Jillian Harris - Leo Eating Solids

I’ve been getting lots of questions from everyone on our experience (so far) with introducing solids into Leo’s diet and while I’ve been meaning to share this blog with you for a while now I wanted to wait it out so I could get a better feel for what was working and what wasn’t working for us! I finally feel as …

Jillian HarrisBaby, Fashion, Jill's Style, Spring, Trends3 Comments

Good morning everyone!! Another Saturday means another glimpse into my closet! However, I must admit I’m a little peeved about all of this flippin’ white stuff still on the ground but I’ve decided I’m not going to let that get in my way anymore when it comes to welcoming spring into my wardrobe. I’m officially busting out the sandals (a …

Jillian HarrisBaby37 Comments

I have to admit, I used to LOVE sick days as a kid. My BFF Karissa and I would always TRY to get sick together so we could go to each other’s houses and play ‘get better’ together … but something tells me Leo’s first sick day won’t be as fun. Other than the fact that I will be able …

The Work Pump Balance

Jillian HarrisBaby, Life30 Comments

I promised myself when I got pregnant (knowing I would only have a few months off at best) that I wouldn’t force anything post baby and would do whatever made our life easier. I wanted to mitigate stress and didn’t want unnecessary mom guilt.  That meant breastfeeding and supplementing with formula. Whatever happened happened. But when Leo was born there was …

I can’t tell you enough how much I am LOVING spending time with my little family this fall. It’s almost like nothing else matters anymore … almost.

Leo’s First Halloween

Jillian HarrisBaby, Fashion, Life, My Heart10 Comments

Since it’s Leo’s first Halloween I have been adamant since day one that I wanted him to be a lion. I was originally going to be Dorothy but then I found a dog costume for Nacho instead and it fit him perfectly! I of course procrastinated and I couldn’t find a lion costume for Leo that fit him properly … …

Fall is one of my FAVOURITE times of year to shop. Nothing beats cozy sweaters and leggings … especially if you’re a new mama like me. BUT that also goes for Leo … I am DYING over how cute all of the baby items are this season. I mean the summer items were cute too … but the cable knit …

For those of you that are always asking about where I grocery shop and WHAT  is in my grocery bag, look no further. I have been shopping exclusively at Nature’s Fare Markets for almost a year now.

Baby Gadget Must Haves

Jillian HarrisBaby2 Comments

This blog should technically be written by Justin as he is the tech guru in our family (and I MAY or may not have asked him for his help with this round up lol). As soon as we found out we were pregnant one of the first things he did was started researching about the top of the line gadgets …

Diaper Bag Essentials

Jillian HarrisBaby, Jill's Style, Life11 Comments

As I was cautioned many times in the past … once you have a child, your needs take the back burner and it becomes all about the baby! Well, isn’t that the truth (for the most part, anyway lol)!! Which is why instead of sharing my ‘Wardrobe Essentials’ today, I’m going to be sharing my diaper bag essentials and all of …

yawning-leo-star-swaddle-blanket

Before Leo was born, I did a lot of research on how to get the baby to sleep. I was a little nervous about how much sleep I was going to get and I didn’t want to be so exhausted that I couldn’t enjoy his newborn days. I needed a couple (or a couple hundred) tricks up my sleeve incase …
