4th Trimester Sleep Resources with Sleep & The City

January 31, 2017


All us new moms want to get sleep, right? The one thing my husband said to me over and over again while I was pregnant (both times!) is we really need to focus on getting baby sleeping through the night as quickly as possible. Easier said than done, obviously. We've had totally different experiences with each of the girls and I resorted to a Sleep Consultant just recently for Hollyn.

Why?


Pretty in Pink

January 30, 2017


Remember that time I said I have an obsession with car seats? Well it's gotten worse. We have multiple cars and it's nice for us to have a set of car seats for each of the girls in each vehicle so when Maxi-Cosi launched their Mico Max 30 sweater knit collection... in PINK! I just had to get it in my hands. You all seemed to love it as much as I do from the comments on my instagram post yesterday!

Sending Love for Valentine's Day

January 27, 2017


We love Valentine's Day around here because it's always a fun excuse to break out the colorful (and terrible for you!) candy, glitter, paints and some cute Valentine grams to send to our neighbors, friends and family! Although these are teeny, it's a big way to show some love and simply that you're thinking about someone enough to throw something small in the mail.

Family Pictures!

January 24, 2017


We have our family pictures back and they're the first as a family of six (because Brutus)! As much as I wanted to do newborn pictures with Hollyn, it just didn't happen with schedules and simply being busy. That's partly due to me just jumping back into the swing of life like I didn't even have a baby and then I blinked and she's almost 3 months old.

I love TULA. You all have read this over time following my blog and that means I have to share an update I've made to my skin routine with a new item of theirs! This beautiful eye serum launched on Tuesday and it's as good as it sounds. Eye renewal serum with probiotic technology? Let me put it this way... my "I have a new baby and get little sleep" eyes don't even look tired, puffy or red!

Playhouse Refresh

January 11, 2017


When we moved into the new house it came with the most darling little playhouse in the backyard that needed some TLC. I was up for the challenge and determined to make it a cute little space for the girls to play in. My goal was to accomplish this back in September, shortly after we moved in but life happens and I was a pregnant whale then with having a newborn then and it was on hold until... last week. Kicking off 2017 great, right?! :)

Hollyn Grace | 2 Months

January 10, 2017


TWO MONTHS as of January 8th. That sure flew by. I don't feel like she's anything newborn lately because she's so dang chunky (12 pounds!) but I sure do love seeing her grow and develop and smile at us! She's been cooing and giving us big ol grins and it just melts me! Totally melts me.

Four Things That Make Mommy-ing Easier

January 9, 2017

It's been two months of three kids and I'm slowing finding my niche and routine with getting in and out of stores while running errands or quite simply living life. It's not an easy thing tackling to do lists and managing a household, feeding a marriage, staying connected at church and close to God while also making sure you're kids are happy and seeing how much their mama loves them.

I am no mama expert but I have found a few things that make being on the go nice and simple (or as simple as it can be with a tween, toddler and newborn) to get it done and back home before the monster kids come out. Let's chat through them...

Making the Sleep Transition

January 4, 2017


Well, we've made the switch! Hollyn is solely sleeping in her bedroom through the night and during nap times. It's always so nice getting a grunting little babe out of your room for better sleep but also terrifying because of all the risks that brings not having them at arms reach if something we're to happen.
