My mom likes to call me a hermit, I prefer the term “homebody.” No place we’d rather be, barefoot at home. 🤦🏼♀️ It might surprise you, but I’m a big introvert, I could go a week without leaving the house and be cool. Drew, on the other hand, could talk to a wall (and enjoy it!) 🤪 Are you an introvert or an extrovert? I’m doing a podcast episode all about this soon!

ONE MONTH?!? Swipe 👉🏼 to see our never-before-shared home videos of the day we met our baby girl! ✨ It took us three long, slow years to get to this point and now we just experienced the fastest month of our lives. ✨ I’m recapping it all on the blog: products we can’t live without, our secrets to sleep, where we buy her cute clothes, what’s surprised us the most and photos from Conley’s first month of life. ✨ Head to the link in my bio for the full recap!

When the baby sleeps... mama builds her empire. I’m a naptime warrior! Anyone else? ✨ It’s been a month of snuggles, figuring out feeding, stealing naps, and soaking in every ounce with our baby girl, but I’ll be honest: I’ve missed working. When you love what you do, it’s so easy to love working! 🙋🏼 I wasn’t sure what maternity leave would look like for me, I worked so far ahead and blocked off three months of zero obligations! The way I prepared means I never HAVE to log in, but working, even for just an hour a day, makes me feel connected to my mission, excited about creating, and accomplished (but really, keeping this baby fed and happy is my best accomplishment to date!) 👶🏻 My business always felt like my first baby and what I’ve managed to build is now giving us a life of freedom to both be home with our girl and the best part? My business is running while we rest. I want my baby girl to see her mama working hard to impact the world and grow a business that empowers others toward that same freedom! 📣 The #1 we are driving profits in my business while I’m on leave is through my email list and last week on the @goaldiggerpodcast I shared how just 3 simple emails brought in $153,000! Tomorrow’s show is a total game changer about email lists! Go to the link in my profile, pick where you’ll tune in and subscribe so you don’t miss it! There’s also episodes about how I batch work and how I prepared for maternity leave, so enjoy! 🎧 Have any questions about maternity leave? Comment below and I’ll do my best to answer! Oh and those curtains are knotted because that cute dog on the couch likes to lift his leg on them. #keepingitreal #goaldiggerpodcast #momlife #thekutchercasa
I WAS AFRAID TO HAVE A BABY. So much so, I recorded an entire podcast episode about my fears two years ago... 🙋🏼 I wasn’t a maternal woman, I loved work so much, I enjoyed every ounce of freedom, I wanted Drew to myself, I didn’t want to “ruin” my body and required 10 hours of sleep a night... there were so many reasons why I worried about becoming a mom and yet this yearning came on, 5 years into marriage after we vowed we’d never have kids. 🌈 This past month of motherhood squashed so many of those fears. I was surprised by how I naturally loved her and loved Drew even more as he became a dad. I was shocked that I felt healthy and strong and admired my changed, softer body for all that it’s done. I learned that my baby didn’t take me away from my business and that my drive to work hard and make bigger impact didn’t fade away... 🙏🏼 I want to address the women out there who aren’t sure they ever want children, who don’t feel naturally maternal, who’s “ovaries” never hurt for a baby, who are career driven, who question if they really are cut out to be a mom, or if they’ll be any good at it: you are not broken, it’s okay, you are more than capable, and your heart has the capacity of expanding in ways you never knew. ❤️ Maybe it’s because we waited three long years or we prepared for the worst but I realized those fears were taking up space that could have been filled with dreams. Being a mom is the BEST thing I’ve ever done and it’s stretched me in new ways. Motherhood is forcing me to morph into a new version of myself, one I never imagined myself becoming. ✨ Maybe it’s time to record an episode called, “Why I shouldn’t have been afraid to have a baby.” And for those who never want a baby, your life is no less meaningful or magical... good for you, you are not less of a woman, just sleep in extra for me, okay?
Forever committed to kissing her face every chance I get, posting her farts on Instagram, singing off key lullabies, telling her about all the strangers on the internet who love her and making her outfits match mine. I hope she’s ready for all of it. 🤦🏼♀️ Comment below with what you think Conley is thinking! #squadgoals #momlife #myeyebrowsneedtrimming

