    Storm is now 7 months old. This was another busy month in our lives, as we wrapped up our time in New York and traveled to Denmark. As I'm writing this from the quiet of my mom's house in Denmark, our

  • A World of Food

    We started offering Storm solid foods a few days before he turned six months old. We've decided to go the route of baby-led weaning, which just means that you let the baby guide the process of weaning
