Your life before baby vs. your life after baby. Your life before and after. The days of not taking yourself incredibly seriously, being a bit immature, having less responsibility & living for only yourself. Then you welcome a sweet little one into the world and you realize the transaction that has taken place. The magnitude of what has occurred.
And we wouldn’t change it for anything.
Things that made me nervous as a new mom and why they don’t make me nervous anymore. So much has changed in four years. As a new mom I was nervous, I second-guessed myself, I had little confidence in my decisions and most of the time I felt like I was asking all of my mom friends for advice & help. The third time around it is a whole new ballgame. I want to encourage you new mamas. You new dads. It gets so much easier! As time goes on you will settle into this new role. You will be confident that you are the mama and you know what is best for your child.
You will get in your groove & you will soar!
I have swaddled all of my babies and even invented & perfected the double swaddle. My babies all wanted to be swaddled long after their little friends grew out of it and I was great with that. By baby number three I know what blankets are my favorite! Michelle also did a great post of all of the Disney Baby Swaddle Blankets available here! Here are a few of mine and Apple’s favorite swaddles!
Traveling with a baby is a lot different than the pre-baby days. This time us parents have to think about nap schedules, places to feed the baby, refrigerators for stored milk and baby food, plugs for breast pumps or formula storage and quiet spots for the pack n play.
After having three little ones, I have compiled a list of my favorite spots to take a baby. Some simple & some more extravagant. Enjoy!
With two girls in the house I have a big soft spot for squishy babies, frilly swimsuits and spring break! Here in Texas the hot summer sun is already out and my kiddos are ready to bring out the sprinklers, water table and fountains! As a first time mom, I was a bit overwhelmed with all the options but now after having my second girl, I know what I like! Amy also did a fabulous Disney swim post of all the incredible options on Disney Baby right now!
Grab a towel and journey with me through a few of my favorite swimsuits for your little lady!
