I don’t know about you but I hate when the kids get toys! Birthday, Christmas, just because grandma and grandpa felt like they needed it. They love getting them and after about a month, they’re broken, pieces are missing, and they are not played with again. Then they just sit there…in the toy box…not being played with. Toys end up getting pulled out and left on the floor because nobody wants to play with them and I end up having to clean up this insane mess that wasn’t even used! It’s just a huge cycle that I hate having to go through.
Happiest of Fridays my friends!!! In honor of today being the first day of fall I thought I would round up some things I am loving and just gushing over for this Fall season! You can never go wrong with some basic knits that are a staple in everyones closest but I did find some shoes, bags, and jewelry that I can’t take my eyes off of. You know I’ve already got an order coming to me in the mail.
I know it’s Tuesday and I’m just getting this up because well….I don’t even know where Monday went! It’s like I blinked and woke up this morning and it’s now Tuesday! So for this Mom Monday/Tuesday this sweet mama of 3 sent me this 5-in-1 multi-use infant carseat cover and I love it! You can follow her IG here to see what other things she has going on!
Another month down in the books. I can’t believe we’re already in September!!! The holiday season is approaching and I couldn’t be more excited! Even though Arizona is still so hot and it usually doesn’t start to cool down until late October. You can call me basic if you want, I love me some PSL and pretty much pumpkin everything! Have you seen that they have a Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte!!!!! I’m dying a to try this. I know this is going up later in the month but better late then never right!?
Have you lost all the baby weight yet?
10 times out 10 after you have a baby you still look like you’re pregnant. Just because the baby came out doesn’t mean all of the weight did too. It took nine months to grow the baby and they say it takes nine months to take it off. And for the record, nursing a baby turns you into a ravenous beast. I can pretty much eat double my weight in food. So that’s not really helping me drop the weight either.
I’m finally 37 weeks and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. The pregnancy finish line is creeping up on me. I feel like this was the fastest pregnancy I’ve ever had and I’m not sure I’m 100% ready for it to end. I say this every time I’m about to have a baby but the miracle of pregnancy and knowing that you are growing an actual human being that could potentially change the world one day just blows my mind. It’s so something I’m so proud and scared of at the same time.
I will state this now, I am not a breastfeeding expert by any means. I really struggled the first month with breastfeeding Kellan but it was something I was determined to do and we went six months before he self weened. We learned that he was cutting a tooth them and was not showing interest in nursing because of that. Knox, I nursed for 8 months and boy was I glad when it was over. He cut his teeth and became a biter, which I was not happy about! In my combined 14 months of nursing here are a few things that I learned and items I already have ready to go for our newest baby boy. I have no goal set in mind. We will just be taking it a day at a time in hopes that everything works out for us.
