  • πŸ’«New PostπŸ’« I'm over on the blog talking about the top 10 reasons to switch to cloth diapers TODAY! One of those reasons is that you can try cloth diapers with NO RISK and a money back guarantee through @littlelambnappies! Yep, try them out for six weeks and if they aren't for you, then send them back. Now you have NO EXCUSE not to try them out! They are a family run business and I adore their fun designs and bamboo diapers that are amazing for heavy wetters! Now get over to the blog and let me know what I should add to the list!
  • Summer and flowers and sweet baby cheeks. I love that I get to raise this sweet babe using essential oils and understanding nature and the value of different plants. He already knows what oils are and where they go and that makes me feel like I'm doing something right. I hope that he continues to go against the grain and live a chemical free lifestyle and I'm only sad I wasn't taught how to use them properly sooner!! Also, How cute is this romper from @freya_lillie_??
  • Confession Time: I'm totally panicking about having another baby. I sit up at night wondering how my heart will grow to love another little person like I love Hudson. I think about how Hudson will adapt to having a new baby in the house. I even question my ability to be a mother of two. I think that as moms we naturally feel so much pressure to make the right decisions and be the best influence and raise amazing kids that we forget that perfection is unattainable. I am not perfect. I need to learn to accept help with Grace. I need to be more patient. I need to learn some breathing techniques (seriously). But one thing I do know is that God gave me these babies because he knows that I am capable. He gave me these little ones and no one else and for that I am so grateful. So 25 weeks today and being thankful and open and living with grace because as moms that's what it's all about, right? What are/were your biggest fears about having a second baby and what is the reality?
  • Did you know it's real nappy week?? Aka my favorite week of the year because I get to try to convince you to switch to cloth diapers! I have always used cloth and am especially a fan of these super soft bamboo bad boys from @littlelambnappies! Have you ever thought of switching but didn't know how or were just not sure if it was right for our family? Little lamb nappies takes out the fear in switching and let's you return your bundle for a full refund if you think that cloth isn't for you, so what's stopping you? Ask your hardest questions in the comments below!
  • Because I think we can all agree that there are few things better than a sleeping baby. Even on his most terrible days, I still like to sneak into his room at night and look at him sleeping. I often need to see him asleep to be reminded that despite his antics and incessant use of the word no, he's still just a little baby. My baby. He will always be my baby. 😍
  • His new favorite hobby is going out to the garden and eating raw asparagus. My parents probably thought they'd have tons of asparagus this season but not with this guy around πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ he is literally a fiend! Also it just doesn't get cuter than running around a garden naked, am I right?? Who else is LOVING spring?
  • It's beginning to look a lot like SUMMER over here and I am loving it! I'm putting together a summer bucket list over on the blog and would LOVE some input from my fellow mama's! What is on YOUR summer bucket list?? ALSO! Planning a beach trip to South Carolina so fill me in on all the best places to go with little ones (or in date night)!!!
  • Holy cow folks, we are officially US residents! The past year has been stressful and emotional and tumultuous but now we're here and just waiting for Adam to join us! We've been playing on the farm and Hudson has been eating asparagus fresh out of the garden and I feel at peace. It was obviously so hard to leave a place that is/was our home but this is the start of a new, exciting chapter with our growing family and oh my goodness at 24 weeks pregnant I am beyond emotional and in love with my babies (plural OMG). It's just that feeling that all this work we've put in is finally churning out something incredible and beautiful.
  • Just gonna leave this here because it's Easter and he is the cutest thing I've ever seen. Happy Easter, frands! Hope you have a blessed day. 😊
