Dear Moms, Get your picture taken. Post a selfie. Celebrate yourself. Don’t think of it as being conceited, or worry about not looking perfect. You’re a mom, and therefore you’re badass bitch. Leave some photographic evidence for your kids (and you). Love, Cara
Despite several attempts at getting Noni to attach herself to a lovey, her preferred thing to cuddle while she sleeps is a second soother. One for her mouth and one to hold. If she’s really struggling to sleep she needs one for each hand. 🙃 What weird sleeping quirks does your kid have? #noninaps
I keep thinking we’ve hit peek Noni cuteness, but it just keeps getting better and better. When does their cute and fun factor plateau? Is it when they start saying “no”? Puberty? Or will Noni follow in her mother’s foot steps and be fabulous well into her 30s? 💁🏼♀️
If you’re new around here: Hi, I’m Cara, and I have a list of mental illnesses. My anxiety and depression always gets worse the day the clocks go back. Losing sunlight really affects me. But this kid is a literal ray of sunshine and yesterday was a little easier to handle than it has been the last few years. Does anyone else get SAD, or feel increased depression and anxiety over the winter?
Her black @kytebaby pajamas really show off her lashes and curls. 💁🏼♀️ #noninaps
Breast feeding was not the magical bonding experience I wanted it to be. When it became clear I wasn’t going to be able to nurse Noni I searched for something else that could make me feel that special connection I felt I was missing out on. Baby wearing ended up becoming that for me. I’ve worn Noni in wraps, ring slings, structured carriers, and most recently our @lovesakurabloom onbuhimo. Noni’s over 20lbs and is fiercely independent, but her and I are both happy and comfortable in the #sakurabloomonbuhimo ! #lovesakurabloom
