I love it when you find a perfect LBD that you know will become your go-to dress for any occasion. That is how I felt when I slipped into this LBD from designer Yoana Baraschi. The woven fabric creates a flattering silhouette and a flirty structured skirt with just the right amount of texture. I also love the shape in the bright orange and white versions!

We are doing Baby-Led Weaning with him. Basically, the idea behind Baby-Led Weaning (BLW) is that babies start on solids from the start, no puree or spoon-feeding. In short, the main benefits are as follows:
- The baby will develop new abilities, including hand-eye coördination and chewing that doesn’t come from being spoon fed puree.
- The baby will learn to love a variety of foods and to enjoy mealtimes since they are eating ‘adult’ food from day one. No bland baby food or rice cereal.
- The baby learns to participate in family meals right from the start.
- As you are preparing new foods for yourself, the baby can experiment with new foods at his or her own pace.
Our plan is to start out with only veggies and then gradually start incorporating some fruit and whole grains. We will add new foods every 3 days to make sure he doesn’t have any allergies. We plan to add in squash, green beans and sweet potatoes next (per a friend’s recommendation).
Once you have tested a few foods, there is a cookbook with recipes that are appropriate for the baby and for the family so Mom (or Dad) only has to make one meal for the whole family. No special baby food needed.
Did anyone else try this? I would LOVE to hear your experience in the comments below! Did you buy the cookbook, is it worth it? Any good blogs out there to read for recipe ideas?
A huge thank you to Stokke for the Stokke Steps, Knox loves it and it is so easy to clean! Not to mention I love how it looks with the rest of our furniture. (You know, the important stuff.)

Knox and I met FMK in Central Park last night for a rare treat. With it staying light out longer we took advantage of an evening stroll before we all headed back home together for dinner and bedtime.
These jeans are a recent purchase for spring. They are so different from all the other jeans I own, but I am loving them for spring / summer! I was searching for the perfect pair with a higher rise waist and a distressed knee that hit just above my ankles… check, check & check!
