Hey, hey… mom life aint easy, but it is also fun! Now I’m a fan of shopping, but I’m not a fan of spending money on things I don’t use and don’t love. Today launches my new Monday series : Mommy must-haves! I’ll feature a number of my mom favorites- some will be for mommy and some will be for the babe. Enjoy!
My contractions began around 9am and continued all through Sunday. They were fairly consistent yet also inconsistent. However, as the day progressed, so did the intensity of the contractions. But it was all manageable. I breathed through them.
My daughter is obsessed with donuts! So for her second birthday we did a Donut Party! I can easily go overboard with Pinterest ideas, and invite everyone and their mom to parties. This year, I wanted to do something more low key, mainly because I am 9 months pregnant! It was actually the most perfect party. Low key, super cute, and super fun!
I get asked A LOT about nursing my toddler, nursing while pregnant, and nursing so here are some answers to common questions that I get!

So I wanted to share the good and bad of what as brought us here. I’ll compare my different experiences so you can see why we have come to this point.
While my first birth experience was not an easy one, I am thankful for the postpartum care that I received as a new mother. I'll break it down into the three areas of care: my recovery, jaundice, and breastfeeding.
If you would’ve told me two years ago that I would consider a home birth I would’ve laughed in your face! I am NOT that kind of mom! I’ve been too traumatized by my profession and hearing birth horror stories on a regular basis.
Let me share my first birth experience.
