The Price of Your Motherhood

the-price-of-your-motherhood

What were you like before you had a child or started trying to get pregnant? I can distinctly remember being fun, flirty, and outgoing. I didn’t know what anxiety was like. My mom had told me she had struggled with anxiety some, and I literally didn’t even know what it was. I thought I did, because I felt nervous before big tests or had a knot in my stomach if someone was upset with me (and that still happens). Was that anxiety? Maybe slightly, but nothing like I’ve experienced since having children. I just recently started reading…

Must Haves for Baby

must-haves-for-baby

I’d like to think I kind of knew what someone needed for a baby once you welcome them into the world. Now that I’ve had two, I have a grasp on what’s necessary and what you an do without for at least the first 6 months.  The first thing is a complete nursery. no need to have it completed! Even though, I HAD to have both nurseries completed before the girls came home. It’s just a fun part of nesting and preparing yourself for this new little human being that’ll be taking up space in…

Blush is the New Black

I’m seeing blush everywhere this season! It’s everyone’s favorite shoe, top, pair of pants, accessory, and bag. And I have to say…I’m in that crowd. It’s such a sweet color and it’s a great neutral. Blush is such a nice change from the winter black (not that spring is taking my black from me), and a better transition color than just tan.I can’t think of one skin tone that it doesn’t compliment and look good on. And this zipper blouse from Pink Blush is a great staple piece to start…

When I first had Hallen, I was super nervous to nurse in public. I mean…when you’re a first time mom, you never know what the heck you’re doing. You especially don’t know what you’re doing when you’re trying to hide under a cover, lift your shirt up discretely, and make your newborn with a bobble head try to nurse. I had so much anxiety! I don’t think I nursed in public for AT LEAST two months. A couple months in, I found my favorite thing ever! The Undercover Mama tank. I bought three…

So, I feel like I need to take a step back from my last post, and apologize. From comments that I received, even from friends, it felt like I made some of you need to defend yourselves with your growing families. That’s definitely NOT what I intended to do. I didn’t ever intend to make you feel bad if you had a rough transition from one to two children. I know it can be rough! A few of my friends said it correctly…we just need to be there for each other as women…empowering each other, and…

First Couple Weeks Home

Going from a family of three to four has definitely been a transition, but not the type of transition that I expected. Everyone told me that one to two kids was going to be the biggest shock. I got so many people telling me that it was going to be so hard and the “oh you just wait. You have it easy now with one!” That one always irked me just a little bit, I’m not going to lie. Why do you feel like you need to trample on my dreams of a growing family? Yes, tell me truths…

Multi Purpose Cover

One of my favorite new things that we’ve gotten for Hazel is our Trendy Cover from Trendy Treehouse. I was able to customize the fabrics from their big selection, and make it something that I love. Right now, I’m using it as a carseat cover and a nursing cover.These were some of my first few days home, so it was a no makeup kind of week, but my nursing game is definitely strong! I’m much more confident this time around, and I love this nursing cover. Its soft material, and it doesn’t make me hot…

Hazel Marigold

hazel-marigold

The past five days have been been a new change of pace and a new type of love I always knew I wanted, but hadn’t experienced before! I’ve known since I was probably five years old that I wanted lots of babies, and that my calling was to be a mother. And here I sit five days after bringing our second daughter into this crazy world, and I know we still aren’t finished. Little Hazel has filled our hearts with more love than I thought was possible, and makes Kevin and I even more excited to have…