Do you ever see a product endorsed by someone and wonder: but did they really use it? Does it really work? I'd bet you've thought those things a million times while scrolling... in fact, y’all send messages almost daily about the @avawomen bracelet. 🙋🏼 Did you know that I reached out to them because I was curious and I told them I wouldn't endorse it unless it worked for me? Or that I tested it against other methods to really see if it was accurate? Or that I used it for months before I ever told a soul? Well, a few months into using my fertility tracking bracelet, we were blessed with a positive pregnancy test that helped us meet our little miracle babe. 👶🏻 You wear the bracelet at night and it helps track health parameters that will help you find your fertile window and get to know your body and cycle better. No more needing to take your temperature or pee on sticks (both things that stressed me out.) You wear Ava when you sleep and sync when you wake up. It saved me stress and made me excited to check in on my body each morning. 🙌🏻 I've shared it with friends, family, and YOU because it truly was a tool that I used while trying to conceive and continue to use it to track my body and the changes it's going through. So if you message me asking, Does it reallllly work? The answer is: YES. Use code: JENNA30 for $30 off at avawomen.com! #avapartner #ad #babykutch
Just another MAGIC Monday! ✨ Last night Drew said, “Isn’t it awesome to have a life where you don’t dread Monday’s?” The answer is: yes! But really, we’ve spent most of the day in bed and we aren’t complaining. #bigyawns #sendcoffee #worthit
Feel like your feed is all weddings and babies? My heart breaks a little every time I post a photo of her... I didn’t forget about you. ✨ Because I know a lot of you are out there wanting this. I was in your shoes for three hard years and maybe when you see these, you think that I’m “over it” or I’ve forgotten what it’s like to have that unanswered yearning in your heart or how it really feels to navigate those hard seasons. ✨ I shared this months ago and it’s even more true today. “I want to recognize all of the women and couples out there who are yearning for a baby, who have that ache, who are waiting for their time, your time is coming. While I know these words may fall on deaf ears, walking the road we’ve walked has taught me so much empathy and compassion for those fighting to grow their family. ✨ So many sisters who are struggling took me in with open arms, shared their stories, helped me grieve, talked me through those pits, and gave me hope. You are my heroes, you are warriors, there IS a plan for you. We hope that sharing our baby girl gives you hope and strengthens your faith, that it doesn’t add to your pain.” ✨ I can promise you that you are not forgotten by us and that we are savoring these moments we fought so hard for. It was ALL worth it. Photo by: @angelarosegonzalez | Makeup by: @derick_cich
This photo almost didn’t happen... ❌ Yesterday we were at my parents house and I was so excited to get a photo of Conley with all her grandparents! The photographer in me was dying over this “Narnia” scene on my parents driveway and the warm weather. ❄️ My mom asked if we wanted a photo of the three of us and I laughed and said “no” because I’m in the same yoga pants I’ve worn for three days, I’ve got extra baby weight, no make up, dry shampooed hair, and a maternity sweater that isn’t so flattering and has spit up on it. I was supposed to be the photographer, not the subject. 🤦🏼♀️ But then, I remembered my baby girl and I don’t want her to grow up thinking you only show up when it’s perfect or when you’re ready or when it all looks good... because yesterday? It FELT good. The fresh air, the people we love, our baby girl. 🙏🏼 Don’t avoid documenting your life because it’s not perfect. Don’t let your children grow up not seeing you because you’re avoiding the camera until you feel beautiful. Don’t shy away from moments because you don’t feel “Instagram worthy.” ✨ I’m thankful my mom turned the camera on us, because Conley’s only going to be tiny for awhile and these moments are worth remembering... so are yours. Take the damn photo, okay? This feed is my legacy and this moment belongs here.
