!) I paired it with sneakers, a leather wrap belt and some layered gold jewelry.




I wish I would’ve heard about this online shop while I was pregnant. They have some of the cutest Maternity clothing options and their prices are totally affordable, too! I also got this striped open shoulder mini dress to add to my summer wardrobe. It’s lightweight, airy and black and white (can’t go wrong with that).
