We just set up an awesome playroom for the kids. They love it and we love it. Today however, I am living a shitty nightmare. Shit. Everywhere.
I am absolutely honored to have been chosen by LÍLLÉbaby for their 2016 #LILLEloveletters Series. Throughout the year, real families have been documenting their lives, special moments and babywearing experiences and sharing them. Now it’s my turn.
I’m going to be honest. Breastfeeding is HARD. I want to pass along my experiences so that on the hardest day when you want to give up, you can look at this and reassure yourself that you CAN do it! Here are some things that will help!
I want to start by saying that I may or may not have a problem. As in, I may have an obsession with baby carriers. With that being said, I’ve always been super intimidated by ring slings and wraps.
This week is a big week for our family. This past weekend Landon got baptized and we celebrated Leilani’s birthday a bit early since family was in town. Tomorrow we will officially have a 2 month old and in exactly one week, we will have a 2 year old!!! But that’s not why […]
Ok, maybe not my WORST nightmare, but pretty damn close. I have to be dairy free. Ugh! Do you know how hard it is to go completely dairy free, just like that? No milk, ice cream, butter, sour cream, yogurt, CHEESE?? Try it sometime. Or don’t. It’s pure torture.
It has taken forever for me to get this finished, but here it is, Landon’s birth story. It’s not easy to feel like there is no end to a pregnancy, but finally at 40 weeks and 3 days, we got to meet our little man. And oh what a blessing he is!
Well, hopefully this will be the final blog post of this pregnancy, otherwise I may go insane. This little boy has been baking for an entire 40 weeks. That is 2 more weeks longer than I was pregnant with Leilani and thankfully I am still able to feel my hands and see my ankles, which were […]
Well there I am – 39 weeks pregnant (aka Bitchy). Don’t let my smile fool you. I’m so crabby at this point. This is the most pregnant I have ever been since I went into labor at 38 weeks with Leilani. That pregnancy was terrible towards the end with swelling, a pinched nerve, having to sleep […]
Today I will celebrate Leilani for the person she is and will become someday. And if you’ve met her, you know she is one spunky adorable little girl that lights up a room with her smile and her laughter. I will also celebrate the people in our lives that have accepted her and are teaching their children and families the love and compassion and acceptance of others. Those people are true advocates for Leilani just as much as we try to be! Thank you 🙂 and Happy World Down Syndrome Day! Spread the word!
