Family Tree:

Married to husband, Matt, and mom to Charlie, 6 months, and one spoiled cat, Gracie. The family lives in Davidson.

Get Real:

Being organized helps me think, but as a new mom, it’s impossible to have anything in place … it’s chaos!

“Dont You Dare:”

Everything he does right now is adorable, but usually just as I fall asleep, he wakes up and then doesn’t seem to want to nap during the day.

Parenting Rule No. 1:

Not many rules for an infant, but once we get a routine that works, we stick with it, because he thrives on consistency.

Fave Phrase:

“If I can sleep, you can sleep!” (We have a theme with sleeping).

Spill It:

It’s embarrassing taking him shopping and then spending an hour in the dressing room feeding him, as every sales person asks, “Is everything alright?”

Top Tip:

Even when you want to reclaim your home, never refuse help from family and friends — learn to give up some control.
