Purely out of curiosity (and so i don’t feel as bad about myself), what number cup of coffee are you on today? Because I’m on 3. 😬
I'm writing a note to my past new-mom self, knowing what I know now: Time goes by too fast, but sometimes you will wish it would speed up. That is normal. You will feel incredible joy, but you will also cry a lot. Don't be afraid to ask for help. When you see your baby learn something new you will swell with pride, but other times you will feel like you've failed. You haven't. You will love spending time with your baby, but sometimes you will need space. Call a sitter. Some days you look like dynamite but on others you will realize you haven't washed your hair in a week. You are still beautiful. You will feel like you know it all one minute but the next you will have a million questions. Google is great, but doctors and other people who have parented are better. Love your kid but love yourself too. You got this. #sharetheeverymom #mamastakenote #atruelookatmotherhood
I miss the squishy baby phase, but I’m so excited to watch our little boy cruise around the lake house this year. I get to watch all of my favorite things about summer (hopefully) become his favorite things, and I Just. Can’t. Wait. 🏊🏻♀️🎣🚤
If we ever have another baby, do NOT let me get away with NOT having one of my friends do a fresh48 session for us. TBH all we have from the hospital are cell phone photos - and i love them, but there are hardly any photos of Cody and I together with baby Cole, and I do wish we had more (especially more non-selfie photos). If you are thinking of hiring someone for a fresh48 session, DO IT. I Can’t stress enough how badly you are going to want to treasure this time. It goes by way too fast. 😭💕
I really like this person on the left, and am pretty lucky to do life with him (he’s gonna hate this caption, but oh well 😉). Favorite travel buddy 7 years running.
The non stop sickness that has plagued our house this winter has me eating all of the vitamin c I possible can. Is this just what happens when you have kids? PS I’ve been loving my google home mini for things like setting reminders to buy fruit (esp when i use a bunch of it just for a photo 😜), setting timers while cooking (our stove doesn’t have a timer), and asking it how many days till spring (there are 12, in case you’re wondering). #giftfromgoogle #googlehome @madebygoogle
