How to be an Outdoorsy Mom with a Baby

To some, this might be the woman who hunts, forages, and grows all her own food. It could be the bad mamba jam who hikes 8-plus miles into the woods, pitches a tent and rocks her babe to sleep under the stars.

And while these insanely impressive women are definitely outdoorsy moms — I don’t believe they’re the only ones.

Raising a Baby with a Rottweiler

Around here, big is just the way we do things. Garrett and I are big people, with a big baby and a big dog.

A really big dog in fact. A 111-pound Rottweiler with a head that comes up to my waist and a mouth that devours cookies like they never existed.

In short, we couldn’t have asked for a better family pet.
