Such an LA day with one of my favorite people @neuhaus. I believe he is eating spelt porridge. Yes, that’s a thing. And it was good. I had some sort of olive oil poached chicken and a very pretty salad.
Crawling into Friday like...
So many Toni Morrison quotes to share today. Many are meditations on theme of self actualization and breaking free of the bonds society casts upon us and the bonds we create for ourselves. Here’s one of my favorites. #riptonimorrison
I’ve joked more than once these past 10 months that I should do a book on “The Places I have Pumped.” On a plane? Yep. On a train? Uh-huh. Driving down Sunset Blvd? The 110 Freeway? The 118? Yep, yep, yep. It’s the first thing I do when I wake up and the last thing I do before bed. I’ve pumped or nursed on the side of the trail, the side of the road, the side of my house. I’ve pumped or nursed while I was on the phone and on the radio— LIVE! (Just ask @jorgesedanoespn from @espnlosangeles !) There’s been a lot of posts for World Breastfeeding Week showing women nursing their babies in an effort to normalize the practice. I’m so wholly supportive of that. And every way that women go about feeding their babies, whether that’s breastfeeding or formula. I thought I’d go a little different way with my post though and bring a little attention to the folks out there who’ve helped make it a little easier for working moms like me to pump while I’m away from my son. These nursing pods are a lifesaver. I used this one from @mamava_vt in the Oakland airport several times when I was up north, covering the Warriors. I used the pod inside the Warriors practice facility many times before and after SportsCenter hits. I pumped in airplane bathrooms, thanks to the flight attendants who would make me feel welcome by explaining to other passengers why I was taking 10 minutes in there. Or would lend me ice to put in my travel cooler. I have all sorts of stories about clueless TSA workers who tore apart my cooler carefully packed with breast milk. But I also have great stories about kind, well-informed TSA workers who knew how to inspect the liquid gold safely and with respect. Breastfeeding has been a huge part of my life with Daniel and something I’ve come to really value. It meant a lot to me when someone would help make that even a little easier. People like @rachel_nichols and @jennydialcreech who taught me how to pump at work and ship milk home. Or my lactation consultant @amandaandmax or my understanding producers @h_guy @mikepearsonla @bergmangreg @squirreldtraveler @beth.faber and editor @cdaglas —who got why I needed to sneak away sometimes. #worldbreastfeeding
Damn, I thought this was a peach 🍑!
It’s that time of year!
The best GIF for everything
Sometimes your Twitter feed seems like it’s got something to say
This little man is 8 months old today and he’s already got that look
Sun’s out, 💪 out! (Gotta work on those tan lines, son)
Baby shark is out 💤
I know who sits on the Iron Throne. After escaping from Mereen, I just straight up claimed it. #gameofthrones
Mommy’s home from the road! #photoshootfriday
A few years ago, when I was thinking of having kids and wondering how I would ever pull that off, my own mother @jeanetteshelburne told me, “I’m going to be there for you, MoMo.” I was still scared, but somehow her strength helped me to find mine. And now we have this wonderful new light in our lives.
According to @nevinbarich Daniel ordered this shirt for himself and bought me flowers this morning. The kid is advanced for 7 months!
This kid can giggle his way out of anything
Remember the big wildfire we had this fall? Everything is back and blooming again
Six months old already a pro in front of the camera.
So much swag
My brother is and always has been a total whiz kid. Tonight he’s throwing down on JEOPARDY!
Finally some real food after 6 months of nothing but milk!
Kids’ got that blue steel look down
I’m not saying my baby is cuter than anyone else’s baby. But ... I think these pictures speak for themselves ❤️
You probably think this song is about you...
I know son, car rides always put me to sleep too
My husband thinks I’m ordering too much on Amazon Prime lately. I tell him to pretend that all these boxes are presents!
I really can’t tell you how much better I look than I feel today in this photo with the fabulous hair stylist @tasha_muah before @athonespn. At 36 weeks, there’s not much that’s easy right now except ordering way too many things on Amazon Prime as I nest. But you’d never know it after these ladies get done working their magic. Thx @fabiolamercadobeauty @anyabrew @makeupartistgaby @livscanlan @abreannastyles @makeup_by_leonor @beautyxsophierose and everyone in the room I don’t remember IG handles for. 👄
When I was a kid my parents used to take me up to Rock Creek Lake in the Sierras. We’d go hiking and fishing with my cousins. I wanted the baby’s nursery to look like one of the happiest places from my childhood. Here’s what the talented @wallmuralsbycolette came up with! Next picture is my badass mom @jeanetteshelburne hiking with me up in the Sierras when I was about 1, which inspired the scene.
Dinner at our favorite Central Coast spot.
