Leaving the House with Baby Made Easier Thanks to Binxy Baby

Does anyone actually go into motherhood full prepared? I’m pretty the answer is a resounding no. But I think there are some aspects of being a parent that we are more or less prepared for. There are a lot of areas I felt under prepared for but the top three of those? 1. How much I would question myself. 2. How hard breastfeeding would be. 3. How hard it would be to leave the house with a baby.

Thank You- Printable Post Card

Have you ever heard that the word love is overused and therefore it looses a little bit of its significance? Saying I love a top I just bought dulls the word a bit when I say I love my husband. While I truly do love my husband I can’t say I truly “love” the top but I do like it a lot. I think the same goes a bit for the word thank you. Sometimes it just gets toss out there.  Continue reading

My Body Is Still Not My Own After Pregnancy

During pregnancy we sacrifice our bodies for our babies. I did so with a joyful heart, I loved feeling my little girl wiggle about (although time may have faded just how bad my swelling was!). However, a part of me was glad I was going to get my body “back”. I’m not talking about working out to try and look like my pre-pregnancy self. I actually was very fortunate and I pretty much went right back down (breastfeeding perk!). What I was looking forward to was not having a baby attached to me any longer. Ha, I was so wrong there!

Lessons in Quilt Making

I can’t believe it but I actually made a quilt! I’ve wanted to make one probably since around 2014. No idea why, I just always thought it would be neat to make one. There’s just something cozy about a homemade quilt. This is not a tutorial by the way because when I say I pretty much had no idea what I was doing, I mean it. A good friend of mine has a mother-in-law who quilts and she showed her how to make one. Once she had made one I had her show me how and then pretty much text her for every step as I was making it! Bless you Lexi! But I actually got more than I bargained for with this project of mine.

I Wish You Would Sleep in Your Crib

Some parents opt from the get go to co-sleep and/or bed share, that parent was not me. I knew from day one I wanted Cora Beth to sleep in her crib. Even if I did have to get out of bed and stumble into her room every 2 hours! Honestly, her sleeping in her crib went great! She was even sleeping through the night (all the praise hands!) until she hit about 5 months….

Baby and Budget Friendly Diapers

Mamas I finally found it! The diaper that is both easy on my baby’s bottom and my bank account! While I was pregnant I read about all the harmful chemicals in so many household and skin care products including diapers and wipes. I made sure all of Cora Beth’s shampoo, soaps, lotions, and diaper creams were free of the harmful chemicals. I even bought her an organic mattress and mattress cover. But for some reason I stuck with a big name brand diapers and wipes.

Beautiful and Unique Watch for Father's Day Gift

 Time is such a funny thing, isn’t it? You’re always simultaneously wanting it to speed up and slow down. At least that’s how’s it’s been for me these past 6 months.
