New? Not sure, but these refillable baby food pouches look awesome!
My post partum check-up with my midwife went well. Luckily this labor, though long, was much kinder on my body, which made my visit pretty quick!
Thank you, little man.
I wrote a thank you note to my beloved midwife to thank her for making my entire experience, from day one, so wonderful. She was surprised to get it, which surprised me - everyone should thank their provider. They are such a huge part of the whole process.
Natural Product recommendations…
When I first was pregnant with Gray, I was determined to find a good natural deodorant. I think I literally tried then all…Jason’s, Toms, those weird crystal rocks.
None of them worked.
But then I found Lavanila, and it was love. It works well, smells great, and is all natural.
It’s one of my favorite ‘green’ product finds, that I can’t recommend highly enough.
We have a good nightly routine that Parker more often than not complies with.
I feed him and get to him sleep downstairs, and then I head to bed. I get to brush my teeth and wash my face using TWO hands, and can climb into bed totally unencumbered by a sweet little man.
I love him so much, but it’s amazing how liberating it feels to walk upstairs without him, after basically holding him all day.
Though he’d probably stay asleep if I brought him up with me and put him into his co-sleeper, this makes a big difference. I get a few minutes on my own, and my first stretch of sleep is selfishly mine.
When he’s in our room, I’m so hyper-aware of his every movement, breath and physical need that it makes for very light sleep for me.
This way whether its for 30 minutes or three hours, I get some time to work and a chunk of deep sleep that helps carry me through the rest of the night’s shenanigans with little Parker.
Okay, enough writing. Must sleep before the little guy wakes up to eat.
I totally understand…in those last few weeks I was overly aware of every name out there. In movies, in meetings, on the blogs I read…everywhere!
Hope you’re feeling well, and congrats!
Thank you!! No words for how much I love these photos, AND these boys!!
Gray is quickly turning into a little Jackson, thick dark hair and all. Parker is truly a mini Gray…the moment they handed him to me I was so shocked that it was a boy, and that it was a mini ‘Bundle’!!
Hope you’re feeling well!
This made me laugh so hard! It’s impossible to ever really be able to explain what a contraction feels like. But I love that these two Dads got a taste of what it’s like.
