best one-piece swimsuits for moms 2017

Schools are getting out and summer is almost here! With the temperatures rising and kids out of school, it’s that time of the year when you will be spending more of your time–and the kids’ time–at the local splash pad or by the pool. So long are the days when you could relax poolside with no worries and a glass of rosé in your hand. Now you have to worry about if the baby’s okay, are the kids safe, do they have enough sunblock on, picking things up–including children–and making sure that you have everything they need with you in your bag(s).

Happy hump day! Or should I say, bump day. 😉 Today is Baby Chick’s two year anniversary, guys! It’s nuts to think that two years ago today we launched this site. We worked so hard for our launch and website reveal, and now we have an even bigger announcement to reveal today. As you might have seen, we announced our pregnancy two months ago and we have been anxiously waiting to find out whether we are having a girl or a boy. This is our first baby and I just couldn’t wait any longer to find out the gender. Hats off to all of you parents…

The Perfect Maternity Photography Session

Tuesday, June 7, 2016 By Jessica Tomes

The husband and I haven’t had the most “traditional” relationship. At least according to most people’s standards. But we aren’t most people; and it works for us. We met on a blind date, and were married (read: eloped) at the County Courthouse six months later. It was a whirlwind, head-over-heels kind of romance. And anyone who knows us, can tell you, this is a pretty accurate description of how we typically do life together. We renewed our vows in a private ceremony, on a beautiful beach in Antigua — during our honeymoon — a few months after that. So we…
