Adventures in Motherhood

I’m Alexandra, a first-time mom and full-time marketing professional at a funky tech startup. I live in Atlanta with my baby daddy, Bill, our daughter, Lily, and two crazy dogs.

When I’m not washing off binkies or making moves in the startup scene, you can probably find me attending some sort of fad exercise class or spending time outdoors with my family. Learning how to balance motherhood and a career can be challenging at times, but luckily for me, I’ve always been great at multitasking! 

Thank you for taking time out of your busy life to read about mine. You can keep up with my adventures by following me on Instagram or Twitter

Hi! I’m Kaleen, a photographer and mother of two (soon to be three). I live in Atlanta in a fixer-upper with a never ending list of renovation projects waiting to be finished. When I’m not helping my husband on the house, I’m making messes with my own kids, watching other people’s kids or photographing families. When I used to have more energy at the end of the day, I would spend my time cooking and knitting, but for now I’m just accumulating recipes and patterns on Pinterest.

My name is Lauren, and I am boo’d up for life with my favorite person, Matt. We live in Atlanta with my mini-me, Bellamy. For now, you can find me planning a million luxury vacations and searching for our first home! (Babies and studio lofts don’t mix for very long.) I love to cook when I keep up with regular grocery shopping, nosh at our favorite restaurants when I don’t, and sweat it out at Orange Theory Midtown.

Stay up-to-date with my journey by following me on Instagram and adding me on Facebook! Thanks for sharing in this incredible milestone with me!

Dad's Eye View

Stephen is husband to a wife he claims is way out of his league, and they have a baby girl who keeps them laughing every day (with Baby No. 2 on the way!). He watches “Planet Earth” almost every weekend and is confident he could live off nothing other than milk, cereal, and asparagus.

Despite a demanding job, he does his best to be involved at home by spending as much time with his daughter as possible and by changing all diapers on the weekends to make up for the ones he misses during the week. Since becoming a dad, words like “cute” and “adorable” have become a permanent part of his vocabulary, and he is not ashamed to use them.

Knocked Up

I’m Ginny Butler, a mother of three (soon to be four) living in the Salt Lake City area. I love being a mom and seeing the world through my children’s eyes. If you ever ask me how I’m feeling, my honest answer most days will be, “Tired!” But that doesn’t stop me from enjoying the beautiful outdoors here in the mountain west, taking trips whenever I get the chance, and planning little bits of fun into each day.

I’ve also had the honor of writing for P&N since 2008—best work family ever, and I still miss getting to see them all on the regular!

Hello! I’m Chantel, an editor here at P&N and a soon-to-be mama for the very first time. I am crazy in love with my little family of three (my husband, Lee, and I have a Frenchie named Fig, who—let’s face it—is basically our first kid), and I can’t wait to add a baby to our bunch come June.

Until then, I’ll just be over here nesting, seeing if I can still reach (or see) my toes, and waiting to feel my tiny bean move.
